Lolu chungechunge lwabekwa kunqolobane. Uyacelwa ubuze umbuzo omusha uma udinga usizo.

Impossible to d/l current FF version on MAC OS X 10.6.8. Now cannot access essential apps for my job. Should I uninstall v. 3.6.2 and start anew? Data loss?

Kuphostiwe

I have spend innumerable hours downloading new versions of Firefox. They never apply/appear in my system. It was suggested that I completely uninstall the current v. 3.6.2 from my system, and then install the latest FF as if I'd never had it. Is this possible? What might I lose as a result?

Firefox 3.6.2 was released early in 2010 and is really outdated. The current version is 29.0.1

Thanks for your message, Tony. The problem is that my system is not accepting the new versions of FF. I have tried more times that I can recall to download those. So, my question remains: is there a great risk to uninstalling what I have, and trying to install the latest version?

You need to figure why your system won't accept the new download. Does it give an error message? Are you still able to download other things?

Your biggest risk is not having any way of accessing the apps for your job if you finally lose the old and can't get the new version. Why are you changing? Is the old one still working? What type of apps and data do you have actually stored in Firefox?

Firefox 29 should work with Mac OS X 10.6

If there are problems with updating or with the permissions then best is to download the full version and trash the currently installed version to do a clean install of the new version.

Download a new copy of the Firefox application and save the disk image file to the desktop

Your personal data is stored elsewhere in the Firefox profile folder, so you won't lose your bookmarks and other personal data when you uninstall and (re)install Firefox.
