ALERTE - Fuite d’informations des processeurs (04.01.18)
viewtopic.php?f=173&t=32763 (hier soir)

Remarque :
Les problèmes viennent du hardware lui-même (conception des processeurs et exécution d'instructions par anticipation, malheureusement en ignorant certains contrôles, afin d'exploiter les temps morts).
Les correctifs sont annoncés pour le 9 janvier et entraînerons des contrôles supplémentaires dans les séquences d'exécution des instructions, dans les applications, et, autant que faire se peut, l'empêchement de l'exécution d'instructions par anticipation alors que l'on ne sait même pas si elles ont les droits (privilèges) d'être exécutées et leurs données manipulées se trouver dans les zones mémoires atteignables par d'autres codes, dont ceux exploitant ces deux failles de sécurité : Meltdown and Spectre.
Avant que les processeurs eux-mêmes, et leurs microcodes, ne soient modifiés, et ne se retrouve dans de nouveaux modèles d'ordinateurs, les correctifs apportés le 9 janvier 2018, au niveau des systèmes d'exploitation et des BIOS, RALENTIRONT l'efficience de nos ordinateurs.

Firefox passe en 58.0 (32 et 64 bits)

Journal des changements
Version 58.0, first offered to Release channel users on January 23, 2018

With this release, we’re building on the great foundation provided by our all-new Firefox Quantum browser. We're optimizing the performance gains we released in 57 by improving the way we render graphics and cache JavaScript. We also made functional and privacy improvements to Firefox Screenshots. On Firefox for Android, we’ve added support for Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) so you can add websites to your home screen and use them like native apps.

Thank you to all of the new Mozillians who contributed to this release of Firefox!


New

Performance improvements, including:
Rendering graphics for Windows users by using Off-Main-Thread Painting (OMTP)
Loading pages faster by changing how Firefox caches and retrieves JavaScript

Improvements to Firefox Screenshots:
Copy and paste screenshots directly to your clipboard
Firefox Screenshots now works in Private Browsing mode

Added Nepali (ne-NP) locale

In case you missed it—57 Release privacy and performance feature:
Users can enable Tracking Protection at all times. Learn how to turn Tracking Protection on.


Fixed

Fonts installed in non-standard directories will no longer appear blank for Linux users

Various security fixes


Changed

User profiles created in Firefox 58 (and in future releases) are not supported in previous versions of Firefox. Users who downgrade to a previous version should create a new profile for that version. Learn about alternatives to downgrading on our support site.

Added a warning to alert users and site owners of planned security changes to sites affected by the gradual distrust plan for the Symantec certificate authority

Developer

Implemented the PerformanceNavigationTiming API

Added PerformanceResourceTiming.workerStart so sites can measure service worker startup time

Firefox passe en version 62.0

Journal des changements

New
Firefox Home (the default New Tab) now allows users to display up to 4 rows of top sites, Pocket stories, and highlights

“Reopen in Container” tab menu option appears for users with Containers that lets them choose to reopen a tab in a different container

In advance of removing all trust for Symantec-issued certificates in Firefox 63, a preference was added that allows users to distrust certificates issued by Symantec. To use this preference, go to about:config in the address bar and set the preference "security.pki.distrust_ca_policy" to 2.

Added FreeBSD support for WebAuthn

Improved graphics rendering for Windows users without accelerated hardware using Parallel-Off-Main-Thread Painting

Support for CSS Shapes, allowing for richer web page layouts. This goes hand in hand with a brand new Shape Path Editor in the CSS inspector.

CSS Variable Fonts (OpenType Font Variations) support, which makes it possible to create beautiful typography with a single font file

Updates for enterprise environments:
AutoConfig is sandboxed to the documented API by default. You
can disable the sandbox by setting the preference
general.config.sandbox_enabled to false. Our long term plan is to
remove the ability to turn off the sandboxing. If you need to
continue to use more complex AutoConfig scripts, you will need to use
Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR).

Added Canadian English (en-CA) locale

Fixed

Various security fixes

Changed

Removed the description field for bookmarks. Users who have stored descriptions using the field may wish to export these descriptions as html or json files, as they will be removed in a future release.

Dark theme is automatically enabled in macOS 10.14 dark mode

Changed the default setting to Enforce (3) for the security.pki.name_matching_mode preference

Adobe Flash applets now run in a more secure mode using process sandboxing on macOS. Learn how this may affect features here.

Users disconnecting from Sync are now offered the option to wipe their Firefox profile data (including bookmarks, passwords, history, cookies, and site data) from their desktop computer

Changed how WebRTC handles screen sharing: When screen-sharing a window, the window will be brought to front

Developer

Three-pane Inspector in Developer Tools separates the rules into its own panel

Changes affecting developers
