This release features important security updates [3] to Firefox.

A lot of Tor Browser components have been updated in this release. Apart
from the usual Firefox update (to 52.3.0esr) we include a new Tor stable
release ( + an updated HTTPS-Everywhere (5.2.21) and NoScript

In this new release we continue to fix regressions that happened due to
the transition to Firefox 52. Most notably, we avoid the scary warnings
popping up when entering passwords on .onion sites without a TLS
certificate (bug 21321 [4]). Handling of our default start page (about:tor)
has improved, too, so that using the searchbox on it is working again
and it does no longer need enhanced privileges in order to function.
