Error Code: Script: chrome://wot/content/search.js:360 causes Firefox 8.0 to freeze

I had also recently had Google Chrome installed on my XPro 32-bit operating system via the backdoor when upgrading my Real Player. I thought it might be a conflict with Chrome & Firefox as Chrome wanted to be my default even though I tried very hard to remove that default. I removed Chrome but let it have a toolbar on my Internet Explorer ver 8.0.6001.18702. I still have the freeze although not as often. Do I have to wait for a Firefox update to fix this like my similar conflict with my AVG 2010 that took several updates on both sides to resolve?

I have tried to install Firefox 3.5 and 8 on a Win ME system - both fail with "Setup causes an error in Setup". Firefox 2 was okay. Messages from Firefox suggest an update is necessary,but I can't because setup does not work. I also cannnot provide FEEDBACK - because it suggests I need "The latest version" which I cannot install "simply" as it suggests on the feedback page. Is this a probplem with ME - as other browsers like IE and Chrome latest versions do not seem to like it either....am I stuck with old versions?

Changes to the 'safety' of FF mean that some HTML script applications will not allow loading of a file from your own hard drive through Windows File Picker. This eliminates use of FF for some hobby research.

I've tried to install 2.0.0.20 [latest version with this working] and then use current versions for on line. However they interact, using the same profile and preferences.

Can I have two, independent versions on the same computer? How is it set up to keep them completely 'isolated'? Two drives are available [and tried!]

Until I can solve this, I've reverted to version 2-20

Thanks!

Since I'm running Windows ME everything is somewhat limited. At the FF Homepage it states I should upgrade, however I know this not an option for me. What can I do to protect myself from obtaining viruses and what-not while running the FF2.0? I understand it's an old operating system but upgrading to another is not an option for economic reasons, in short, I'm poor, so I have to work with what I have. I like FF way better than IE and would like to continue to use it.

Facebook (FB) recently restructured their website. After logging on to my FB homepage, some of the graphics are garbled and I am no longer able to post status updates, comment on friend's status updates or pictures, or post pictures using Firefox version 2.0.0.20. I would like to know if there is a newer version of Firefox that will function with a Mac G3 Blue and White desktop running OS 10.3.9 which will be compatible with the new FB? I would upgrade my computer, but have 22+ years of business and tax records that will not function with the newer Mac OS.
