We don't support old versions of Firefox. What do you need these old versions for?

The new firefoxes since version 46 are a plain piece of garbage

No support for discontinued addons, bloated and misorganized menus

Here's a proof that older versions are available:

https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ But the developer versions don't seem to be here


Serious (and I'm far from alone on this): firefox is doomed

No Firefox is not doomed as a small minority have said that every so often for the past fifteen years and yet to happen.

Developers Edition refers to a channel and not to a version or codename. Why do you want to use such a random build that will be a old vulnerable version at that especially if before Fx 46.0.

Release < Beta (b#) < Nightly (a1) as it used to be Release < Beta (b#) < Aurora (a2) < Nightly (a1)

The Developers Edition aka Aurora is now same version as Beta but with the dev features.

Still ongoing chrome migration says otherwise Fifteen years ago we had only internet explorer. Will mozilla continue playing with fire ?

Why do you want to use such a random build that will be a old vulnerable version at that especially if before Fx 46.0.

The reasons are all over google, the main being: unilateral block by mozilla of unsigned addons, since such version. Developer doesn't have this stupid restriction Me and half of the world don't share this security paranoia everyone here does.

Actually, we don't give a rat's ass.

It's much much much much more time consuming to fix the drastic unilateral choices mozilla makes than manually getting rid of homepage changer "viruses"

As a peer said on this same forum: We don't have time to be our own tech. We migrate.

The Developers Edition aka Aurora

A codename...

Which I could not find on the provided link. Can anyone be more specific ?

Since when aurora and beta got "merged" ? Maybe that information makes easier to find

You realize add-on signing is super easy and if you have an add-on that won't run because it's unsigned you can just sign it yourself? You don't need to use a version two years old and has tons of known security issues.

And add-on signing was critical because millions of users don't know how to revert the hijacking we worked to prevent.

Fifteen years ago we had only internet explorer.

IE was just one of a number of web browsers that existed then. The browser we know as Firefox started as Phoenix 0.1 in Sept 2002. Due to Phoenix Bios existing Mozilla changed name to Firebird for 0.6 to 0.7. Then due to the open source Firebird SQL already being around for a bit Mozilla decided to not have confusion between the two and changed it to Firefox starting at Release version 0.8 to present. Firefox did not start at version 1.0 in November 2004 as so many mistakenly think.

There were other browsers like Netscape and the Mozilla suite (started in 1998) which has been continued as SeaMonkey ever since Mozilla dropped it at version 1.7.13 in April 2006. There also was Camino which started February 13, 2002 and ended March 14, 2012. Safari was January 2003. And Opera has been in various development status since as early as April 1995.

Nope, not a codename but a development Channel. Mozilla has not used codenames since the versions before Firefox 4.0

The Developer channel changed during Firefox 54 I think.

Also older versions do not have the security fixes that have been put in since, many of which are critical. https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/

Good to know. Very useful in case of emergencies But I'd practically have to sign ALL of them. Got more to do with my life

And if I want to use the Sync ? Bye bye addons

Also: older versions of the browser have other advantages

I think I made an irrelevant question

Doesn't matter afterall when those changes happen, since I want a version before it

All I need is the list

Please stop trying to push me a version I don't want (not you you: all of you)

If you guys want to help me: pass me the link of the list

Or just say "this list does not exist" (which I find hard to believe, since there is a huge list since firefox 0.00b - the link was posted by me and some of you too)

Here's a picture of what I have installed

It says here Firefox Developer Edition 58.0b5


All I want is a list of the older versions of THIS SAME DIVISION, whatever it's name is

Example: 56.0b2 or 52.2b0... A list, similar to the main firefox line is preferred

Why do you need an older version? Old versions are not supported anymore and you should use the latest

You probably wrote this before I wrote

For that reason, I'm answering with simplicity and honesty:

The feel of it

If it's not a motive enough for you guys: then don't help (which translates into "stop asking irrelevant questions and giving half relevant information, cause that's how the topic is going since the beginning")

The reason is irrelevant, but as I wrote on the beginning, and I won't go on more detail:

The new firefoxes since version 46 are a plain piece of garbage No support for discontinued addons, bloated and misorganized menus

And I add now: distasteful interface

Older EOL versions do not have the security fixes the recent versions have so hopefully you are not planning to use a random old developer edition build for all your browsing. https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/
