Mozilla is redistributing a new version of Firefox. The developers of Mozilla have released an unscheduled maintenance update to version 66.0.3 for Firefox for Windows, macOS and Linux. With this update, Mozilla has not closed any security holes and added new features, but fixed bugs found in previous versions. The address bar on tablets under Windows 10 should now behave correctly. Additionally, performance issues with some HTML5 games have been resolved. Additionally, corrections have been made in some Microsoft and IBM cloud applications caused by the recent changes in the handling of keyboard events. The update was officially released, but can also be manually downloaded and installed.
You can manually download and install the update via the official website if you do not want to use Firefox’s internal update feature. I have listed the installation files in the post below.
The update with version 66.0.3 of the popular open source browser is available for download in several languages for Windows , Linux and Mac.
