I am running an older version of Mozilla V 2.0.0.20 on an IBM Pentium III Processor w/ 256MB of RAM and Win/ME - is there a place where I can get a newer release of Firefox - but not the latest. The present Version 24 does not support this operating system. A certain website 'bright.com' does not recognize this version I am using as valid - stating my browser is 'older than dirt' (which it is) and to upgrade.

I changed from a View Sonics monitor to a Samsung 20." I've tried changing resolutions to no avail. When I click on Tools>Options>Advanced, I'm supposed to get a full window. The bottom half of mine is cut off and I cannot set FF to be my default browser. Anyone know what to do? Many thanks and may the Fox keep wrapping his tail around the globe.

I want the old download box! Searching around your support forum I have come to the conclusion that it is permanently out. I do NOT care how vulnerable older versions are so you can spare the lecture. I NEED the older version, is there one i can download that has the old style download window? Otherwise, I'm definitely converting to full-time Opera. Seriously. Sorry if I'm coming off like an asshole, but this is a depressing day.. the reason I began using this program was because it WASN'T a clone of chrome and IE... now all you browser developers got uniformed faster then the media does during a false flag operation.

im using waterfox latest update. (just downloaded it after a routine reformat)

I have installed an older version of Firefox (v. 19.0) ... It still allowed for the "Favicon Picker" add-on to work properly. Then I change the favicons to display the way I want them ... I then export bookmarks in HTML (including favicon files) ... Then I can update to the latest version of Firefox (or Waterfox) and import my bookmarks via html ... every thing is perfect, until the first time I click on a bookmark with a custom favicon ... immediately it is replaced by the sites favicon. Can I stop sites from automatically including their favicons when I visit their pages? Is there a userChrome line that someone can feed me? Any ideas? Thanks for reading.

Running Firefox 37.0 on Windows XP. Today, the address bar (where you can type in web addresses) and the search bar are totally useless (with no search options available, not a Yahoo or Google in sight) . I've been running Google Chrome all day because I consider this version of Firefox to be crippled. You can type in the search/address boxes provided, but nothing happens.

My firefox browser will not open, so I can not try most of the solutions recommended. I do not want to lose stored information such as bookmarks and pass codes so would unstalling and reinstalling cause me to lose that information? I need to speak to a person to help with this, but do not know how to go about it. Should I be contacting Norton or Mozilla?

Hi there The most recent update for #Firefox has a "bug fix" (1565315) for which the access to details are denied. That's peculiar for an open source project. The bug is about Russian users having their default search engine changed. Is this just a geolock? VPN didn't work. I like to be able to view the details of any update I'm installing, for obvious privacy reasons. When will these details be made available so I can update? Thanks.

I have built a simple website (www.badtothebone.wtf). At the bottom of each page on the site, there is text "Call from your WebRTC enabled browser - " and below that a click2dial link - "http://click2dial.org/u/YWRtaW5AYmFkdG90aGVib25lLnd0Zg==". This works well and as intended on current Developer and Canary versions of Chrome and on Opera Developer. In Firefox Nightly 36.0a1 (2014-11-11) I can hear the destination ring after the "enabling the microphone" step, but there is no further audio in Firefox. Call logs indicate the call did connect to the destination (where a message is played and a message may be left).

I'm seeing a really weird issue - https://rs2018.raffworks.com/ - on Firefox PC only, after opening a couple of the items up, the scrollbar completely stops working. Sometimes one item, sometimes three or four. But then bang! the scrollbar just locks up completely and it's impossible to scroll the page.

Has anyone experienced anything like this? Firefox on macOS is fine.

I can't access the internet via Firefox, which automatically updates itself on my computer. K12, the online school I work for, says it is not "compatible" with Firefox versions above 3.6. Why can't I keep 3.6, since the grading tools I need are the easiest to work with?

How can I get 3.6 back on my computer?

I like to troll on Facebook like all with too much time on their hands. I've discovered something funny happening.

I have 2 laptops. One an XP dinosaur running Firefox (x86 newest 33.0?), the other running Nightly. I'm using Nightly now.

When I'm on Facebook on ol' trusty, I like to copy/paste emoticons (smileys) from other sites. This has always worked smoothly.

On my x64 Nightly, Facebook appears to run smoothly but the the "symbols" website won't allow me to copy. Just a small black square appears when I try to select an icon.

Here's the rub. Does the "broken" website behave so because I'm running Nightly - W8.1 and WTP, both x64. or is nightly unable to interpret the site correctly??
