Firefox 53 is last for Android 4.4?

Talk about Mozilla browsers for small devices such as PDAs and cellphones.

Hello there. I have android tablet (pretty old, but still good) running Android 4.4 on X86 Intel CPU and i using Firefox Beta (currently 53) as main browser. Several days ago, after usual Firefox update from Google Play i suddently received notification "Firefox will not be updated on this device anymore. click here fo details". After clicking i received pretty much 404 page on SUMO (Sumo links is so broken recently). So far i haven found any info about bumping Android minimal requirement up, any info?

No, I'm almost certain that was a false positive - what's actually being dropped is support for non-NEON processors (starting from Firefox 53), but that is only relevant for ARM devices.
