The ESR (Extended Service Release) build is already on the servers...so the regular build should be there in time unless something goofy happens.

Looks like someone made a mistake. We're definitely on 16 right now and 17 should be out today.

Skyfrog beat me to it, someone made a mistake. 17 should be out later today, and 18 will be released in Jan.

Quite a lot of changes in FF17, better read this: https://blog.mozilla...for-firefox-17/
and confirm about compatibility yourself.

I really don't like the social features they are integrating into it, even if they are optional there are already addons that do that stuff. No need to build it right into the browser, that's just pointless feature creep. Have they forgotten what made Firefox popular in the first place?

Social integration, you are having a laugh.
Someone fork firefox and remove all the **** that's getting added in to it lately.

Extended is probably the one that they're doing for businesses, i.e. it'll be extended support.
You know, when mozilla said businesses shouldn't be using firefox and made releases very fast so all business dumped firefox, they lost a lot of market share and now want it back again so said it was a little misunderstanding?

Actually Mozilla didn't say that. Mozilla said that businesses should be on the ESR channel, not the release channel.

As such they release a new version every 7 major builds that is an ESR build...and it will automatically take those businesses from 10 to 17.
