Mozilla Support Policy Spells End For Firefox 1.0.x

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla Corp. Thursday outlined a new support policy that includes a "sunset" provision which will quash any further security updates to the Firefox 1.0.x, Thunderbird 1.0.x, and Mozilla Suite 1.7.x product lines. New policy would make May 29 the end of the line for Firefox 1.0.x.

"[Firefox 1.0.8] marks the end-of-life of the 1.0.x product line," Mozilla said in an online statement.

Mozilla defined its new support policy by saying that it would, of course, continue to roll out security updates for the current version -- which in Firefox's case is the 1.5 family -- but that all support for prior versions would end 6 months after the introduction of the most current edition.
