why firefox is not support windows embedded posready 2009 which still support from os provider can i still safe with old version?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The decision has been made for a long time now and is not going to change now just to support something that a minority may use until EOL in April next year.

Firefox 53.0 and later completely dropped support of the EOL WinXP and Vista so no new version is a an option. It was a bonus that the 52 ESR was a option for WinXP and Vista users to still have a browser option for a while longer. It was almost 2 1/2 years past when Chrome, Chromium, Opera dropped XP/Vista back in April 2016 and 4 1/2 years since Microsoft made XP EOL in support for regular users.
