A couple of years ago I posted a query regarding not being able to open pages saved in maff format (of which I have literally hundreds saved). I solved the problem by installing an extended release version of Firefox, 52.7.4, which still supported the maff extension. Et voilà, all my maff files now open.
I have held onto my old XP machine because I have a boatload of legacy graphic programs which I do not want to spend the hundreds of dollars to upgrade to Windows 7 or 10 versions. Recently someone gave me an XP machine which is newer and has a much better processor than my own.
So I figured if I just install Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 I would easily be able to open those maff files I wish to store on the (new) XP machine.
Curious thing, the only version I could find to download Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 came in a zip file with no installer. I mention this because I'm wondering whether it may not be the cause of the fact that I cannot get this version of Firefox to open files with the maff extension. I right-click the file to "Open With" and select Firefox from the list, but it then simply goes into an infinite loop of showing me the Open With dialog box. I even put Firefox.exe into the Send To folder, and the exact same thing happens.
When I downloaded Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 for my Windows 7 machine, it did come with an installer, but I cannot use it for the XP machine because it is the 64-bit version. And for the life of me I cannot find anywhere to download ESR_52.7.4 with an installer.
Anybody out there who could shed some light on this problem?
P.S.: I tried to post this question using Firefox (my extended release version) but after signing in, the page just hangs... and hangs. I suppose this is because I'm using a version of Firefox which Mozilla deems unacceptably outdated. But my argument has been and always will be that there are extensions I cannot live without, so as long as the newer versions of Firefox do not support those extensions, tant pis. I use Chrome 95% of the time.
