Does today's security update on the 52.1 ESR(Intel) channel for Firefox & lack of on the 45.9 ESR (Intel) indicate that 45.9 end of life is now unsafe to use? Does this update mean 45.9 TFF needs a chem spill update?

45.9.0 is still being offered for download in all platforms from Mozilla. I wonder what that means.

45.9 and 52.1 are the same security level and were released on the same date. See https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/
For TenFourFox FPR1, 52.2 security issues that are relevant to 45 will be backported.

...but 52 was updated from 52.1 to 52.1.1 yesterday while 45.9 received no such update. The advisory says it's windows only but 45.9 was not updated for windows. Has Mozilla abandoned 45 support while still offering it for download?

The specific issue 52.1.1 fixes is not present on ESR45 because it uses different, unaffected code in that section. (Neither bug affects us since it is in Windows-only code at that.)

Thanks. Just wanted to know when 45.9 esr intel becomes poison.

Looks like June 13th is the end for this ESR.

Any news on the "Tensixfox" development progress? EOL for 45.9esr has been reached. Do you know if it is safe to use?

There are a lot of security changes landing on 52 and many of them are relevant to 45, so I would say it is becoming less and less safe, at minimum.
I haven't heard anything further from the TenSixFox developer.

Thanks, gonna have to go to Waterfox on Lion with 64 bit 4,1 macbook I guess. Waterfox won't run on SL. 32 bit SL is in limbo with os x now I guess.
