  1. Firefox users won't be able to sideload extensions starting March 2020, with Firefox 74. Mozilla has announced today plans to discontinue one of the three methods through which extensions can be installed in Firefox. Starting next year, Firefox users won't be able to install extensions by placing an XPI extension file inside a special folder inside a user's Firefox directory. The method, known as sideloading, was initially created to aid developers of desktop apps. In case they wanted to distribute a Firefox extension with their desktop app, the
  2. Despite looking to make DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) the default for its American users, Mozilla has assured culture secretary Nicky Morgan that this won't be the case in the UK. DoH has been fairly controversial, with the Internet Services Providers Association (ISPAUK) nominating Mozilla for an 'Internet Villain' over the whole thing, saying it will "bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls, undermining internet safety standards in the UK." In his letter to Morgan, Mozilla vice president of global policy, trust and security, Alan Davidson, stressed t
  3. Following the tradition, developers of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome have recently sent cakes to Microsoft after the launch of Chromium-based Edge browser for both Windows and Mac. Sending anniversary cake is a long known tradition-- 14 years to be precise. The cake sent by Google had a message: “Welcome to Chromium!”, while Mozilla's cake read, “bing it on, Microsoft!” Microsoft's Internet Explorer team started the cake-giving tradition back in 2006 when the developer team had sent a cake to Mozilla after the launch of Firefox 2 in 2006. The Internet Exp
  4. Development of Thunderbird email client to be moved to a new Mozilla subsidiary named MZLA Technologies Corporation. The Mozilla Foundation announced today that it was moving the Thunderbird email client to a new subsidiary named the MZLA Technologies Corporation. Mozilla said that Thunderbird will continue to remain free and open source, but by moving the project away from its foundation into a corporate entity they will be able to monetize the product and pay for its development easier than before. Currently, Thunderbird is primarily being kep
  5. Has Mozilla created a two-tier add-ons system? "This extension isn't monitored by Mozilla. Make sure you trust the extension before you install it." is displayed on the Firefox Browser add-ons website when users open all but some of the add-on pages on the official repository. About 100 extensions are listed on the official add-ons repository without the notification, and all of these are so-called recommended extensions. Mozilla unveiled the Recommended Extensions program for Firefox in April 2019 officially as a way to highlight a
  6. Mozilla announces that it will comply with Californian privacy rules worldwide Mozilla has announced that it plans to abide by the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on a worldwide scale in the new year, not just for those based in the western U.S. state. For those that haven’t been tracking CCPA, it’s a new law that gives Californians more privacy protections, similar to what Europeans have with the GDPR. The CCPA comes into effect on January 1, 2020. With the CCPA in place, the Attorney General of Califonia is allowed to enforce privacy
  7. A team of Belgian researchers discovered privacy issues in how browsers, ad-blocking, and anti-tracking implementations handle third-party cookie requests. A team of Belgian researchers from KU Leuven analyzed third-party cookie policies of seven major web browsers, 31 ad-blockers and 14 anti-tracking extensions and discovered major and minor issues in all of them. Major issues include Microsoft Edge's unwillingness to honor its own "block only third-party cookies" setting, bypasses for Firefox's Tracking Protection feature, and use of the integrated PDF viewer in Chrome
  8. Netmarketshare's browser market share has just been updated to include May 2018 share information. The company recorded a drop below the 10% mark in the desktop and laptop devices market for the Mozilla Firefox browser. Firefox had a market share of 12.63% in June 2017 according to Netmarketshare and even managed to rise above the 13% mark in 2017 before its share fell to 9.92% in May 2018. Google Chrome, Firefox's biggest rival in the browser world, managed to increase its massive lead from 60.08% in June 2017 to 62.85% in May 2018. Microsoft's Internet Exp
  9. Mozilla plans to change the updating logic of Firefox by removing the option to block updates from the browser's user interface and from about:config. Current stable versions of the Firefox web browser support three states when it comes to checking for and installing updates in the web browser. The default setting checks for updates automatically and installs them immediately when found. The second state checks for updates but requires user interaction to start the installation of the update, and the third state disables update checking entirely in the browser.
