Mozilla Firefox 17.0 Stable out later today

Filed under
Moz/FF

Mozilla is currently preparing the release of Firefox 17.0 stable which will be later out today if no last minute issues emerge that delay the roll out of the update to all users of the stable version of the browser. We look at what’s new in Firefox 17 back when the Aurora channel got updated to the version, and the majority of features mentioned in that initial article made their way into the stable version as well.

There is no stable release change log out there right now, but the beta release notes usually provide use with the information needed. The page lists the following additions, changes and fixes to Firefox 17.0:
