Question

Mozilla should be able to provide adequate alternatives for extensions become unsupported through extreme high release frequencies

Hello Firefox Fans,

I have Firefox 3.6.28 still running daily on my PC under WinXP. Do not ask how old it is.

The one and only reason I haven't updated yet is that my favourite extensions does not work on newer versions. It's a very time-consuming process to find, install, and configure them, and since Firefox's main release frequency is constantly increasing, I can never tell how often will I have to do the same task of several hours in the future, if I want my Fox to be up-to-date.

This is why I do not update.

A few weeks before I ghosted my OS and tried to update Firefox to the latest of that time, but the results were so poor that I restored the full backup quickly.

One reason why I do not put my extension list here in the first post initially is that I think it's not the proper way to get the missing info I need if I have to compose a forum post, interact with others and wait for answers to get my Fox being updated properly. The other reason is that I do not post because I want my problem being solved by others, but rather wondering the community's opinion about my question.

Updating Firefox properly is a very time-consuming and annoying process.

Opinions welcome :-)
