New Release: Tor Browser 8.5.3
This release includes an important security update in Firefox, a sandbox escape bug, which combined with additional vulnerabilities could result in executing arbitrary code on the user's computer.
Note: As part of our team is currently traveling to an event, we are unable to access our Android signing token, therefore the Android release is not yet available. We expect to be able to publish the Android release this weekend. In the meantime, Android users should use the
safest security levels. The security level on Android can be changed by going in the menu on the right of the URL bar and selecting
Update: The Android version is now available from the download page.
The full changelog since Tor Browser 8.5.2 is:
- All platforms
- Pick up fix for Mozilla's bug 1560192
> the only way to get to [NoScript options] is from the firefox addons menu, while everything else about noscript is customized from their toolbar icon directly.
Click the NoScript toolbar icon. Along the top edge are a bunch of large icons. Hover your mouse on the NoScript icon that has a white wrench on it, and the popup tooltip will say, "Options..." Click it.
Those buttons never disappeared for me. This is what the navigation bar looks like for me with no customizations:
[======= Page URL =======] [O] [S] [== Search ==] [NS] [HE]
O = Onion
S = Shield
NS = NoScript
HE = HTTPS Everywhere
In recent versions for Linux including 8.5.3 I see this:
[======= Page URL =======] [O] [S] [== Search ==] [NS] [HE][M]
M = Drop down menu
No NS or HE in view.
Are you using the Windows version?
It cannot be good that the versions apparently differ.
NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere are still present in the URL bar if you upgraded from an older version. They are not present if you did a new install with a recent version.
Seriously does it even matter how the button layout is? As long as you only have a single row of customization you should blend in yes?
