Firefox automatically updates on my computer. During the last update a pop-up told me safety features were no longer available and may leave my computer vulnerable. What does this mean and what can I do. I really want to continue to use firefox but don't want my computer to be "infected".
Firefox 16 is the last version of Firefox that works with Mac OS X 10.5.
WTF. Get a new computer? Are you kidding me?
Yep. The fix is to use Safari. As a long time Firefox user, I am stunned that they'd suggest just going out to buy a computer as a solution. Right. I am writing this from my very Firefox-like Safari browser.
Where have you seen Mozilla suggest buying a new computer?
You have two options here if you want to stay most secure (Safari isn't secure at all as it hasn't been updated in ages on 10.5).
In the pop UP!!! They say Apple stopped support for Mac 10.5 in 2009!!! And I only bought this one in 2009
Mac 10.5 was released in 2007, and Apple released the last update for it and dropped support in August 2009.
Option 2 is not funny... There are software problems too when you upgrade for instance FCPro ?? And a new computer??? Come on. I bought this one in 2009 and intend te work on it for at least some years... They are nog THAT cheap!! And option 1 is not very satisfactory either.
Why does Mozilla do this? Do they have financial profits? Do they and Apple cooperate??
