  1. Mozilla Firefox 85 Is Now Available for Download, This Is What’s New The Mozilla Firefox 85 web browser is now available for download, ahead of its official unveiling on January 26th, for all supported platforms, including GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows. Firefox 85 has been in development since mid-November 2020 when it entered the Nightly channel and landed in the beta channel on December 15th, when Mozilla released the Firefox 84 web browser as the last release to ship with support for Adobe’s now deprecated Flash Player plugin. Therefore, Firefox 85 is the
  2. Firefox Nightly uses a new skeleton UI on start on Windows If you are using Firefox Nightly on Windows 10, you may have noticed a new more-or-less blank user interface that gets loaded on the very first start of the browser. Mozilla calls it a skeleton UI, and it is designed to give users early feedback that Firefox is indeed starting up. The bug report on Mozilla's Bugzilla website highlights that Firefox's startup is very slow on some systems. According to the lead developer, Firefox would take 19 seconds on a reference system before it gave any indication that it was
  3. Search and Manage tabs from multiple windows with ease using Tab Manager V2 for Firefox and Chrome Do you have too many tabs open in your browser? Sometimes it can get really difficult to locate the tab you need, and the more tabs you have, the worse it becomes. Before you discard all the tabs, give Tab Manager V2 a try. It is an extension for Firefox and Chrome that lets you search and manage tabs easily from a pop-up UI, and alternatively from a separate tab of its own. Tip: check out my reviews of Tab Manager Plus, Search all Tabs, and
  4. Rounded corners comes to Firefox with their Proton redesign While the 2010s were dominated by sharp concerns and a flat user interface, the 3rd decade of the 21st century is going back to a softer, more dimensional look, which for Windows means rounded corners, layers, gradients, opacity and colours. Those new design ideas have now percolated to 3rd party browser Firefox, as part of its Proton redesign. In the latest Nightlies you can now see the first implementation of the softer look, which can be seen below:
  5. First look at Firefox's Multiple Picture-in-Picture video feature Most web browsers support a picture-in-picture video feature to watch a video in an independent window on the screen. One of its main purposes is to watch a video while doing something else in the web browser. Moving the video page in a separate window and resizing it may work as well, but picture-in-picture's solution is more elegant most of the time. Mozilla revealed some time ago that it was considering lifting the one-video limit for the Firefox web browser's Picture-in-Picture mode. While
  6. First non-final Tabs redesign courtesy of Proton lands in Firefox Nightly Mozilla is working on a Firefox design refresh under the codename Proton. The project is in its early stages but the general plan appears to be to refresh pretty much any user interface element in the browser. Mozilla did create several mockups of browser elements, sometimes multiple, to showcase some of the ideas its UI team has for the refresh. It is clear that the project is still in its infancy and that final decisions have not been made yet. Firefox users who run the Nightly versi
  7. Mozilla to disable backspace key in Firefox to stop data loss Google and Microsoft both disabled the Backspace key in Chrome and Microsoft Edge browsers that allows users to go back to a previous web page when pressed by citing data loss. Mozilla has now joined them, the company has disabled the Backspace and Shift+ Backspace keyboard shortcuts for forward/backward page navigations in Firefox 86. Pressing this key does nothing in this version. Firefox still allows to make the shortcut work via a hidden pref and you can also use another shortcut Alt+ Left arrow (command
  8. Firefox for Android is still miles away from full extension support When Mozilla launched the redesigned Firefox mobile browser for Android, codename Fenix, in 2020, it knew that the new browser did not support all the features of the previous one. The organization hoped that users would see the benefits of the new Firefox browser for Android, that it offered better performance and web compatibility. One of the main complaints was that the new Firefox lacked full support for extensions. It was not even clear from the get-go if the new browser would support extensions at
  9. Firefox 85 on Android will allow extension installs from AMO Mozilla has announced that Firefox users on Android will be able to install browser extensions directly from addons.mozilla.org (AMO) starting with Firefox 85 which is due for release on January 25. The company said that allowing users to install extensions directly from AMO will help smooth out the installation process of add-ons. Until now, Firefox users on Android could only install add-ons that had been vetted directly from the browser’s Add-ons Manager; the firm will likely keep thi
  10. Firefox to support the printing of multiple pages per sheet Mozilla's Firefox web browser will soon support the printing of multiple pages per sheet. The new functionality is available in Firefox Nightly, the development edition of the Firefox web browser, already and will land in Firefox Stable eventually. The next print related feature to land in Firefox Stable is non contiguous printing support, which will be available in Firefox 85. The new version of the browser will be released next week to the public. The Nightly version highlights the improvement tha
  11. Firefox 85 remembers the last used bookmarks folder and gets other bookmarking improvements Firefox 85 Stable will be released next week, and the browser includes a number of new features and improvements. We looked at the browser's new network partitioning feature, support for importing passwords from KeePass and Bitwarden, non contiguous printing support, and improved Home and New Tab Page controls already. Bookmarking is another area with improvements. When you bookmark pages in Firefox currently, you will have them saved into the Other Bookmarks folder by default wi
  12. easyGestures N is a user-friendly, mouse gesture navigation extension for Firefox Gesturefy and FoxyGestures are incredible add-ons which allow you to control your browser with the mouse. The gestures do take some time to get used to; if you want something simpler, you can't go wrong with easyGestures N. It is fork of an old add-on called Easy Gestures, with a similar interface. But the features are quite different in the new extension. EasyGestures N requires three permissions by default, and the official page on
  13. Firefox 85 supports the import of KeePass and Bitwarden passwords The next stable version of the Firefox web browser supports the import of passwords from the password managers KeePass and Bitwarden, and password managers that use the same format. Current stable versions of the Firefox web browser support two password related import and export options by default. Firefox users may import passwords from supported web browsers -- Microsoft Edge classic and Chromium-based, Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Chromium -- and export logins to an unprotected CSV file.
