Addresses an issue that might prevent you from minimizing an application that uses unthemed windows. Addresses an issue that prevents the Windows Movies and TV app from playing .mp4 media files that contain Pixel Aspect Ration (PAR) information.

  8. Mozilla plans to release a minor Firefox update later today. Firefox 91.0.2 is a non-security update that fixes two issues in the web browser, one of which affecting Firefox on Mac OS. The new version of Firefox is not available at the time of writing. Later today, on August 24, 2021, Mozilla will make it available to all users. Select Menu > Help > About Firefox to check the currently installed version of the web browser. Firefox 91.0.2 will be distributed via the browser's automatic updating system and users may download it from the official Mozilla website. Firefox 91.0.2 Firefox 91.0.2 is the second minor update of Firefox 91, which Mozilla released on August 10, 2021. Firefox 91 is the new base for Firefox's Extended Support Release channel. The new version introduced features such as simplified printing and HTTPS-First connections in private browsing mode. Firefox 91.0.1 was released a week later on August 17, 2021. It fixed security issues in Firefox and addressed stability issues. Firefox 91.0.2 fixes two issues that users may have experienced in previous versions of the web browser. The first addresses an issue on Mac OS X devices. Mac OS X users who had "increase contrast" checked in the Mac OS X settings did not have high contrast mode in Firefox enabled by default due to a bug. The new release addresses the issue in Firefox. The second issue may have affected Firefox users who are using the password manager Lockwise. According to the bug report, Firefox Lockwise was prompting users repeatedly to enter the primary password. The initial bug report confirmed the issue on Windows, but other users confirmed it on Linux as well. It is likely that it could happen on all desktop systems that Firefox supports. The issue seems to have appeared in Firefox 90, according to the reports. Mozilla discovered that the issue was linked to the clearing of data in Firefox. The new version of Firefox fixes the issue: Firefox no longer clears authentication data when purging trackers, to avoid repeatedly prompting for a password. Closing Words Firefox users who experienced the password manager issue will have it fixed later today with the release of Firefox 91.0.2. Users of the browser who don't use the password manager and don't rely on high contrast mode in Firefox are in no hurry to upgrade. The final release notes will be published here. Firefox 92, which will include the bug fixes, will be released on September 7, 2021. Firefox 91.0.2 will be released later today Frontpaged: Mozilla Forefox Browser 91.0.2
  9. After five successful world updates which have seen Microsoft Flight Simulator steadily improving to look even better than it did before, the latest World Update 6 has been pushed back to ensure quality. “In order to ensure that World Update 6 reaches a very high level of quality, we have decided to move back the release date to September 7th,” Asobo Studio announced via a development update. “We are very excited about this update as it features many enhancements to the region,” the Asobo team went on to explain in the development update post, revealing that World Update 6, which focuses on Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, includes “new aerials and elevation maps, new photogrammetry cities, 4 hand-crafted airports, nearly 100 POIs and new discovery flights, landing challenges, and bush trips.” Originally scheduled for release on August 24th, this delay is only two weeks thankfully, so we’re not left waiting for more Microsoft Flight Simulator content for long. In the meantime, Asobo did at least give us the highlights from World Update 6’s release notes. On top of being able to read through the preliminary release notes, there is, of course, still a lot of content in Microsoft Flight Simulator to enjoy, with five prior world updates, and not to mention the whole world to explore. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s World Update 6 is now due to launch on September 7th, for both PC and Xbox Series X|S. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s World Update 6 has been delayed

