Hello. I have windows xp, a very old e-machines hand-me-down computer, and only 368 mb of RAM and a 3.33 GHz intel processor. Even on this very old version of firefox, I am experiencing lots of crashes and error messages. I had a newer version but had to go back to this one as there were too many bugs!
Now I get messages that my version (3.6.8)will soon be unsupported and have no security. I am very poor; I have no money to buy a new computer with all the latest bells and whistles just so that firefox will work: 1 gig of ram is Not gonna happen on THIS computer. SO... what do you suggest we poor folks do?
I have loved firefox for years but it seems to be going the direction Microsoft went: cumbersome, heavy programs, tons of software needed along with tons more memory, things we don't WANT but must have anyway. I guess if you don't have terrabites now, you're not cool. This saddens me and excludes a lot of us who are poor.
This is my feedback and plea for help. I hope you will address my questions and tell me which version of Firefox I can upgrade to that will be supported for longer than what I have presently. Firefox keeps getting slower and slower, the higher the number invented. I use it mainly for search, email, and youtube videos and watching other vids, which I can barely do at it is anymore. I don't want to switch, but will if I have no choice. I also wish for a stripped down application that is very light on my limited resources. I don't need a lot; just a search bar; don't even need toolbars from other apps such as google. Is this possible. even if I did have enough of everything for firefox 8 (which I don't)?
Thank you for any help you can give.
