Mozilla sent Firefox Version 56.0 to the release channel today.  The  update includes two (2) Critical, six (6) High, seven (7) Moderate and  two (2) Low security updates.  Firefox  ESR was updated to version  52.4.0.

Important Notes:

  • Although version 56 is scheduled to "silently and forcibly  auto-upgrade" users running the 32-bit version  of Firefox on 64-bit  computers with more than 2GB of RAM to the 64-bit  version, it was not updated to the 64-bit version on my machine.
  • Users of  Lenovo's "OneKey Theater" software for IdeaPad laptops and users running Firefox for Windows over a Remote Desktop  Connection (RDP) are advised to check the unresolved issues in the Release Notes.
  • Version 56 makes Firefox Screenshots and Send Tabs available to all users.
  • See the following regarding add-ons starting in Firefox 57:  Firefox add-on technology is modernizing
