LibreWolf v113.0.1-1 released


To receive automatic updates, you may refer to the unofficial LibreWolf-WinUpdaterthat employs a scheduled task to accomplish the same. Alternatively, if your aim is solely to receive notifications upon new version releases, the unofficial LibreWolf Updater extension is a suitable option.

We are currently testing distribution on Windows via the Microsoft Store. This has the main advantage that updates are provided automatically. You can read more about the ongoing process in this issue and download LibreWolf from the Microsoft Store here:
Get it from Microsoft
LibreWolf Browser

Installing from the MS Store was very quick and passes SAC verification.

so I went to MS Store, and it has a link "Get..." but did not click it as unsure does it download the setup.exe to your pc, or does it immediately start to install it. I am curious as I wanted to compare sha256 with the setup.exe download from librewolf dot net site.

PS one person post at MS Store
While yes, it has automatic updates I would say don't use the Microsoft store version, I tried to go to my profiles (about:profiles) and access the root directory, but sadly I forgot that all apps/games on the Microsoft store are "protected" when its really just an annoyance. TL;DR you can not modify any files in LibreWolf when you get it from here. Get their GitLab/Website version instead, Amazing browser regardless (one of the best in my opinion) just limited by the platform.

No

No, it opens the Store App in Windows and you may select to install.

Who would need to? it's set up OOTB and you can adjust your preferred settings, and then configure µBO as you like.
just limited by the platform.
Only from your perspective. As a Store app it has appcontainer potection and is more secure by default, plus it's signed so it actually has advantages.
