How can I get security updates without dealing with Firefox 4 update reminders?

I tried Firefox 4 for awhile, hated it and reloaded 3.6. I keep getting reminders to update to 4 which are bothersome. I have disabled reminders, but how can I continue to get security updates without upgrading to 4?

Install Secunia's free Personal Software Inspector: http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal
You also need to update Flash a.s.a.p. The version you're running right now is a security risk. See http://www.adobe.com/support/security/advisories/apsa11-02.html
Update via http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Also, update Firefox to 3.6.17 because there was a security breach at Comodo which is an SSL certificate provider recently whereby a number of fraudulent certificates were inadvertently issued. These allow a hacker to impersonate any site including online banking and the Firefox version you're running at the moment will not warn you that the site is a fake. The fraudulent certificates were blacklisted in v3.6.17 and beyond.

  • How can I get interactive websites to work with Firefox?

    In the last week many of the interactive websites I've been using for years suddenly stopped working properly. However they do work with Internet Explorer. How can I get them to work again with Firefox?

    In what way are those websites not working?
    Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.
    "Clear the Cache":
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"
    "Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:
    *Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"
    Start Firefox in <u>[[Safe Mode|Safe Mode]]</u> to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).
    *Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.

  • Macbook upgraded from 10.5.8 to mountain lion. I lost the update when I tried to restore my old information. How can I get my update back without paying again?

    I took my mac to an iStore in South Africa however my country does not have an iStore. Macbook upgraded from 10.5.8 to mountain lion. I lost the update when I tried to restore my old information. How can I get my update back without paying again?

    Ok, that sounds like a valid approach...but now the question is, when you say you lost the upgrade when you tried to restore, exactly what do you mean?  Restore from a Time Machine backup, or another kind of backup?  What happened to the operating system when you did that?
    If it damaged the operating system, you should be able to recover it by restarting your computer holding either the Option key (should result in a grey screen that shows the macintosh hard drive and a recovery hard drive), or by holding the Command and R keys while starting.
    You can use the recovery hard drive to reinstall Mac OS X either way.  If the Option key restart, click on the recovery hard drive to boot from that.
    Then with either approach you will have a screen with a drop-down that gives you choices, such as install Mac OS X, Disk Utility, Terminal.  You will want to use Install (or Reinstall) Mac OS X...note, you must be connected to the internet from this point on.

  • How can we handle browser settings while dealing with the security ?

    Hi ,
    how can we handle browser settings while dealing with the security ?When we configured security in web.xml , during the first request the container is asking for the authentication credentials once they are provided it go's on. but when the user gives a fresh request from the second window within the same browser that time it is not asking for authentication. How can we overcome this.Is there anything to do with server configurations?
    How can we make the container no to keep the things or act like session?

    Ya... I am taking a small example need not happen always but a kind of possibility i am thinking off.
    once the user sign out and just left without closing the browser and a friend (suppose not a good friend ... just kidding...) of that user may open the same jsp or file .This time the security is breached. If that feature or property exists....
    I know what you might say ... the user will log-out before leaving where a programer might invalidate the session at the time of log out.
    Consider the case of a bad Programing or just a programer might forget to invalidate,At that time as a application administrator how can he solve that issue.
    Thanks.......

  • How can I get an updated safari browser?

    Hi.  I have a Macbook Pro, Mac OS X, version 10.6.8; I am getting error messages about updating my browser.  I checked the apple store to see if I could download a new version of Safari, but could not.  How can I get an updated safari browser at this time without downloading the new OS X Yosemite.  I know I might need to download the Yosemite, but would prefer to wait untill all the glitches are fixed.  I have learned that the Yosemite may cause wifi failure and e-mail connection problems.  Since I am not a computer expert, I don't need the headaches trying to figure out how what is wrong and how to fix a bug, so I would prefer to wait untill apple has totally fixed all the glitches that the Yosemite has. In the meanwhile, I just need to know how to go about updating a newer version of safari. I thing I have a 5.0
    I would be greatfull for your help or response.
    "New to this"
    <Subject Edited by Host>

    Safari 5.1.10 is the newest version for Snow Leopard, and all available Mac OS X upgrades other than Yosemite require a purchase. You may want to switch to another browser, such as Firefox, temporarily.

  • My charger is stuck in USB port of my car , how can I get it out without damaging either ?

    The charger that came with my iPhone 5c is now stuck in the USB port of my car. How can I get it out without damaging either?

    Use this article: If you can't update or restore your iOS device - Apple Support
    Best of luck!  And since you didn't back up your data previously, all your data is lost.  Make sure to use the free backup services of iCloud or iTunes.

  • HT1727 i bought some ringtones on my iPhone, later on i sync my iphone to my old computer now i have a new mac pro desktop and i only have 2 ringtones on my phone but not the rest of them how can i get them back without having to pay for them again?

    If you bought them on your iPad then you will need to connect your iPad to your computer's iTunes and do File > Devices > Transfer Purchases to copy them over to the Tones part of your computer's iTunes library and you can then sync them to your iPhone - ringtones are a one-time only download, so you won't be able to redownload them directly on your phone.

  • I have Elements 10 and a Nikon D7100. PSE10  CR 6.7 does not support the 7100 NEF. How can I get the updates to do this?

    I have Elements 10 and a Nikon D7100. PSE10  CR 6.7 does not support the 7100 NEF. How can I get the updates to do this?

    The D7100 requires camera raw 7.4 which is not compatible with Photoshop Elements 10.
    Your two main options are
    1) Buy a newer version of Photoshop Elements
    2) Use the Adobe DNG converter to convert the NEF files to DNG files which can then be used by Photoshop Elements 10.
    DNG  Converter 8.8

    Where is the backup of the media and other important files from the computer?  Ultimately, it is the users responsibility to ensure that backups exists. Waiting until there is a problem to decide to do a backup is not smart.  Would you wait until a fire started in your home to call the insurance company and inquire about homeowners/renters insurance????
    In the event that no backup exists (stop being lazy.... keep backups of YOUR data and other important files):
    If you are in the US and running iTunes 10.3 or later, it is possible to redownload music via iCloud from purchased history.
    If you are not in the US or for some reason cannot run iTunes 10.3 or later, contact iTunes customer support and ask very nicely for the opportunity to redownload the content.  They are not required to provide this opportunity.
    It is also possible to transfer content from an iDevice that was purchased via iTunes.  On the new computer, sign into the iTunes account, authorize the computer, connect the device then select File > Transfer Purchases.
    The simplest method of all is to transfer or copy the media (and other important files) from the old computer or the backup of the old computer.  Typing "move itunes library" into the search bar here or into google will reveal step by step instructions on how to do this.

    Delete the problem song(s) from library including file(s). Then go to the iTunes Store and select "Purchased" from the Quick Links side bar on the right. Select Music tab to re-download again for free.
