17.0.9esr[edit]

I think 17.0.9esr should now be RED not GREEN in the list. Now we have 24esr! 83.77.253.211 (talk) 12:15, 19 October 2013 (UTC)

Good Doubt :) But it is still may be available for Download! Raghusri (talk) 18:28, 20 October 2013 (UTC)
17.0.10esr is now available so 17.0.9esr is now RED. Although 17.0.10esr should be the last version of the 17.0.x ESR branch, it is still supported and should stay YELLOW until the end of the current cycle with the releases of Firefox 26.0 and 24.2.0esr. See this approved proposal from Mozilla. GbDorn (talk) 14:40, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

What is this article for?[edit]

I think this article is against the Wikipedia's policy on software updates. Especially since the rapid release schedule, listing all nightly/aurora/6-7 beta releases for each version is quite useless and takes A LOT of place. (By the way a lot of them are missing if you look at the ftp server...) There is absolutely no need for this since changes between these versions are insignificant for the most part.

I could see the point in having the dates and changelogs for the first nightly/aurora/beta for each version if there were enough differences between them or if some features were added/removed between nightly/aurora/beta/release and it was stated in the article. The last column of the table is supposed to be "Significant changes" but Firefox 7 is the last to have had any listed.

Actually I think this page is useless as all relevant information (except for the codenames) can be found in Mozilla_Firefox#Release_history and History of Firefox. GbDorn (talk) 15:55, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
