Hi,
Sometime during the last year I downloaded one of the firefox upgrades and lost access to some add-ons. I was able to revert back to 3.6 but it will soon not be supported.

I'm pretty green when it comes to computers. When I open help tab on firefox it says version 3.628 but at the bottom of message, it reads: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.28) Gecko/20120306 Firefox/3.6.28 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

I'm hoping a seasoned computer person will offer some advice about whether to upgrade to version 11 or if there is an older version that is still available that might be better. I always hear about new versions having bugs that need to be tweaked.

Thanks in advance! cj

Hello,

My moto is if it isn't broke don't fix it, but on the other side of that coin I also say that if a web browser has an update, update to it.. Many people fail to realize how vulnerable you are if you don't have the latest version of a web browser, that being said in my opinion just update to the latest. All of your plugins should have updates so they will work with the latest Firefox. :)

For more opinions on the recent changes of Mozilla's update system, and loss of support for older versions of Firefox take a look at these topics.

Mozilla readies to pull support plug on Firefox 3.6

Mozilla will start Firefox silent updates in June
