The previous versions of Firefox routed for breaking extension compatibility and the l developers soon manually updated the extensions to support the new version.

Firefox for Android has also made massive improvements to the earlier version.

This version of Firefox is appreciated for being the first Extended Support Release version, a program provided especially for enterprise users and IT professionals that are too much concerned and pensive from rapid updates.
