Mozilla offers an Extended Support Release (ESR) cycle for Firefox that gives users a longer support tail than what is currently offered with regular Firefox releases. This ESR version is available for users who wish to remain on the ESR cycle. Please see Mozilla Firefox Extended Support Release for more information.
