Windows XP was and still is one of the most used operating system of Microsoft. Windows Vista was its successor but it was known as one of the worst OS Microsoft ever produced. And after the company itself dropped support for both the operating system, it’s about time other companies do the same.
Mozilla Firefox, though stopped the mainstream support for the Windows XP and Vista back in March, but now the company has announced that it is completely ending the support for Firefox in June 2018. The announcement means that Firefox will no longer receive security updates or any sort of updates for XP and Vista after 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.
Mozilla promised last December to reassess user numbers in mid-2017 and planned to stop the updates in September 2017. A bit late, but the time has finally come. Users should not expect the company to extend it any further and move to a newer version of Windows.