  11. Mozilla will release Firefox 91.0.1 and Firefox 91.0.1 ESR later today. The two new versions of the organization's Firefox web browser fix security and stability issues of previous versions of the browser. Mozilla released Firefox 91, a new major version of the browser and new Extended Support Release base, last week. The new version of Firefox added a HTTPS-First policy for the browser's private browsing mode, re-added the Simplified Printing option and fixed security issues among other things. Firefox 91 is also the first version that removed options to disable the browser's new Proton interface using advanced preferences. Firefox 91.0.1 will become available later today. It is already available on Mozilla's distribution server, but it is not recommended to install this version as there is no guarantee that it is indeed the final version. Most Firefox installations will be updated automatically via the browser's built-in updating system. Downloads will also become available later today on the official Mozilla website. You can display the current version and run a manual check for updates by going to Menu > Help > About Firefox. Mozilla highlights four changes in Firefox 91.0.1, but not all information is available at this point. Firefox 91.0.1 comes with "various stability fixes" and a security fix. The security information is not yet available; it will be published after Firefox 91.0.1 has been released officially. Additional information about the stability fixes is not available either. The two remaining issues are described in detail: An issue caused buttons on the browser's tab bar to be resized when "certain websites" were loaded. An issue caused tabs from private browsing windows to be visible in non-private windows when viewing "switch-to-tab results in the address bar panel". Both of these bugs have been fixed and should not be experienced anymore by Firefox users once the browser has been updated to the new version. Closing Words The official release notes do not reveal the severity of the security issue. You may want to pay attention to the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories website, as information will be listed on that page later today. Firefox 91.0.1 fixes stability and security issues Frontpaged: Mozilla Forefox Browser 91.0.1
  12. With multiple updates and hotfixes now under its belt, is Cyberpunk 2077 is now on its way to receiving Patch 1.3, its next major update. While a release date has not been shared yet, today, the studio provided an update on some of the changes heading for the game soon. In 1.3, the minimap is getting a much-needed revamp, with the studio adding a zooming out element for when V gets into a car. This should alleviate the blasting past intended turns problem many are having since launch. Another major change is the addition of perk reallocation. Following the update, players will be able to reset the perks they have selected at any point using in-game cash and put the freed-up perk points towards another build. It seems the cost associated with the reset will depend on V's current level, like in other RPGs. Also, arriving as a much smaller change, the Matching Procedure option given to players when they visit the Clouds establishment for a quest has been tweaked. Hopefully, players will no longer be so confused when selecting the doll (Angel or Skye) they want. Essentially, images of the two options will hover more prominently as the dialog progresses after the change. Keep in mind these highlights won't be the only changes present in the 1.3 update, with CD Projekt RED adding that "they’re not the biggest ones and there’ll be more to come." Today's update details came in the form of an in-universe news report. Find the complete blog post here. For those looking for the usual patch notes, they will be landing closer to the update's launch, which should be quite soon. CD Projekt RED will also be hosting a developer livestream at 18:00 CEST on its Twitch channel tomorrow, August 17, to discuss the update in detail. Cyberpunk 2077 is getting minimap fixes, perk reset options, and more
  13. Microsoft has updated the Immersive Reader in the latest Microsoft Edge Canary browser with new options. The Immersive reader now lets you choose from 3 different column widths, allowing you to customise the readers for whichever width is most comfortable for you. Another change new element in the latest Edge Canary is the addition of a Share option in the right-click menu on links, which lets you share a link you are clicking on, rather than the whole page itself. The improvements are available in Edge Canary, build 94.0.981.0. Source: Leo Varela. Microsoft Edge Immersive Reader updated with new options
  14. We probably won't see any new macOS features until Monterey later this year. Today, Apple released a new version of its Mac operating system, macOS Big Sur. The new update is labeled macOS Big Sur 11.5.2, but there aren't any new features or major security updates. Rather, macOS 11.5.2 focuses on "bug fixes." In fact, these are Apple's release notes for the latest version of Big Sur, in their entirety: macOS 11.5.2 includes bug fixes for your Mac. As you can see, the release notes do not specify which bugs have been fixed and mention no new features. Apple maintains a support page where it details the security updates within a given release, too. But that's bare for this release. "This update has no published CVE entries," it says. While Apple