Firefox version news

Recommended Posts

Hi, guys!

Mozilla recently changed their site so that version numbers are no longer listed within the URIs for the 'all' and 'organizations' pages. The version numbers are still there, but different. Now at the opening HTML tag of any page on the site (at least all the ones I've tested) it has the version numbers in new attributes:

<html ... data-latest-firefox="56.0.2" data-esr-versions="52.4.1" 

There are also new universal download URIs for the most current versions (replace the lang parameter with the one you need):

Standard:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=win64&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=linux&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US

ESR:
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=win64&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=linux&lang=en-US
https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-esr-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US

Hopefully this will help anyone else out whose Firefox downloads suddenly stopped working.

I encountered this problem early this morning and had to check and modify some entries in my database. Thank you for the clarification here in the forum.

By the way, the AddOn pages have also changed. So I had to adapt all my AddOn templates.
