When browsing with Firefox, I'm prompted to download a newer version of Chome.

Posted

On a second-hand (custom-built) computer, and while using Firefox I'm periodically prompted "This version of Chrome is no longer supported. Please upgrade to a supported browser." From what I can tell, the banner primarily pops up on Google-related sites like Gmail and Google Drive. Google Drive also seems unresponsive. I can browse, but not make any changes to the documents. Not sure if this is a bug, a feature of Google, or something going wrong with the computer.

Thanks! That seems to have solved the notification problem. Google Drive is still giving me trouble with intractability, not being able to copy from a Google doc, but that may just be Google thing.
