With social integration and more.
Prior to dropping the 64 bit support, Mozilla has also released the final build of the Firefox 17 web browser.
Focusing on the social aspect, the following build includes a revised Social API and support for Facebook Messenger (see screenshot below). In addition to that, Firefox 17 now has a click to play blocklist, which will protect unsuspecting consumers from running the vulnerable plugin version.
