Shortly after the release of Firefox 78, Mozilla is rolling a minor update to the browser. Numbered 78.0.1, the update delivers a fix to the browser to resolve an issue with visibility of the installed search engines.
The change log states:
The upgrade package size is 7Mb.
My Firefox instance was affected by that bug. However, installing the 78.0.1 didn't automatically fix it. I had to Refresh Firefox after installing it.
The updated Firefox 78.0.1 ESR is also available.
The browser is now available for download from its official web site.
I have reviewed all the changes in Firefox 78 HERE.

I use Firefox since I use the internet. So I’m no hater. But it now happens frequently that they release a crucial fix immediately after rolling out the final. Why did no one notice a bug like this? They need to improve their beta testing, and/or increase the time for development. Nowadays I never update after a new version comes out. I wait a few days and go straight to the apparently mandatory 0.1 build. I guess Mozilla is too busy with “protecting” people from a deeply hostily internet by deciding which news is “fake”, and by partnering with pro-censorship groups.
Once again Mozilla removes a beloved feature though no one asked. (To many the disappearance of “one click” was a blessing)
