Firefox's Extended Service Release [SOLVED]

Post by ukbobboy » Tue Jan 02, 2018 5:30 am

Dear Forum Members & Sandboxie experts

I am still a WinXP SP3 user, simply because it continues to works well for me, and I also use Firefox v51.0.1 (32 bit) as my "go to" browser, again because it's very flexible and works well.

However, today I came across Firefox v52.x new "Extended Service Release" browser which seem to indicate that it will still run under Win XP but no longer work with plug-ins that worked with v51.x, and that worries me because this may mean that Sandboxie, I have version 5.22 (32 bit), will not work anymore.

If possible, can anyone confirm whether Sandboxie will still work with Firefox's new ESR version of browsers?

Cheers


UK Bob

Firefox ESR 52.5.3 (32-bit) + Sandboxie 5.23.2 (64-bit) on W10 works for me.
Sandboxie 5.26 - W10 Home - WebrootSA - Chrome

Hi Bob, be aware, Sandboxie 5.22 is the last version that supports XP.

Hi Bob

Cheers for that piece of information, which I did not know about beforehand, so I guess I'll stay where I am until I'll have to upgrade, at the moment I do not need to.

Once again, cheers.
