I hope this is the right Community to post this question.
I was notified by a frequent flyer that I would not be getting a fairly large amount of miles because I used Safari, a browser that they say is owned by Google, and therefore since Google has it's own Point system, it is incompatible with distributing the Miles I earned. I tried to get in contact with somebody at the airline to get a more detailed answer as to why I will not be receiving the Miles I earned, but no success. They said I need to use a different browser and they mentioned IE or Firefox.
OK, so I will use Firefox for dealing with this airlines' miles award distribution.
My main question is (I have only used Safari), is there a better place as far as security and staying away from a website that might make downloading Firefox more than the download and install that it should be? For example, ease os the install, installing the latest version of Firefox, etc. When my sister downloaded Chrome recently she found out that her personal info. and other privacy issues had majorly be violated. I would like to try and avoid any problems like this by using a reputable website and download the latest version.
Does downloading another browser on a MacBook Pro that is 3 years old cause any areas of concern that I should be aware of? is there anything different having 2 browsers installed on the MBP that a novice should know about? is there a website that one could recommend that I use if Apple does not have a place to get the latest version of this browser?
I appreciate any special considerations I should be aware of, and maybe there is none, but I do not want to be dealing with the issues my sister is apparantly dealing with from using a website to download Chrome that seems to have violated her personal information and other informat about her system.
If you have a recommendation for a well-known website to get this browswer and if you know what the latest version is for the Mac, I wold appreciate that info.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
