    Mozilla claims latest Firefox 42 release offers "the most privacy"

    Mozilla has just launched Firefox version 42.0. Key new features in this latest release of the popular web browser include a new Private Browsing with Tracking Protection feature, unified security controls in the Control Centre, Web RTC improvements, Login manager improvements and a handy indicator/mute function for 'noisy' browser tabs.

    Much of the focus on of the Firefox 42 is upon 'a More Private Browsing Experience'. Nick Nguyen, the Vice President of Firefox Product, penned a blog post which concentrates on the user benefits of Tracking Protection within the Firefox Private Browsing functionality. Nguyen says that it brings industry leading control over the data that third parties receive from you online.





    The Firefox Private Browsing feature started by offering users local control over privacy. When choosing this mode a private window popped up for browsing and didn't keep your browser history and cookies on your machine when the window closed. However some users might worry more about the possibility of their browsing habits being scrutinised by third parties, via online tracking.
    In summary, Private Browsing with Tracking Protection in Firefox actively blocks content like ads, analytics trackers and social share buttons that may record your behaviour, without your knowledge, across sites. This functionality is now built into Firefox on Windows, Mac, Android and Linux.

    A new Control Centre in Firefox puts all the control for such security and privacy concerns into one place. Some pages might appear broken when various elements are blocked, so you can easily and quickly toggle things on and off via the Control Centre.
    You can read through the full Firefox 42.0 desktop release notes here. In Windows you can check your Mozilla Firefox 'About' dialogue box to nudge your earlier version of the browser to be updated. Alternatively directly download the latest version of Firefox for Windows, Linux 32/64-bit and Mac OS X here. The Android version of Firefox is available via Google Play.

    Mozilla axes heavyweight Firefox themes and tab groups

    Back in August, Mozilla announced plans to adopt a Chrome-like extension framework for Firefox called WebExtensions. In turn, the company plans to deprecate its existing XUL and XPCOM plug-in APIs. These changes are part of a larger project to make Firefox a more modern browser. According to a couple of entries in Mozilla's Bugzilla tracker, some less popular features of Firefox are going to be retired as part of this project, too.
    The first feature to hit the trashbin is support for "heavyweight" themes that rely on older add-on technologies. According to the Bugzilla entry for this change, themes that replace chrome packages (not to be confused with the Chrome browser) and "do arbitrary styling" will no longer be supported. Mozilla is mulling the idea of adding features to the lightweight themes supported by WebExtensions, but the entry doesn't have any further details of those plans.
    Tab groups will be getting the axe, too. Mozilla says that this feature "has significant effects on more important aspects of Firefox development." The Bugzilla entry says that Mozilla will develop a plan to migrate existing users away from using tab groups.
    The response to both proposed changes has been negative, but Mozilla says that the development effort to maintain these features far outweighs the number of Firefox users who actually take advantage of them. While the development team may extend WebExtensions to accommodate themes, it has made no such announcement regarding tab groups. One developer has started work on an extension for groups, though.

    Mozilla to Remove Ads From Firefox (Eventually)



    Over the last year, Mozilla has been experimenting with integrating ads into its popular browser, Firefox, in an attempt to integrate them into the tiles on new tab page (and presumably earn more revenue). But now, Mozilla’s VP of content services, Darren Herman has released a blog post revealing plans for the advancement of content in Firefox, and this future will no longer include ads.
    According to Herman, the decision to move away from providing advertisement is the result of a learning process within the Content Services Team, about what users want from their products and the web. Users wish to experience content that is “relevant, exciting and engaging” and the removal of ads will both allow the space to be used to provide such content, as well as letting the team focus on getting the new systems for content discovery right. This may not be the end of advertisement in Firefox for good, however, with Herman feeling that “Advertising in Firefox could be a great business, but it isn’t the right business for us at this time”.
    The ads won’t be gone immediately either, as Mozilla will still honour their commitments and obligations to their existing advertisement partners, with the presence of ads winding down over the coming months.

    Say goodbye to ads in the Tiles screen in Firefox, hello to 'content discovery'



    Mozilla is getting rid of ads from the Tiles that pop up when a new tab is opened in favor of promoting content discovery. In a company blog post, Darren Herman, VP of Content Services, writes that the decision came after learning that users want content – not ads – and Mozilla will use the free spaces to help people discover new content. Of course, the change can’t happen overnight. Mozilla will honor its current agreements with advertising partners, and end the presence of ads over the next few months.
    In the post, Herman says that including ads in Firefox “could be a great business” but it isn’t a good fit for the company right now. He put some blame on the advertising business as a whole, saying that “the ecosystem needs to do better.” But what does better mean? The definition of good ads can differ widely from person to person, or company to company. Herman is probably talking about ads that don't detract from the browsing experience, but it will take some time before we find out for sure.

