    Tor Browser 5.5.3 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

    This release features important security updates to Firefox.

    This release bumps the versions of several of our external components: Firefox to 38.7.0esr, OpenSSL to 1.0.1s, NoScript to and HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.1.4.

    Additionally, we fixed long-standing bugs in our Tor circuit display and window resizing code, and improved the usability of our font fingerprinting defense further.
