    You forgot to mention it comes with massive memory improvements for those using adblock extensions

      Firefox 41 can be downloaded over at Mozilla.org.
      No you can't, because it hasn't been released yet (as usual).

        Multiple ES6 and ServiceWorker additions along with improvements in dev tools (especially the screen-shot of dom-element one) is very appreciated.

          They should just demote Firefox Hello to a extension so people can uninstall it instead of forcing it upon everyone.

          And focus on the core functionality.
          Such as support for HTML5 input types such as date, time, datetime. Also elements such as dialog and summary.

            IIRC, Firefox Hello is so integrated with the browser (instead of being an addon) because in order to get acceptable performance on lower-end PCs and FirefoxOS phones, it has to use some features not available to addons (or at least bypass some of the addon's API calls and such). I would, however, like the option of disabling it like I could any other extension.

              Download works fine for me now.

                So just more bloat, and no actual improvements? No fixes for the huge memory leakages, no fixes for their shitty JS engine stalling the whole browser whenever an app opens a connection? Instead profile pictures for a shitty program that has no business being in a FUCKING WEB BROWSER! Firefuck is seriously hosed...

                  Why does this irrelevant VOIP/AV program have to even be included in the browser in the first place? This pisses me off, it's a web browser, not a fucking computing environment.

                    because Mozilla and Google both want to push "cloud computing" basically instead of treating the web browser as well... a web browser.
