Mozilla couple of weeks ago released a new update for its browser with version 58.0 for Firefox users on Windows. The update was rolled out with improvements and fixes for the Meltdown and Spectre security vulnerabilities.

But after taking the previous Firefox update, lot of users found an annoying bug introduced which lets loading pages in the browser to fail. The exact reason for the bug was not known. This bug effected lot of Windows users making it difficult to run the browser on Windows.

Having acknowledged the issue, today the company is rolling out a new update for its Firefox browser pushing it to new version 58.0.1 which brings the most awaited fix for the Page Loading bug introduced in the previous update.

The latest update fixes the Page Loading bug but the company has also made it a point to inform the Firefox users that running the browser over a Remote Desktop Connection will bring issues with the audio playback being disabled.

There could also be performance issues for users on some screen readers. The temporary workaround for the reported issues is to switch to Firefox ESR as the company is working on a permanent fix which would be rolling out to Firefox users in the upcoming update.

You can download the latest Firefox 58.0.1 update by clicking this link for Windows to be able to start using the browser once again.
