• Mozilla Firefox version 3.5 or 3.6 is a popular web browser that Library & Technology Services recommends for both the Mac and Windows operating systems.
  • If you are using a previous version of Firefox,  please upgrade to 3.5 or 3.6  to keep up to date with security patches. At this time later versions have not been tested and are not supported for use with Wellesley's systems.
  • If you have accidentally upgraded to a later version and are finding that you are unable to use Wellesley systems, follow the instructions below to remove Firefox and then install Firefox 3.
  • A few members of the College community may have to use version 3.5 instead of 3.6 due to rare compatibility issues with specific administrative software. If you have not been told to use version 3.5, please make sure you are using 3.6.
  • To determine what version of Firefox you have  installed, please launch Firefox and go to Help > About Mozilla Firefox.
