Some of the Firefox users reported issues which did not allow them to use certain keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+C. This issue has now been fixed by the company and users will now be able to use the keyboard shortcuts on websites that use those keys.

Users also had reported issues with reloading of their proxy settings when configured to an automatic proxy configuration URL. This proxy settings issue has also been fixed by Mozilla in the latest release. The company says that user would need to enable the automatic proxy configuration URL after taking the latest release update.

Intermittent crashing issues have also been addressed by Mozilla which occurred when attempting to cancel a print job nearing completion. This issue occurred due to a bug in URL fragment which has now been fixed.
