Thank you Marcus for this update. 

Definitely, Firefox 40 is much appreciated and fixes all known bugs up to 
date.

Thank you Peter for your concern.

I did also notice other distribution went Firefox 39.0.3 several days ago. And 
I was also tempted to recommend adding Mozilla repositories for openSUSE in 
order to keep it up and protect our systems.

In the meantime, I tweaked a few Firefox features and switched to "Always Ask" 
for PDF preview on Application Preferences. 

However, trustful Marcus said perhaps Firefox 40 is released today and I will 
wait for it. :-)
