Why this weird opinion on firefox 12 etc. ?

ddepietro asked thisSmiley Tonguelease let me know if Mozilla will work on Windows XP after Microsoft stops their support of XP in April 2014?

The answer was: Helpful Reply Diego Victor said this below.

Firefox will work in Windows XP, but doesn't work in windows with Service Pack 1 and 2(Service Pack i'm not 100% sure), but in Service Pack 3 yes.

Seems incorrect. Seems the opposite of the firefox website info! I am honest! Look at it yourself.

Why the wrong answer written incorrect?


Previous scholars on firefox including their own website said:

Mozilla says: Firefox 3.6.28 and Firefox 12 are the last versions of Firefox that will work with the original version of Windows XP and Windows XP Service Pack 1.

Is Firefox saying that firefox 9 and earlier will not work?

I tried firefox 9 and it works well. Why did firefox lie? It says they are the last versions that will work. What does last versions of Firefox will work mean? Last versions!


jscher2000 said: I'm not sure I understand your question. Firefox 12 being the last version to support XP without SP2 implies that Firefox versions 4-11 would also work on XP without SP2.

cor-el said: The last version means that version released after Firefox 12 i.e Firefox 13 and later, including the current Firefox 24 release won't work. All older Firefox versions will still work on Windows XP SP1.

This is what cor-el and jscher2000 said so Yes.

You should continue in your original thread if you had questions still. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/975060

No one should run Windows XP without at least Service Pack 2. At least, they should not connect it to any networks.
