New Release: Tor Browser 11.0.3

by boklm | December 20, 2021

Tor Browser 11.0.3 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory

This release updates Firefox to 91.4.1esr and picks up a number of bug fixes. In particular, this release should fix various extension related and crash issues Windows users were experiencing. Additionally, Linux users especially on Ubuntu and Fedora systems were reporting fonts not properly rendering, which should be solved by this release.

We used the opportunity to upgrade various components to their respective latest versions as well: Tor to 0.4.6.9, OpenSSL to 1.1.1m, and snowflake for enhanced censorship resistance.

Full changelog

Hi there!
So 11.03 is newer than alpha 11.5a1? Should I update or wait?
Thanks

Yes and yes. :slight_smile: (note: updates for macOS are currently disabled).

Thanks! There’s no automatic update from older alpha to newer stable so I need to download an instalaller and do it manually, I guess?

Yes, alpha only gets updated to newer alpha releases

Hi @paero123, as @HackerNCoder has noted Alphas will only update to a newer Alpha when it becomes available.

Tor Browser Alpha is a separate release channel meant only to find bugs and test new features. To return to the stable release channel for everyday browsing, you should re-download Tor Browser for desktop from the download page and replace the Alpha you’re currently running with it.

Yes, I thought so.
Frankly speaking I just used alpha because of that stable version’s issue with uBlock and other addons switch off.

A post was split to a new topic: Why only tor-win32 binary is listed on the Download page?

Now that Tor Browser 11.0.4 for desktop is rolling out, I’m closing this thread. Please feel free to add your feedback to the new thread instead. Thanks everyone!
