Firefox 44.0.1 and 44.0.2

Two stealth releases this week for Firefox. Version 44.0.1 was released on February 8 to fix a handful of minor bugs. Version 44.0.2 was released yesterday to fix a startup hanging problem and to address one security issue.

Most installations of Firefox will offer to update themselves automatically, but since 44.0.2 includes a security fix, you should check your version and trigger an update if you’re still running an older version.

If you’re wondering where Mozilla hid the ‘About’ box:

  1. Click the ‘hamburger’ button (three stacked horizontal lines) at the top right.
  2. Click the question mark button at the bottom of the menu.
  3. Click ‘About Firefox’.
