      Firefox Version 123.0 released today.

      So for those who don’t scroll right in the code block above, release dates for versions 124, 125, 126, and 127
      are 124: March 19, 125: April 16, 126: May 14, 127: June 11.

      Wait a few days and we’ll undoubtedly see a newer version of Librewolf, which provides additional privacy
      measures; read their documentation for the specific privacy measures added by Librewolf.

          As noted above, Firefox 125 released today.

          https://whattrainisitnow.com/ covers Firefox releases and that URL exclaims: Firefox 125 shipped today!

          This means, for those who PREFER Librewolf, we will be seeing a 125.0* version in a few days.

              Here’s a link if you want to get regular updates of LibreWolf automatically available:

              https://librewolf.net/installation/debian/

              One more piece on LibreWolf – those of you who place a particularly high emphasis on privacy and protection will appreciate this:

              “What is LibreWolf?
              This project is a custom and independent version of Firefox, with the primary goals of privacy, security and user freedom.

              LibreWolf is designed to increase protection against tracking and fingerprinting techniques, while also including a few security improvements. This is achieved through our privacy and security oriented settings and patches. LibreWolf also aims to remove all the telemetry, data collection and annoyances, as well as disabling anti-freedom features like DRM.”

              https://librewolf.net/docs/faq/

              “LibreWolf is always based on the latest version of Firefox. Updates usually come within three days from each upstream stable release, at times even the same day. Unless problems arise, we always try to release often and in a timely manner.”