often (but not always) releases software updates for many or all of its platforms at the same time, macOS was alone today—at least in terms of public releases. Today also saw major new beta releases of iOS 15, watchOS 8, macOS Monterey, and more. macOS 11.5.2 follows macOS 11.5.1 (which contained security updates) and macOS 11.5 (which also consisted largely of—you guessed it—bug fixes and security updates). We probably won't see significant new macOS features until macOS Monterey arrives later this year. Among other things, that major upcoming release is expected to include various new ways to integrate a Mac with an iOS or iPadOS device, like Universal Control. This will facilitate new ways of controlling macOS and iPad devices together with the same mouse and keyboard. macOS Big Sur 11.5.2 is here, but it doesn’t seem to do much
  15. Microsoft has announced that the July 2021 update of its Visual Studio Code editor has been made available. Each new version of Visual Studio Code is released each month with several new features and this month is no different. Some of the changes include improvements to the extensions view no matter how big your display is and built-in support for Jupyter notebooks .ipynb files which means you’ll no longer need to grab the plug-in. Other features available in this update give you the option to customise multiple colour themes at once and move terminals across windows to editor and panel areas. Furthermore, VS Code gained a command line interface for working with development containers, you can view disassembled C++ code with the Debug Disassembly view, the built-in Test Explorer supports running tests natively in the editor, and you can find editing errors for object-based settings using the settings editor validation tool. Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code team said it will be holding a live stream next Tuesday (August 10) at 8 a.m. PST to show off all the new features in this update. If you want to ask the team any questions about the changes in this update, there will be the opportunity to do so. You can use the following links to download the latest update: Windows: User Installer, System Installer, ARM Mac: Universal, 64-bit, Arm64 Linux: snap, deb, rpm, tarball, ARM If you want to try new features before they’re released to everyone, you can use the Visual Studio Code Insiders builds which are released daily.

  16. Microsoft Flight Simulator PC update offers massive performance improvements The PC version of Microsoft Flight Simulator, recently ported to Xbox Series X, just got a big update on your computer There's a big Microsoft Flight Simulator PC update, and it's almost as if last year's groundbreaking flight sim PC game is determined not to be overshadowed by the news the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles versions just launched. Microsoft Flight Simulator remains one of the most graphically demanding PC titles ever. While gamers’ reactions to highly anticipated games can grow distorted and polarized, the flight sim’s 2020 release elicited memories of the Crysis launch in 2007. Gamers with medium-to-high-end PCs that can run other modern games on "Ultra" settings reported defaulting to a mere "Medium" on the highly taxing title. Today’s PC update should help remedy those issues. The patch offers "significant performance improvements to make the experience more seamless," according to developer Asobo. These tweaks include much better multi-core processor support, memory and GPU usage, and loading times. The patch also reduces stutters significantly. The developers rewrote part of the engine's architecture to achieve today’s leap forward, as they recounted in a recent Twitch stream. The new Microsoft Flight Simulator PC patch should also improve VR performance, where every little frame-rate hiccup can have a more noticeable effect. The game's PC version supports VR headsets without any additional purchases. (Image credit: Microsoft) Analysis: where Microsoft Flight Simulator stands today Microsoft Flight Simulator is a staggering technical undertaking. Developers mapped out the entire world with Bing Maps, delivering a playable Earth with nearly photorealistic views. The game even includes real-time weather and traffic. In TechRadar's review, we praised the flight sim's incredible graphics, attention to detail, and support for flight sticks and other peripherals. Our complaints were relatively minor, focusing on its difficulty for beginners, confusing range of editions, and widely varying airports. Clearly, the work isn't done on the game, as PC gamers can download the update now or finally check it out on Xbox Game Pass, as it's available through the Microsoft all-you-can-play Netflix-style subscription game service. For more on Microsoft Flight Simulator, you can check out our tips for getting started, along with our flight-stick recommendations.

