Note edit

While we, the maintainers of this book, strive to future-proof our texts, things can change, and in the software industry, change happens often and quickly before writers have a chance to catch up. For example, this book was written when Firefox was still on Windows XP, an operating system Firefox no longer supports (along with Vista and all operating systems haven't received Firefox updates since August 2018). If you're still on Windows XP or Vista, Mozilla recommends that you upgrade to Windows 7, 8, 10 or 11. Alternatively, you can switch to a Linux distribution.

Edit: On January 14th, 2020, Microsoft Stopped Windows 7 Updates. On January 10th, 2023, Microsoft Stopped Windows 8.1 Updates. It Is HIGHLY Recommended To Upgrade To Windows 10 Or 11 Or Switch To A Linux Distro. This Will Let You Keep Getting Updates From Mozilla For Firefox.
