I don't care if it's not supported anymore. Where can i download it?

It's not even called 'Aurora' anymore ......

Developer Edition (previously known as 'Aurora') is the channel based on the nightly builds from mozilla-central - as such its status is roughly "experimental".

Release < Beta (b#) < Nightly (a1)

A version on the Beta channel gets say nine to sixteen builds. There is also the Developers Edition (Aurora) that is same as Beta but with addition Developer features and such.

What it used to be with the development channels is Release < Beta (b#) < Aurora (a2) < Nightly (a1)

If you want the use the Dev Ed and not Beta then see https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/channel/desktop/ or at https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/devedition/releases/ where you can see the versions have b# like the Beta builds.

The Developers Edition (Aurora) was never based on the separate Nightly development channel.

Note that the Developer Edition update channel is still named 'aurora'. Only DE is no longer a separate branch between Nightly and Beta, but is mostly the same as Beta with some extra developer features and you can install unsigned extensions like in Nightly (xpinstall.signatures.required).

Nope as the Download link just leads to https://www.mozilla.org/ and if you clicked on the What's new in the Developer Edition? it leads to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/35

The article pages there is a bit outdated as it was from the time when the channels were as Release < Beta (b#) < Aurora (a2) < Nightly (a1)

The last Aurora channel build was firefox-54.0a2 back on May 11, 2017. https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2017/05/2017-05-11-07-47-36-mozilla-aurora/

James gave you that link in the last post. You can see in this listing that 'aurora' no longer appears after that date.


What will happen to the Aurora population on Desktop?

The Aurora population will be migrated to the Beta update channel in April 2017. We plan to keep them on a separate “pre-beta” update channel as compared to the rest of the Beta population. We will use this pre-beta audience to test and improve the stability and quality of initial Beta builds until we are ready to push to 100% of beta population. Because we presented Aurora as a stable product in the past, the beta channel is the closest in terms of stability and quality.

From the next merge (April 18th), users running 54 Aurora will remain on the Aurora channel but updates will be turned off. In case of critical security issues, we might push new updates to these aurora channel users. Aurora channel users will be migrated to Beta channel in April ‘17. For this to happen, we need to make sure that the Developer Edition features are working the same way on the Beta update channel (theme, profile, etc).

Actually for Windows it ended a couple days earlier in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2017/05/2017-05-09-00-40-16-mozilla-aurora/

No guarantee this last Windows build will be stable and without issues though.

Not sure why you want to use a old random build over current build on Developers Edition channel.

We know what you are asking for however you may not have understood what happened and what it is now as Developers Edition is basically Aurora.
