|Platform||Desktop||OS||Windows Vista 64||OS Version||Home Premium SP2|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||3.2|
|Summary||0001599: Inproper detection of Firefox ESR ( Extended Service Release )|
|Description||SUMO does not distinguish obsolete Firefox versions|
and Firefox ESR 10.0.x ( extended support release )
Everybody who has FF 10.0.x has FF ESR and is using FF ESR for the reason.
He is not interested in stable FF 12.x of FF 13, but in FF ESR 10.0.x, or future releases.
FF ESR uses its own ESR update channel, containing just security and bug fixes,
until new majer ESR update is released, cca yearly.
It is never auto updated to normal FF release.

||Please zip and attach its firefox.exe here for analysis|
||OK, later tomorrow, when I got to work, at home I use FF 13.|
||OK thanks !|
||Added Zipped Firefox.exe ESR 10.0.5|
||Is ESR indicated somewhere with FF in Add/Remove control panel ?|
Hmm, I will see On Monday at work.
But things go more complicated.
AFAIK until now the FF kept M.N numbering.
But recently released patch for current last stable is 13.0.1.
What I have said previously about normal versus ESR numbering is not correct.
I'm currently unable to find anything to distinct ESR from general release.. ;-(
Should anyone have a clue, i'd be happy if you share :)
A little trick:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref\channel-prefs.js"
//@line 2 "e:\builds\moz2_slave\rel-m-rel-w32-bld\build\browser\app\profile\channel-prefs.js"
This is from Normal FF 13.0.1
I bet there would be some ESR string instead of release.
Note that the above may be just default

Possible values and their effects
(The type of build you originally downloaded determines the default value of this pref.)
release All final releases.
esr Special release channel for extended support releases.
beta Betas / release candidates (up to Gecko 2.0 also final releases).
nightly All nightly builds.
default No updates.
It is possible, that internally the executable are not to set
for belonging to either of update channels,
that they are just particular FF version.
The update mechanism may decide according to channel configuration,
what versions belong to which channel and what versions follow, if any new.