  14. Google Images Restored restores the classic Google Images web interface Google Images Restored is an extension for Chromium-based and Firefox-based web browsers that restores the classic Google Images web interface and its functionality. Google started to tinker with the interface on Google Images in 2018 when it removed the "view image" button from the site. The feature allowed users to view the selected image in a new tab in the browser. Workarounds were discovered, but many users still missed the simplicity of the button. Search engines such as Startpage continue to
  15. Firefox 86: AVIF support enabled by default Mozilla plans to enable support for the AVIF format in Firefox 86 Stable so that AVIF image files will be displayed just like any other supported image format in the web browser. Mozilla introduced support for the AVIF file format back in May 2020 when it added support for an initial version to Firefox Nightly, the development version of the Firefox web browser. Firefox Nightly users had to enable the feature manually at the time to get it supported in the Firefox browser. The AVIF image format, also kn
  16. Quick Commands is a Firefox extension that works like Vivaldi's shortcuts Vivaldi users may be familiar with a feature called Quick Commands. These are keyboard shortcuts which allow you to do various things quickly like switching tabs, finding a specific tab, do an online search, and more. If you want a similar set of controls in Firefox, you can get it with the help of the Quick Commands extension. The name alone should tell you that the add-on is inspired by Vivaldi's built-in option. Here's how to use it. Install the add-on and press the hotkey
  17. Mozilla working on native Firefox translation feature Mozilla is working on integrating a native translation feature in the organization's Firefox web browser that does not rely on cloud services. One of the advantages that the Chrome browser has over Firefox is that it comes with integrated translate functionality. Mozilla did work on translation features in Firefox and integrated several services, including Yandex Translate and Google Translate in Firefox. The functionality is not enabled by default; one of the main reasons for that is that Mozilla
  18. Save webpages as an EPUB file with the Save as eBook extension for Firefox and Chrome Add-ons like SingleFile, Save Page WE and tools like wkhtmltopdf are handy when you want to save a web page for offline reading. You can of course use Microsoft's PDF Printer option to download pages as ebooks. Save as eBook works similarly, it is a Firefox and Chrome extension that can save web pages in the EPUB format. You could use it to save a Wikipedia page for reference, or tutorials, recipes, reference pages, etc. Let's see how it works. Visit a page tha
  19. Firefox 85 gets option to control Home and New Tab page extensions When you install extensions in Firefox currently that change the layout of the New Tab page or Home, you will notice that the layout of the last installed extension is picked automatically by Firefox. Most users won't install two extensions dedicated to changing the New Tab page or Home, but it may happen that users want to install one that is dedicated to the task, and another that is providing different functionality but also an option to replace the New Tab page and Home design.
  20. Mozilla is working on a Firefox design refresh Mozilla is working on a design refresh for the organization's Firefox web browser that it refers to as Photon internally. The last major design refresh of Firefox was unveiled in Firefox 57 in November 2017; it was known as Proton back then. Mozilla did change several interface elements after the release of Firefox 57, recently the controversial address bar overhaul that it launched in Firefox 75 Stable. Information about the design refresh is limited at this point in time. Mozilla created a meta bug on Bugzilla
  21. Manage your web shortcuts from a dual-pane interface with the Bookmarks Commander extension for Firefox and Chrome If you're a regular reader, you may know I'm a fan of dual-pane file managers. They're very convenient when you want to multitask or organize your folders and files. Well, if you have ever wanted to manage your browser bookmarks like that, your wish has been granted. Bookmarks Commander is an extension for Firefox and Chrome that has a dual-pane interface. The developer's page indicates that the addon was inspired by Norton Commander and Total
  22. How to use Firefox's Browsing History effectively The Firefox web browser keeps track of visited sites locally just like any other browser. The main idea behind the recording of visited sites is to provide users with suggestions based on past visits when they type in the address bar and also as an option to find previously visited sites to reopen them using the Library. Accessing the browsing history is not really that straightforward, as you first need to know that it is found under Library in Firefox. Select Menu > Library > History to display it in the menu. W
  23. Firefox 85 will improve privacy with network partitioning feature Next month's stable release of Firefox 85 will include the anti-tracking feature networking partitioning to improve user privacy on the Internet. While Firefox is not the first web browser to support network partitioning, that honor goes to Apple and the company's Safari web browser, it is a major improvement as it eliminates tracking techniques that rely on shared cache functionality. Most Internet users are aware of cookies by now and how they may be used to track users across sites. Less known is that
  24. Save the title and URL of your tabs in different formats with the CopyTabTitleUrl extension for Firefox and Chrome Maybe you want to save your session, or send the links to a friend, or share a page on social networks. Copying and pasting a link is ok if the service has web previews to display what the URL is for. But if it doesn't support it, you may want to share some information about the page. Including the title of the page should give the recipient an idea what the link is about. But then, you will need to copy 2 things. This isn't a prob
  25. Firefox 84.0.1 update fixes crashes and other issues Mozilla plans to release a minor update for the organization's Firefox web browser later today.
