New Alpha Release: Tor Browser 12.5a7 (Android, Windows, macOS, Linux)

by richard | June 9, 2023

Tor Browser 12.5a7 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory.

This release updates Firefox to 102.12.0esr, including bug fixes, stability improvements and important security updates. We also backported the Android-specific security updates from Firefox 114.

We would like to thank volunteer contributor cypherpunks1 for their fixes for tor-browser#33298, tor-browser#41792, and tor-browser#41785. If you would like to contribute, our issue tracker can be found here.

This should be the last alpha in the 12.5 series, so this release should be considered a release candidate for 12.5.0 which will be released in the coming weeks. If you find any issues, please report them on our gitlab or on the Tor Project forum.

Build-Signing Infrastructure Updates

We are once again able to code-sign our executable Windows installer, so new installations on the Windows platform no longer need to perform a build-to-build update from an older version. We apologize for all the inconvenience this caused.
