Hello,

Can Firefox security advisories be received via email or RSS?

If yes, how does one set this up? I looked for a relevant link on the page below, but couldn't find one.

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/

Thank you.

Firefox updates itself internally.

Press the Alt or F10 key to bring up the toolbar. Then Help > About Firefox will tell you what version have and check for updates.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/update-firefox-latest-version


. Whenever you get a message / popup that software / files need to be updated;

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE PROVIDED LINKS

While this may be a legitimate message, it could also be Malware or a Virus. Anytime you want or need to check for upgrades, go to the website of the True Owner of the program in question. For example, to check out Firefox, go to https://www.mozilla.org {web link}

You can report such a site at; Google Report Phishing Page {web link} which is the same when done while on site by going to Help > Report Web Forgery

Help us safeguard Mozilla’s trademarks by reporting misuse {web link}

For the last eight months, an epidemic of Fake Update Notices have been popping up all over the place. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/i-found-fake-firefox-update

Thank you for your reply.

Unfortunately the solution you offer does not help in my particular use case. The Linux distribution I wish to keep Firefox updated on uses the Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR). The Linux distribution provides an update for Firefox ESR through its package management system. There is a delay from when the ESR is released by Mozilla and when the Linux distribution packages it for release.

Firefox security advisories via email or RSS would allow me to be alerted that a security update is forthcoming, and to be aware of any security issues until the Firefox ESR package is updated by the Linux distribution.

Help > About Firefox shows the version number, but no option to update (I believe the update check is disabled by the Linux distribution since updates are managed by the Linux distribution package management system). I understand also that update notifications from within Firefox are disabled for the same reason.

I am currently testing a solution using a website service called "VisualPing.io". I use the URL of the Firefox security advisory page (link below) and hopefully it will email me when the page is updated.

I would appreciate it if you could pass on feedback to the website maintainers that a RSS or email notification functionality for the Firefox security advisory page would be helpful (or suggest to me where I can direct that feedback to the appropriate team/forum).

Thank you for your time.

The blog page does have a RSS feed available, but that obviously doesn't give you the advisories. You can consider to use an extension to monitor the security website for changes.

Thank you for the suggestions :)

I prefer a browser-independant solution (so I can receive updates when not using the browser).

I have set up "VisualPing.io" which checks the page every 12 hours for free. An alternative is changedetection.com

The major update dates for Firefox Releases are not a secret https://wiki.mozilla.org/RapidRelease/Calendar

The chemspill updates for security and or stability fixes on Release and ESR are not normally scheduled for because in best case scenario there is no minor updates.

Mozilla can't notify users about updates, when the user is using a Linux package manager for updates for Linux builds of Firefox. Best to ask about that in a Linux support fora specific to that distro.

It looks like most responders here aren't familiar with RSS, which may explain the low level of excitement about the responses.
