What is the difference between Firefox ESR 60.8.0 and Firefox ESR 68.0.1?

Posted

For as long as I can remember, the ESR version of Firefox was different from the regular. For example: Regular firefox would be 67.0.4. Firefox ESR would be 60.7.2. Usually that second number in regular firefox was in the middle decimal point number in ESR firefox.

Now I'm seeing these two versions... Firefox 60.8.0 ESR Firefox 68.0.1 ESR.

Is Firefox 68.0.1 really ESR??? That sounds to me like a main train version of Firefox. When did this change to sync up the number?

About once a year, a new ESR series starts based on a later version of Firefox. It was 45, then 52, then 60, now 68. There's a little "roadmap" diagram on the following page with key dates:

As for what changed between Firefox 60 and 68, a lot.

Oh wow I didn’t realize it was that time already. Time really flies. I’ll install it on one machine to test. We use some enterprise apps that work in Firefox.

Thanks!
