[German]Mozilla’s developers had just released (January 20, 2020) version 72.0.2 and version and 68.4.2esr of the Firefox browser. It seems to be a maintenance update for the browser.

According to theRelease Notes, this is a maintenance update of the Firefox 72.0.2, which includes various stability fixes and the following bug fixes.

- Fixed a web compatibility issue with CSS Shadow Parts which shipped in Firefox 72(bug 1604989).
- Fixed inconsistent playback performance for fullscreen 1080p videos on some systems(bug 1608485)
According to the Release Notes , the maintenance update of Firefox 68.4.1esr contains only one bug fix: It fixes several problems when opening files with spaces in the path (bug 1601905, bug 1602726). The browser can be downloaded via FTP.
Currently I can’t test anything here, because the Firefox portable has been on strike since a few days under Windows 7 SP1. The browser window shown below appears. I can open new tabs or the burger menu, also when entering a term in the URL field I get suggestions. But with an entered URL nothing happens – the website is not retrieved. In the tab there is an animated dot that the browser requests something, but nothing happens. Before the update I couldn’t even display the settings page – now it works at least sporadically. The page about:support can be displayed. Starting in safe mode or with a new profile didn’t help either. All very strange.
