Update on Firefox Support for Windows XP and Vista
- https://blog.mozilla...r-xp-and-vista/
Dec 23, 2016 - "In approximately March, 2017, Windows XP and Vista users will automatically be moved to the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR*).
Firefox is one of the few browsers that continues to support Windows XP and Vista, and we expect to continue to provide security updates for users until September 2017. Users do not need to take additional action to receive those updates. In mid-2017, user numbers on Windows XP and Vista will be reassessed and a final support end date will be announced. In the meantime, we strongly encourage our users to upgrade to a version of Windows that is supported by Microsoft. Unsupported operating systems receive no security updates, have known exploits, and are dangerous for you to use. For planning purposes, enterprises using Firefox should consider September 2017 as the support end date for Windows XP and Vista. For more information please visit the Firefox support page**."
* https://www.mozilla..../organizations/

** https://support.mozi...ws-xp-and-vista
"... Firefox version 52 will be the last complete update for Windows XP and Windows Vista. Security updates will be released, but no new features... Firefox is one of the only browsers to offer any support for Windows XP and Vista. Microsoft itself ended support for Windows XP in 2014 and will end support for Windows Vista in 2017. Unsupported operating systems receive no security updates, have known exploits, and can be dangerous to use, which makes it difficult to maintain Firefox on those versions.
Firefox security updates for XP and Vista users will continue until September 2017, although new features will not be offered. In mid-2017, a final support end date will be announced based on the number of users still on Windows XP and Vista..."

Release notes

Mar 7, 2017
New:
- Added support for WebAssembly, an emerging standard that brings near-native performance to Web-based games, apps, and software libraries without the use of plugins.
- Enabled multi-process Firefox for Windows users with touch screens
- Added user warnings for non-secure HTTP pages with logins. Firefox now displays a “This connection is not secure” message when users click into the username and password fields on pages that don’t use HTTPS.
- Implemented the Strict Secure Cookies specification which forbids insecure HTTP sites from setting cookies with the "secure" attribute. In some cases, this will prevent an insecure site from setting a cookie with the same name as an existing "secure" cookie from the same base domain.
- Enhanced Sync to allow users to send and open tabs from one device to another...
Changed:
- Removed support for Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI) plugins other than Flash. Silverlight, Java, Acrobat and the like are no longer supported:

Firefox 'add-on' technology is modernizing
> https://support.mozi...ogy-modernizing
"'Add-ons' allow you to add extra features and functionality to Firefox. Anyone can create an extension and make it available for people to download.
>> What's happening?
In the past, add-ons often stopped working each time a new version of Firefox was released, because developers had to update them every six weeks to keep them compatible. Since add-ons could also modify Firefox internal code directly, it was possible for bad actors to include malicious code in an innocent-looking add-on.
To address these issues, and as part of broader efforts to modernize Firefox as a whole, we’ve been transitioning to a new framework for developing Firefox extensions. You can still personalize Firefox with add-ons the same way you do now, except they won’t break in new Firefox releases.
Note: Starting in Firefox 57, which will be released in November 2017, only add-ons built with this new technology will work in Firefox. These are indicated by the “Compatible with Firefox 57+” label on addons.mozilla.org (AMO). Add-ons built with the old technology are labeled “Legacy” on the about:addons tab.
If an add-on does not have the "Compatible with 57+" label or has the -Legacy- label, the developer may be in the process of transitioning to the new technology..."

Fake Firefox updates...
> https://support.mozi...-firefox-update
"We have received reports from many users who were interrupted in their browsing experience and who got redirected to a -fake- page purporting to provide an "urgent" or "critical" update and prompting to download a firefox-patch.js (or .exe) file. Some people have also reported seeing -ads- prompting them to download a Firefox update. These are -scam- tactics trying to trick you into installing malware!... To our knowledge those notices are a form of "malvertising": those fake notices get triggered by code contained in -ads- that are displayed on otherwise legitimate websites you are visiting and get spread through advertisement networks. This is an example how such a fake update notice may look like - they are hosted on randomly generated and quickly changing domains:
>> https://support.cdn....7-10-c81e72.png
... -Fake-updates- have been spotted for other popular browsers. Although we cannot root out every bad actor on the web, we are continuing to improve Firefox's defenses against malware. Knowing how to recognize and report such frauds helps us keep the Internet open and safer."
