Hi

Difficult to say 109% for certain, but I would expect it to.

What will be happening at that date is that Microsoft are not going to be supporting Windows 8 which will likely mean no further updates to the operating system.

Firefox should continue to work and receive updates - there are Firefox users still using Windows 7. Just be aware that (away from Firefox) the underlying operating system will no longer be getting security and stability updates.

We still occasionally see Win Xp users. And we do our best to help with Firefox issues.

I suggest finding and bookmarking support sites for Win 8. Most of those folks will continue supporting that version as best they can and it will help us help you when we can rule out OS issues.
