Mozilla released Firefox 67.0.2 to the Stable channel on June 11, 2019. The new version of the Firefox web browser is already available and Firefox installations configured to check for updates automatically will pick up the new version eventually to download and install it.
Firefox users who don’t want to wait for that to happen can run a manual check for updates with a click on Menu > Help > Check for Updates.
The new version is also available as a direct download on the Mozilla website.
Firefox 67.0.2 is a bug fix release that addresses several issues in the browser. Here is the list of changes and improvements in the release:
- Manual proxy setups may have seen multiple proxy authentication dialogs with requests to authenticate in Firefox 67.
- Persaon’s MyCloud breaks if FIDO U2F is not Chrome’s implementation.
- Fixed an issue in Firefox for Linux and Mac OS X that caused Firefox to display a “profile is to recent” notification to the user if Safe Mode was used prior to the launch.
- Fixed problems associated with installing and managing different languages in Firefox on Linux distribution systems.
- Fixed a tag copying problem in the Firefox developer tools.
- The custom homepage did not work correctly for users who configured Firefox to clear data on shutdown.
- Fixed a performance regression for eclipse RAP based application.
- Fixed a crash that affected Mac OS X 10.15.
- Fixed an issue that prevented the starting of two downloads in parallel.
Firefox users affected by any of the issues may want to consider upgrading to Firefox 67.0.2 immediately to fix the issue that they experience.
