firefox-41.0.2 is now available for download.
Starting from version-41.0.1 and with future releases, you'll get a couple extra bookmarks for you favorite distro (nice job steveo!) :happy:

From softpedia
Just a few moments ago, Mozilla published a second hotfix release for its latest stable Mozilla Firefox 41.0 web browser patching a single vulnerability that could allow a malicious web page to access private data from other origins.

The Mozilla Firefox 41.0.2 update has been released earlier today, October 15, for GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows, and Mac OS X computer operating systems. According to Mozilla, Firefox 41.0.2 is here to fix a single issue, a high impact vulnerability in the fetch() API (Application Programming Interface), which was not capable of implementing the CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing) specification.
Check out the softpedia site for more.

I'm having some freezes pretty regularly. I go to Science Daily and try and middle-click to open in a new tab and it freezes. Sometimes I can right-click and open a new window. MX15_64 running KDE.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

I'm working on 43.0.3. Maybe it'll help.
Could you paste any link you're having problems with in this thread so I can check?

thanks

Using a middle-click this link always freezes FF:

A right-click and open in a New Window will also freeze FF.

Just tested this here, and 43.0.2 doesn't freeze on me on either occasion.

My Firefox 43.0.2 is a default upgrade from our CR from whatever ships with the original 64 bit .iso. (I do not have Flash installed. Using Shockwave Flash for FF.)
