Firefox 52 (Rapid Release Cycle) was released on March, 7th, 2017 as a base for the next ESR release (ESR release is planned for early June after the qualification). The browser has:
- Removed support for Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI) plugins other than Flash. Silverlight, Java, Acrobat and the like are no longer supported.
- Added user warnings for non-secure HTTP pages with logins. Firefox now displays a “This connection is not secure” message when users click into the username and password fields on pages that don’t use HTTPS.
- Enhanced Sync to allow users to send and open tabs from one device to another (more details are in release notes).
It is available for download from here.
