Firefox-maker Mozilla is finally pulling the plug on support for Windows XP and Vista, removing the last remaining supported browser for the old operating systems.

Firefox 52, released earlier this year, was the last fully supported version of the browser for XP and Vista. In March, Mozilla moved these users across to the Firefox extended support release (ESR) version, which only provides security updates.

The non-profit says Firefox for XP and Vista will reach “final end of life” in June 2018.

“As one of the few browsers that continues to support Windows XP and Vista, Firefox users on these platforms can expect security updates until that date. Users do not need to take additional action to receive those updates,” Mozilla says.


Windows XP is so end of life yet Microsoft still issues security patches because so many people are running it still.