  10. API glitch also affects Edge, but who the frack cares about that? The Angry Fox is your guarantee that someone at Mozilla is piiiiissed GOOGLE HAS been accused of slowing down YouTube on other browsers by none other than Mozilla. The problem doesn't appear to be so much a case of malice, but more failure to think outside the box, as both Firefox and Microsoft Edge, a browser popular in small communities of primitive computer users, seem to have been affected, claims Chris Peterson, Mozilla's technical program manager. He explains that

    Don't downgrade Firefox 63

    Mozilla plans to change the backend for the storage.local API to indexedDB from JSON to improve performance in Firefox 63. The migration happens in the background and Firefox users who run Firefox 63 should not notice any issues afterward. Problems may arise however if users downgrade Firefox to an earlier version or switch to a channel that is not yet at Firefox 63 or newer. The change will land in Firefox Nightly first and if users load the Beta or Stable version of Firefox with the Nightly profile, they may run into data regression issues with extensions installed in
  12. Mozilla removed today 23 Firefox add-ons that snooped on users and sent data to remote servers, a Mozilla engineer has told Bleeping Computer today. The list of blocked add-ons includes "Web Security," a security-centric Firefox add-on with over 220,000 users, which was at the center of a controversy this week after it was caught sending users' browsing histories to a server located in Germany. Mozilla follows through on the promised investigation "The mentioned add-on has been taken down, together with others after I conducted a thorough audit of [the] add-ons," Rob Wu, a Mozill
  13. Mozilla revealed plans today to remove so-called legacy add-ons from the organization's repository site for extensions Mozilla AMO. Mozilla AMO hosts legacy add-ons and WebExtensions currently; going forward, Mozilla wants to purge legacy add-ons from the site as those are no longer compatible with any supported version of the Firefox web browser. Legacy add-ons is a broad term that refers to extensions, themes, and other content that is no longer supported by recent versions of the Firefox web browser. Mozilla switched from the classic add-ons system for Firefox t
  14. In Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser through the improved implementation of content blocking in the web browser. Firefox will protect users by blocking tracking by default and improve performance at the same time according to Mozilla. We reviewed the new content blocking options that Mozilla tests in Firefox Nightly currently already in July. The new feature, called Content Blocking in Nightly, integrates Firefox's long standing feature Tracking Protection
  15. The new browser might be called Fenix. Firefox is one of the many alternative browsers for Android devices available on the Google Play Store. It’s a favorite of many, especially the privacy-conscious. On Android, though, it has entered a maintenance phase, meaning there are not going to be many updates for the foreseeable future—barring bug fixes and security updates of course. According to Emily Kager, Mobile Engineer at Mozilla, there’s still a lot to look forward to. What does this mean? Well, those who use Firefox for its privacy and security hav
  16. An Invisible Tax on the Web: Video Codecs Here’s a surprising fact: It costs money to watch video online, even on free sites like YouTube. That’s because about 4 in 5 videos on the web today rely on a patented technology called the H.264 video codec. A codec is a piece of software that lets engineers shrink large media files and transmit them quickly over the internet. In browsers, codecs decode video files so we can play them on our phones, tablets, computers, and TVs. As web users, we take this performance for granted. But the truth is, companies pay mill
  17. Mozilla announced on Monday that its Root Store Policy for Certificate Authorities (CAs) has been updated to version 2.6. The Root Store Policy governs CAs trusted by Firefox, Thunderbird and other Mozilla-related software. The latest version of the policy, discussed by the Mozilla community over a period of several months, went into effect on July 1. The new Root Store Policy includes nearly two dozen changes and some of the more important ones have been summarized in a blog post by Wayne Thayer, CA Program Manager at Mozilla. Version 2.6 of the Root Store Polic
  18. OpenSourcery Tropical IPA made with open-source mindset and ancient art of brewing Open-sourced beer.....whatever next? MOZILLA MAKES software and Firefox, so the last place you'd expect it to be is a brewery, but it's teamed up with one to create an open-sourced beer. The company worked with Oregon-based brewery Widmer Brothers to create a beer based on data collected from a survey that was then crunched by the brewers to figure out the combination of hops and other ingredients and beer style that would suit the beer-swilling community. "W
  19. Mozilla is working on a new feature for the organization's Firefox web browser currently which adds multi-tab management capabilities to the browser. Firefox does not support multi-tab operations right now; if you want to close, move or bookmark sites open in multiple tabs in the browser right now, you will have to do so one after the other. The upcoming multi-tab management options enable you to run operations on several tabs at once in Firefox to make things more comfortable. Firefox is not the first browser to support multiple tab selections and operation
  20. The Firefox web browser displays a list of top sites on the web browser's New Tab page by default next to a search field, highlights, soon downloads, and recommendations. Mozilla changed the New Tab Page in Firefox 57 and introduced something that it called Activity Stream on it. Top Sites are displayed just below the search form on the New Tab page in the Firefox browser. Firefox displays a single row of websites and services by default. Top Sites are sites that are visited the most. Firefox gives users options to pin sites so that they become available. Ea
  21. Mozilla is rolling out support for a two-step authentication process for Firefox Accounts, the credentials system that protects bookmarks, passwords, open tabs and other data synchronized between devices via the Firefox Sync feature. The feature is being gradually rolled out to users, according to Mozilla engineer Vijay Budhram. The feature is also not SMS code-based. Instead, the system works with authentication codes produced by standard TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) apps and services, such as Authy, Duo, Google Authenticator, and others. As the featur
  22. Tor Uplift project Tor Browser based on Firefox ESR, plus a lot of patches. Takes a lot of time to rebase patches. Mission was to reduce their efforts. Mozilla started bringing Tor Browser patches into Firefox. Successful new features in Tor Browser/Firefox in the last 1.5 years: First-party isolation, and fingerprinting resistance. First Party Isolation, off by default in Firefox. Fingerprinting resistance issue, breaks some websites. Fusion Project goals Fingerprinting resistance, make more user friendly and reduce web breakage Implement proxy
  23. Mashing up two network technologies -- DNS and HTTPS -- thwarts snooping and tampering. Browser makers are trying to thwart network snoopers by encrypting your connections to the web servers that host websites, but Mozilla on Friday began a project to go one step further. Firefox Nightly, a rough-around-the-edges test version of Mozilla's browser, now includes technology called DNS over HTTPS, Mozilla said. DNS is the Domain Name System used to find the numeric addresses needed to communicate with computers across the network -- 64.30.228.118 for CNET.com, for exam
