    When can we expect to see Firefox 55?

    I just got the Windows update today(8/12) , so I'd guess next week.

    I received FF 55 today (08-12-2017) as an update in LM 18 so I would think it would be available in Ubuntu through the updates.

    There was a problem with Fx 55 and, as soon as Mozilla noticed, they yanked it. Now there's 55.0.1 and the release notes are here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo...1/releasenotes.

    The maintainers may just push out 55.0.1 rather than 55.0.

    Edit:
    Ooh! There's gossip that 55.0.1 may soon be replaced with 55.0.2!

    FF 55.0.1 is what I have.

    I've read here and there and everywhere is that FF 57 seems to be the target for some major changes to FF.

    This may also be some gossip guess we'll have to wait and see although as fast as FF seems to be pushing them out it may not be very long.
