Mozilla has announced that it will no longer support its Firefox web browser on Windows XP and Vista starting June next year. 

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.

"Today we are announcing June 2018 as the final end of life date for Firefox support on Windows XP and Vista. 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."

Although Mozilla will continue patching Firefox for XP ad Vista, it is strongly urging users to move on to a supported version of Windows for security reasons.
