Unable to install 52.9.0esr on Vista

Posted

I am running Vista 64 bit and am trying to install the 52.9.0esr 64 bit version and get the error. "Sorry Firefox can't be installed. This version requires MS Windows 7 x64 or newer. ...." I understand this to be the last version that will run on Vista and indeed have the 32-bit version of the same revision installed. I did try to install 67.0.4 first which also gave this error. I am wondering if there is something that this left behind that is inhibiting installing 52.09esr now.

And yes I know Vista is ancient and yes I know 52.09esr is not being patche, but I still want to install it..

the system requirements page among others is specifying that 64bit versions will not run on anything below windows 7: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.0/system-requirements/

Right, you can only install Firefox 52.9.0esr 32bit on Vista 64bit. This is the last version. Firefox 64bit have never supported Vista.

Ty, While I tend to believe your response, there is nothing that I can find that actually states the 64 bit version is not supported on Vista. This seems to be the go to note, but does not include the bit version, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-windows-xp-and-vista

Mod, please reread my post

I do not care about support. It still runs though the 32bit version runs out of steam. I was hoping the 64 bit would run better.
