New Release: Tor Browser 10.5a1

Tor Browser 10.5a1 is now available from the Tor Browser Alpha download page and also from our distribution directory.

Note: This is an alpha release, an experimental version for users who want to help us test new features. For everyone else, we recommend downloading the latest stable release instead.

Tor Browser 10.5a1 ships with Firefox 78.3.0esr, updates NoScript to 11.0.44, and Tor to 0.4.4.5.

Note: Tor Browser 10.5 does not support CentOS 6.

Note: Now Javascript on the Safest security level is governed by NoScript again. It was set as false when on Safest in 9.5a9. The javascript.enabled preference was reset to true for everyone using Safest and you must re-set it as false if that is your preference.

Note: After investigating the error seen by Windows users while playing videos on Youtube, a user helped us identify the cause. Until this is fixed in an upcoming release, a workaround is setting media.rdd-opus.enabled as false in about:config.

The full changelog since Tor Browser 10.0a7 is:

  • Windows + OS X + Linux
    • Update Firefox to 78.3.0esr
    • Update Tor to 0.4.4.5

Looks like you can't write a comment when having the security slider on safest... why is the site using javascript anyways? There is a new version of OpenSSL that you could update in the next Tor alpha release and maybe for the android version too.

Suggestion: To avoid possible confusion, the first sentence in the text body of this blog notice should read "Tor Browser 10.5a1 is now available from the Tor Browser Alpha download page and also from our distribution directory," instead of "Tor Browser 10.1a1 is now available from the Tor Browser Alpha download page and also from our distribution directory."
