Greetings everyone,

I know this may sound like a strange question, but I'm very serious.

I just read an article that says Firefox is in danger of being shut down

I've always seen Firefox as the most trustworthy web browser and so I was planning on using Firefox as my main web browser for the long term. However, after reading this article I've become very anxious.

Article link: https://news.slashdot.org/story/20/08/15/1955237/can-firefox-be-saved

I'd really appreciate any advice.

عند تصفح بعض اعدادات الفايرفوكس (مثل جلسات الولوج) لا تظهر اسماء الاشهر باللغة الرسمية المفهومة والمتعامل بها في بلداننا التي تشمل (العراق، الاردن، فلسطين، سوريا ولبنان) وكما هو واضح بالصورة المرفقة. يجب انتظهر اسماء الاشهر كما في ادناه: كانون الثاني - January شباط - Feb. اذار - March نيسان - Apr. ايار - May حزيران - June تموز - Jul. اب - August ايلول - September تشرين الاول - October تشرين الثاني - Nov. كانون الاول December

When browsing Firefox setting, history (names of months) was written with unfamiliar language regarding our region (Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon). Please fix this issue.

While back, firefox users got outraged due to bookmakrs comment section was removed. Users were no longer able to write comments for their bookmarks. Firefox said that websites accessing bookmarks, could also read comments which could contain personal information such as logins and passwords etc.

For that reason FIrefox team decided to force users ditch comment section.

The problem here is not the comments but the fact that bookmarks are accessible to other websites. Firefox is not just allowing but had implemented an API for websites to access bookmarks. This was done so that websites can crawl your bookmarks and push ads based on what they find. It may also be a government imposed function. Either one.

So now that thousands of users personal information was exposed to unknown websites accessing their bookmakrs, firefox resolved this with "taking feature away" ? instead of "remove bookmakrs reading by websites" ?

WTF ? I have no words to describe this moral corruption. They purposly created a function that allows websites to access your bookmarks comments. After enough information was shared they decided to pull the plug to make them selves look good as "we care about your privacy" ? What the hell are you talking about ? YOu care about my privacy ? STOP websites from reading my bookmarks !!!!!!!!!!! Websites should have NO access to ANYTHING. They should not know what browser i have, they should not know what bookmarks i have.

Wordpress just released its Wordpress 5.2 and wants me to update. But when I try to do so, I get this message:

“WordPress 5.2 requires PHP version 5.6.20 or higher. You are running version 5.4.45.”

OK, but how do I install/run a newer version of PHP? Any downloads I find are Windows-based. And I can’t find PHP anywhere on my hard drive or Library. This is massively confusing.

Consumer Reports March 2019 recommeds BitDefender Chatted BD Tech recommended Total Security 30 trial What do you think ?

I am on a very small VA Disability Pension (total and permanent) and can't afford to make an error with my finances.

I am very slowly getting up to speed on all things Computer related (email, browser, search engines, operating systems, etc).

Because I am also 60 % blind (strokes) I also have great difficulty working with computers (PC Win 7, 4 GB RAM, Intel 5 Dual Core, Dell Studio Desktop) (Android Safelink Lifeline Cell Phone)

Today I experienced a server Computer Infection that disabled all Computer Security (Microsoft Security Essentials and SpyBot Search & Destroy) when I tried to do a Full Scan with MS Security Essentials. I eventually regained full security control and successfully completed a Full Scan with both software anti-malware programs.

Just read a Consumer Reports article on Recommended Anti-Malware-Virus Software for PC and MAC Computers. It recommend Bitdefender Free Edition and paid Internet Security 2018 Edition Software.

I almost always use Firefox (original) Browser for just about everything I do.

But I do have IE and Google Chrome installed because I am a Disabled Veteran and I have to use only those browsers to access Federal DOD Accounts and Federal DES Accounts, etc

I just now did a Chat with Bitdefender Technical Support and they said there is no remaining compatibility problem between Firefox and Bitdefender. 100 % Compatible ? . So I did a search using DuckDuckGo, Bitdefender, Mozilla internet sites and found plenty of problems that appear to have been solved recently ?

I am also thinking of upgrading to Firefox Focus and Thunderbird to improve PC & Cell Phone Privacy and Security.

Bitdefender recommends uninstalling all Security Software before attempting to install any Edition of Bitdefender and the Technical Support Person I Chatted with confirmed this.

The Technical Support Person recommended Bitdefender Total Security 30 day free trial version because I was going to install the Free version to test it out and then if it had no problems with Firefox, Google Chrome, and IE then I was thinking of upgrading next month April 2019 to the Internet Security 2019 Edition.

Right now Bitdefender has a special price on the Total Security Edition of 44 USD as apposed to the 40 USD for the Internet Security 2018 Edition

What do you all think I should do ? Install Bitdefender Total Security 30 day trial and then upgrade to paid 44 USD Edition ?

Thank You oh so much for any and all your time and thoughts on this issue of Compatibly Privacy and Security.

Been using the mozillaZine forums off and on for years, but now unable to log in. And when attempting to ask about this thru the Help forum or to re-register, can't get past the security question (How many letters in Mozilla?) - the answer "7" results in "You have provided an invalid answer to the question." (also tried "8" and "seven" and "eight")

Any ideas? Thanks!
