firefox-47.0 is now ready for download/upgrade to from main.
What's New:
Support for Google’s Widevine CDM on Windows and Mac OS X so streaming services like Amazon Video can switch from Silverlight to encrypted HTML5 video.
Enable VP9 video codec for users with fast machines
Embedded YouTube videos now play with HTML5 video if Flash is not installed.
View and search open tabs from your smartphone or another computer in a sidebar
Allow no-cache on back/forward navigations for https resources
Latgalu [ltg] locale added. Wikipedia tells us there are 164,500 daily speakers.

Security Issues Fixed:
Network Security Services (NSS) vulnerabilities
2016-60 Java applets bypass CSP protections
2016-59 Information disclosure of disabled plugins through CSS pseudo-classes
2016-58 Entering fullscreen and persistent pointerlock without user permission
2016-57 Incorrect icon displayed on permissions notifications
2016-56 Use-after-free when textures are used in WebGL operations after recycle pool destruction
2016-55 File overwrite and privilege escalation through Mozilla Windows updater
2016-54 Partial same-origin-policy through setting location.host through data URI
2016-53 Out-of-bounds write with WebGL shader
2016-52 Addressbar spoofing though the SELECT element
2016-51 Use-after-free deleting tables from a contenteditable document
2016-50 Buffer overflow parsing HTML5 fragments
2016-49 Miscellaneous memory safety hazards (rv:47.0 / rv:45.2)

What's Changed:
FUEL (Firefox User Extension Library) has been removed. Add-ons relying on it will stop working.
The browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand preference has been reset to its default value (true) to avoid e10s performance problems. Because faster is better!
The Firefox click-to-activate plugin whitelist has been removed.

This update is good for MEPIS 12 & MX14/15.
No new firefox-n for MEPIS-11.

Here also it is working well.
