I recently updated the newest Firefox version, at least I think so. I watched the Video about creating and accessing bookmarks. Before the latest version I created many folders and placed websites of many non-profit organizations and other arts resources. Now, when I click the star the follow occurs: Star turns blue and moves to clip board? icon. First option: View bookmark side bar; Second: Show All Bookmarks; Third: View Pocket List (I don't use Pocket); Forth: Bookmarks Toolbar; Fifth: Other Bookmarks; Sixth: Show all Bookmarks. These are fewer options than listed on the Firefox bookmarks video. When I click: Show all Bookmarks a grey and white empty box appears with the the top title Library. When I click Show All Bookmarks, nothing occurs. What's also odd is that when I bring up a website like nypl.org the star turns blue. But I can't find that bookmark, only listed, without a name, of 157

My question pretty much says it all.

I constantly get a message saying my firefox is "critically outdated." But when I try to download the latest version, message says I need a newer OS. But I CAN'T get a newer OS.

I have MacOS 10.8.5. Is there a newer version of mozilla I can use? I have 48.0.2.

So what are my options?

Specifically does mozilla HAVE an email address to forward spam to? Abuse at or spoof at or something similar? I found a web form but with limitations on text area I cannot possibly include the entire, header included bit of junk.

Further, I run all my junk mail through spamcop and it came up with an abuse department of... c.exacttarget.com SO seriously doubting it came from Firefox OR mozilla.

However, my computer is still running a dated OS. (mountain lion.) So my version of all browsers is dated. I can't use safari anymore. Firefox is aweful, crashes daily! I send in reports and use my junk email to do it just in case someone actually answers. No one ever has... (not a great selling point for firefox. When I finally do upgrade I'll go back to safari.) And that's the one that got the so called "offer" from Firefox for something or other. That's why I'm here. Is this junk or not? And if this IS a phishing scam claiming to have come from firefox, I would hope they would want to know about it.

Please advise. I will hang onto this bit of spam until someone has a chance to post back. Thanks.

Yesterday, my Firefox History browser stopped saving almost all pages. The only pages it does save are ones like this: Firefox pages. I have no idea why it's doing this; I haven't been doing anything differently. I'm using an old Macbook - Mac OS X 10.6.8 - if that's relevant. I'm like a 95-year-old from the early 90s when it comes to technology, so please dumb it way down. Thanks.

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

Hi

I recently had to change computers. I was using an older Firefox version which was the highest it could go on my older Mac OS with version 48.0.2

On my new computer I am using version 62.0.3

Can I migrate my saved login information from my older version of Firefox? I have my old hard drive accessible, but I'm not sure how to find the login or point my newer version of Firefox to find the old saved logins.

Thanks

Was dealing with T Rowe Price personnel re: new firefox download and was directed to attempt down load via their provided link. I had already explained that a previous effort on my part had suggested the new firefox (62.0.2) was for Mac OS 10.9 (or higher) and that my OS 10.6.8 was likely a "no-no". After some arm twisting I did the download. The resulting firefox icon (associated with the dmg) is overlaid with the international circle/slash that suggests it is not to be used. Am I correct that this is what this odd icon is intended to convey?

Thanks in advance. Rob Walter

I'm running an old AMD P4 equivalent that doesn't have the SSEE capability I think it's called so I can't upgrade above firefox 48.0.2 which I have. I only use it for web search but occasionally I like to browse youtube but now I can't as I can only go up to flash player 29 and firefox blocks it. I got around it once by uninstalling flash and firefox then re-installing both, but that doesn't work now. Can you help? I'm not worried about security issues on this machine as it's for leisure only with no personal/sensitive data on it.

Thank you in advance

(GEES I HAD this whole thing typed, THEN got the prompt to confirm my emai? NOW IT IS ALL GONE? Holding out little hope.)

So fine. RE typing.

Earthcam all went black several weeks ago. Not one will load.

Old OS here, (mountain lion.) So firefox is version 48.0.2, the highest I can go without suffering with Apples later OS versions.

I tried with safari too. (BOTH worked then both stopped at the same time.) I have two computers. The one I'm on now has just had the latest flash update installed, and the latest java. The other has not and both have the same issue.

Tried starting firefox in safe mode with all the adblockers off... same issue.

I even just tried using my phone and got the same black screen.

Could this be something on AT&T's end? Someone posted in their forum that once they get away from home earthcam works. I don't see how, wouldn't a phone still use what ever ATT tower is nearest? Or could this possibly be specific to MY local tower?

Other videos work fine. youtube works fine.

Lastly, if earthcam is flash based, what are they going to do when flash goes away for good by 2020?

Every earth cam went black several weeks ago. Mind you I still use an old OS. (NO intention of upgrading it either.) So my version of firefox is 48.0.2 And I even tried with Safari though that one is so dated now I rarely use it.

I tried on two computers. One got the most recent update of flash just the other day, AND the most recent update of java. The other I rarely use and has not had those last two updates. BOTH stopped being able to view earthcam at about the same time.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode so all the adblockers and what not are off. Same issue. Even tried looking at earthcam on my cell phone and got the same black screen.

So could this be some problem with AT&T? I read that somewhere that once that person drove away from home it worked on their phone. I don't see how that would matter, if their carrier is ATT wouldn't their phone just use the nearest ATT tower? I haven't tried it yet but will soon.

One last thought, earthcam is flash based isn't it? What are they going to do when flash goes away for good by 2020?

I want to thank you for your support of the little guy for all of this time. I used Firefox exclusively right up til the minute I found I have to upgrade my OS in order to use your browsers. I am running an older mac because that is all I can afford. It will not upgrade to any of your products, so unless you would like to purchase a brand new iMac for to use in my dog sitting business, (my only means of income) this looks like the end of a long and lovely relationship.

Back in February, I updated Firefox on my MacBook Pro, OSX 10.6.8. AdBlock Plus was moved into the Old Firefox Data folder. Not realizing this, I went to Add-ons. The closest description I thought was AdBlock Strict, which I installed.

It has annoyed me ever since. Ads load everywhere. When I click on any live link in an e-mail or a website, the popup asks Allow or Deny, I click Allow and nothing happens. Since every time I do something to this computer, I get it wrong and waste a lot of time, I have let this problem annoy me every day and go to work on another, newer MacBook Pro (without ads and with working links).

I've finally had it! I want to get the old AdBlock Plus back and ditch Strict forever.
