Mozilla Firefox 1.5 reaches End of Life
Posted on 4-Jun-2007 21:48. | Tags Filed under: News.

Mozilla released the final update for Firefox 1.5 and recommends that Firefox 1.5 users upgrade to Firefox 2 to have a more secure experience on the Web.

The developers warned that while Firefox 1.5 is current with the latest security and stability updates from Mozilla, it will not receive future updates. Users of the 1.5 version may be vulnerable when new security issues arise on the Web.

Firefox 1.5 users will be prompted via the auto-update alert in the browser to download the update called This update includes an upgrade mechanism that gives users the ability to easily migrate to Firefox 2. Users will receive an alert in the next few weeks when the upgrade is available. They can also go to the Mozilla official website to download the latest version of Firefox.

Mozilla explains that by ending product support for older software versions Mozilla can better channel developers’ contribution toward the most up-to-date version of the browser. This ensures Firefox users can access Mozilla’s effective search and communication tools and benefit from the most secure browser Mozilla offers.

Shortly after the launch of Firefox 2, Mozilla announced it would stop updating Firefox 1.5 and give users approximately six months to upgrade to the newest version of Firefox.
