I will not be able to update my computer until the middle of August. Can I still use Vista until then?

Chosen solution

Firefox 52.9.0esr was the last major update for the legacy Fx 52 ESR. The 52 ESR was made for Enterprise users in mind as it was a bonus that it was a option for WinXP/Vista users to be supported for a while longer.

After September 5th the legacy 52 ESR will get no more updates as the current versions then will be 62.0 and 60.2.0esr.

Firefox 53.0 and later requires Windows 7, 8 (8.1), 10 to run. You can also dual boot with a current Linux distro with a light desktop to use current Firefox versions.
