New
  • Dark mode in reader view expands so that windows are also dark on the controls, sidebars and toolbars.
  • Improved extension security and discovery:
    • New reporting feature in about:addons allows you to report security and performance issues with extensions and themes.
    • Redesigned extensions dashboard in about:addons provides easy access to information about your extensions, including data and settings access required by each extension.
    • Find high quality, secure extensions via the Recommended Extensions program in about:addons, which now displays user count and ratings for each extension. "Recommended” badges for these extensions also appear on AMO. More extensions will be added over time.
  • Cryptomining and fingerprinting protections are added to strict content blocking settings in Privacy & Security preferences.
  • WebRender will roll out to Windows 10 users with AMD graphics cards.
  • Windows Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) update download support, which allows Firefox update downloads to continue when Firefox is closed.
Fixed
  • Various security fixes
  • Local files can no longer access other files in the same directory.
Changed
  • Unified existing locales (bn-BD, bn-IN) under a single Bengali (bn) localization.
  • The following unmaintained translations have been removed: Assamese (as), English - South Africa (en-ZA), Maithili (mai), Malayalam (ml), Odia (or). Existing users will be migrated to the British English (en-GB) version.
  • When an HTTPS error caused by antivirus software is detected, Firefox will attempt to automatically fix it
  • Camera and microphone access now require an HTTPS connection.
  • The way non-default preferences are synced has changed. Please see this support article for more details
Enterprise

For all operating systems, we have a number of additional policies including:
  • New tab page configuration and disabling
  • Local file links
  • Download behavior
  • Search suggestions
  • Managed storage for using policies in Webextensions
  • Extension whitelisting and blacklisting by ID and website

Release Notes: Firefox Release Notes

New
  • Firefox now gives Windows hints to appropriately set content process priority levels, meaning more processor time spent on the tasks you're actively working on, and less processor time spent on things in the background (with the exception of video and audio playback).
  • To improve battery life on dual-graphics-card macOS machines, Firefox now tries more aggressively to switch back to the more power-efficient GPU for WebGL content when able. Firefox also works harder to avoid switching to the high-power GPU for one-off transient uses of WebGL.
  • Finder on macOS now displays download progress for files while they’re being downloaded.
  • Added support for the Web Authentication HmacSecret extension via Windows Hello on systems running the Windows 10 May 2019 update or newer.
Changed
  • As previously announced in the Plugin Roadmap for Firefox, the "Always Activate" option for Flash plugin content has been removed. Firefox will now always ask for user permission before activating Flash content on a website.
  • Firefox no longer loads userChrome.css or userContent.css by default. Users who wish to customize Firefox by using these files can set the toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets preference to true to restore this ability.

Installed it on 11/05/2015. No issues so far with my OS. v42.0.1 on Android is another story though. Crashes and stalls a lot.

Well, I must congratulate Mozilla Team, this version is way better than previous iterations, now HTML5 is more stable, yah, my VGA is still blacklisted, but you just tweak a pair of config values, and [email protected] videos play smoothly. In general, the browser feels less sluggish.

Well done Mozilla!

New versions and updates every day now? I just installed FF ESR 38.5.2 and now a new version
43.0.2. I know that is a complete new version install but still, why go through this almost daily lately?

Well that screwed it up pretty well so off to reinstall my previous version.

Now back to where I was with all addons I put in enabled just as I like.
Security be damned but I ain't achang'n again.

FF v43.0.2 installed on 12/23/15. No issues with anything, including plugins and addons. Even seems to load a bit quicker.

If everyone's system was configured the same then the same success or failure rate would be the same.
But still it is amazing how some software can accommodate so many varieties of hardware and
configurations of addons and such. I just don't have the patience to fix something that ain't broke.
