Today, April 11, 2016, Mozilla has announced the general availability of the second point release of the Mozilla Firefox 45.0 web browser for all supported platforms, including GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.
As expected, Mozilla Firefox 45.0.2 is a small maintenance release that resolves a total of five issues discovered since last month first point release, which brought more bug fixes and improvements than expected.
According to the release notes, it looks like Mozilla patches an issue that affected the cookie header due to blocking of third-party cookies, as well as a crash that occurred when attempting to playback videos using the Media Source Extension.
Mozilla Firefox 45.0.2 brings better web compatibility by patching a regression affecting the srcset attribute of the image tag, as well as copy/paste improvements for old versions of various Mozilla apps using the Gecko engine, such as Thunderbird.
Lastly, a regression that affected certain uploads was patched as well. Below we’ve attached the official changelog for Mozilla Firefox 45.0.2, which you can download right now for GNU/Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X operating systems via our website.
In related news, the development cycle of the Mozilla Firefox 46.0 web browser continues with a ninth Beta build released to public beta testers this past weekend. From the looks of if, Mozilla Firefox 46.0 will be promoted to the stable channels on April 26, 2016.
