Tor Browser 5.0.5 is released
This release features important security updates to Firefox.
Additionally, we included updated versions for Tor (0.2.7.6), OpenSSL (1.0.1q), NoScript (2.7) and HTTPS-Everywhere (5.1.1). Moreover, we fixed an annoying bug in our circuit display (circuits weren't visible sometimes) and improved our fingerprinting defense against MIME type enumeration.
Tor Browser 5.0.5 comes with a banner supporting our donations campaign. The banner is visible on the about:tor page and features either Roger Dingledine, Laura Poitras or Cory Doctorow which is chosen randomly.
