Firefox ESR v52 needs to be maintained to end of XP Support which is actually 9th April 2019 (due to Windows Embedded POSReady 2009)

For computer professionals, it is widely known Windows XP is still maintained by Microsoft (despite the MS propaganga that it is unsupported). Only a minor registry change enables this extended support (eg still receiving MS antivirus updates). Firefox's Windows support policy thus needs to be synced to this factually corrected OS life-cycle. A Firefox for Windows XP support termination date not earlier than June 2019 should be targetted.

My PC won't upgrade to Win 10 or current Linux. Win 7 is no longer available. Why are you abandoning XP users? Stand up to Microsoft !

My hardware won't support a newer OS than Windows 10. It is so bloated it would slow my system to a crawl. I can't even install the newest versions of Linux. And I HATE Linux. I'd LIKE to run WIndows 7, but Microsoft yanked all the LEGAL copies from the market before I could get a copy I won't buy a download and key from some shady website, only to find out the key doesn't work, or has been sold to 100 different people. Besides, the cheap hardware builder versions are NOT legal for end users.

I can't afford a new machine.   Nor do I want one.  My XP machine runs fine.   Imagine if Ford suddenly took your steering wheel away from you and told you you can't drive the car anymore.   People would have a fit.  They depend on their cars.  We depend on our computers too.  I fail to see why Mozilla can't maintain updates for Firefox under XP.  How many people are going to be writing "exploits" for XP, if it is the obsolete system you always say it is?  Mozilla is just bowing to pressure from Microsoft.

From the link below

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Allowing_only_certain_sites_to_use_JavaScript

We know that we can use Configurable Security Policies (CAPS) to implement a javascript whitelist. But after version 28, CAPS is removed from firefox. Therefore, we lost a built-in javascript whitelist feature.

Who knows some solutions or workarounds? ( Please note that DO NOT USE ANY ADD-ONS OR PLUGINS! )

As I previously posted, I am still having this problem with loading House of Fun in Facebook. This problem started when I logged in on 22 December 2017. I did have two answers that tried to help but neither of their solutions worked. Also, I don't know if it is why this has happened but I have tried to download Flash Player and it says it is downloaded but it is nowhere to be found. I have done this many times and am tired of this problem. Where does it go? Why isn't it visible? What am I doing wrong? I will put, once again, 4 screenshots of the app that won't load. Thank you, I would be happy for any assistance.

Firefox is incompatible with everything. First it constantly crashes on 64 bit win 7, So I went to Waterfox, but Waterfox is not compatible with mail.com. So, ok I give up n got a battery for my old laptop, no easy feet being a disabled Vet n with no income. xp, n Firefox, no crashes n I can get my email. Only now you are SCREEMING that you are discontinuing support for xp, declaring that we have to upgrade our os (which is NEVER good advice), the new computer with the new os being the beginning of this whole nightmare of incompatibilities.

I am using XP S/P 3 and am using 52.3.0esr as you stated that would be the last version applicable to me. Your email today sounded like good news BUT you did not detail that it would apply to my application.

I tried it and it worked but others may ignore your email thinking it would not apply to XP users. Suggest you explain that to your XP end of service users.

locking - same topic posted here - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1180913


After opening firefox and checking news or e-mail or whatever another copy of firefox opens. This might be 5, 10 , or 15 minutes later, some time later another copy opens. I have uninstalled firefox 6-7 times and then waited a day or two and then reinstalled it yet this problem keeps occuring. This started about 6 months ago and has me baffled. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

For just over 1 year now, copied text will not paste into online forums. left-click HIGHLIGHT text - right-click COPY - right-click PASTE This FireFox Browser "is always" checked for updates on a weekly schedule. I also clear cookies 2 - 5 times a week. This is becoming ver-veRY-VERY! irritating when I write a fair amount of text and try to post it but cannot. WHEN will this FF problem be fixed?

I have been sporadically been getting a popup from ziashahalia.org that wants me to download an "Urgent Firefox Update". I assume that it is a virus download because the Firefox website says that I have the latest update. Looks like Firefox has a security leak that hackers are taking advantage of.
