I still use an XP. I cannot download a Windows 7 Firefox browser if I don't have Windows 7, right?

I am irritated. Your browser is insisting that I update to the newer version, yet I don't have Windows 7. I cannot afford to upgrade to W-7 and I've been told by W-7 that I cannot upgrade my XP OS to Windows 7. So what's a girl to do? How can I bypass that stubborn Firefox update page, and still use the browser that I've been suing so far that works just fine?????????????????????????????

Firefox 8 still works with XP. You can download from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

Where did you read that you can't run on XP?

I was trying to download Windows 7 and was told on the MS site that Windows 7 could not go on an XP. And it is my thinking that if there is some way to upgrade to W-7, that it might be so convoluted and complex that I won't know enough about the stuff to do it myself, and I cannot afford to pay someone to do it for me. I doubt if I even have enough memory left on my laptop. I really need to be able to stay with my old Firefox browser. Can you make this work for me? I can't afford any new computer or new memory, my laptop is maxed out, and I don't think it will work, even if I could download it.

Fx 3.6.24 and Fx 8 both run perfectly on Windows XP(and W 7).

If you want to upgrade to Windows 7 for some other reason you should Google for a Windows 7 forum. Otherwise take fmdeveloper's advice.

Why do you figure you need Windows 7 to Run Firefox 8.0 ?
