[German]The Mozilla foundation has released Firefox version 57 – aka Firefox Quantum – mid of November 2017. Now they are providing a bug fix and security update, shifting the browser to version 57.0.1.
Blog reader Leon informed me by mail (thanks for this). I’m using Firefox portable on my machine and let this browser check for updates. The new version has been offered to me.

- Various security fixes
- Google map crashes on OSX with Intel HD Graphics 3000
- Block injection of a client library associated with the RealPlayer Free player which is known to cause performance problems in Firefox. (Bug 1418535)
