They didn't make a lot of noise, but it wasn't necessary either: Mozilla has released Firefox 66.0.3, a maintenance release that does not include more than 5 small fixes. The v66.0.2 of the fox browser reached the official repositories by skipping v66.0.1, a version that included a couple of security vulnerabilities that they had found days before. It took a little longer, but the second maintenance update for Firefox 66 also included web compatibility. Apparently some had still been left in the inkwell.
Like v66.0.2, it looks like v66.0.3 has come directly to the official repositories, so anyone using Firefox on their Linux distribution can update right away. It is not urgent, unless you are experiencing compatibility problems in some web applications. In my case, v66.0.2 screwed up the links in the notes on iCloud.com, and the version released today hasn't gotten them working again.
What's New in Firefox 66.0.3
As we read in its Official Site, Firefox 66.0.3 includes these changes:
- The address bar on tablets running Windows 10 now behaves correctly.
- Performance improvements in some HTML5 games.
- Fixed a bug with Keypress events in IBM cloud applications.
- Fixed an issue with Keypress events in Microsoft cloud applications.
- Updated Baidu search plugin.
As you can see, it is not a very important release, but it only takes a bug fix in something we depend on for the update to be important to us. As data that I find interesting, the version available in the Snappy Store is the same, so it seems Mozilla is already taking its browser's Snap package a bit more seriously (let's knock wood).
We remember that Firefox 66 included news such as blocking autoplay of media content or the duplication of the use of processes. With a view to the future, Firefox 67 will include even more security and will allow us to install more than one instance of the famous browser.
Are you one of those who is going to take advantage of this minor Firefox update?
