Here is what is new in Firefox 67.0.2

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.

  • Persaon's MyCloud breaks if FIDO U2F is not Chrome's implementation.

  • 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.

    I’m still using 66.0.3. I use a policy to disable updates. You can just temporarily move the file out of the folder when you want to update FF.

    You create a policies.json file and store that file into the ‘C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\distribution’ folder. Create a ‘distribution’ folder in \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ folder and place that policies.json file into that folder with the following contents:

    {
    “policies”:
    {
    “DisableAppUpdate”: true
    }
    }

      The formatting got lost in my previous post, that policy probably won’t work like that. You can go here to find policies to use in FF.

        Amen to this. This saved my life! It was so annoying every day it prompts for updates with nag screens and ads.

        What are you talking about? I have never seen these “ads” or nag screens. Maybe you should visit the setting page instead of blocking updates which contain security updates. Just saying…

    Dave, The Firefox installer will remove the distribution folder when updating next time. Make sure to update via command line using the /RemoveDistributionDir=false switch.

      “Dave, The Firefox installer will remove the distribution folder when updating next time.”

      I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t let you do that, Dave. This browser’s mission is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.

      BeWarned, not a problem as I have to move the policies.json file out of the folder to allow the update proccess run when I want it to.

      I just recreate the folder and move the file back in when the update is finished.

    Some obvious things not mentioned, and which are extremely obnoxious, is that user settings are obliterated and can’t be reset:
    1.Although “ask where to download” is checked, files still go to the ‘Download’ folder and can’t be redirected,
    2. Same for “Restore Session” – even when it’s designated “false” in the ‘about:config’ settings, Firefox still returns to previous webpages after crashed sessions. This is especially aggravating when a site ties up a user’s device or tries to load a virus.
    Wiping out user settings during upgrades is bad enough, but not allowing them to be reset is even worse. It’s the kind of arrogant attitude and disrespect for users Apple is notorious for.

    Using that version and it constantly crashes. Worst version yet. Hope 68 fixes the problem. It freezes constantly. I shut down manually. Several times a day. Super clean computer with no other issues. About to switch back to Edge or Chrome.

      Did you try running Firefox in Safe Mode just to see if that resolves the issues?
