Mozilla Firefox 95.0.2 was released on December 19, 2021; it fixes a single crash issue that affects certain AMD processors on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 devices.
The new version of the Firefox web browser comes just a few days after the release of Firefox 95.0.1, and about two weeks after the release of the last major version release of 2021, Firefox 95.0.
Firefox 95.0.2 is already available. Installations should receive the update of the browser automatically, provided that automatic updates have not been turned off. Affected users, those on AMD devices on which Firefox crashed frequently recently, may want to run the update as soon as possible to address the issue.
Select Firefox Menu > Help > About Firefox to display the installed version, and run a check for updates. The new version should be picked up and installed automatically at this point.
The official Firefox 95.0.2 release notes list a single fix:
Addresses frequent crashes experienced by users with certain AMD CPUs running on Windows 7, 8, and 8.1
The issue appears to affect Firefox running on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 systems only. Only systems with AMD CPUs are affected, but the release notes don’t provide more details on the matter.
Firefox ESR, the Extended Support Release version of the browser, is not affected by the issue. The last version, Firefox ESR 91.4.1, is not changed therefore. It was released just a few days ago alongside Firefox 95.0.1 to address a connection issue that affected several Microsoft domains and two crashes in the Linux and Windows version of the web browser respectively.
Firefox 95.0 was released on December 7, 2021. It marked the availability of Firefox in the Microsoft Store, and introduced a number of improvements and fixes besides that.
Interested Firefox users can check out the official release notes on the Mozilla website.
