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.

There are also changed media playback settings; Youtube now uses HTML 5 video by default for Firefox >= 40, and the new settings allow for playback of their videos at higher than 360p resolution if available. Some new audio formats may now play by default in HTML 5, too.
