Impact of FF3.6 support being stopped.


Hi, I had a question.

Regarding the FF3.6 warning about support being stopped, I assume that people who have it on their machine can still use it as they used to. Please let me know if that's correct?

Thank You.

Regards, Sid

Support for Firefox 3.6 is currently scheduled to end on April 24th 2012.

You can carry on using it after that date for as long as you want, just be aware that if any security holes are identified they will not be fixed.

P.S. you are currently using an old version of Firefox 3.6, the latest version is available from http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all-older.html - it currently has 3.6.26, with version 3.6.27 due out very soon.
