...... I think the deal killer for me was certain favorite extensions were not compatible.....
When FF 64 bit first came out, warnings about extensions caused me to delay upgrading. By the time I upgraded (voluntarily) it was a non-issue.

Unless  the add on developers have been working hard, we may all have that problem to some extent, regardless of 32 or 64 bit, when version 57 comes out.

It seems 52 was the last version to support XP.  According to this link, XP users were migrated to ESR: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/end-support-windows-xp-and-vista

Version 57.0, first offered to Release channel users on November 14, 2017

Brace yourself for an all-new Firefox. It’s fast. Really fast. It’s over twice as fast as Firefox from 6 months ago, built on a completely overhauled core engine with brand new technology from our advanced research group, and graced with a clean, modern interface. Today is the first of several releases we’re calling Firefox Quantum, all designed to get to the things you love and the stuff you need faster than ever before. Experience the difference on desktops running Windows, macOS, and Linux; on Android, speed improvements are landing as well, and both Android and iOS have a new look and feel. To learn more about Firefox Quantum, visit the Mozilla Blog.
