Which browser?  Google Chrome is no longer supported for Vista.  Firefox?  You'll need to check if this is still supported, but I know since this is currently installed on mine, that Firefox is still supported for Vista.  You can try Slimjet, version 11 (from the archive) if you want something like google Chrome.

Hi:

 

Yes, if you tell which browser you want to update, we can better assist you.

 

AFAIK, Firefox will support Vista until version 53 (current Firefox version is 49.x).

Chrome no longer supports Vista.

IE can only be updated to IE9 under Vista, which is a vulnerable and outdated version.  The current (and probably last) version of IE is IE11.

 

Perhaps you are reporting that fact that some websites you visit are generating error messages because you have IE9 (or another outdated browser)???

 

If so, then there's probably not much you can do.

These sorts of things will become more common with time, as hardware/software vendors and web sites drop support.

Mainstream support for Vista ended in 2012 and even extended support will end in early 2017.

So, at some point, you'll need to consider upgrading to a new computer (or at least a supported version of Windows).
