Mozilla has recently released a new update to Firefox browser, but just as expected, the focus has been entirely on fixing bugs and improving performance.

Firefox 62 was officially published earlier this month, and since then, new versions have been all about resolving the issues that users discovered in the browser.

You can download Mozilla Firefox 62.0.2 for Windows, Linux, and macOS from Softpedia using these links (or you can just rely on the built-in update engine if the browser is already installed on the system).
