XP SP1 and SP3 are mentioned, but can I run latest Firefox on XP SP2?

Publié

I run XP SP2 and will not be loading XP SP3. I run Firefox 3.6.22 because Roboform suckered me with a lie. When I purchased Roboform, I was "guaranteed all updates AND UPGRADES for LIFE," but when Firefox changed from 3.6, there was an apparent collusion with Roboform so that the new versions of Roboform were blocked from working on Firefox after 3.6 (at the same time, of course, Firefox removed Firefox's password management from the browser), and the customers that Roboform had guaranteed "upgrades for life" were NOT grandfathered in to prevent breaking Roboform's promise/guarantee to them.

I will be switching to Linux, but I will be using LastPass (instead of Roboform) until then. I will never pay Roboform another penny, and I always post my experience with their dishonesty whenever the forum is conducive.

I can switch browsers, but I had just as soon stay with Firefox if you can tell me what version of Firefox will run CORRECTLY with XP SP2 (and be maintained properly)? A link to it would be helpful.

Thank you, Grace Birdsong

The plug-in list below is partially, but not altogether, correct. I use Microsoft Office, and don't use most of the plug-ins listed.

yes, i'm using it for years now and never had an issue with it. you can protect/encrypt your passwords in the firefox pw manager with a master password that is asked once per session (otherwise a person with physical access to your computer could read the passwords).

Use a Master Password to protect stored logins and passwords

As of Firefox 13.0 one needs at minimum Windows XP SP2. The last to work on SP1 was Firefox 12.0

edit: The last security update for Fx 3.6 was 3.6.28 and not 3.6.22

yes, the latest version of firefox (27 at the moment) will run fine on windows xp sp2. all versions of firefox a built-in password manager - i don't know where you heard otherwise - so there is no need to buy external tools for that...

Thank you, Phillip for your reply. It answered my question. Your answer, however, raised another question:

Can Firefox's Password Manager import data from Roboform's password manager?

i don't know of any automated way to do that unfortunately. those addon providers will probably want to lock you into their solutions...

Do you use Firefox's Password Manager? Do you think it is safe?? It's a lot to risk.

Thanks, Grace
