Firefox 43.01 available through Firefox but no release info
« on: December 18, 2015, 09:38:48 AM »
I just updated Firefox to to version 43.01 (released Dec 18, 2015) via the Help About menu. I was expecting 43.0  :huh:
It also appears that there is no release info about the changes for 43.01 on Mozilla at the moment.

Firefox 43.01
Release Notes don't exist, but only:
Firefox 43.0

Not even Softpedia has it.  They have the download.  But only notes for 43.0.

I had to use Opera to be able to click on ChangeLog.  For some reason they stick a Licensing tag on top of it.  Weird.

It is Firefox 43.0.1 not 43.01
US English release notes Firefox 43.0.1

Ah, MilesAhead beat me to it:
Just one item in 43.0.1 notes.  To do with MS signing blah blah

(Edit: although some may prefer yadda yadda)

Heh heh.  I don't remember such a small version number change.  But since it is one fix that may be the reason.  They might have waited for more stuff if it wasn't an MS compliance thing.

If I wasn't on a Laptop I might switch to SlimJet.  I occasionally use SlimJet portable.  But it seems to just pull down the battery enough even when plugged in that it sometimes kicks into charge mode.  The transformer on this Toshiba runs hot so I try to avoid pulling current.

I just updated SlimJet 5.0.17.0 to 6.0.8.0 and extensions and the rest seem to be ok.  I just extracted into the old folder.  I still don't use chrome sync so it's a plus if the browser will update similar to FF.

you should be whipped, all of you. How dare you talk about this update without telling that 43.0.1 will disable any addon not signed! I want to whip certain people right now. Whip! whip! whip!

I mentioned it earlier.  Anything prior to 44 you can still set
xpinstall.signatures.required to false
in about:config
