At the moment there is no indication of any security fixes - that might come later.

Meanwhile, the two highlights are:

Support for flac (or possibly for streamed flac, I believe local flac was already working). Test page http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test/ did not work for me in 50.1 but now works in 51.0

Improved support for insecure logins (i.e. http: instead of https:) - apparently it will show a grep padlock icon with a red diagonal line across it.

I could not see any obvious changes in the patch for system graphite2 and harfbuzz, but my version of patch failed to apply the last hunk (looked like only a minor offset on a quick glance), so I've taken the latest version from gentoo. Will upload that in a few minutes.

Maybe I clicked on the wrong thing for security, the details are at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2017-01/ with five items marked critical. CVE-2017-5391
