I have an old PC desktop which I would like to replace with a newer model. I want to get a used one with Windows 7 on it. I know Windows 7 is no longer supported but I have a lot of old software that I use, some not often, and have no desire to purchase new software. I was told that I could not download Firefox onto a newer PC with Windows 7. Is this true? I do have a laptop with Windows 10 that I use for on line ordering, etc. I like the desktop as it has a decent keyboard and mouse.

I was searching for some music online, and I came across a website. It redirected me to a duplicate page, that is designed exactly like Firefox Addons. Now that site automatically loads whenever I open my Firefox browser and keeps installing an addon without any permissions, even if the "Get addon" button isn't clicked. The URL of the site is https://black-mode-for-browser.site/Dark%20Fox%20%E2%80%93%20Get%20this%20Theme%20for%20%F0%9F%A6%8A%20Firefox%20(en-US).php. Please beware before checking on this link.

Why doesn't Firefox have its own Search Engine?

This means that no matter what i type it just gets ignored and a bunch of random junk with nothing whatsoever to do with my question comes up! I didn't leave google so i could still be stuck with their Search Engine, How the heck does that even make sense????????

Firefox has been putting that "update" thing in the right upper corner 10 times a day,knowing darn well that someday I'll click on the wrong button. Well, sure enough, I clicked on the "update" instead of the other option and now I'm stuck with this new version that I just don't like. I don't even know what the previous version I had was! Does anyone know what was the last version before this major change? I want it back!

A few minutes ago I had this error, I searched all over the internet but nobody gave a concrete solution.

I tried everything: clear cookies, reset firefox, etc.

The only person who gave a solution was to restore windows in a clean installation.

It turns out that for a rare reason my computer woke up with the time misconfigured, I configured it and tried to access some files that I had in google drive, but it showed that error and it had been trying to solve it for 2 hours. Well, it turns out that I had set the time wrong and instead of putting "AM" I put "PM" that is to say, it was 12 hours apart.

I configured everything again and with the correct time and that solved the problem, I hope someone will use this information.

I have been having trouble with reader view since I downloaded Firefox 90. Usually, I adjust the enlargement size and then print to read under better lighting. Now, if I adjust to anything other than 100%, reader view cuts off part of the bottom of the page. This is very frustrating.

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.

I see this EVERY TIME I start Firefoo. I've been fucking around on the Internet for months' 'searching for a solution to this problem, and nothing works. YOU need to fix this and put out an update that solves it.

A Firefox (all versions since one year) freezes problem. It started freezing, other browsers do not do that. The freezing stops when hardware acceleration is disabled. No hardware changes in the PC, other programs work normally. Changing video drivers does not help.

I would like to keep the hardware acceleration going, otherwise the browser is slower. If the problem can not be fixed i will look for another browser.
