Mozilla[German]Mozilla has surprisingly released Firefox 59.0.1 on March 16, 2018. Now (March 26, 2018) a maintenance update to version 59.0.2 has been released.


I have checked it on my Firefox portable for Windows via the Help. The update to 59.0.2 was offered immediately.

According to the release notes, version 59.0.2 fixes a couple of bugs:

  • Invalid page rendering with hardware acceleration enabled.
  • Windows 7 users with touch screens or certain 3rd party desktop applications which interact with Firefox through accessibility services may experience random browser crashes. Known 3rd party applicatioins with issues: StickyPassword, Windows 7 touch screen.
  • Browser keyboard shortcuts (eg copy Ctrl+C) don't work on sites that use those keys with resistFingerprinting enabled.
  • High CPU / memory churn caused by third-party software on some computers.
  • Users who have configured an "automatic proxy configuration URL" and want to reload their proxy settings from the URL will find the Reload button disabled in the Connection Settings dialog when they select Preferences/Options > Network Proxy > Settings…
  • URL Fragment Identifiers Break Service Worker Responses.
  • User's trying to cancel a print around the time it completes will continue to get intermittent crashes.
  • Broken getUserMedia (audio) on DragonFly, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD. Video chat apps either wouldn't work or be always muted.

Firefox is available for Linux, macOS and Windows (and for mobile devices) on Mozilla' Website. I'm using Firefox portable for Windows, offered here and need not to be installed. The portable version is also updateable.
