This release is updating Firefox to 45.5.0esr. Moreover, other components
got an update as well: Tor to, HTTPS-Everywhere to 5.2.7, and
OpenSSL to 1.0.1u.

We fixed a lot of usability bugs, some caused by Apple's macOS Sierra
(meek did not work anymore and windows could not be dragged either). We
moved directly to DuckDuckGo as our search engine avoiding a roundtrip
to Disconnect.me first. Finally, we added a donation banner shown in
some localized bundles starting on Nov 23 in order to point to our
end-of-the-year 2016 donation campaign.
