Mozilla released Firefox 60.0.1 to the stable channel of the Firefox web browser on May 16, 2018. The new Firefox version is a bug fix release which addresses several issues in the web browser.
Mozilla released Firefox 60 last week and listed a single issue in the release notes. Firefox would display sponsored stories the next time a user would open the New Tab page after disabling Sponsored Stories in the browser.
Firefox 60.0.1 fixes that issue and several other issues discovered after the release of Firefox 60.0.
Firefox 60.0.1 is available through the web browser's automatic updates functionality and as a separate download from Mozilla. Firefox users who are on the stable channel of the browser may select Menu > Help > About Firefox to run a manual check for updates.
Firefox will download the new version to the local system then and install it to update it. A restart of the web browser is required to complete the update installation.
You can download Firefox from Mozilla directly as well to install the browser anew or update an existing installation.
Firefox 60.0.1 fixes the following issues:
Mozilla lists a single change besides the fixes on the official release notes page. The organization notes in the Firefox 60.0.1 release notes that WebVR has been disabled on mac OS X. Mozilla did enable the API in Firefox 60.0.
