My PC won't upgrade to Win 10 or current Linux. Win 7 is no longer available. Why are you abandoning XP users? Stand up to Microsoft !

My hardware won't support a newer OS than Windows 10. It is so bloated it would slow my system to a crawl. I can't even install the newest versions of Linux. And I HATE Linux. I'd LIKE to run WIndows 7, but Microsoft yanked all the LEGAL copies from the market before I could get a copy I won't buy a download and key from some shady website, only to find out the key doesn't work, or has been sold to 100 different people. Besides, the cheap hardware builder versions are NOT legal for end users.

I can't afford a new machine.   Nor do I want one.  My XP machine runs fine.   Imagine if Ford suddenly took your steering wheel away from you and told you you can't drive the car anymore.   People would have a fit.  They depend on their cars.  We depend on our computers too.  I fail to see why Mozilla can't maintain updates for Firefox under XP.  How many people are going to be writing "exploits" for XP, if it is the obsolete system you always say it is?  Mozilla is just bowing to pressure from Microsoft.

As I work in the Aviation Industry winch is highly regulated and we have prepared Weight and balance programs using Windows XP we can not change them as the cost of doing so would be over the hill, Also may of the Accounting Programs and other world Airlines are retaining XP because of it proven reliability! As a result We do not want to move form XP and we certainly will not let Micros soft run our Industry to!

Also We also run "Out look Express" as our E-mail program and are not prepared to move to less convent Programs like " M.S.Out Look"

I use 2 PC: on both of them I use firefox and I use sync to keep updated info between them. On the first PC, everything works fine. On the second one, when I open Firefox it is never sync and I always need to put my password again (and often to confirm the access by e-mail).

I set on this PC to keep my password saved, to keep Sync connected... but it doesn't. I searched online, I found some topic about, I tried with solutions that worked for other users, but nothing... on the second PC sync doesn't stay connected.

In this PC, I run Firefox 52.9.0 (64 bit), update channel esr (I had problem with "normal" update channel before).

thank you very much

I'm using Firefox 52.9.0 for Mac. A couple weeks ago I began having problems accessing LinkedIn.com (never had issues prior to this).

• I have no problems accessing LinkedIn.com with Chrome or Safari.

• NO new Add Ons have been installed.

• I do NOT access the site with a bookmark (I click links in emails sent to me from LinkedIn, or I access the site directly with the URL).

• After experiencing the problem, I upgraded to Firefox 52.9.0 -- The problem still persists.

• Cookies have been removed.

• History deleted using "Forget About This Site" (History > Show All History -- Right click on the site > Forget About This Site).

I got excited after using "Forget About This Site" because I was able to access LinkedIn.com. BUT... When I logged in, I got a blank screen with the Logo & a progress bar moving from side to side (see attachment). The site never loads.

Then, I tried accessing the site in a Private Window (right click on the link & select "Open Link in New Private Window"). I was able to access the site AND log in just fine. What The ****?!?! While excited that I can finally use Firefox to access the site, why do I need to use private browsing all of a sudden?

Sorry, but formatting doesn't hold up in this text box.

Most of what I see is Greek to me, but maybe it means something to you.

BTW, I am running Windows 10 64-bit with the most frequent version of the Tor Firefox Browser (7.5.6 (based on Mozilla Firefox 52.9.0) (32-bit)).

Please let me know if you have any suggestions or ideas on how to correct this problem.

saving url to "other bookmarks" results in "access denied: you do not have the rights to do this" when an unrelated program wordperfect saves file as microsoft word 97 file, where previous to saving to "other bookmarks" the same file would save as without problem.

"access denied..." is a documented wordperfect problem when converting to word 97, which can be single instance corrected by saving as another word format then immediately re-saving as word 97; though has only been a problem with my system if first saving url to "other bookmarks".

the only working fixes found are - restore system drive to previous backup and discontinue use of "other bookmarks" - run wordperfect as administrator - turn off user access control

baffled as to how saving a url to "other bookmarks" could affect another program -- any suggestions?

I am stuck with Firefox ESR 52.9.0 solely because Google has not upgraded the Google Voice plugin for Gmail to be compatible with the latest Firefox version. (I also like Google Voice's small, unobtrusive, compact dialer in the bottom corner of the screen that enables me to read and work on other things while connected to a call, not the big full sized screen of Google Hangouts.) I know I'm not the only person with this issue.

It is becoming increasingly problematic to use Firefox ESR v52.9.0 with several other websites, which do not fully function because the websites' webmasters have upgraded their sites to be compatible with the latest Firefox version, not FF ESR.

It is also an embarrassment to have to contact the various company webmasters to request they modify their websites to be backward compatible with Firefox ESR because only one app (Google Voice) is holding me back from upgrading to the latest Firefox. So far, the companies whose webmasters I've contacted have cheerfully complied, but how much worse will this get before Google upgrades Google Voice?

I'm writing my question to Mozilla because I cannot get Google to respond, and I thought I might have better luck with you. I've read somewhere that Firefox and Google have been collaborating to fix this issue with Google Voice. If you have any information when Google Voice will work with the latest and greatest Firefox version, please let me know. Thanks Using: Wiindows 7 SP1, all Windows updates applied; latest Google Voice plugin with FF ESR 52.9.0

I uninstalled Kaspersky a week ago and checked to ensure that there were no cookies or add-ons or plug-ins under that name remaining anywhere. All files, traces, and influences of Kaspersky should be gone. But some (only some) websites are continuing to route through Kaspersky, as evidenced by the URL that comes up at the bottom of the screen during the connection. The rerouting is preventing me from interacting with those sites. What else can I do to wipe out Kaspersky and stop anything from routing there? Are there any settings in Firefox that can be changed to circumvent that? Thank you!

This issue has been happening for years, through several upgrades. Finally tired and frustrated enough to write about it now.

I'll close down Firefox, and when I re-open it, it gives me a window and tab scheme from hours (or days, or weeks) ago, not the most recent one that was just shut down. In other words, I'll have shut down certain tabs hours (or days) before, but they reappear when I restart Firefox, and the ones that actually were open, are nowhere to be found. It's like Firefox takes a snapshot whenever it feels like it, but not when I am shutting it down.

What I've had to do to get Firefox to open up from the last section *exactly* how I left it last is go into Windows 7 Process Manager and shut down Firefox from there. Then, when I restart Firefox, it gives me the "Oops, shut down last time didn't go so well..." apology, but at least when I click through, it opens up my desktop exactly how I left it previously.

It seems pretty stupid that I have to do this, so I am hoping someone can enlighten me as to what I am doing wrong.
