firefox-66.0.5 is now available to upgrade to.

There's not much mentioned on the release notes page other than more work was done to re-enable web extensions.

Delayed component initialization until after start up
Painting sooner during page load but less often
Suspending unused tabs

Firefox 67.0.4 is now in the main repository and propagating though the mirrors. All users should update, as the update addresses a couple of security exploits already in the wild.

Beginning with Firefox 68, whenever a MITM error is detected, Firefox will automatically turn on the “enterprise roots” preference and retry the connection. If it fixes the problem, then the “enterprise roots” preference will remain enabled (unless the user manually sets the “security.enterprise_roots.enabled” preference to false).

Time to change? Just installed vivaldi to see how it works.

Thanks for the update. Not sure what it all really means just yet though...

Looks like this issue won't affect us.
