what is the current version of firefox?

Posted

I know how to check the current version I am using but I would like to know what Mozilla has released for the current version release of Firefox. I used the About Firefox to obtain what version I am using and Mozilla says its Version 36.0.4 . which states Firefox is up to date. Yesterday, I downloaded Version 37.0 from Mozillas' web site and today it is not available. What is going on?

Hi BillJonesSmith, Firefox 37 is the latest version of the browser. Automatic updates from prior versions got disabled for the moment though while Mozilla is investigating a start-up crash in the new version that could occur in some situations with particular third party software...

Note that this is only a problem on Windows and other platforms like Mac and Linux aren't affected AFAIK.

I just updated Firefox today (4/4/15) to 37.0.1 and Firefox can no longer access any Mozilla website. The https://www.mozilla.org.... site goes immediately to an error webpage "This Connection is Untrusted", which reports that: www.mozilla.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. (Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer) I can Add an exception for Mozilla.org, but each time I run Firefox and try to access a Mozilla website, I have to go through the same steps. I do not have any problem accessing Mozilla.org on my other browsers (Chrome 41 and IE 11).
