+
+This release is an emergency release to fix a critical security
+vulnerability in *Tor Browser*.
+
+It also fixes [[other security
+vulnerabilities|security/Numerous_security_holes_in_3.13.1]]. You should upgrade as soon as possible.
+
+[[!toc levels=1]]
+
+# Changes
+
+## Upgrades and changes
+
+- Update *Tor Browser* to 8.0.9.
+
+ XXX: Check if there's a new blog post upstream.
+
+ Starting from Friday May 3, a problem in *Firefox* and *Tor Browser*
+ disabled all add-ons.
+
+ This release fixes the activation of add-ons in *Tor Browser*,
+ especially the *NoScript* add-on which is used to:
+
+ - Most importantly, protect against a very strong fingerprinting
+ technique called *HTML5 canvas fingerprinting* which can break your
+ anonymity.
+
+ Using HTML5 canvas fingerprinting, 2 or more collaborating websites
+ can compare how graphics and text are displayed by your computer to
+ determine whether 2 website visits are coming from the same
+ computer.
+
+ - Strengthen *Tor Browser* against some JavaScript attacks that can
+ lead to compromised accounts and credentials on websites.
+
+ - Enable or disable JavaScript on some websites using the NoScript
+ interface, if you use it.
+
+ XXX: Create ticket
+
+- Remove the *OpenPGP Applet* and *Pidgin* notification icons from the top
+ navigation bar.
+
+ [[!img top-navigation-bar.png link="no"]]
+
+ You can still access the *OpenPGP Applet* and *Pidgin* notification icons
+ from the system tray in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
+
+ To display the system tray, move your mouse to the thin gray line on the of
+ the window list in the bottom-left of the screen:
+
+ [[!img system-tray-folded.png class="margin" link="no"]] [[!img system-tray-unfolded.png class="margin" link="no"]]
+
+ To move these icons back to the top navigation bar, you can execute the
+ following command in a *Terminal*:
+
+ <p class="pre command">gnome-shell-extension-tool --enable-extension=TopIcons@phocean.net</p>
+
+ Until now, these icons were display in the top navigation bar by the
+ *TopIcons* GNOME extension. This extension is unmaintained, causes GNOME to
+ crash ([[!tails_ticket 11188]]), and will not work in Tails 5.0 based on
+ Debian 11 (Bullseye).
+
+ XXX: Tell the help desk what to do
+
+- Install localization packages only for the following languages:
+
+ - Arabic
+ - English
+ - Farsi
+ - French
+ - German
+ - Hindi
+ - Indonesian
+ - Italian
+ - Portuguese
+ - Russian
+ - Simplified Chinese
+ - Spanish
+ - Turkish
+
+ You can install localization packages for other languages using the
+ *[[Additional Software|doc/first_steps/additional_software]]* feature.
+
+ Localization packages include:
+
+ - *Thunderbird* localization:
+ packages <span class="command">thunderbird-l10n-<span class="command-placeholder">lang</span></span>
+ - *LibreOffice* localization:
+ packages <span class="command">libreoffice-l10n-<span class="command-placeholder">lang</span></span>
+ - Spell-checking dictionaries:
+ packages <span class="command">hunspell-<span class="command-placeholder">lang</span></span>
+
+ Where <span class="command-placeholder">lang</span> is the code for
+ your language. For example, <span class="command-placeholder">es</span> for
+ Spanish.
+
+ XXX: Create ticket
+
+- Add a suspend button to the system menu.
+

+
+- Add shutdown and restart buttons to the system menu when the screen is
+ locked.
+
+ XXX: Add screenshot

+- Replace all non-Latin fonts with the [[!wikipedia Noto_fonts
+ desc="Noto fonts family"]].

+# Known issues
+
+### Tails fails to start a second time on some computers ([[!tails_ticket 16389]])
+
+On some computers, after installing Tails to a USB stick,
+Tails starts a first time but fails to start a second time. In some
+cases, only BIOS (Legacy) was affected and the USB stick was not listed
+in the Boot Menu.
+
+We are still investigating the issue, so if it happens to you, please
+report your findings by email to <tails-testers@boum.org>. Mention the
+model of the computer and the USB stick. This mailing
+list is [archived publicly](https://lists.autistici.org/list/tails-testers.html).
+
+To fix this issue:
+
+1. Reinstall your USB stick using the same installation method.
+
+1. Start Tails for the first time and [[set up an administration
+ password|doc/first_steps/startup_options/administration_password]].
+
+1. Choose <span class="menuchoice">
+ <span class="guimenu">Applications</span>&nbsp;▸
+ <span class="guisubmenu">System Tools</span>&nbsp;▸
+ <span class="guimenuitem">Root Terminal</span>
+ </span> to open a <span class="application">Root Terminal</span>.
+
+1. Execute the following command:
+
+ <p class="pre command">sgdisk --recompute-chs /dev/bilibop</p>
+
+You can also test an experimental image:
+
+1. [Download the *.img* file from our development
+ server](https://nightly.tails.boum.org/build_Tails_ISO_bugfix-16389-recompute-chs/lastSuccessful/archive/build-artifacts/).
+
+1. Install it using the same installation methods.
+
+ We don't provide any OpenPGP signature or other verification technique
+ for this test image. Please only use it for testing.
+
+See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
+
