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.

two small note
 
This is the more important one

No issues to report after update on several W10 PC both home & Pro versions

Version 127.0.1 - first offered to Release channel users on June 19, 2024
 
BUG fixes & known issues:
 

Fixed

    Fixed an issue where users with a primary password set on their profile could lose their previous session of tabs upon upgrading if they dismissed the primary password prompt (bug 1901899).

    Fixed an issue where Linux users with accessibility.monoaudio.enable set to true were experiencing slow audio speeds (bug 1900972).

    Fixed an issue where, in some circumstances, the Firefox installer on Windows failed to complete the installation (bug 1896868).

    Fixed an issue causing Firefox to incorrectly reject cookies for certain websites (bug 1901325).
     

    Unresolved


      On Windows, the Private Window icon is displayed in the taskbar even though browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled is set to false. This will be fixed in the next release (bug 1901840).

      Under certain conditions, YouTube playback may experience stalling issues. We are actively working on a fix for this problem (bug 1878510).

I've been having a few issues with FF recently with tabs crashing for no apparent reason. Also a few sites that worked in FF until recently now just spit up blank pages, I have to go to MS Edge to view them. :(
