Tor Browser 4.5.2 is released

A new release for the stable Tor Browser is available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

Cloudflare has changed his ugly behaviour blocking normal surfing with tor and is
working with most(?) exit relays?
That would be nice.

Have you changed the way the scrolling through pages with the arrow down key works? Ever since this update it seems using the arrow up and down keys to move up and down a webpage results in different behaviour. Whereas before it would scroll down evenly and smoothly, now it makes sudden jumps and seems to act more like a tab key! I dont think it is performing tab function though. It will work well when scrolling through text for example, but then will suddenly change.

It seems like the arrow keys might be causing the cursor to jump to sections of text as if you are in a word processing program rather than on a webpage! It is very annoying whatever it is and I think it should be changed back. It also caused trouble when trying to select a body of text using the shift key + the up or down arrow, suddenly deselecting a section of text that had already been selected and jumping to another section. Is this a bug or was this deliberate to try and achieve something?

I am trying to download the Tor browser and verify that the download is secure. Tor instructions read:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
To verify the signature of the package you downloaded, you will need to download the ".asc" file as well. Assuming you downloaded the package and its signature to your Desktop, run:

For Mac OS X users:
gpg --verify ~/Desktop/TorBrowser-4.5.3-osx64_en-US.dmg{.asc*,}
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The download does not include the .asc file and I cannot find it to download. Anyone know where it is?
