Support change spells end for Mozilla Firefox 1.0.x


Mozilla Thursday outlined a new support policy that includes a "sunset" provision which will quash any further security updates to the Firefox 1.0.x, Thunderbird 1.0.x, and Mozilla Suite 1.7.x product lines.

"Firefox 1.0.8 marks the end-of-life of the 1.0.x product line," Mozilla said in an online statement.

Mozilla defined its new support policy by saying that it would, of course, continue to roll out security updates for the current version - which in Firefox's case is the 1.5 family - but that all support for prior versions would end six months after the introduction of the most current edition.
