This release features important security updates to Firefox.
This release bumps the versions of several of our components, e.g.: Firefox to 38.7.0esr, Tor to 0.2.8.1-alpha, OpenSSL to 1.0.1s, NoScript to 18.104.22.168 and HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.1.4.
Additionally, we fixed long-standing bugs in our Tor circuit display and window resizing code, and improved the usability of our font fingerprinting defense further.