  17. iPadOS 14.7 and macOS Big Sur 11.5 come with plenty of bug fixes and security updates It's unusual for iPadOS to come after iOS, but it's here. Apple has released new versions of its iPadOS and macOS operating systems just a couple of days after the company updated iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The iPadOS update adds some new features and shares a lot with its iOS counterpart, while the macOS release is a modest one that focuses on a couple of bug fixes. It's unusual for an iPadOS update to arrive after an iOS update, and it's likely that Apple delayed iPadOS at the last minute to address some issue, but we don't know for sure. In any case, the update is here now. iPadOS 14.7 Many of the new features and bug fixes Apple lists in iPadOS 14.7's release notes are the same as those seen in iOS 14.7 earlier this week. The first bullet point highlights the ability to tie two individuals in a family unit to the same Apple Card account, allowing them to develop credit together. The update also introduces a way to manage timers on a HomePod and tweaks the Podcasts interface. In one iPad-specific note, Apple says it has fixed a problem that caused audio to skip when using USB-C-to-3.5 mm headphone jack adapters. Apple's full release notes from iPadOS 14.7 are as follows: iPadOS 14.7 includes the following improvements and bug fixes for your iPad: Apple Card family adds the option to combine credit limits and share one co-owned account with an existing Apple Card user Home app adds the ability to manage timers on HomePod Podcasts library allows you to choose to see all shows or only followed shows Share Playlist menu option missing in Apple Music Dolby Atmos and Apple Music lossless audio playback may unexpectedly stop Braille displays could show invalid information while composing Mail messages Audio may skip when using USB-C to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapters with iPad macOS Big Sur 11.5 macOS Big Sur 11.5 also landed for supported Macs today, but it is a smaller release that delivers a few bug fixes and several security updates. It has the same Podcasts tweak as seen in iOS and iPadOS, and it fixes an issue related to data in the Music app and another with smart cards on M1 Macs. Here are the full macOS 11.5 release notes: macOS Big Sur 11.5 includes the following improvements for your Mac: Podcasts Library tab allows you to choose to see all shows or only followed shows This release also fixes the following issues: Music may not update play count and last played date in your library Smart cards may not work when logging into Mac computers with the M1 chip For more detailed information about this update, please visit: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT211896 You can read about the security updates in these releases on Apple's website, and there are quite a few for this version of macOS. Apple also clarified that this week's iOS update (and iPadOS, too) addressed a widely publicized Wi-Fi-related vulnerability. From the security update documentation: Impact: Joining a malicious Wi-Fi network may result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution Description: This issue was addressed with improved checks With these macOS and iPadOS releases, Apple has now updated its entire suite of operating systems. These updates may be the last ones (other than emergency security or bug fixes) before Apple launches major new versions of iOS and macOS this fall. iPadOS 14.7 and macOS Big Sur 11.5 come with plenty of bug fixes and security updates

  19. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Update 5 greatly improves performance During a Live dev Q&A livestream, Asobo Studio CEO Sebastian Wloch, showcased the upcoming performance improvements for PC and the upcoming Xbox release. Throughout the live stream, Wloch compared the current build against the new Update 5, which is set to launch on July 27th, to show off just how much of an improvement this technical update brings to Microsoft Flight Simulator. Running an Intel Core i7-900K CPU and an NVIDIA Geforce RTX 2060 Super GPU, Wloch’s PC is absolutely no slouch, yet on Ultra graphics with a 4k upscale, he only managed to achieve 30 to 40 FPS when flying over Manhattan, with his CPU maxing out at 100% capacity. Switching to Update 5 however has the framerate soar to a much more appropriate 55 to 60 FPS, with the GPU becoming the bottleneck at 100% rather than the CPU since Update 5 is targeted at making primarily CPU based improvements. Update 5 is set to launch on July 27th, the same day that the Series X|S versions of Microsoft Flight Simulator launch. With this performance improvement, hopefully, console players can expect to see the gorgeous vistas of Microsoft Flight Simulator without the framerate being more akin to a slideshow. Microsoft Flight Simulator’s Update 5 greatly improves performance
