Hello,

I am using Firefox with Windows Vista. It is really slow and glitchy. Can I change it?

Do you need a list of the add-ons I have?

This was a reply, but it didn't answer the question.

As of Firefox 53 in March 2017, WinXP and Vista won't be supported any longer. http://www.ghacks.net/2016/09/27/firefox-53-no-support-for-windows-xp-or-vista/

You can install the Firefox ESR 52 version which will get security updates into early 2018, to get "more time" using Firefox.

Hello again. You can install an older version of Firefox, or the ESR version.
