Hey, Firefox 3.6 users, look out for Firefox 7.0.1!

October 6th, 2011

Today Mozilla will start pushing Firefox 7.0.1 onto people who are still using Firefox 3.6.

It's all part of the plan:

* We will be offering an advertised update (also sometimes called a “major update”) for Firefox 3.6.x -> Firefox 7.0 on 2011-10-06 (1 week and 2 days after Firefox 7’s release)

* The advertised update has no bearing on support levels. It does not mean Firefox 3.6 is end-of-life

* The advertised update has no bearing on the Firefox ESR proposal[3]

* This is part of the old release process and is unchanged from what we have been doing for the past 3+ years

* The prompt is opt-in…if users decline, they stay on 3.6.x and get security updates until the next time we decide to prompt

So don't freak out if you see it!
