Can I install the latest version of FF on Windows 7 Starter

Posted

Can I upgrade version 6.0.2 to the current version - 22 I believe, on a netbook running Win 7 starter? I have an Atom N450 processor @1.66 gHz and 2 MB RAM with about 40 GB left on my HD. Can I do the upgrade with that configuration? Will it be faster than the version I have now?

Thanks!

Yes you can and yes it will be faster. Update to Firefox 22 to get the fastest version of Firefox, and install updates as they come out to stay on top of performance and security. Update Firefox to the latest release

No issue - I just wanted to be sure I could do it before I even tried. Wondered if my system was going to be up to handling the newest FF. But no - no install issue - yet!
