I am constantly getting a message that my Firefox is out of date and will not longer be supported unless i upgrade to the newest version. Especially on Yahoo mail I use every day. I have version 25.0 Mozilla Firefox Edition yahoo-1.24. What else do I need to do to have these websites stop claiming I am not up to date on my Firefox?

Thank you!

I've been trying to update my Firefox (version 3.6.17) so I can still go on YouTube and to just update it. I've already tried to reinstall it, but its the same version. I would like to know if there's a command for terminal to show if I have all the requirements needed in order to download the latest version of Firefox.

Why does firefox not save my weather locations? I set the location at least five times per day

Firefox will not save my locations for weather. Anytime I close the browser, it opens in an area that I do not reside. I have tried many times to save the weather for zip code 36877 or 36874 after deleting the geographic area that appears. Please do not tell me to open the weather site and add/delete location. I am not a dumb ass, but I am ready to change browsers, as this is seems to be getting worse with upgrades.

Starting in the last day or two, every time I start Firefox, in addition to my homepage, I get a nuisance tab that is checking my plugins. I need to disable this stupid function or I will have to discontinue using Mozilla Firefox after 20 years as a faithful Mozilla user. I am happy with, and have no intentions of upgrading, my version of Firefox (3.6.17). I also have no intentions of upgrading my Flash plugin as newer versions are incompatible with an online activity in which I engage.

I have followed instructions in the user forum for changing the status of plugins.update.notifyUser from true to false in "about:config", but it apparently resets itself to true. None of the user forum suggestions correct this problem. If this unwanted, stupid tab cannot be disabled, I guess I will have to abandon Mozilla, both for Firefox and Thunderbird, and pursue options that do not force unwanted content on the user.

In addition, it seems impossible to actually speak to anyone at Mozilla about the problem. So hopefully someone will answer this question with a solution to the problem.

I've tried several times to update using the on-screen instructions. It just doesn't update. I am only semi-computer literate so may be doing something wrong or not doing something. For the past couple of years when it sometimes said I needed to update I'd click the icon. It asked for a password--each time I'd try several (4-6) but none were accepted so I gave up. I now think that I should have asked for help then. How do I update--the boxes say I have "Linux" and "Firefox 35". It says 35 not 3.5. I also have Ubuntu. When I login to Facebook at the top it say "You're using an old version of Firefox that is no longer supported and may be insecure." Please help me.

I now see that as of 8/1, "Jorge" has 'blocked' a supposedly malicious version of Flash. There is a VALID comment from a user, pointing out correctly that this 'block' is badly implemented, and actually causes blocking of LEGIT flash downloads directly from Adobe.com. This is the case with the Firefox approved solution: uninstall Flash and install / roll back to 10.3. Firefox now refuses to recognize ANY flash version. What kind of testing - if any - do you 'software' jockeys use?? Over the last few years, as FF has grown larger and bloatfilled, the 'design by committee' approach is showing its real faults. You seem unable to exercise any kind of real quality control at all. I think, like the other gentleman, I may be FORCED to go to (almost any) alternate browser.

I opened up Firefox this morning and saw the Plug-In tab pop up as well as my normal home page. I managed to successfully update Java but I tried to update Adobe (I downloaded it and then restarted the browser and it still showed up as being out of date and in need of update). I don't know what to do and I want the plug-in tab to go away.
