Re: Attention Windows XP/Vista users using Firefox: Firefox 52 will likely be the last one to support these versions of Windows

I use NVDA 13 and I mostly use XP and Windows 7.  But the only reason I use NVDA 13 is because I'm too lazy to modify a new installation and because I prefer the interface used for what was then called flat review.  It has nothing to do with the general performance of the program.  I use XP because I do nothing of a personal nature on my XP machines and because I take precautions the majority of computer users don't take to prevent infection.  I also don't want to lose my investment in machines.  And even with those precautions, I wouldn't use my XP machines for any personal transactions that expose personal data.
