Hello,I have Windows XP 32 bit with service pack 3 and Firefox 52.9.1 ESR browser. Now that adobe flash player is history I can't play videos online that are not on youtube. I can still watch youtube videos.

Is there a HTML5 video player or something else I can install on this old system that will work or is that not possible? I know it's an old system but it still does the job.

Thanks.

I am running an old computer using XP. All I want to do on this computer is view Virtual Railfan live streaming videos. When I try to view a video, it says that my browser doesn't recognize any of the video formats available. Then it points me to a html5 faq. When I click on that I go to Firefox home page and it wants me to download Firefox. I already have downloaded the latest Firefox. Is there a workaround for this?

My version of FF no longer works with FB (and quite a few other sites)

Today I see that FB fails to load my profile photo album. I get a spinning circle, description and comments section to the right is blank (or photo loads but no description). I check my connection activity, it's basically at 10 kbps. I run some speed tests, no problem.

So I go to MS Edge, everything on FB loads in an instant.

So the problem is FF. And that's on top of the 50%-100% of CPU that every click on FB produces. I compared it with Edge, 5%-50% of CPU.

So before I give up on FF and switch to Edge, can someone recommend another version of FF that is relatively lightweight for a low spec laptop? The latest version is a no go, as I understand it needs at least 8-16 GB of memory (!).

Thank you.

Hi, I had Firefox on my Thinkpad T60 and it worked. I hadn't used the laptop for sometime but now Firefox didn't work, neither did iexplore or slimbrowser, they all produce the same error. I was able to find an earlier version of Forefox and it works fine but slow. Strangely when I go to goole or slimbrowser those site are found but will not find anything like amazon.com, the message from the File/properties: unknown protocal, size,connection not encrypted, address (URL): res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm#http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=ur2&tag=flashpcom-20&sbSource=linksbar

The event viewer has this message: source cryp32: Failed extract of third-party root list from auto update cab at: <http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootstl.cab> with error: Unknown cryptographic algorithm.

This laptop is 32 bit, Windows XP.

Thank you for your help....would like to update to new firefox browser.

where is the order of the search engines stored

Hi, I am using Firefox 75.0 on Windows 10. I changed the order of my serach engines in the preferences. In earlier versions of Firefox the installed search engines were stored in search.json.mozlz4 and the order somewhere in search-metadata.json, search.sqlite and search.json. So to move the search engines from one profil to another, one could copy those files and everything was as before. Now I only find search.json.mozlz4 in my profil and none of the other files. But just copying search.json.mozlz4 to a new profile, will restore the search engines but not the order I arranged them in. Are those other files not part of the profie anymore?

I have about 90 custom search engines and would like to do the job just once and not 10 times or more for my different installations. So how can I move not only the engines themselve but also their order? Thank you!
