[German]Mozilla developers have released version 95.0.1 with some new features and 91.4.1esr of the Firefox browser with a fix on December 16, 2021. The new browsers also correct an access conflict to Microsoft pages that occurred the days.
My Firefox 95.0.0 Portable offered me an update to version 95.0.1 after I launched an update search.
According to the release notes Firefox version 95.0.1 brings some as well as bug fixes, but no security fixes. Here's a rough overview of the bug fixes in the new Firefox, which the developers describe as:
- MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_OCSP_RESPONSE_FOR_CERT_MISSING error messages when trying to connect to various microsoft.com domains (bug 1745600), I covered this bug in the blog post Firefox cannot access Microsoft.com … (Dec 12, 2021).
- Fix for a WebRender crash on some Linux/X11 systems (bug 1741956).
- Fix for a frequent crash when shutting down Windows (bug 1738984)
- Fix web page contrast problems for some Linux users who have dark mode set at the operating system level (bug 1740518)
For Windows users, the MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_OCSP_RESPONSE_FOR_CERT_MISSING bug and Windows shutdown crashes are certainly relevant.
An update of Firefox 91.4.0esr with one year of long-term support with the bug fix for the MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_OCSP_RESPONSE_FOR_CERT_MISSING bug was also provided in each case.
The new Firefox and the ESR variants can be downloaded from this web page for various platforms (the variant is to be selected via the displayed list boxes).
