The version of Firefox you are running is VERY out of date. Please download the latest version of Firefox (68.0.1) from www.getfirefox.com.

Also, please try to update to the latest version of MacOS for your computer

The version of Firefox you are running is over two years old, and has dozens of known security holes that have been fixed. It also does not have the latest performance and stability updates and is using very old technology. Software never sits still and you need to update to keep it secure.

I don't know why you wouldn't be able to download from SoundCloud, it's a website that won't change because of your browser
