Tor Browser 9.0.6 is now available from the Tor Browser download page and also from our distribution directory.

This release features important security updates to Firefox.

This release updates Firefox to 68.6.0esr and NoScript to 11.0.15.

Note: We are aware of a bug that allows javascript execution on the Safest security level (in some situations). We are working on a fix for this. If you require that javascript is blocked, then you may completely disable it by:

  • Open about:config
  • Search for: javascript.enabled
  • If the “Value” column says “false”, then javascript is already disabled.
  • If the “Value” column says “true”, then either right-click and select “Toggle” such that it is now disabled or double-click on the row and it will be disabled.

The full changelog since Tor Browser 9.0.5 is:

  • All Platforms
    • Update Firefox to 68.6.0esr
    • Bump NoScript to 11.0.15
      • Bug 33430: Disable downloadable fonts on Safest security level
  • Build System
    • Windows
      • Bug 33535: Patch openssl to use SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH for copyright year
