Firefox ESR

ESR = Extended Support Release for those that require plugins as since v52 they are no longer supported otherwise and will end by March 2018 completely.

Certain releases of Firefox have a corresponding numbered ESR version and the following changes can be used to update to ESR, otherwise a complet new installation will be required.

A temporary hack to enable plugins
". . . there is a way to enable Java, Silverlight etc NPAPI plugins in Firefox 52 using an about:config setting. Add new Boolean string "plugin.load_flash_only" and set it to false. Then restart the browser.”

Firefox 52 can be updated to ESR by a couple of file hacks or can be downloaded in full from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/52.0esr/releasenotes/

To enable the ESR release example for standard Windows 10 installation:

  1. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\prefs\channel-prefs.js

    Change
    pref("app.update.channel", "release");
    to
    pref("app.update.channel", "esr");

  2. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\update-settings.ini.

    Change the line
    ACCEPTED_MAR_CHANNEL_IDS=firefox-mozilla-release
    to
    ACCEPTED_MAR_CHANNEL_IDS=firefox-mozilla-esr

Basically replace the word release with esr. You may have to exit Firefox to access and change the files, then can check that it worked via the Firefox ?>about Firefox that should state you are now on the release channel. You may then have the option to update to the ESR release.

Win 10 Start-up Problems

From previous post Problem with Mobi WinTab 803W
1. Screen gets to background with clock but cannot slide screen to login, try waiting 5 min.
2. Troubleshoot > Advanced > Restore
Preparing System Restore asked to select account but screen is unresponsive, anyway the password was the initial problem.
With a screen with no response a hard restart is required by holding the power button down for 20 seconds to switch off
