I have a PC with 2 GBs of RAM, running W2K, primarily. I had avoided upgrading from the Firefox 3.x.x series ( or 5 ? ) because it was my understanding that it was the last one suitable for Windows2000. Not long ago, I got an automatic robot request from Firefox to update, and tried to make sure it was still within the compatibility range for W2k.

I thought that I was getting a minor update to a W2K version, but instead, have Firefox 12, which has totally disrupted my internet activity because it constantly bogs down into barely running, or else freezes up for long periods, and frequently crashes.

I want to roll back to whatever I'd used before this disaster. And if there's any special ways to do that, I want to know how it works. Thanks.

The latest versions to work on w2000 are 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. Wich to use, and why?

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.… (read more)

Forced to use the windows 2000 OS. By release date 24.8.1esr is identical to 31.1.0esr (not working on w2000) and close to 32.0 (newer than 28.0) So, between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr, wich is: - faster - safer - less resources - better rendering - accept more new addons/extensions/plugins - has better chances to become obsolete (die) the latest

I an stucked on windows 2000 for an undefinite period in the future and I wish to be able to use the best browser Firefox has to offer.

I use the PORTABLE VERSIONS, at some point, I could share the same profile between 28.0 and 24.8.1esr. I guess they can share alternatively the same files in the profile folder ?

How to get rid of entire Yahoo toolbar; it got in after Firefox 4

After I installed Firefox 4, I got some sort of message asking if I want yahoo as home page (I think that's the way it went). I accidentally clicked on the wrong thing. I still have the same screen that I always had & wanted come up when I boot up, but now I have, just beneath t he bar with the back/forward buttons and the address bar and google search bar, a full bar across of yahoo stuff. It messes me up because, when I'm in yahoo email, it opens a nuisance window that won't go away.

How do I delete the yahoo tool bar invasion and get rid of its invasive, nuisance windows? I don't want any of it on my screen. I've gone to yahoo all along via my bookmarks, and that's all I want. Also don't need the word "yahoo" in my firebox bar (the one that has file-edit-view-history-bookmarks-tools-help).

Please put your reply in simple, low-tech terms. Thank you.

I want to use the QuickTime plugin for Firefox, but version 7.1 is blocked, and version 7.2 doesn't support Windows 2000.

I'm fine with running 7.1; the risk is very small, and I'm willing to accept it. Or does someone have another solution?

Tonight, when I loaded my browser, all my web pages came up without any background color- primarily just text on the same default system color background for all pages- this is fine for some simple pages, cause they load faster, but other pages like Facebook for example, I lose some of the graphical page elements, and that's not good! I'm not sure how this happened- all my pages going kinda `text only' (not totally- some foreground pictures load), and I'm not sure how to change it back- please help! I'm using 3.5.15 on a P4 tower.

Firefox V18 is installed on a laptop running Windows XP, & has suddenly stopped working, after working ok since being installed. It now displays a blank page when you click on the homepage icon, plus entering a url brings up the word connecting, in the tab, but then displays a blank page with the words new tab in the tab at the top of the page. IE works ok, as does a portableapps copy of firefox 3.5.17.

I have tried re-installing V18.0.1, with no success, I have even tried uninstalling firefox, deleting all remaining folders & running a registry cleaner to see if their was anything causing the install to fail. Firefox still fails to work after all this.

The laptop has been kept uptodate with regards to upgrades, & I have tried doing a system restore to earlier breakpoints, but with no success. Any ideas? TIA

Comcast is my home page for Mozilla Firefox. After entering my Comcast ID and password I am taken to their email preview page. At that page is a tab to enter full email. You need to get there to open and create email messages. When the email tab is selected at acts like it will open email, but it only returns to the preview page.

I can open email using the same process using Internet Explorer.

I am using Spybot - Search & Destroy(ver, 1.6.2.46) which can Immunize Firefox(6.0.2) from bad websites for Coolies, Images, Installations & Popups. After I do this operation in Spybot - Search & Destroy and then open Firefox the bad websites appear in the "Exceptions" for Popups and Images as BLOCKED which is a GOOD thing. However when I CLOSE Firefox and then Open it again it is No Longer Immunized and the "Exceptions" are empty. I then have to used Spybot - Search & Destroy again to Immunize Firefox. I know this worked in Firefox ver 3.6 and I think 5.0, but i just noticed this today when i was looking at Firefox "Options".

Sometimes when I try to display the list of e-mails in my Yahoo mail I get the message noted with three word/symbol responses; Email, SMS or Instant Message instead of the email list. I can not get away from the message without leaving mail subsystem. Even if I select one of the responses offered, nothing happens. If I try to "save" the message, it shows it as a Firefox file? Yahoo doesn't seem to know anything about it but I did find a report of the same problem on Maxthon Forum with a snap of the screen image. I downloaded to jpeg and can forward it if you want to see a sample of the problem.
