Basilisk has been updated to v2019.03.08

This is a development and security release.
  • Changed location to allow an empty string set on search to clear URL parameters.
  • Removed WebExtension support from the platform.
  • Implemented the "origin-clean" algorithm for ImageBitmap.
  • Switched to using C++11 thread-safe statics in the entire application.
  • Fixed several Skia security vulnerabilities (CVE-2018-18356, CVE-2018-18335 and CVE-2019-5785).
  • Fixed a crash due to frames in some uncommon situations.
  • Aligned textarea placeholder strings with the spec (preserve line breaks).
  • Removed the Windows maintenance service code.
  • Improved http basic auth DOS protection heuristics.
  • Fixed arrows on some toolkit controls.
  • Added a Netflix site-specific override to fix Silverlight playback.
Note: EME DRM is currently not functional in Basilisk on new profiles and new installations that have not played DRM-protected media before. We are working on a fix.
