This release features important security updates to Firefox.
This release updates Firefox to version 52.5.0esr and Tor to version version 0.3.1.8, the second stable release in the 0.3.1 series. In addition to that we updated the HTTPS Everywhere and NoScript extensions we ship. For Windows users we backported patches from the alpha series that update the msvcr100.dll runtime library we include and which should make Tor Browser more robust against crashes due to misbehvaing third party software.
