Firefox 57.0.1: a few bug fixes

It’s been two weeks since the release of Firefox 57, the first version of a new generation for the browser dubbed Quantum, and it’s clearly faster, cleaner, and lighter than its predecessors.

Firefox 57.0.1, released on November 29, addresses a few minor problems in 57.0. The release notes mention security fixes, but the linked Security Advisories page shows fixes that were already in Firefox 57.0. So there’s no particular urgency about this update, unless you’re affected by one of the issues the new version fixes.

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