    Firefox 43 Launches With 64-Bit Windows Version And 'Strict' Tracking Protection

    Mozilla launched Firefox 43, which includes a 64-bit version for Windows and a stricter option for blocking trackers in the recently launched Tracking Protection feature.
    64-bit Firefox

    Back in 2012, Mozilla decided to quietly kill the 64-bit build of Firefox (at the time still in the testing stage). The reason Mozilla gave at the time was that many Firefox plugins didn’t have a 64-bit version, and if they did, it usually didn’t work well and crashed too often.
    Mozilla didn’t think it had the necessary resources to focus on fixing all of those problems at the time, so it killed the project. However, this led to major backlash from vocal Firefox users, which eventually convinced Mozilla to resume work on a 64-bit version for Windows.
    This was never a problem for Linux or Mac OS X, where most of those third-party plugins wouldn’t work anyway. Because Mozilla decided to drop support for most NPAPI plugins by the end of 2016, it now seems like the right time to bring back the 64-bit version of Firefox for Windows.
    The 64-bit version brings some benefits for users, too, including increased security through a more effective address space layout randomization (ASLR), making it harder for malicious websites to exploit browser vulnerabilities. It should also bring better performance, and users will be able to run web apps that are bigger than 4 GB of RAM (such as cloud-based development tools or more advanced 3D web games).
    Strict Tracking Protection

    Firefox 43 also allows users to block even more trackers when using the Private Browsing mode with Tracking Protection enabled. The additional option for blocking trackers, called “strict protection,” blocks all known trackers as opposed to only some of them, as the “basic protection” does. However, users should be warned that some sites may break when this feature is enabled.
    Additional Improvements

    The new version of Firefox also received API support for .m4v video playback, an on-screen keyboard that appears when users select input fields on Windows 8 or greater, and it gives users the option to choose search suggestions from the Awesome Bar. Firefox 43 was also supposed to receive the first implementation of the Electrolysis sandboxing architecture, but it looks like that was delayed.

    Firefox 44 launches with push notifications after you close it

    The latest Firefox build, now up to 44, can give you push notifications even after you close the browser. They've also removed support for the RC4 encryption cipher and added some very powerful, and easy to use, developer tools.


    The push notification feature lets you receive all notifications from any website that you give permission to, and if it's not loaded in a tab you'll still get the notification through Firefox itself. Mozilla says it's a useful feature for getting dynamic updates about weather and even your social network feed.

    They've also stopped support for the aging RC4 cipher that's used for HTTPS connections. It was originally designed in 1987 and is incredibly weak by today's standards. It doesn't take long to crack a this cipher with today's compute power. So if a website uses that as their method of connection, then you'll get a warning page and you won't be able to connect. Modern SSL certificates don't make use of that anyway, so it shouldn't be too much of an issue. And those developer tools? Very slick.

    Now there are visual tools for creating a layout of a webpage You can also use a easy to use GUI to view and edit CSS animations. It's all so simple, yet so complex underneath. And it lets you do so much with it. All of the changes in the new version are located right here, for your enjoyment.

    Mozilla Bans Popular YouTube Unblocker Add-On


    One of Firefox’s popular add-ons has been kicked from the repository after repeated bad behavior, and it is unlikely to come back. The YouTube add-on uses a list of proxy servers to circumvent geoblocking of YouTube videos, which in itself is a very useful feature, but one that you’ll have to find another add-on for from now on.
    The latest of multiple issues with the popular browser add-on that already accumulated over 250 thousand downloads started last weekend with a user reporting an issue on the Mozilla bug tracker. After installing the add-on, his anti-virus software alarmed him right away that it had blocked a download coming from a third-party website which had been flagged as malware by Avast Anti Virus.
    On further examination, the user found out that the add-on was altering the browser settings and disabled the add-on signing feature preventing unauthorized installs, AKA add-ons that haven’t been signed or certificated by Mozilla. After disabling this security feature, the YouTube Unblocker add-on then went on to download another add-on called Adblock Converter from a third-party domain via an unsecured connection, an add-on that is categorized as malware and isn’t to be found in the official add-on library. To make matters even worse, users without proper anti-virus or anti malware solutions wouldn’t even know that this extra add-on was installed as it wouldn’t show up in the about:addons page either and it would reinstall itself again if a user managed to uninstall it in safe mode.
    This is far from the first time that this add-on has been under investigation for bad behavior, last time in June 2015 where they were caught circumventing the official guidelines for add-ons with update code that bypassed the official Mozilla review process. Before that, they were caught tampering with search results and sending data back to the company without the users consent or knowledge, even when the user opted out of the feature.
    Luckily for users who need a geo-unblocking feature for their Firefox browser, there are plenty of other alternatives to choose from.

    Eu usei Opera (quando era mesmo opera e não base chromium) e depois Vivaldi (que foi ficando lento)... e voltei ao firefox.
    Pode até nem ser o mais rápido mas continua a ser um solido browser, sempre a modernizar, boa estabilidade e muitos addons.

    Boas!
    Eu uso o FF desde o seu início e nunca o deixei de usar...

    Não é o mais rápido mas já estou tão habituado ao seu funcionamento, os seus addons que eu uso e a cena de guardar as passwords e afins...
    Que já não me vejo a mudar para outro...

    Uso-o até no telemóvel...

    Firefox Quantum moves out of beta

    The long awaited Firefox Quantum (version 57) has finally made it out of beta. This new version of the popular Mozilla browser promises twice the speed, 30% less memory usage, and privacy improvements. An all-new interface is just the cherry on top. Download here.
    Já cá anda a super versão do Firefox, e do que estou a ver está rápida.

    Já tinha instalado a versão beta mas acho que nos últimos 2/3 dias fez o update para versão final. Estou a gostar de utilizar e nota-se que está mais rápido
