For all those who are tired of Mozilla's never-ending updates

I just found out that you can download an "Extended Service Release" ("ESR") copy of Firefox. This version of Firefox will receive security patches every 6 weeks, and after a year, the ESR "jumps" to the most current version of Firefox. So, right now, the ESR version is Firefox 10. Firefox 10 ESR will receive security patches until the end of this year, at which time the ESR will update to Firefox 17.


Seems like a good way to stay safe, and relatively current, without having to deal with updates every month or so (I'm sick of the constant updating!)


  • I wasn't able to check on this. If this is how ESR goes, will try it myself.. Thanks for sharing.image
