I have a problem with my eyes so a cursor that blinks on and off can cause headaches. I found a way of stopping the blinking on all but pdf documents on this laptop—OS Windows Vista (!) but have no idea how to go about it on the new Windows 10 OS laptop. Please, can anyone help me?

Where can I download the 52.9.0esr 32bit version of Firefox in ENGLISH? Clicking the link on the main download page tries to install in my OS language.

I am running Windows Vista and the latest Firefox version does not support Windows Vista. It says Firefox version 52.9.0esr was the last version to support Windows Vista and XP and that I am free to keep using that if I wish. When I go to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ it automatically downloads this version, but when I run the installer it tries to install it in the language of my OS. I want to install it in English. When I go to this page https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ which is supposed to house all the older versions in various languages, I still can't find it there. Can someone give me a direct link to the ENGLISH version of Firefox version 52.9.0esr 32-bit version. The link must be located on Mozilla's server, I don't want to download from a 3rd party sites. Thanks in advance.

The same issue has already been discussed here: https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1209898

Since this week I use Windows 10 (replacing Vista) and after a short while I could google anything through my Firefox browser. I just get a blank screen. So I've looked for solutions and I've followed the description below (...it even seemed to work until the next update):

"Try to rename/remove search.json.mozlz4 in the Firefox profile folder with Firefox closed. You can use the button on the "Help -> Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page to go to the current Firefox profile folder or use the about:profiles page. • Help -> Troubleshooting Information -> Profile Directory: Windows: Show Folder; Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder • http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_folder_-_Firefox Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software (Avira) is causing problems. • http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-start-windows-in-safe-mode/http://www.7tutorials.com/4-ways-boot-safe-mode-windows-10"


Well, after the most recent update today, it is now obvious that this solution is of little use because the same problem has returned and "search.json.mozlz4 " has been reinstalled back in its place again.

I don't think it is a good practice if one has to remove the file again after every update.

So, what can be really done about this?

Thanks!

I want to register at www.bleepingcomputer.com but I need to fill in "reCAPTCHA" to do so. It tells me to update to a new version of firefox that supports reCAPTCHA-control but I am on an older computer that doesn't support the newer versions. I wonder which is the oldest required version of firefox that supports reCAPTCHA? Do I have any other alternatives?

Firefox is showing me a message: "Firefox is critically out of date" under the bookmarks tabs. If i choose "Update Now" button I'm being forwared to this site:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/?flowId=eee4159d-b25c-4c0f-a70c-eac7cfeb611a&fxVersion=61.0.2&isDefaultBrowser=1&searchEngine=ddg&source=heartbeat&surveyversion=56&syncSetup=1&type=button&updateChannel=release&utm_campaign=YourFirefoxiscriticallyoutofdate.Anupdateisrequiredtostaysecure.&utm_medium=show-heartbeat&utm_source=firefox

After I pressed "Download Now" it offers me an older version 52.9.0esr.exe (current 61.0.2 (64-bit)).

Under "Help -> About Mozilla Firefox" it is showing me my firefox is up to date. Why is Firefox telling me i have critical version? What could be wrong?

It appears that Firefox has blocked windows explorer. I use Vista business but want to upgrade to windows 7. I also get messages that say that I need to install Apple application support but cannot do this either. I have deleted I tunes as a temporary measure because I know this will be a necessary action before upgrading Windows. Thanks for any help.

I have been crashing for a week now, ever since Firefox updated to the latest program. I have tried all the suggestions...Safe Mode and unchecking Hardware Acceleration. It still crashes. It even crashes when I am on my home page trying to read the news. No matter what I'm doing, it crashes. And, of course, I have to start all over again once it does. I must have 40 crash reports since the update. I'm so frustrated that nothing works. Does anyone have any suggestions besides chucking Mozilla and changing my browser to something like Chrome of I Explorer? I've been with Mozilla for 20 years and rather stay with them. Thank you in advance.
