Developer Edition aka Aurora was a development channel and was not versions or codenames of Firefox. It is currently only Release < Beta < Nightly channels.

You can look in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/ then year folder the look around in month folder and the folders that mention aurora.

Thanks, so which folder means develop version?
when doing addon development, we need develop edition, otherwise, any minor changes need to sign.

Try the devedition folder.

http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/devedition/releases/

I got the same file from url 1 and 2.

Code: Select all
1. http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/devedition/releases/57.0b14/win32/en-US/Firefox Setup 57.0b14.exe
2. https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=win&lang=en-US
