- Various security fixes.

Firefox now supports the math-style and math-depth CSS properties and the font-size: math value.
You can find enterprise-specific bug fixes and changes in the Firefox for Enterprise 117 Release Notes.
Like most mainstream browsers, Firefox updates itself automatically in the background. You can also force-update it by heading to Menu > Help > About Firefox. Alternatively, download the installer from the official website.
