No further security updates for Windows Vista will be provided after August 2018 - does it end August 1 or August 31?

Announcement that no further security updates for Windows Vista will be provided by Firefox after August 2018. Do those updates end on August 1, 2018 or August 31, 2018?

I believe that the current plan is to make one final update to the Firefox ESR 52 near the end of August and then that's it. It's not necessarily at the start or end of August.

However, the next Firefox major Firefox update is scheduled for September 5, 2018 for Firefox 62. Usually, the Firefox ESR version is updated at the same time as the regular release. Firefox 61 was just released on June 26, so hypothetically the Firefox 52 ESR has already received its last update.

I believe that the only plan to update Firefox ESR in July or August is if there is a security fix that is required.
