New update unexpectedly quit in the middle of the install. New update was not installed, but old version was still available, but without any user files. Bookmarks, history and preferences were reset to default. In my frustration I tried a system recovery to a point just before the install, but i forgot user files are not part of the recovery. I hope they can be recovered if they have not been overwritten.

Specifically does mozilla HAVE an email address to forward spam to? Abuse at or spoof at or something similar? I found a web form but with limitations on text area I cannot possibly include the entire, header included bit of junk.

Further, I run all my junk mail through spamcop and it came up with an abuse department of... c.exacttarget.com SO seriously doubting it came from Firefox OR mozilla.

However, my computer is still running a dated OS. (mountain lion.) So my version of all browsers is dated. I can't use safari anymore. Firefox is aweful, crashes daily! I send in reports and use my junk email to do it just in case someone actually answers. No one ever has... (not a great selling point for firefox. When I finally do upgrade I'll go back to safari.) And that's the one that got the so called "offer" from Firefox for something or other. That's why I'm here. Is this junk or not? And if this IS a phishing scam claiming to have come from firefox, I would hope they would want to know about it.

Please advise. I will hang onto this bit of spam until someone has a chance to post back. Thanks.

Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

Every earth cam went black several weeks ago. Mind you I still use an old OS. (NO intention of upgrading it either.) So my version of firefox is 48.0.2 And I even tried with Safari though that one is so dated now I rarely use it.

I tried on two computers. One got the most recent update of flash just the other day, AND the most recent update of java. The other I rarely use and has not had those last two updates. BOTH stopped being able to view earthcam at about the same time.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode so all the adblockers and what not are off. Same issue. Even tried looking at earthcam on my cell phone and got the same black screen.

So could this be some problem with AT&T? I read that somewhere that once that person drove away from home it worked on their phone. I don't see how that would matter, if their carrier is ATT wouldn't their phone just use the nearest ATT tower? I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

One last thought, earthcam is flash based isn't it? What are they going to do when flash goes away for good by 2020?

Why do you think it's good to force me to upgrade my operating system so that I can have the upgraded firefox? I will lose the use of programs that are important to me and CANNOT be replaced! There is NO free alternative to MPEG Streamclip. CopyPaste is no longer available. I use these, and other perfectly functional programs on my dinosaur Mac OX 10.8.5. The upgrades do not provide me with discernable added value. As you can see, this is a rant.

Yesterday, I encountered a problem in which I was unable to delete bookmarks in Firefox 48.0.2. Prior to encountering this problem, I did change my Cached Web Content to Limit cache to 256 mb of space. I do not know if this is what caused the problem. Since first encountering the problem yesterday, each time thereafter that I tried to delete a bookmark, a spinning wheel appears, spins for a few seconds, and then the spinning wheel disappears and the bookmark is still there, not deleted.

Please advise as soon as possible.

Thank you for your help. Cmill
