Firefox To Kill Off Vista And XP Support By Next June

Here’s another reason for you to upgrade to Windows 10 if you’re still running Windows XP or Vista. Firefox, which is the last browser to support Vista and XP will drop support for those two operating systems next June:

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.

We strongly encourage our users to upgrade to a version of Windows that is supported by Microsoft. Unsupported operating systems receive no security updates, have known exploits, and are dangerous for you to use.

So consider this a big push for you to upgrade to a newer operating system so that you can run Firefox…. And pretty much anything else that’s out there at present. While you have six months or so before Firefox no longer supports Vista and XP, you should plan on making the move now as that would be less painful.
