Mozilla has uploaded the final Firefox 50.0 binaries to their servers for all supported operating systems.

Firefox 50 isn't the biggest release but does bring improved printing in the Reader Mode, built-in Emoji support for operating systems without native Emoji fonts (including Linux), SPDY 3.1 is now disabled by default, various JavaScript API improvements, EXT_shader_texture_lod support for WebGL, and a range of other developer changes.

Grab Firefox 50.0 from Mozilla's FTP server or soon from most Linux distribution repositories.
