## Fixed problems
- Fix printing to a PDF in *Tor Browser*. ([[!tails_ticket 13403]]

- Fix the opening of the **Applications** menu when the time
synchronization changed the clock in the past. ([[!tails_ticket 14250]])
- Fix the opening of the documentation included in Tails for many
non-English languages. ([[!tails_ticket 15160]])
- Fix translations of the time synchronization and "*Tor is ready*"
notifications. ([[!tails_ticket 13437]])

# Known issues
- Debug and error messages appear when starting Tails, including an
alarming message about a *kernel BUG*.
These messages do not affect the safety of Tails.
[[!img logs.png link="no"]]
- In *Tails Installer*, it is only possible to select an ISO image when
choose **Use a downloaded Tails ISO image** when running Tails in
English. For other language, the file chooser button remains inactive:
[[!img broken-file-chooser.png link="no"]]
- The documentation shipped in Tails doesn't open in *Tor Browser*
anymore. The warning page of the *Unsafe Browser* also lacks graphical
design. ([[!tails_ticket 14962]] and [[!tor_bug 24243 desc="Tor #24243"]])
See the list of [[long-standing issues|support/known_issues]].
