    Version 52.1.2 extended support release(ESR) of Mozilla Firefox has been released and can be obtained here:
    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

    Version 53 and newer only supports Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 and will not install in Windows XP SP3 and Windows Vista SP2.

    If you want to continue to receive updates and support for version 52 in them, you need to install and use the ESR version.

    Firefox 52.x ESR(extended support release) is for Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    Firefox 53.x doesn't support these 2 operating systems, so you need to use Firefox 52.x ESR in them to keep that browser supported and up-to-date.

    At this time, Firefox 52.1.2 ESR and Firefox 53.0.3 are the most current versions.

    Does 52 support Flash? I know 42 and later will block programs that are out of date and want to make sure beforehand, otherwise I won't be able to watch videos, play flash games, etc. (39 allows you to keep using Flash despite it being out of date).

    The current version is now 52.2.0 for Mozilla Firefox ESR.
    https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/

    I have Adobe Flash Player 26.0.0.131 installed in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
    As far as I know, it works fine.
