Mozilla Releases Firefox 13 with New System RequirementsPosted on June 6th, 2012 at 05:00 7 comments
Mozilla has recently released version 13 of its popular Firefox web browser on their web site. However, this version requires a minimum of Windows XP SP2 to install and run Firefox. Firefox 13 will neither install nor run under pre-SP2 versions of Windows XP or with Windows 2000 and earlier as noted on its system requirements page.
See the Firefox 13 Release Notes page on what’s new in this version of Firefox.
Update 6/19: Mozilla has released Firefox 13.0.1 a few fays ago to fix some critical crashes with Adobe’s Flash Player 11.3 plugin. Go to the Firefox download page and update Firefox to version 13.0.1.
And be sure to update the Adobe Flash Player Plugin to a newer release to fix its current problems with Firefox when Adobe provides it later on.

It’s about time. Backward compatibility is good generally, but trying to maintain it too far back impedes forward development.
… and thanks, EP, for the post!
Don’t look back.
Now where have I heard that before?
