This release updates firefox to 45.3.0esr. Additionally, it bumps
NoScript to, HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.1, disables asmjs,
removes meek-google and contains a few other bug fixes.

Note: Due to bug 19410 [4], on OSX the incremental update will not be

The internal updater should still work, though, doing a complete update.
