Mozilla to End Firefox Support for OS X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 in August

Yesterday, Mozilla announced the end of Firefox support for Apple customers using Mac OS X versions 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8. The cutoff date is August 2016.

Mozilla says it took this step following Apple’s decision to end support for these OS X versions as well.

Apple released Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) in August 2009, Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) in July 2011, and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) in July 2012. Apple announced the end of official support for Snow Leopard in February 2014, for Lion in October 2014, and for Mountain Lion in December 2014.

Now, Mozilla is saying that, after August 2016, Firefox versions running on these operating systems will no longer receive new features or security updates.
