I agree, and if you can't afford one of the latest, try x business or x lease.

I am doing work for my uncle who has a 6th generation x lease system and while it has a few small niggles like it likes to startup by itself at 6 in the morning its ok.

Its probably a bios thing that it was made to startup at 6am for some reason.

most websites that i use, they are not firefox version dependent.
and i could use them even with firefox 3.5!
but i had a problem in using legacy text or web pages in persian that
firefox did not recognize encoding.
and one of my friends told me that she can opens such files with
firefox quantum properly.
i believe that this feature is the most important changes in firefox
quantum that i really need!
also, unfortunately, now, i only have windows xp,
and i forced to uninstall seven
because of more and more overheating my laptop,
and slowness when navigating using nvda even in computer and documents!

First, you can't use Firefox 51 forever. Old browsers gradually work with
fewer and fewer sites.  Try the latest version of Firefox and see if it
crashes or not on your Windows 7 system.  You can try the portable version
since that alters nothing on your system. You can continue to use your
beloved years out of date dangerous version if you wish and evaluate the
current portable version.  Many people are using Firefox, the latest one,
and I've seen no pattern of complaints.  While I don't use firefox much, I
haven't had problems with more recent versions.

hello every one.
as you know,
i use windows xp and firefox 52 with nvda versions 2017.2 and 2017.3.
my only browser is firefox and i really cant tolerate other browsers.
i had issue of firefox crashes in firefox old versions with nvda.
but did not observe firefox crashes at least in firefox 45!
once, i could access windows seven and i tested firefox 61
the crashes returned frequently.
so, i observed firefox crashes in 30 minute of using firefox!
even in simple web pages like nvda user guide,
and my gmail interface which is in basic html view,
i had frequent crashes and firefox 61 was completely unusable for me!
when testing with windows seven, i only used and tested firefox 61
with nvda 2017.2.
and i did not have nvda 2017.3 on that time.
i know one person who has a laptop from 2009 and for this reason, He
migrated to chrome!
i really wish some experts,
and who use only firefox and compare versions,
especially users of old laptops,
help me that
1. is frequent crashing of firefox quantum with nvda is resolved or not?
if the issue is resolved,
and mozilla released a stable version of firefox without crashes like
firefox 56 and before,
please give me exact version number.
for example: tell me that firefox since version xxx became completely
stable as it was before firefox quantum.
i searched in the internet and found only this link.
can someone please help?
can i use one day firefox quantum with nvda 2017.3 without any issues?
or, i should use firefox 52 forever?
thanks so much every one and God bless you all!

I may disobey God

from the husk of a grain of barley,
I would not do it.
