HI, we are using ESR-68.6 and I wondered when it's EOL comes up.

Where - how do I find that? I have just spent 5-minutes with
firefox esr end-of-life
firefox esr support end
firefox esr timeline
firefox esr need to update
firefox esr expires

and more, but nothing useful shows up. Why is it such a secret?

Thanks, I think, but I cannot find a date anywhere on that page for when support ends for v68.x

Am I missing something there?

When is imperative to leave 68.x and go to 74.xxx?

09/22/2020 - When everyone on 68.12 ESR is updated to 78.3 ESR.

It isn't imperative to leave 68.xx and go to 74.xx at all, because 74.xx is the current release version and not an ESR release.

Ahhh, thank you.

OK, so it is a version number and not a date?
