I need add-ons for old version of firefox , I can,t update browser , I can,t buy new hardware , help me

Posted

So many people are very poor and they can not buy new and strong computer hardware , But Firefox force us to use new hardware because new version need new hardware , and new add-ons need new version browser ... It is unfair , What dose add-ons do for us that you force us to buy new hardware? , whereas we have not enough money ... Is not Mozilla a non-profit organization ? For example in Iran, internet censored by criminal government and we strongly need free "VPN add-ons" at old versions of Firefox ... (especially 47 & less)

Thanks for your notice

چرا نمیگذارید از افزونه ها در نسخه های قدیم فایرفاکس استفاده کنیم ؟ ما نمیتوانیم نسخه جدید مرورگر را بکار ببریم چون پول کافی برای خرید سخت افزار کامپیوتر جدید نداریم . مگر یک افزونه چه میکند که اینگونه لازم به بروزرسانی باشد ؟ بگذارید از همان نسخه های قدیم استفاده کامل بکنیم ، مگر بنیاد موزیلا غیرانتفاعی نیست ؟ پس چه فایده ای دارد که مردم را مجبور به خرید کامپیوتر جدید کنید ؟ بطور مثال در ایران اینترنت توسط حکومت جنایتکار سانسور میشود و ما نیاز فراوان به فیلترشکن از نوع افزونه ای داریم ، لطفا اینقدر ما را اذیت نکنید!

سپاس از توجه شما

The latest version of Firefox that runs on Windows XP is 52. You can download it from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.9.0esr/win32/

Unfortunately we can't provide support for old versions of Windows forever, and since Windows XP has not been supported by Microsoft for many years it is not safe to continue to use on the internet anyway.

If you're wanting to use a VPN, I'd suggest using a whole computer VPN, not a free VPN add-on in the browser anyway.

Unfortunately in that case there isn't much that can happen. I understand your predicament but at a certain point we have to make the decision to no longer support certain operating systems. Mozilla provided support for Windows XP for many years after Microsoft themselves stopped, and further support was not possible after a certain point.

I need only an anti-censorship add-on

Until a few days ago "connected over" was useful.

Maybe you could contact the developers of the add-ons you are looking for on the addons.mozilla.org page, if they have a version of their add-on that will work with Firefox 47 ..... (?)

Like this one :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stealthy/

email address :     info@stealthy.co

Or this one :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/anonymox/

Under "More information" => Support Email

If so : their oldest version will work with Firefox 48 and not 47 ......

Extensions like Browsec VPN and anonymoX still have a WebExtension version, so their Legacy version should probably still work.

This add-on is indeed not listed on legacycollector.org/firefox-addons/

Firefox version 48 is the oldest version that add-on will work with; unless you're willing to try one of the legacy add-ons that are listed on legacycollector.org/firefox-addons - you could try to contact the developer, as you mention that it worked just fine till a few days ago .....

This article would suggest that Firefox 49 requires SSE2 and that Firefox 48 still should work. Note that recommended doesn't mean that you actually need SSE2

The System Requirement pages confirm this. Recommended HardwareL Pentium 4 or newer processor that supports SSE2