  20. Latest Windows 10 updates bring gaming performance improvements and other fixes Microsoft today released optional cumulative updates to Windows 10 versions 21H1, 20H2, and 2004. These are part of the company’s optional C/D releases for supported versions, meaning these are not automatically downloaded and installed like the usual Patch Tuesday updates. The fixes in these builds will be rolled into the Patch Tuesday release that will happen on the second Tuesday of July. Today, all three fully supported Windows 10 versions are receiving KB5003690, bumping the build numbers to 19043.1081, 19042.1081, and 19041.1081 for versions 21H1, 20H2, and 2004, respectively. The reason that all three versions are receiving the same patch is that they are built on the same codebase as that of version 2004, with the October 2020 Update and the May 2021 Update being just enablement packages. As for what’s included in these builds, there are fixes to improve gaming performance issues that users began reporting in April, which the firm acknowledged and released a fix for – essentially rolling back the code that caused the issue using Known Issue Rollback (KIR). Additionally, the update also fixes the problem with the News and Interests widget displaying blurry text – something that was recently added to the list of known issues for Windows 10. Other fixes include addressing sign-in problems when using a pin or a fingerprint for authentication. Here are the highlights of today’s update: Updates an issue in a small subset of users that have lower than expected performance in games after installing KB5000842 or later. Updates an issue that causes the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) to suddenly stop working while you are typing. Updates an issue in which signing in using a PIN fails. The error message is "Something happened and your PIN isn’t available. Click to set up your PIN again." Updates an issue that, in certain cases, takes you out of the exclusive virtual reality (VR) app and back to Windows Mixed Reality Home when you press the Windows button on the controller. Updates an issue that causes blurry text on the news and interests button on the Windows taskbar for some screen resolutions. Updates an issue with Search box graphics on the Windows taskbar that occurs if you right-click the taskbar and turn off News and interests. This graphics issue is especially visible when using dark mode. Updates an issue that might prevent you from using your fingerprint to sign in after startup or waking up your device from sleep. And here is the complete changelog for the builds: Addresses an issue that causes communication between apps to stop working after you enable the “AppMgmt_COM_SearchForCLSID” policy. Addresses a performance issue in the MultiByteToWideChar() function that occurs when it is used in a non-English locale. Addresses an issue that prevents sorting from working properly when using multiple versions of National Language Support (NLS) sorting. Addresses an issue in a small subset of users that have lower than expected performance in games after installing KB5000842 or later. Addresses an issue that causes the Japanese Input Method Editor (IME) to suddenly stop working while you are typing. Addresses an issue that causes WMIMigrationPlugin.dll to return an error when you attempt to migrate in offline mode. Addresses an issue with the Set-RuleOption PowerShell command that fails to provide the option for the Windows Defender Application Control (WDAC) policy to treat files signed with an expired certificate as unsigned. Addresses an issue that causes Windows to stop working when it uses AppLocker to validate a file that has multiple signatures. The error is 0x3B. Addresses an issue that might cause BitLocker to go into recovery mode after updating the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) firmware. This occurs when the "Interactive logon: Machine account lockout Threshold" policy is set and there were incorrect password attempts. Addresses an issue that causes Windows to generate many AppLocker or SmartLocker success events. Addresses an issue with authenticating for a domain controller when Credential Guard and Remote Credential Guard are enabled. Addresses an issue that prevents certain screen reader apps from running when Hypervisor-protected code integrity (HVCI) is enabled. Addresses an issue in which signing in using a PIN fails. The error message is "Something happened and your PIN isn’t available. Click to set up your PIN again." Adds Windows support for System Management Mode protections (firmware protection version 2.0) for certain processors that support Secure Launch. Addresses an issue that, in certain cases, takes you out of the exclusive virtual reality (VR) app and back to Windows Mixed Reality Home when you press the Windows button on the controller. With this update, when you press the Windows button, the Windows Start menu appears. When you close the Start menu, you will go back to the exclusive VR app. Improves the accuracy and efficiency of sensitive data analysis in the Microsoft 365 Endpoint data loss prevention (DLP) Classification Engine. Addresses an issue with the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) VPN service on remote access server (RAS) servers. Periodically, users cannot connect a VPN to the server over the IKE protocol. This issue might start several hours or days after restarting the server or restarting the IKEEXT service. Some users can connect while many others cannot connect because the service is in DoS Protection mode, which limits incoming connection attempts. Addresses an issue that causes Wi-Fi connections to fail because of an invalid Message Integrity Check (MIC) on a four-way handshake if Management Frame Protection (MFP) is enabled. Addresses an issue that might cause a VPN to fail after renewing a user auto-enrolled certificate. The error message is "There are no more files". Addresses an issue with the Tunnel Extensible Authentication protocol (TEAP) that replaces the outer identity with “anonymous” even though identity privacy is not selected or is disabled. Addresses an issue that causes Remote Desktop sessions to stop responding while the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) is enabled. Adds support for the USB Test and Measurement Class. Addresses an issue in Adamsync.exe that affects the syncing of large Active Directory subtrees. Addresses an error that occurs when the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) bind cache is full, and the LDAP client library receives a referral. Addresses a redirector stop error that is caused by a race condition that occurs when the system deletes binding objects when connections close. Addresses an issue that prevents users from setting or querying disk quotas on the C drive. Addresses an issue that causes 16-bit apps that run on NT Virtual DOS Machine (NTVDM) to stop working when you open them. Addresses an issue that causes fontdrvhost.exe to stop working when Compact Font Format version 2 (CFF2) fonts are installed. Addresses an issue that might prevent End User Defined Characters (EUDC) from printing correctly because of font fallback settings. Addresses an issue that causes blurry text on the news and interests button on the Windows taskbar for some display configurations. Addresses an issue with Search box graphics on the Windows taskbar that occurs if you use the taskbar’s context menu to turn off News and interests. This graphics issue is especially visible when using dark mode. Addresses an issue that might cause signing in with your fingerprint to fail after the system starts up or resumes from sleep. These updates will show up in Windows Update as optional updates, giving users the choice to install them. Those who wish to skip these cumulative patches will be served the fixes along with other improvements as part of the Patch Tuesday update next month. That update will also include fixes for the installation issue for Xbox Game Pass titles. Latest Windows 10 updates bring gaming performance improvements and other fixes
  21. Microsoft Edge update makes switching between devices seamless Quickly send open tabs to your other devices to pick up where you left off Microsoft is rolling out a new update for its Edge browser that will allow users to easily pick up where they left off when switching between devices. The software giant's tab sharing feature has undergone months of testing on desktop and mobile in Edge's Canary Channel and now it will soon be available to users that aren't Microsoft Edge Insiders. Microsoft Edge's new tab sharing tool allows users to send tabs to different devices with just a few clicks so that they don't need to email a URL to themselves or go through their history to find a particular webpage in order to pick up where they left off. The company's tab sharing tool is now rolling out to a small group of users on Windows 10 and macOS though it will likely become available to all Edge users soon. Sharing tabs in Edge To test out Edge's tab sharing tool, you'll first need to open a webpage in the browser, click on the address bar and then select the “Send this page” option. Doing so will allow you to send the current webpage you're viewing to all of your support devices that are currently signed into your Microsoft account. The shared tab will then appear on the receiving device with a notification from Microsoft Edge that includes both the name and URL of the webpage. Alternatively, you can also right-click on any link in your address bar and select the device you want to share it with. It's worth noting that you will need to have Microsoft Edge installed on your other devices and be signed into your Microsoft account to take advantage of this feature. Since the release of Chromium-based Edge last year, Microsoft has continued to add new features to its browser. While tab sharing is a welcome addition to Edge, both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have allowed users to send tabs to other devices since 2019. Via Windows Latest Microsoft Edge update makes switching between devices seamless
