#26354 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make sure only Linux users with SSE2 support are trying to use Tor Browser based on ESR60

Description

There might still be Linux users without SSE2 support out there but since Firefox 53 the SSE2 requirement for Linux is active, too, see: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1274196.

We should

a) make sure Linux users without SSE2 are not updating to the new Tor Browser (we have minSupportedInstructionSet: SSE2 for Windows already which might be enough here)

and

b) amend our start script to check for SSE2 support.

For more information and the Windows context, see: #19316.

Looks good to me. Merged to master (commit f606f5d9d55a171e0a6f57ad58e1052c9f7c149d).

Not sure what you mean, but Windows 7 doesn't require SSE2 as any other well-designed software, and it's a shame for open-source projects to suck more than windoze.
