Security backports from ff57+ to Basilisk?

Unread post by Sun42 » 2017-12-02, 17:32

I'm evaluating the other ff legacy fork "Waterfox" - available only in memory-hungry x64, but enables e10s. The current ff56-based test build includes aa long list of security backports from ff57+ ... are these included in Basilisk, too? Or is the forked code base so different that it doesn't apply?

According to the Basilisk release notes ...
Fixed several security bugs: CVE-2017-7837, CVE-2017-7832, CVE-2017-7830, CVE-2017-7835, CVE-2017-7831, CVE-2017-7838, CVE-2017-7839, CVE-2017-7828, CVE-2017-7840, and several others from Firefox 57 that do not have a CVE designation.
... yes, FF57+ security issues are being ported over if applicable.

Thanks a lot, I missed that particular page. This maintenance makes Basilisk very attractive to use as a main web browser, doesn't it? Even though it's by no means the successor to Pale Moon :-)
