Please create "Mozilla Firefox 68.0.1 ESR" portable version

Hello everyone!

https://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/Mozilla%20Firefox%2C%20Portable%20Ed./

Here we have only 68.0.1 regular and 60.8.0 ESR. But still no v68.0.1 ESR. Please someone create and upload this version.

Thank you.

English is not my first

English is not my first language, so it's difficult for me to read all this text. Could you please tell me all this in simple and short?

Use Stable

Get Firefox Portable Stable 68.0.1. If you want the new major version of ESR as soon as it's released when both the old and new versions are released at the same time, you should not be using ESR, you should be using Firefox Portable Stable. ESR is only for organizations that have specific needs for testing compatibility and extensions.

Stable

Use Stable then. ESR 68.0.1 and Stable 68.0.1 are the same thing. If you always switch to the leading edge ESR as soon as it is release, you're missing the point of ESR and should be using Stable. ESR is supposed to be used by large organizations to be able to test and ensure compatibility of sites, web apps, and extensions.

Yes

As outlined in the above link, once stable moves on to a major version update, ESR moves up. We make sure ESR and Stable are never on the same version as that entirely defeats the purpose of it.
