Hi,

Right now I am running firefox ESR 52.9.0 (32-bit) in a windows VISTA Home Premium Service Pack 1.

I want to be able to run Java in it because i need it to install interactive brokers software.

I have already downloaded the latest java version from https://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp and got file jre-8u191-windows-i586 as the result of the download.

When i click on the downloaded file (jre-8u191-windows-i586) it does NOTHING.

Please help to solve this.

Thank you

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.

For years I have been using Firefox to log into Microsoft office for emails with no problems. Beginning yesterday, Firefox logs in OK, but when it tries to open my mailbox it gets stuck in some sort of loop. The top left corner message says "working", the bottom left corner message alternates rapidly between "sending ..." and 'waiting ..." This goes on forever: sending ... waiting ... sending ... waiting ,,, Years ago I configured Thunderbird to also log into my mailbox, and this continues to work OK. Access to all other sites that I visit seems to be OK, so I assume that Office changed something that Firefox is unhappy about. I use Windows XP SP3, Updating to a new operating system (say Windows 7) is not an option at the moment, I have too much important legacy software to abandon XP. I will be grateful for any suggestions as to what to do. Thank you.

I've had Setting> Advanced > Firefox Updates > Check for Updates > Never check for updates for years.

About a month ago, by accident (may daughter logged in to my computer on an account that she had't visited for years) Firefox updated. It's created havoc -- even Microsoft Word had to be reinstalled. I've easily lost two days of billable work over the last month trying to rebuild a stable workable configuration.

1. Is there a way to set something so that Firefox will POSITIVELY NEVER EVER EVER update? Can I set some file to some protected mode? Can I delete something? There hasn't been a feature added in about a decade that buys me anything that's worth a risk of 10 minutes of down time. I have deadlines that absolutely do not move, and I cannot afford the unpredictability of updates.

2. If I'm going to lock to some version, is there an "extended extended extended support" version that you recommend? Ideally, it'd be one that still gets security updates (like Windows XP did for many years, and for some security issues, even after the announced end of life in 2012), but I don't need that. I just need stability. Absolute, Rock of Gibraltar stability.

Thanks.

Way way back (like version 17 or so), it was easy to set Firefox so that PDFs opened --

   -- in Adobe Acrobat, in the tab

I had version 50 or so set up this way, and then accidentally "updated" and had to reinstall from scratch.

I have done

    Options > Applications > PDF > open in Adobe Acrobat

That gets me less than I want -- when I open a PDF, I get --

    open a new tab
    download the PDF through "save as" dialog box, and
    leave the new tab white

What I want is what I used to get in the early 2000s --

   -- the PDF open, in the tab, in Adobe Acrobat
   -- with the URL of the PDF in the address bar

Thank you
