Tor Browser 5.5.1 is released
Most notably, this release features fixes for regressions caused by our font fingerprinting defense: chinese users should have a functional Tor Browser again and emoji support is restored on OS X and Linux systems (we are still working on a fix for Windows).
Moreover, we fixed an oversight in one of our patches which broke some websites depending heavily on iframes.
The full changelog since 5.5 is:
Tor Browser 5.5.1 -- February 5 2016
Dude, F11 in menu is the only full screen option for any app. Stop trying to maximize - it's not secure. And did you see your bug fixed in this release to write that?
tbb in windows
I have accidentally, out of habit, clicked the maximize button.
in tbb 4.x, that window became huge.
in recent 5.x, the window either maximizes or increases to a size nearly equal to display size. i then click restore button which restores tbb window size as restore normally does.
if relevant, i usually have multiple tabs open, and only one tbb window open.
and, thanks to node operators and tor developers.
I have this issue with 5.5.1 and it IS a problem. I use Tor to enhance my security but not at the expense of convenience. Moreover, when connecting to my very own hidden service, I couldn't care less about leaking the resolution. But the fact that I can't stretch the window is really annoying :-)
