Isithangami Sabeseki

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

I have a Toshiba laptop, Vista OS, 56K dial-up modem. Firefox 29 (BETA) works fine for me. With a dial-up i don't do movies, music, games, etc.

I found BETA under Mozilla's Products. Firefox 28 wouldn't work for this machine, but I am 'talking' to you now using Firefox 29.

Make28Work, Hey that is good.

Thanks for posting this serves as a useful reminder for those on older Systems that Firefox should be kept updated, it should improve, and it will be safer.

But I see know reason why the ordinary release does not work. They have the same system requirements.

Sometimes a clean reinstall solves issues. We also know an awful lot of people have problems because they do not install official versions of Firefox.

Not many of you will be using 56k dialups. I suppose click to play features help you, and possibly you use script or add blockers to try to reduce the amount of unwanted material eating away at the bandwidth. I don't think my Telecom even supports 56k dialups any longer.

Oh and if you are not actively following Firefox development you may get surprises when Firefox 29 comes out, it has changed somewhat ( Australis ) .


Beta Channel

Personally I would encourage any reasonably competent computer user to try the Beta channel of Firefox.

  • It always has a safe and fully supported downgrade path: the Release that nearly everyone else uses.
  • You get new features & fixes earlier.
  • It is a pre release so you are actually testing out Firefox. That helps many others, especially if you report any problems you do run across.
  • If we had a lot more people willing to do this we would probably find nearly all the annoying, and costly issues that cause Firefox Releases to require point releases (Chemspills) to fix problems that were not spotted.
  • Beta will occasionally have problems, but it has already been tested in the Nightly and Aurora channels. It could possibly be classified more as Release Candidate than a Beta Test.

It certainly is not difficult to install Beta. It is fairly easy to downgrade if required. It can not however be recommended to novices or occasional computer users.


For anyone needing official downloads
