        I’m getting an update notice to update to FF 67.0.1.  I usually hold off for awhile before getting these updates.  While I’m waiting I search for information about the update and what it does.  Well, in this case Mozilla is reporting big changes in this update, some sound good, others…. I don’t know.  Any comments good or bad are very welcome.  Thanks.

        Just installed FF 67.0.1 and not seeing any big changes, maybe it’s because I haven’t any need for add-ons just yet.

        i got 67.0 as a security patch March 21st and it seems to run like all the previous 60 series versions. running it on ubuntu 16, 18 and 19. i turned on the new “cryptominer,” and “fingerprinter,” blockers hopefully they are working. no problems with it and i use microfix’s AKB3000003 on askwoody for additional security settings, too. there is another list of changes on wikipedia:

        I allowed FF to update to 67.0.1 three days ago. So far so good. The latest update wasn’t a MAJOR change.

        Okay thanks, I installed the update yesterday and all seems to be okay. No major changes that I can see. I must have read more into all the descriptions in the places linked above.

        Well, 4 days later and we get another one – 67.0.2.  Wow.  I read the information about it and it sounded good so I let it install.  Things seem okay at present here.

        Same here, Version 67.0.2 seems to be fine.
