This list only reflects stuff that I find interesting:

Mail:

# A common application hang with SSL-encrypted SMTP connections has been fixed.

# Printing of the attachments list is now supported.

# Closing a window with multiple tabs now prompts the user with a confirmation dialog (which can be disabled for future close operations).

# It is now possible to jump from the JavaScript console to the relevant line in the View Source Window.

# Mozilla's view source now displays line and column numbers in the status bar.

# A quicksearch filter has been implemented for about:config.

# Mozilla should no longer cause GDI problems on Windows.

# A common problem collapsing the URL bar popup on Windows has been fixed.

Looks like most of these fixes are invisible. Most changes affect web development, like Composer and are more welcome among web developers.
