Firefox Removal

firefox logoIn June 2017, new versions of Mozilla Firefox will no longer support Java, and old versions that do support Java will not receive security updates. As a result, Firefox will be removed from all SHSU workstations on Friday, June 23 and the University will only support Internet Explorer (IE), Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (when Windows 10 is deployed), and Safari (on Mac OS) as the default browsers.

Chrome is already available on the installation menu for download to campus workstations.

Mozilla Firefox users, on both PCs and Macs, should export their bookmarks and/or favorites from Firefox and import them into IE, Chrome, or Edge. See this month's Tech Tip and/or the Technology Tutorial for more information.

WebCMS Editors: You should use Chrome instead of Firefox when working on your websites.
