RE: Updates 6/13/17 - Microsoft/Adobe Tuesday, CCleaner

Mozilla problems reportedly fixed with subsequent release of build 5.31.6105

===========


WARNING:   There are confirmed reports that version x.6104 of CCleaner is resetting Firefox and Thunderbird profiles/preferences.   Pirform is working on this issue.  Until fixed, their recommendation is to uncheck "Last Download Location" from under "Firefox" and/or "Thunderbird" in the Applications tabhttps://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=48428#entry284145

=================================================

CCleaner v5.31.6104 (13 Jun 2017)

- Improved Windows 10 Creators support
- Improved Firefox History cleaning
- Improved Chrome Cache and History cleaning
- Optimized Scheduling functionality (Professional only)
- Improved high-DPI support
- Minor GUI improvements
- Minor bug fixes

.
.
Either be careful to UNcheck any pre-checked offers for bundled programs/toolbars (unless you really want them)... or else, wait a few days until the SLIM build is released.

RE: Updates 6/13/17 - Microsoft/Adobe Tuesday, CCleaner

For those who have/use them:

Adobe AIR has been updated to 26.0.0.118 https://get.adobe.com/air/

Adobe Shockwave has been updated to 12.2.9.199 https://get.adobe.com/shockwave/ https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/shockwave/apsb17-18.html

===================

REMARK:   Over the past few months, I've often had problems downloading AIR (and shockwave).   In my case, it turns out that the downloads were being blocked by uBlock-Origin.   To get around this in FF/PM, go to Tools/Add-Ons/Extensions, scroll down to uBlock Origin, select Options/Show Dashboard/Whitelist, and add https://get.adobe.com/air/ ,and Apply Changes.

Firefox 54.0

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/54.0/releasenotes/

FF 54.0 first offered to Release channel users on June 13, 2017

Today's release is the first to run Firefox using multiple operating system processes for web page content, making Firefox faster and more stable than ever. Learn more about how multiple processes strike a “just right” balance between performance and memory use on the Mozilla Blog. Dive into the details (including performance benchmarks) on Medium.

We'd also like to extend a special thank you to all of the new Mozillians who contributed to this release of Firefox!

New

  • Simplified the download button and download status panel

  • Added support for multiple content processes (e10s-multi)

  • Added Burmese (my) locale

Changed

  • Moved the mobile bookmarks folder to the main bookmarks menu for easier access

RE: Updates 6/13/17 - Microsoft/Adobe Tuesday, CCleaner, Firefox

Was offered 14 updates today for Win 7 Pro+SP1, 32-bit system, including a Win 7 roll-up, some for Microsoft Office, one .Net, and an MSE definitions update.

Ran the updates and got this result:

Can somebody explain how updates were successfully installed but 14 updates were Not needed...??? The only one installed today is the MSE definitions update, but none of the others. And since I was offered 14 and 1 got installed, why doesn't it say "13 not needed?"

And here's the kicker... I reran WU again and it says "13 important updates available" and "1 optional update".

What the...???  emoticon.Angry.title

For what it's worth, Firefox claims its newest version is much faster (and less crash-prone) than before:
