I have Windows XP Professional English SP3 installed in an Oracle Virtual Machine. For some reason or another, Internet Explorer stopped browsing to pages having SSL (https). I went to several web pages on the internet. They said this and that, but I managed to narrow it down to the SSL part. I recently received an update to Oracle Virtual Box, so that can also be the culprit. I also have another XP Professional English SP3 virtual machine with no additional software installed besides antivirus software, and in that machine, I had installed a pretty fresh version of Mozilla Firefox, so I tested it, and there was no problem at all surfing, but Internet Explorer refused to display the web page. This is why I would like to have a link to the above mentioned version of Firefox, as you stated in another thread that that particular version was the last one to be supported by Windows XP.


Thanks in advance! Thomas J. Ekman SWEDEN

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

On the ESR installers page, there is a selector at the top of the list above the icons, right side, that defaults to

Show: Firefox 60

For a few more weeks, you can click Firefox 52 next to that to switch to the older download.

Install Older Version Of Firefox {web link} Be sure to read everything here.

If you still want to downgrade, look under; I still want to downgrade. Click the Directory of other versions and languages link. Look for the directory of the version that you want. But, remember that old versions may have security issues.

I found the directory containing the correct release, but it is made up of several subdirectories, which I assume I must create myself on the virtual machine, but how about file associations, registry settings and other stuff? The only version I see with a complete setup is v 60. How should I proceed? Should I install v60 and then replace everything by the contents in the zip file for 52.9.0esr?

On https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ you find the 52.9.0esr folder then pick the win32 folder (32-bit Windows) then the language (say en-US or en-GB for example) then download the setup.

Not sure if this legacy url will still be in use when the old legacy 52 ESR is made EOL on Sept 5 with no more updates.

Older ESR support for 52.9.0esr can be found here https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/52.9.0esr/ Take care if you need this for Windows XP Pro SP3 and download the correct file.

For ESR Firefox 60.2.0esr Use this link - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

Latest 62.0 releases are here https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/all/ or the US site https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/ Both hyperlinks go to all Languages downloads

Already mentioned how to get 52.9.0esr and that you need the 32-bit version as Win64 requires 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 10.

This thread was started by a WinXP user which is why I did not link to 60 ESR at time.

Firefox 53.0 (technically the 52.0.x Release itself also) and later requires Windows 7, 8, 10 to run so 60.2.0esr will not work on Windows XP and Vista.
