Post by DragonHawk » Tue Sep 17, 2013 2:45 pm

As of Tuesday, 2013 September 17, Firefox 24.0.0 and 17.0.9 are released. Both are Extended Support Releases, so this means 17.x will be end-of-life'd relatively soon. Several security issues are addressed in these releases.
  • Downloads
  • Security Advisories
  • Release Notes (with highlights)
    • 17.0.9 (fixes only)
    • 18.0 (JavaScript compiler; browser-based chat/RTC)
    • 19.0 (PDF viewer)
    • 20.0 (per-window private browsing; new download UI)
    • 21.0 (more social networking; removed E4X; health/performance suggestions)
    • 22.0 (UI scaling on Windows; downloads in OS X dock)
    • 23.0 (mixed content blocking; logo change; DXVA2; JavaScript, image UI options removed; blink effect removed)
    • 24.0 (Revocation Lists removed; OS X scrollbar; tear-off chat windows)

I've been using this MSI for a few months now. First let me just thank the creator of this, its been a lifesaver deploying this via Group Policy instead of manually, and being able to manage settings via GP is also a lifesaver.

Having said that, do you have any time estimate on when we might see version 24ESR Community Edition? Been looking for the improvements in Javascript for quite sometime. Thanks.

We normally push updates to the latest Frontmotion version of Firefox (20 to 21, to 22, etc.) about every six weeks as you publish them.

Is 24 ESR the natural successor to 23? Or should I wait a few more days to see a non-ESR 24?

Thanks!

I was hoping to get 24 (nonESR) out last week, but the source drop on mozilla's ftp seems to be bad. I'll make the MSI for Mozilla Firefox, but I don't have a timeline for CE version. ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/relea ... ce.tar.bz2 is the file in question.
