Use Firefox? Quantum upgrade offers twice the speed but doesn't support older extensions

The Firefox web browser has been upgraded and released as Firefox Quantum. If you're a member of staff using Firefox on a managed machine you'll automatically be upgraded. If you use Firefox on a personal device, you'll need to update if you want to use the latest version.

The new Quantum release offers twice the speed of the previous version of Firefox, but you may find some applications that use older extensions no longer work. Most of the top 100 extensions are supported, but if you do experience any issues, you could try Edge (Windows 10), Chrome or Internet Explorer as an alternative browser.

Find out more on Mozilla's Firefox support pages.

Start.Warwick is to be discontinued on 2 October 2017

Start.Warwick <> is to be discontinued on 2 October 2017. This is primarily because the new My Warwick mobile application replaces Start and will be launched in early September 2017. This change will enable us to remove legacy unsupported software.

Users visiting Start.Warwick after it's been withdrawn will see a web page which contains a description of the My Warwick app and useful links for example Student Records Online.

The new My Warwick mobile app for students is a system to bring together in one place information from many University systems. For those who would like to know more, screenshots and more information on the My Warwick app are available on the support pages.
