Firefox 102.3.0 ESR won't launch

Just downloaded this and FF won't launch. The splash screen appears then disappears without launching. I primarily use a 32 bit machine for the time being, but I tested it on my other 64 bit machine and it launches just fine.

Is 32 bit support for FF ESR at an end?

64-bit Only

I switched the ESR channel of the portable version to 64-bit only 3 months ago to save build time. The ESR channel isn't used much by our users. And it's only intended for organizations (corporations, universities, etc).

If you really need ESR on 32-bit for some reason, you can download it yourself and copy the files in, but it's not something I'll be supporting.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Yeah, but I believe yours (ESR) is the only portable version. Unless you know of somewhere else I can download it from?

Procedure, Reason?

To add in the 32-bit version, you need to manually download the installer from Mozilla's archive.mozilla.org server and then use 7-Zip Portable to open it and copy the files out into your Firefox Portable ESR install.

Why do you need 32-bit ESR? Is your organization still using 32-bit machines?

Don't know how to do that.

Some of us are, yeah. Total upgrade to 64 bit is supposed to happen the middle of next year. Then all our old Win 10 hardware will be retired.

Stable

Is there some reason you're not using the Stable channel? Does your organization require ESR? Stable is 32-bit plus 64-bit.
