When will Firefox 12 be compatible with Garmin Lifetime Udater


The Firefox 12 s/w update reminder says that the Garmin Lifetime Updater will be disabled when I download the new Firefox 12 and that Firefox will be fixed for this problem at a later date. When is that?

hello jmoretti, mozilla is not responsible for the compatibility of third-party addons - so please contact garmins's support to find out if/when there's an update available for their product... though their website states that there's "No web browser required" for this product, so the stand-alone product will likely continue to work anyway (just the integration into firefox will be disabled). http://www8.garmin.com/support/lifetime_updater.html

please also Update Firefox to the latest version available (firefox 16.0.2 at the moment) in order to stay safe on the web.

Update to Firefox 16.0.2. Update Firefox to the latest version. Firefox 9 is extremely old and out of date (insecure). After doing that, update your garmin software
