Why you would not update the latest version field?[edit source]

Mozilla releases an new Firefox version when it is ready. However for a long time, it has been just stuck with "Firefox 95.0.2 and Firefox ESR 91.4.1" until this anonymous user changed it to "Firefox 97.0.1 and Firefox 91.6.0esr". That's an huge skip. Can you remove these latest version fields? Because it is feeling like 95.0.2 is the last Firefox version. — Preceding unsigned comment added by BetaLover (talkcontribs)

Firefox 56 on Windows XP?[edit source]

I tried to have Firefox 56 working on Windows XP using XomPie extended kernel, but I can't. I can only get Firefox 53 working. If you get working Firefox 54, 55 and 56 on Windows XP using XomPie extended kernel, then post screenshot and steps how did you get it here. Of course I used the Windows XP SP3 Fully Updated ISO.

Unfortunately, I don't have a Windows XP VM, so I haven't tested it out. However, if I try to get Firefox 54 or newer working on Windows XP, it will say "Firefox is not a valid Win32 application". Firefox Setup will also say "Sorry, Firefox can't be installed. This version of Firefox requires Microsoft Windows 7 or newer". 65.93.83.80 09:03, 25 March 2022 (UTC)
You can extract the installer, as it is technically a LZMA archive. The Firefox files (and also firefox.exe) are stored in "core", launching the app however on XP will cause FF to immediately crash due to missing kernel exports. The same on Vista, but there is a extended kernel, which allows to run newer versions of FF on Vista (SP2 and latest updates recommended). I also tested newer FF versions on Windows 7 pre-releases and even though the latest versions even work on builds 7048 and newer, those versions with the new Proton interface have a serious problem with font rendering
