    Update on Firefox Support for Windows XP and Vista


    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...

    It's getting support until at least September.

    An elderly relation is still using Vista on her PC just for emailing and she currently has Firefox. Is there going to be any browser that will be OK to use with Vista after Sept 2017?

    Maybe Waterfox and Pale Moon - MAYBE. If so, the x64 versions will work here (as an added bonus)

    Um new versions of Palemoon only support Vista, not XP.

    End of Windows XP support in Pale Moon

    And latest Waterfox seems to support Windows 7 or newer:
    Waterfox - Downloads - The free, open and private browser

    Yes I only meant Vista (hence the forum we're in ) and at the time of the posting, Waterfox did still work with Vista.
