and use an ESR version but it is NOT intended for those individuals
still using older OSes but rather for enterprises that frequently are
using Windows 7 but may be on Windows 10, etc.
Yes it is but its created for those of us who still use windows 7 vista or
Its in the FAQ'S about the ESR relise channel.
Thats how i found out about it:)
I use it with Windows 8 Pro and I abandoned regular Fx when ESR first
came out because I hated the rapid release that Mozilla chose (very
unwisely I think) back then for regular Fx. I far prefer to not have
constant changes sprung on me especially where most of the changes are
just for the sake of change and further ruining of Fx. With ESR, I have
a year before I have to decide if I want the new, mostly ridiculous,
changes and I get security fixes during that year. So, I have found ESR
to be be far superior to regular Fx for my needs since ESR inception. I
am on Fx 45.9 ESR currently. Version 52.x will be pushed internally on
June 13 althogh I my decline it and stay with version 45 as my final Fx
