    I just found out that my FoxFire browser was not yet supported in my new Win8 OS. Not a big item as I hardly use it but it was a shock finding it was unsupported.

    Perhaps you should use Firefox instead of Foxfire :D

    I tried installing it on my computer this morning and got the message it was not supported on my OS.

    I just gave it another try and it did install, it's really not my favored browser I really use and like Google Chrome much better but I wanted to see if I could install Fire Fox as I did have a few programs I used it for. Lots of things they want to push on users I really don't care for. It took a little declining to get it the way I wanted it. Not sure I will keep it. But yes it did install.

    When I did my original google search this morning I saw this new "New Mozilla Fire Fox 16 and opened on it and found it was not supported, I now see right below it the correct download for the Mozilla Fox Fire. I just was to quick to notice my misstep of what I should have downloaded.

    You understand a person has a brand new OS, he has to reinstall all their programs. They get in a hurry and are not really careful. and they get things wrong. I thought at first this is funny many use this program, and it's not supported. I am glad I have four other computers with the old Win7 on them, as some of my older programs that are on my Win7 machines, just won't install on the Win8 computer. And I really don't wish to buy a new copy of something I just bought a year ago.:mad:
