I have been a supporter of Firefox for over 10 years in the schools that I work in. Now you no longer support Mac OSX 10.5? Please create an update for this OS

Please create an update to firefox for MAC OS X 10.5.8...I have so many labs that still use this OS and with budget cuts they are not planning to update for the next few years. It cannot be that difficult.

You can use TenFourFox, which is a third-party build of Firefox that works on Mac OS X 10.4 or 10.5.

Mozilla already ended support for Leopard a month ago. The developers believe that the resources spent supporting the older operating system would be better used elsewhere. Realistically, one or more enthusiasts asking not to end support isn't going to change the fact the user base isn't large enough to make that kind of effort worthwhile.

  • I wanted the music on my Ipod Touch 3g to be on my new ipod Touch 4g and Ive been trying to do it, by trying to copy and paste but thats not working so if you have another way can you please tell me. Thanks.

    I was wondering how do you get the music on your old ipod to the new ipod?
    Because i have the Ipod Touch 3G and im getting the Ipod4G, and i was trying to get the music to go to the libary but it wouldnt transfer.Because i didnt purchase all my music i download some from other places so not all my music transferred. So i need a different way to get my music to my new Ipod. i was wondering if you just plug it in to the computer and if it would ask you to download the songs from the previous ipod im not sure so please help me out. Thanks!

    All you have to do is connect your new iPod to the computer that has the library for your old iPod.
    When iTunes comes up, click on your new iPod under Devices.
    At the top of the Summary Page click Music.
    Click Synch Music.
    Do the same thing for Photos, Apps, Movies and so on...
    Now just synch the iPod.

  • I have been trying to download firefox for few days now and it keeps telling me the file is corrupt. what can i do to solve this?

    every time i try to download firfox as a browser it tells me the file is corrupt.

    It is possible that your anti-virus software is corrupting the downloaded files or otherwise interfering with downloading files by Firefox.
    Try to disable the real-time (live) scanning of files in your anti-virus software temporarily to see if that makes downloading work.
    See "Disable virus scanning in Firefox preferences - Windows"

  • I have been a user of Firefox for a long time but it seems to have gotten really slow. IE will open web sites much faster than firefox on all 3 of my computers. Is there something wrong, boged down or do I need to reinstall it?

    It seems that it is taking twice as long for firefox to open the same websites as ie. I run updates but seems to just be taking a long time for it to open sites and I can open with IE in much less time?
    == URL of affected sites ==
    http://

    These issues are usually a result of many extensions. Try [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]]

  • I have been trying to install firefox but when l get to the setup type, firefox tells me to close firefox to proceed with installation, when l do it ask me if l want to cancel, l want firefox but l can't get it. tell me what to do next.

    I am trying to install firefox and l can't get pass setup type on the type of setup whih is standard and then it tells me to close firefox so it can proceed with installation, when l do, it ask me do l want to cancel installation, if l say no then it tells me again to close firefox.

    I want to make sure you're using the auto-update system, because that's the safest most reliable way to go, and it shouldn't appear in the download manager, so I lets make sure you're doing it right. <br/>
    This is a screencast I made a couple of years ago. It refers to 3.5 and 3.6, but the steps are still the same: http://ilias.ca/screencasts/ISUHD45.mov
    If that doesn't work, then maybe your Snow Leopard account doesn't have permission to update applications?

  • Hi I have got 2 PDF documents that I am trying to print.  They lose resolution and have been advised to change them to CMYK to make sure the resolution isn't lost. Could you advise??

    Could anyone help me?

    The advice - as you quote it - seems to be nonsense. Resolution is not affected by CMYK or RGB. And if you don't understand about colour spaces and which colour profiles to use for CMYK and RGB you will certainly make things worse and mess up the colour.
    Let's go back to the original problem. You say "lose resolution". What effect are you seeing? Please be as exact as possible.
    Also, how are you making the PDF?

    You can use the Tab key to select a search engine on the bottom bar and press Enter to use the search engine to do the search.
    *https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Search+bar
    In the current Firefox 34 release there is a new "one-off" search bar.
    This search bar doesn't show the name of the search engine and a logo.
    You can type one letter to make a drop-down list appear where you can see suggestions and see the used search engine and that also has bar at the bottom where you can select other search engines that are enabled via the Search tab in Options/Preferences.
    You can use the Tab key to select one of the other available search engines and press the Enter key to search with the selected search engine.
    Click the search engine icon and click "Change Search Settings" to open the Search tab in Options/Preferences (positioned between Tabs and Content) to select the default search engine and select which search engines to show in the search bar drop-down list that opens when you start typing search terms.

    This should get your itunes store connection working.
    Close your iTunes,
    Go to command Prompt -
    (Win 7/Vista) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES, right mouse click "Command Prompt", choose "Run as Administrator".
    (Win XP SP2 & above) - START/ALL PROGRAMS/ACCESSORIES/Command Prompt
    In the "Command Prompt" screen, type in
    netsh winsock reset
    Hit "ENTER" key
    Restart your computer.
    If you do get a prompt after restart windows to remap LSP, just click NO.
    Now launch your iTunes and see if it is working now.
    If you are still having these type of problems after trying the winsock reset, refer to this article to identify which software in your system is inserting LSP:

  • I purchased Adobe Acrobat Professional and have been trying to activate it for some time.  I also had this same program on my previous computer.  How do I de-activate it from that computer so that I can activate it on my new computer?

    I purchased Adobe Acrobat Professional and have been trying to activate it for some time.  I also had this same program on my previous computer.  How do I de-activate it from that computer so that I can activate it on my new computer?

    Hi larrygoynes,
    To transfer the license from one pc to another the step you have to follow is to 'Deactivate' the license first from the older machine.
    To accomplish this you need to Launch Acrobat, go to the 'Help' menu and select 'Deactivate'
    On the new machine you can install Acrobat and then use the serial number to 'Activate' the software and this will complete the license transfer.
    You can refer the KB Doc: Activation & Deactivation Help

  • Have been having issues with firefox crashing & v e r r y s l o w also sluggish, I removed by the programs & features than redownloaded it, I can not use it.

    Had to remove it for the last & final time. I love & miss my Firefox, but can't take the chance of someone getting into my system. The upgrade had yahoo toolbar which is always easy to get rid of (thank God) but I have this yellow sign in my popup that says something about the system not being safe, & we can not go to any web sites. Why is it everything that is upgraded always turns out to be BULL. I can not use Firefox for anything, so once again had to remove it using the programs & features update/remove.

    The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.
    '''''Note:''' After resetting Firefox, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences.'' See the [[Reset Firefox – easily fix most problems]] article for more information.

    # Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    #*Click the menu button [[Image:New Fx Menu]], click help [[Image:Help-29]] and select ''Troubleshooting Information''. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    #*If you're unable to access the Help menu, type '''about:support''' in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
    #At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Reset Firefox" that looks like this: [[Image:Button reset]]. Click on it.
