Whenever I comment on anything, a red box will appear at the top of the page and say"Whoops, something went wrong." Yet when I reload the page, the comment that was stated didn't post actually did post!
Can someone inform me why is that?
@xxxddd: are you running on an limited XP user account or full admin?
if you are the main account you can manually install the new Firefox over the old, make sure you backup your old FF profile and bookmarks first and then download the new version and install, there should be a screen about an existing profile existing and a prompt to replace or not so you would choose not to overwrite.
@xxxddd: to backup go into your bookmarks and export to html or json then close Firefox and hit the windows key + R, enter the following without quotes "%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\" and hit enter, you should see a folder with an 8 digit number name with .default afterwards, that folder to anywhere else on your computer, that folder holds all your info: history, bookmarks, profile, everything, once done run the installer and update. If after updating your profile is gone let me know and I'll tell you how to restore your profile.
@pikahyper: My computer won't let me back it up, just like it won't let me download any new program.
On a side note, because my computer won't allow me to download any new programs, I have been using an OS that has no anti-virus or malware detection program for months now.
@xxxddd: I don't think the computer was wiped when you got it from the school, sounds to me like they just removed any data on it and left the user account and locked down environment intact, if you can't install anything you are pretty much screwed, if any of your friends know about computers have them look at it, if it is just that you are on a limited account they might be able to elevate you otherwise they should probably format the whole thing and install something new.
Use your keyboard!
