I am stuck with Firefox ESR 52.9.0 solely because Google has not upgraded the Google Voice plugin for Gmail to be compatible with the latest Firefox version. (I also like Google Voice's small, unobtrusive, compact dialer in the bottom corner of the screen that enables me to read and work on other things while connected to a call, not the big full sized screen of Google Hangouts.) I know I'm not the only person with this issue.
It is becoming increasingly problematic to use Firefox ESR v52.9.0 with several other websites, which do not fully function because the websites' webmasters have upgraded their sites to be compatible with the latest Firefox version, not FF ESR.
It is also an embarrassment to have to contact the various company webmasters to request they modify their websites to be backward compatible with Firefox ESR because only one app (Google Voice) is holding me back from upgrading to the latest Firefox. So far, the companies whose webmasters I've contacted have cheerfully complied, but how much worse will this get before Google upgrades Google Voice?
I'm writing my question to Mozilla because I cannot get Google to respond, and I thought I might have better luck with you. I've read somewhere that Firefox and Google have been collaborating to fix this issue with Google Voice. If you have any information when Google Voice will work with the latest and greatest Firefox version, please let me know. Thanks
