It's the latest version of Firefox !

I think it's more to do with using Windows XP service pack2. Adobe flash player has failed to update for the last 6 months even though I get the reminders and click the update button.

I tried a Windows 7 system recently but fell out with it for numerous reasons. I cannot work with a system that bosses me around like that. One example was that I tried to save a downloaded mp3 file into a folder I'd just created on the C drive and then it told me I didn't have permission to save it there WTF !?

I'm on ubuntu 16.04 myself, ditched windows years ago, its a lighter system that works better on older machines, this laptop would have been binned ages ago otherwise.

That said it does have some issues, but it's free & doesn't need anti crap ware & so on, you don't need to be a programmer to use it either.

On linux ( ubuntu etc ). I recently read about a security hole in the kernel. Something to do with the privilege levels being easily hackable.

I hate windows almost as much as you do but the older versions at least did what they said on the tin. They were operating systems, not door bouncers.

As I've said before, my problem is being stuck with the applications I need.

Finally got to the bottom of the thanks button mystery, the company that hosts the program for it no longer exists.

No luck finding a replacement via the forum forum (if that makes any sense lol) which is bizarre because that does have a thanks button Facepalm

A lot of sites have parts of their code hosted elsewhere, I was aware of things like shopping carts & contact forms but that little button was a surprise tbh, it was only when I went back & re-read the code that I saw it, I had assumed that the code was all of it Piicard facepalm

The domain that hosted it is up for sale !
