How to get Firefox ESR release alerts ? Is there any way where we can get mail from Mozilla about new version release details ? For e.g. ESR v60.7.2

Posted

I am from application packaging team and we always have to package new versions of applications for all desktop users. For Mozilla we track all future release plan by the link "https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar" but its not appropriate. For e.g. Mozilla released the ESR version 60.7.2 on June 20 but we were not aware about this release date by release calendar provided by Mozilla. Hence I want any mechanism where I can get mails or any sort of alerts from Mozilla when they released new versions of ESR. Please assist.

There is no email service about updates available for Firefox. Firefox should regularly (each day) check for updates and prompt to download updates when available. If you want to check manually then you can look in the Browser Console to see what URL Firefox checks if you access "Help -> About Firefox". This is a Network -> XHR request, so you can disable other messages.

Look for something that starts with:

Example:

You can right-click the get URL and use "Open URL in New Tab".

You can always find the latest version here:

Hello, Thanks for your reply. In our organization we don't allow check for updates for the application we installed hence for every new version we create a package and push to users system from central deployment tool. I don't want to go to website every time manually and check if new version available , its require series of reminder to be set. Instead I want mechanism from Mozilla where they send announcement to registered/subscribed users if new version is released by them. Do we have such ?
