hy! I'm using XP-x86, so the latest version is Firefox 52.0esr A few days ago, I can't use Google search normally, because the search result is displayed as if JavaScript is blocked. Also, I can't change my search settings, the arrow isn't active. I started FF in safe mode, but no change. Any help is appreciated.

I am using the latest version of Firefox (112.02 32-bit) with Windows 10 but am being blocked from certain websites by the Cloudflare security app because it says that my browser is out-of-date. This was particularly embarassing when I was trying to buy tickets for a concert recently and was unable to access the venue's online payment system.

It may be that Cloudflare is confused because I occasionly use an older version of Firefox (52.9.0 32-bit) with an earlier version of Windows. How can this issue be resolved so that Cloudflare does not block legimate access to websites when I am using the most up-to-date version of Firefox?

Figured out the basic issue (from Solutions here) why old Firefox not working on old XP-SP3. Found 52.9.0esr download - but when I run the file, it keeps telling me to "Close Firefox". Used Task Manager - nothing - not Firefox or anything else - is shown to be running. Any ideas? Might not be a Firefox issue, but would appreciate any insights. TIA - Jean

For many years I use Firefox 52.9.0esr on my WinXP computer. And for even more years I have been struggling unsuccessfully with the following problem.

Under "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2b9qepw7.default-1469870616368\cache2" there is a folder named "entries", that is constantly inflating! It is now 49.5 GB huge! I can not delete it. Deleting process does start, but doesn’t continue even for a bit or finishes ever. I’ve tried to delete the cache via Firefox preferences unsuccessfully. Even manually via Windows Explorer, even in safe mode (F8 when the computer starts), even with TotalCommander. The folder’s size just suddenly changes to zero when I click on it, but not the real space it’s occupying on my hard drive. I even uninstalled my antivirus and tried all the methods again – to no success…

I have added a video of what happens on my drive if I click on this folder in low resolution: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E_gqf4s31m7Gr7taW5iUOUzkwe8Oi7iT/view?usp=drivesdk In high resolution: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EaLROHC2p510CvP24nO83wplEkaAgrA9/view?usp=drivesdk

Please help me to solve this problem!

Thank you very much in advance!
