This is a security and usability update.


    Updated the useragent for to work around their "Only with Firefox" discrimination preventing users from downloading themes, old versions of extensions, and other files with Pale Moon.
    Restricted web access to the moz-icon:// scheme that could potentially be abused to infringe the user's privacy.
    Prevented various location-based threats. DiD
    Fixed a potential vulnerability with plugins being redirected to different origins (CVE-2018-12364).
    Improved the security check for launching executable files (by association) on Windows from the browser. For users who have (most likely accidentally) granted a system-wide waiver for opening these kinds of files without being prompted, this permission has been reset.
    Fixed an issue with invalid qcms transforms (CVE-2018-12366).
    Fixed a buffer overflow using the computed size of canvas elements (CVE-2018-12359).
    Fixed a use-after-free when using focus() (CVE-2018-12360).
    Added some sanity checks on nsMozIconURI. DiD
    Fixed an issue in the case the preferences file in the profile would not be writable (e.g. temporary permission issues due to backup, virus scanning or similar external processes).
