Use an older version of Firefox, they are quite fast on older hardware. Add NoScript for more security and web content management.


True, another (more drastic) way is to turn off Javascript in the "Options" menu. That turns Firefox (or Seamonkey) into a lightweight browser like Dillo or Netsurf (but with the same restrictions in the content you can access). It's worth doing though if you want to dramatically reduce the amount of system resources you use; it's what I do in Windows.

I noticed Tarni's reply only recently...

I appreciate the help, but where on earth does one find these mythic "older browsers"? They are mentioned with some frequency in this forum, but their sources are not mentioned.

Any details on this point would be be very welcome.

Thanks...

Swiftfox is enough for me for my old Lucid 528 (pendrive old stuff for old laptop 20004) excepted that this browser cannot be updated, so i cannot use it for video.
Other Firefox can be uploaded to newest versions (most of them)
Firefox 5.0.1 jumps first to version 17, then to 42, 43 ... 50 in the second step

The newest Firefox, ver 52.0 and above, is a real pain to use on this forum though, because it complains about lack of security at login and covers the password box as you try and type in it.

Semme has told me that I am being unfair to Firefox... I should therefore mention that I did give a disable security message link a few days ago in other thread:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=949009#949009

and now Semme has sent me another link that has same purpose:

https://websetnet.com/disable-insecure-login-prompt-firefox/

Despite that, kind of a fix, the security warning situation remains a nuisance to me still.

ah is there a bemol with Firefox latest version ? When you ask your old version to be updated, you cannot choose to which one, it will be the latest, the ones which mcewanw complains about
What i can say is that Nilson Morales releases his pupjibaros in two versions, one being delivered with Fdirefox Version 17 ESR for people Owners of really old computers (10 years old)

You can disable the warning as described here.
https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Firefox/New-this-connection-is-not-secure-in-my-textbox/td-p/1372812

Set the pref security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to false.

Uh, because if I want to respond to your issue, I should quote you so others know what I'm referring to. I was just trying to be helpful.

Are we not supposed to quote here or something? Maybe I'm missing something ...lol

I guess I just don't understand what I did wrong. You even quoted Pelo earlier for something. Why was it wrong to quote you? Just confused, so I thought I'd ask.

Have a good night.
