Mozilla extends, and ends, Firefox support for Windows XP and Vista

05 October 2017

Instead, XP and Vista users were moved to the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR). This meant basically that Firefox 52.x was the last stable channel version of Firefox for those operating systems, and that XP and Vista users could not run Firefox 53 on their devices. Firefox ESR is designed for schools, universities, businesses, and others who need help with mass deployments.

Past year we announced that Windows XP and Vista users would be automatically moved to the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR), ensuring them continued updates until at least September, 2017.

While an exact date has not been announced, Mozilla says that June next year is when Firefox support will come to an end.

Mozilla had said past year that the company will continue offering Windows XP and Vista users security updates until at least September, 2017. "Unsupported operating systems receive no security updates, have known exploits, and are unsafe for you to use". The browser gets security updates however when new Firefox versions get released. Many XP and Vista users thus choose to use third-party browsers. Google dropped support for both operating systems back in 2016 for instance, and so did Opera Software and Vivaldi Technologies.
