Default Firefox 63.0 ~ 22/10/2018

Firefox 63.0 is available from MajorGeeks and FileHorse, but not from Mozilla yet. Presumably these are for the en-US version.

Firefox Download for Windows / FileHorse.com

Download Mozilla Firefox 63.0 - MajorGeeks

You can also get the download from Softpedia, where there's also more info about this release:

Mozilla Firefox 63.0 "Quantum" Is Now Available for Download, Here's What's New

It appears that the download from Mozilla will be available tomorrow.

When I got Firefox 63.0 on this PC earlier today, I got this 'What's New?' page when it restarted:

See what’s new with Firefox

At the top of the page it said
Quote:
Congrats! You’re using the latest version of Firefox.
Below this, there was a box where inviting the user to "Get your Firefox Account". Did everyone get this? I didn't sign up for a Firefox account.

More on Firefox's efforts in tracking protection in this article from Sophos' Naked Security:

Firefox 63 gets tough with trackers – Naked Security
Quote:
Mozilla’s ambition to turn Firefox into the number one privacy browser was never going to be easy to pull off.

Too few, or ineffective, controls and privacy becomes a benefit in name only. Too many blunt controls and there is a danger of making websites difficult to use in ways that put people off the whole idea.

I only have FF installed as a spare browser and rarely use it, but keep it updated so I don't bother with any extras it puts out.

Firefox has probably enabled tracker blocking by default. I don't use Firefox much, but if I go to either Tools>Options or use the 3-bar icon to get to Content Blogking, under Privacy & Security>Browser Privacy, this is what I see:



I haven't change any settings myself. This is in Firefox 63.0.
