    Tor Browser 6.5a3 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.

    This release features important security updates to Firefox including the recently disclosed extension update vulnerability. All users should upgrade as soon as possible.

    This release bumps the versions of several of our components: Firefox to 45.4.0esr, Tor to and OpenSSL to 1.0.2h, HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.4, NoScript to Additionally we are adding Unix Domain Socket support on Linux and OSX, the about:tbupdate page giving information about the update has been improved, the referrer spoofing for .onion domains has been moved from Torbutton to C++ patches.

    Note: Due to bug 20185 Tor Browser on Linux and OS X will not work correctly if the path where it is installed is too long. As a workaround you may need to move it to a directory with a shorter path.
