What’s in the latest Firefox update? Mozilla pitches add-ons, new enterprise group policies
Mozilla on Tuesday released Firefox 68 for Windows, macOS and Linux, packing more insights into the browser’s add-ons and adding a slew of new group policies that enterprise IT administrators can use to better manage the browser.
Mozilla’s security engineers also patched 21 vulnerabilities, two labeled “Critical” and four marked “High,” the organization’s top two threat ratings. “We presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code,” Mozilla reported in one advisory.
Firefox 68 can be downloaded from Mozilla’s site. Because it updates in the background, most users need only relaunch the browser to get the latest version. To manually update, pull up the menu under the three horizontal bars at the upper right, then click the help icon (the question mark within a circle). Choose “About Firefox.” The resulting page shows that the browser is either up to date or explains the refresh process.
