I noticed there were 2 versions of ESR 24.8 (24.8.0 and 24.8.1).
I assume there was an issue with .0 and .1 is new and improved?

I would also like to add, I very much appreciate the work you put into these msi packages.

Older versions of Firefox have a flaw in a shared library the prevents them from adequately verifying whether RSA signatures are valid. Firefox 24.8.1 includes a patch for this vulnerability, as does 31.1.1 and 32.0.3.

As for why older versions are available, I'm sure it has to do with people who get fixated on using a particular version, damn the vulnerabilities present in it. I can understand why they get into that mode, mind you, I just can't understand continuing to use software that forces customers into that vicious cycle.

Yeah, I want to put out 'old' versions because there are still places that won't deploy unless a specific version has been validated. And many times, it's an old version.

Any word on a date for a 31.1 ESR CE Release ? We have a few sites we work with that want us on 31 now and I would prefer to use ESR CE . Thanks for all the work you put into doing this.
