Firefox keeps popping up wanting me to upgrade. What happens if I don't? I have tried the more current versions, however my computer continually has problems with it. So I have downgraded to 3.6.

Basically, I just want to know what happens if I choose not to upgrade to the most current version? I keep getting pop ups to upgrade my 3.6 but it always takes me to the download for 6.0! I DO NOT want 6.0-it sucks! My computer is not even a year old but Firefox 6.0 caused many issues. Plug ins-all updated/current, but 6.0 would not allow some of my programs run properly. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled 3.6. This version seems to be the only one that does not cause problems! If you need any further information, please eel free to contact me @: removed

I don't know why all these programmers won't get a real job, instead of "upgrading" something that worked very well up to a year ago. Every "upgrade" takes away a lot of functionality - and eliminates useful plugins. Sadly, Firefox seems now aimed at kids who like to play with the computer, neglecting people who use the Internet for BUSINESS purposes. Version 6.0 crashes constantly, sometimes every few minutes, so it became totally useless. I'm switching to Opera.
