Mozilla Firefox Update No Longer An Option For Windows XP And Vista
On June 13, 2017, Firefox 54 was released to the public. This new release addresses compatibility, security, and stability issues. However, this will only be available for users with operating systems such as Windows 7, 8, and 10. Other dated versions will no longer receive support from Microsoft.
If your OS have been left behind for quite some time now, you better get it upgraded to be able to use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. Since Microsoft has discontinued support for Windows XP and soon Windows Vista, continuing to use them might create some problems soon. It can also be difficult to maintain Firefox with the said outdated versions.
Firefox can be downloaded and installed in many languages for Mac, Linux, and Windows on both 32- and 64-bit architectures. At the same time, it can be downloaded from Google Play Store, as well as the App Store. Moreover, there are other pre-released versions of Firefox that you can try from Mozilla Firefox’s official website.
If you already have a version of Firefox on your computer, make sure that it is updated. Updating can be done automatically, which means that you can download and install without doing anything upon each new version that comes. You can check your settings by going to Options > Advanced > Update from the Firefox browser.
Take note that switching to other browsers may not be an option if you are using a dated operating system such as Windows Vista and XP. This is because Microsoft Internet Explorer and Google Chrome no longer support them. Security updates can still be expected though until September 2017.
Make sure that you are using a supported version of Windows to easily maintain Firefox. Otherwise, you can switch to an operating system based on Linux to get the latest version and the newest features of Firefox.
