What is the latest version of Firefox ESR that will support Java Plugin? What date will it be scheduled to run until?

Posted

I need to use a Java plugin to allow my banking system to run so I need to pre-empt the removal of plugins from Version 52 when it goes from Beta to release?

Does anyone know what date the ESR which allows plugins like Java will be available until?

Alternatively, I know IE has no plans to remove plugins but are there any alternative channels that I could pursue ?

A version on ESR channel tends to get eight major updates so 52.8.0 ESR may be the last.

However this time there will be at least two reasons for regular Firefox users to use 52.0 ESR. For to use Plugins and for Windows XP/Vista users to still get security updates as Firefox 53.0 and later will require Windows 7 or later then.

Firefox 45 ESR is currently at 45.6.0 esr because 45.6.0esr came out when Firefox 50.1.0 was Released as otherwise 45.6.0esr would have instead came out when 51.0 was Released.

Firefox 52.6.0esr will be out when 58.0 is released on Jan 22, 2018.
