Which version of Firefox should OS X 10.6.8 users preferably use in the future?

Given that v. 47.0.1 is the last one to be supported on 10.6.8, the answer given here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-osx#firefox:mac:fx45

doesn't make it clear whether if it is preferable, IN TERMS OF BEST POSSIBLE FUNCTIONALITY (not necessarily security), to use v. 48 and later ones, or v. 45.x.x.ESR until it runs out in 2017.

This in particular: "Note: Some Firefox features might not be available on ESR." has caught my attention. Is there a way to know which are those features that are not available?

Thanks,

Starting about a week ago, several sites/pages that I've previously visited successfully will no longer load. Most notably, I can no longer get Amazon's "My Cart" page to load. Instead, I get the following message:

    Secure Connection Failed
    An error occurred during a connection to smile.amazon.com. Peer using unsupported version of security protocol. Error code: 
    SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_VERSION
   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

Well, I'm not likely to get much attention from Amazon, and the smaller sites are as confused about this as I am.

I've already tried the "no proxy" setting in FF (no joy) and renaming cert8.db and deleting cert_override.txt (also no joy).

My next test is to disable all of the extensions that I've installed in the past month (but I have to restart, so this post comes first--I'll report back in a reply).

Following a recent update, Firefox will no longer access Google (or any web page via Google.) I get the following error message:

Your connection is not secure

The owner of www.google.com has configured their website improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate.

Learn more…

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

My computer has a Windows 7 OS installed, and I have not previously had any problems like this. I tried to add an exception and the result I got is shown in the screenshot below.

I normally have FF save my previous session and I had quite a number of useful tabs open. For some unknown reason, FF crashed and when I was able to load it again, all my open tabs were gone and I'd like to recover them. I read in a post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1057949) that "Open and closed tabs are stored as part of the session data in the sessionstore.js file in the Firefox profile folder."

Fortunately, I backup my entire HDD weekly and had a backup only two days old, so I mounted that backup as a separate drive letter and went to my FF profile in that backup, but there was no sessionstore.js file to be found. What I want to do is to go into my FF profile on the mounted backup and find the file containing my tabs as of my last backup two days ago, then copy that file into my FF profile on my C: drive. That way, my hope is to be able to reboot FF with all my tabs as they were at that time, as that will give me over 90 percent of the tabs I've lost.

For reference, I'm running FF45 under W7 Pro 64-bit SP1.

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Hello there

I do have a problem with some of the the fonts' rendering without antialiasing, as I think, and that makes them pretty ugly. The problem appears to be only with Firefox; the same fonts on Chrome, Internet Explorer, Brave browser or even Pale Moon does not exist. When it comes to Pale Moon, it required some setting to be changed in about:config but eventually, everything rendered neatly.

As far as Firefox in concerned, I have tried to use numerous different solutions but none seemed to work. I'll try to list the tutorials that I have tried. My system is Windows 7 x64 Home Premium, Firefox is the latest version from the stable releases, 45.0.1 right now, I think. Laptop is Acer Aspire 5749Z with Intel Pentium B960 and Intel GMA 2000 graphics. I do have the latest drivers for the graphics card installed. Windows' ClearType is on. Hardware Acceleration is currently on, tried turning if off, nothing helped.

Here is an exaple of a badly rendered font: https://i.imgur.com/70uGPQm.png ("Grids") and here is the link to the page: http://purecss.io/grids/

I have tried the following: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/3gtnnq/font_rendering_issues_ff40/ http://www.askvg.com/how-to-disable-hardware-acceleration-gpu-rendering-in-mozilla-firefox-4-0-to-fix-font-problem/ https://support.mozilla.org/pl/questions/1111253 — I have the Windows Updates mentioned here installed. Rest of the tutorials concerned pretty much the same things, i.e. turning the Direct2D on or off.

My thanks and regards Greg

I am using the Firefox Developer Edition which has a very nice Responsive Design View option. When in that mode there is an option to take a screenshot of the currently resized website.

I am wondering if there is maybe a setting somewhere that would allow to take a full page screenshot, instead of only getting the visible part?

I think that would be really handy, many times we need the whole resized design/page to show to the clients, at least from my experience.
