Always good that they update quickly but I don’t like seeing that it can install software with no user interaction.

Firefox is one of my go to browsers. If Edge doesn’t load a page properly I try Firefox before deciding it’s a problem with the site itself.

Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

Version 125.0.2 - first offered to Release channel users on April 22, 2024
 
two small note
 
This is the more important one
 
Reverted the changes recently shipped in Firefox 125 that more proactively blocked downloads from potentially untrustworthy URLs. The changes caused unexpected problems with downloading files in some situations. We plan to fix and re-enable these protections in a future release. (Bug 1892069)
 
 
No issues to report after update on several W10 PC both home & Pro versions
 
Enjoy your day
