Currently, Mozilla is working to address a couple of issues it discovered in Firefox 76.0, the company has halted the update rollout or in other words, Firefox users who have automatic updates enabled won’t receive the version 76 and will receive 76.0.1 version eventually when Mozilla releases the minor update.
Recently Mozilla released Firefox 76.0 with improvements to Lockwise password manager and Picture-in-Picture feature, the company found the update has broken Amazon Assistant add-on where Home feed with deals, customer recommendations, search bar, and other features doesn’t appear and tabs in 32-bit Firefox version on Windows 7 crash due to Nvidia driver.
Firefox release manager Ryan VanderMeulen said in the Amazon Assistant add-on issue thread “Our plan at the moment is to begin rolling out a 76.0.1 point release with this fix included starting tomorrow with an aim to go to 100% rollout by Monday. Note that we are not currently automatically updating users to 76.0 and will skip to once automatic updates are re-enabled”.
Mozilla prepped the 76.0.1 release notes with the following information:
- Fixed a bug causing some add-ons such as Amazon Assistant to see multiple Onconnect events, impairing functionality. (bug 1635637)
- Fixed a crash on 32-bit Windows Systems with some Nvidia drivers installed ( bug 1635823)
Note: If you’re using Firefox 75, when you check for updates manually Firefox will still download 76 version, its the automatic updates that were disabled.
