    Tor Browser 6.0.2 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

    Tor Browser 6.0.2 is a fixup release to address the most pressing issues we found after switching to Firefox 45.2.0esr.

    In particular, we resolved a possible crash bug visible e.g. on Faceboook or mega.nz and we fixed the broken PDF download button in the PDF reader.

    Note: In version 6.0 we started code signing the OS X bundle for Gatekeeper support. A side effect of this signature is that it makes it harder to compare the bundles we ship with the bundles produced using reproducible builds, therefore we plan to post instructions for removing the OS X code signing parts on our website soon. An other effect is that the incremental update will not be working for users who installed the previous version using the .dmg file, due to bug 19410. The internal updater should still work, though, doing a complete update.

    Here is the full changelog since 6.0.1:

    • All Platforms
      • Update Torbutton to
      • Bug 19401: Fix broken PDF download button
      • Bug 19411: Don't show update icon if a partial update failed
