For the planned dates for upcoming releases, see the column 'release date' in the Future branch dates table in the Mozilla wiki.

Mozilla ralentirait à 42 semaines le cycle de développement de Firefox spécialement pour les entreprises - Proposition d'une Extended Support Release (ESR)

En voici donc une traduction rapide : Introduction Le passage à un nouveau processus de développement et de publication a été difficile pour les organisations qui déploient Firefox pour leurs utilisateurs dans un environnement administré. Nous avons entendu deux préoccupations principales : Le calendrier de publication ne laisse pas suffisamment de temps aux organisations et à leurs fournisseurs pour certifier les nouvelles versions des produits.La politique de fin de vie associée les expose à des risques de sécurité considérables si elles restent sur une version non actuelle après Firefox 3.6.

This is an archive of the process by which the ESR channel & builds were created, it's not kept up to date with more information, for that go HERE.


Update 2014-02-11 The original plan for ESR was to do 3 extended support releases and then potentially EOL that branch and its associated resources. However as we've gotten more streamlined about supporting the ESR releases alongside mainline Firefox it's become fairly trivial to keep this branch running and with the mailing list becoming community-driven, even more so.

As such there is no plan at this time to end ESR releases, the next ESR version will be 31 and each subsequent one will be 7 version numbers higher. At some point down the road we might need to reclaim the resources ESR uses, perhaps turn over the build generation to community, or other issues with backporting security fixes might become blockers that result in this branch being to rest. For now, we'll continue the cadence and structure that has worked for the past 2+ years. Deploying Firefox in an enterprise environment. NPAPI Plugins in Firefox. Mozilla has been steadily improving the Web platform to support features that were once only available via NPAPI plugins.

NPAPI Plugins in Firefox

Streaming video, advanced graphics, and gaming features have all become native Web APIs in the past few years. Mozilla continues to prioritize features that will make it possible for sites to switch away from plugins. Features such as clipboard access which used to require plugins are now available via native Web APIs. As browsers and the Web have grown, NPAPI has shown its age. Plugins are a source of performance problems, crashes, and security incidents for Web users. Mozilla intends to remove support for most NPAPI plugins in Firefox by the end of 2016. Because Adobe Flash is still a common part of the Web experience for most users, we will continue to support Flash within Firefox as an exception to the general plugin policy. Websites and publishers which currently use plugins such as Silverlight or Java should accelerate their transition to Web technologies.
