Or you can just download and install the current version of Pale Moon browser 3.6.
Which is the same as Firefox 3.6. And there is also a Pale Moon 12 which is the same as Firefox 12. Both versions are up to date.
A lot of people do see Windows XP as an upgrade. And a lot of homes and offices in England,anyway, are still using Windows XP now.
Windows XP is faster than Windows 7.And you would think it was only made 2 months ago and not 10 years ago. Andrea Borman.
Pale Moon 3.6 is legacy software, they even say so on their website. The difference between Firefox 3.x and 14 for example is actually quite small once you get used to it.
And Windows XP is definitely NOT faster than Windows 7 and nobody would think it was made 10 years ago. On any recent computer with enough RAM Windows 7 is far, far faster than Windows XP ever was/will be. Of course if you buy outdated slow netbooks then Windows XP might run a bit faster. But the problem there isn't Windows, it's your netbook.
Andrea, I think you need to learn what legacy software actually is. Legacy software (like Firefox/Pale Moon 3.x or Windows Live Essentials 2009) is software that is no longer maintained. It's software that has problems but doesn't get fixed. Legacy software is oftenly made available to download just as a last option for systems that cannot be upgraded. Windows XP by now is pretty much a legacy OS too. It receives security updates, but it has stopped receiving any functionality updates or improvements years ago now.
As I've said before in my other post in another one of your topics, almost all of the problems you experience are caused by yourself. If Skype won't work it's probably because you are using an old, incompatible version of your webcam driver. Or you have a conflict with another installed application. But I can assure you the problem is not Skype.
I give up. As long as you are not willing to accept what other people are saying to you, you will keep experiencing the same problems over and over. I don't know if you realize it, but we are trying to help you
. The majority of us here knows far more about computers than you do, and some of us (like me) either have or are studying for a degree in Software Development or related topics. We are not your enemy, let us help you. Listen to what we have to say, try things out. When something like Skype doesn't work just try it again, and again, and again until it works.
