Accessibility updates make it even more important that you use current and supported browsers

As part of our work to make our site more user-friendly for all users we'll be utilizing more current features available in modern browsers. 

This means to efficiently use our site you will want to make sure you are using a supported browser and using the most up-to-date version of it. 

In general, we strive to support anything released in the last two years and that continues to be supported by its publisher. This means the following browsers are supported by Doxpop:

*Note: Microsoft Internet Explorer has not been supported by Microsoft since June 15, 2022. Security and other updates for this are no longer provided by Microsoft and we strongly suggest switching to a supported browser. 

Version levels are somewhat fluid as time passes but largely we support these version levels and higher:
  • Microsoft Edge- 103+
  • Google Chrome- 103+
  • Mozilla FireFox- 102+
  • Apple's Safari- 15.5+
If you are unsure of your browser version we suggest you go ahead and update to the latest version. To help you out here are some instructions on updating each browser:

  1. Launch the Edge browser and select the Options icon (three dots) menu from the top-right corner.
  2. From there, click on Help and Feedback > About Microsoft Edge.
  3. If a new Edge update is available, the downloaded will begin automatically.
  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click the Options icon More.
  3. Click Help and then About Google Chrome.
  4. Click Update Google Chrome.
  5. Important: If you can't find this button, you're on the latest version.
  6. Click Relaunch.
  1. Click the menu button Fx89menuButton at the right side of the Firefox toolbar, go to "Help", and select "About Firefox". The About Mozilla Firefox window will open.
  2. Firefox will check for updates automatically. If an update is available, it will be downloaded.
  3. When the download is complete click "Restart to update FireFox"
  1. From the Apple menu (Apple Icon) in the upper left corner of your screen, choose System Preferences.
  2. In the System Preferences window, click Software Update.
    1. If your System Preferences doesn't include Software Update, use the App Store to get updates instead.
