This release features important security updates to Firefox.

This new stable release is picking up security fixes for Firefox 68.3.0esr and updating our external extensions (NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere) to their latest versions.

Apart from backports for patches that already landed in alpha releases and fixing both an error in our circuit display and improved our letterboxing support Tor Browser 9.0.2 provides properly localized Android bundles again as well.
