Re: Obtaining Accessible Firefox


I wish that web this some work with Google Chrome. I like the Google Chrome browser much better because it’s so much faster than Firefox and Internet Explorer.

There is a Mozilla page, perhaps more than one, where you can get old
Here is a page for Firefox 56. I don't know what -eme free means. The
Windows versions come in pairs, one says -eme free and the other just says
the version. They are both links. There are 32 and 64 bit versions.

Here is a Mozilla site giving information about the ESR version. A download
link is on the page. Above the link there is a question that is worded
something like :Where can I download the ESR version?" I haven't specified
a direct download link because There are different English versions such as
a Brittish english and an American English one.

How and where can I get this ESR version? I am having multiple issues with
57. I was loving 56 and planning to make it my default browser. I had the
setting to notify me of update but not to install unless I chose that
option. However It went right ahead and updated and what a headache.
probably part my own fault since I am still a novice FF user.

Version 56 is the last of the old versions. But saying it's the last
accessible version, thus implying that version 57 isn't is a real
oversimplification and is misleading. Some people have had serious problems
with version 57 and some haven't. Mozilla has said that they are working on
making future versions of Firefox work without the problems in version 57.
Also, people shouldn't be looking for the last accessible version. they
should be running the ESR (extended release version) during this time that
Firefox is having problems in the current version or versions.

Hi, where can I find an accessible portable version of Firefox? I’m
assuming with such a portable version, I can import a profile that
could include my old Webvisum and other add-ons? Thank you kindly in
