Vulnerability scanner and Firefox

Not sure where the right place for this question is, but here goes - I have noticed for a few months now that the vulnerability scanner does not recognise the ESR Firefox versions and highlights them as being out of date.

If you are not aware, ESR versions are stable versions with no feature updates for a few months whilst security updates still occur, so there is no security risk of ESR. They are mainly used by business but I know a few pros and home users who had enough of constant updates to FF especially them trying to ape the crazy feature release schedule of Chrome.

Can we have fix for this please?

Hi ​,

                                 Have you tried going into the Vulnerability Scanner settings and change your settings to 'Do not schedule a scan' ? I might add that I can bring this up to the concerned team,s attention.

Hi CD. I do actually want it to perform a scan periodically, but the issue is that it flags Firefox ESR as requiring update when in fact it does not.

There is no way of excluding that program and anyway I think it should correctly recognise ESR versions as being current from a security perspective, not outdated.
