My question describes the problem. I have this old MacBook I travel with and want to see if there are things I can do to it so that I can update Firefox which probably requires me to be able to update the operating system to El Capitain. I have an iMac at home which is up to date in everyway but I hate to through out this high functioning but old MacBook if it can be bought into the modern world.

Thank you

Hello ,

i am using Firefox browser on most of my devices and i really like it , but lately i noticed some shortcomings (plugins no more working outside Firefox ESR starting with FF52) and since i often visit RT noticed that embedded videos that refer to Twitter won't work on my systems that are limited to Firefox 45 on Macintoshs with MacOS X 10.5 till 10.8. Mac OS 10.9+ can install Firefox 45+ eg FF 52 or above , but for example on Mac that is running Osx Lion 10.7.5 and FF 45 this problem appears.

Here is a link to a site with embedded video that works on such a system https://www.rt.com/uk/441856-passenger-rant-rynair-flight/

instead when the embedded video is linked to twitter it won't show the video, like here https://www.rt.com/sport/441844-mourinho-temper-chelsea-khabib/


Is there anything i could do to make the video playable on Firefox 45?

Thank you very much for your great work at Mozilla!

I need to use a website which requires me to have a browser with 128-bit encryption. I don't know what my firefox browser's level is. the "about firefox" box on my desktop says my current is Yahoo!edition yahoo-1.20. It also tells me it can't be updated. Thank you. PS: I've tried to use safari to go to this US government agency website, but safari won't "safely" open that page. I can get to that .gov website with firefox, but need to know answer to level of encryption.

For years I've used Firefox and the AllAboutBirds.com website with no trouble. A few weeks ago Firefox started freezing up whenever I used the website. The website is for bird identification and has videos, sound clips, comparative photos, etc. FIrefox usually doesn't freeze up immediately when the website opens, only after I've clicked a link or two -- but it doesn't seem to matter which links. I just updated Adobe Flash and that does not help. As noted above, I can use the website with Safari, but I prefer to use Firefox. This does not happen on any other website I've visited.

Any suggestions welcome. Thanks!

This is more trouble that having to go to your home page to click on the envelope. When I click on my mail icon on my desktop, a request for my password come up and it only recognizes my i-phone. Once I put in the "key" it doesn't help me use my desktop like it did for years. The only way I can access my mail on my desktop is click on Foxfire which goes to the Yahoo home page and then click on the envelope. Why did this change and can I ever use my desktop "inbox" icon again?
