This seems to be a pretty buggy release. The changes to the tab overflow creates crashes. Firefox just hasn't been handling multiple tabs to well in last few releases.

Considering that version 66.0 was release on March 19, updated on March 22 and again on March 27 perhaps they aren't testing as well as they should be.

Add another update, Version 66.0.3 Was released 10 April 2019. It looks like more of a bug fix, no  security issues.

Correct, techie.  Nothing updated for security updates in this or the previous update.  Also, no update to Firefox ESR
