Latest Version of Firefox with Win XP Pro SP 3

Posted

I have Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 and I was wondering if it support the newest version of Firefox and if it runs alright on there. I haven't been updating it since 3.6.28 because I really didn't like the look and my mom was having all sorts of issues with hers and Adobe. I have recently lost my Norton Toolbar that was on the top when the latest update for 3.6 came out. I'm planning on upgrading soon and wondered if it would work well on it. My moms comp her adobe keeps crashing on there and her browser sometimes doesn't want to reopen after being shut down.

Hi demonicvampiregirl,

Have you looked at the system requirements page for Firefox 11:

I think you'll be fine. It has some pretty significant performance improvements over the 3.6 series as well.

Hopefully this helps!

Also if anyone who is currently running it on a Win XP Pro would like to tell me there opinion of it feel free to post it. I'd like to hear from some who are actually running it. :)
