Mozilla Firefox Version 44.0.2 Released With Critical Security Update

Mozilla sent Firefox Version 44.0.2 to the release channel.  The update includes one (1) critical security update. Firefox ESR was updated to version 38.6.1.

Mozilla has also announced the move to a variably scheduled six-to-eight week release cycle for Firefox.  Of course, the release schedule has already been interrupted with two updates to version 44 and one to ESR.
