Apparently, Waterfox and Cyberfox 52x both support Vista.  In both cases this should include x64 support.  Waterfox regular release post-52x have not been running on Vista however.

:(

Edit: Cyberfox v52.2 has removed Vista support.  It was removed after v52.0 (however the developer cites that even the x86 version does NOT work - yet Firefox v52x does - WTF???)

Waterfox 53.0.3 runs fine in Windows Vista, however later versions do not (I am the OP of this issue): https://github.com/MrAlex94/Waterfox/issues/166

i was using waterfox 53.3.0 or something was working on my vista sp2 x64,until i clicked check for updates and updated to 54.0 which gave me kernel32 errors.

Again, Waterfox 53.0.3 is the last version for Windows Vista. However, if you check out the link above, you'll find where the head developer told me that he has plans for a separate release for older platforms, presumably Vista/XP x64.

SUMMARY OF CHANGES TO THE LIST FOR JUNE 27, 2017:

  • Added a new ONG subsection (VPN clients)
  • Added Tunngle to (ONG) VPN Clients subsection
  • Added Google Chrome 50, Opera 37, and Firefox 53 as (UNS) browsers for Windows Vista. Referred users to @burd and @VistaLover's solution for getting the browsers to install and run in Vista.
  • Added a new ONG subsection (Audio editing software)
  • Added Audacity and Acoustica Mixcraft to (ONG) Audio editing software subsection
  • Updated information about Pale Moon under Vista (64-bit version of the browser requires an option to be enabled for proper video playback; both versions of the browser now require users to install SP2, Platform Update, and Platform Update Supplement for Windows Vista).
  • Removed HxD Hex Editor from the ONG section, as it has not been updated since 2009 and as such, is likely abandoned. Moved to Misc. System utilities section.
  • Added VideoPad Video Editor to (ONG) Video/photo editing software subsection
  • Separated screen capture software from screen recording software in (ONG) "Screen Recording & Capture software" subsection.
