    Tor Browser 6.0.6 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 is updating Firefox to 45.5.0esr. Moreover, other components got an update as well: Tor to, HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.7, and OpenSSL to 1.0.1u.

    We fixed a lot of usability bugs, some caused by Apple's macOS Sierra (meek did not work anymore and windows could not be dragged either). We moved directly to DuckDuckGo as our search engine avoiding a roundtrip to first. Finally, we added a donation banner shown in some localized bundled starting on Nov 23 in order to point to our end-of-the-year 2016 donation campaign.
