Firefox 56.0 Released September 28, 2017

Updates No Comments »

Version 56.0, first offered to Release channel users on September 28, 2017

Today’s release gives Firefox users a better experience with features like Firefox Screenshots, Send Tabs, and more control over the browser with an improved (and searchable) preferences section. It also includes incremental performance improvements that move us closer to our biggest release of the year, coming in November.

We’d like to extend a special thank you to all of the new Mozillians who contributed to this release of Firefox!

New

  • Launched Firefox Screenshots, a feature that lets users take, save, and share screenshots without leaving the browser
  • Added support for address form autofill (en-US only)
  • Updated Preferences
    • Added search tool so users can find a specific setting quickly
    • Reorganized preferences so users can more easily scan settings
    • Rewrote descriptions so users can better understand choices and how they affect browsing
    • Revised data collection choices so they align with updated Privacy Notice and data collection strategy
  • Media opened in a background tab will not play until the tab is selected
  • Improved Send Tabs feature of Sync for iOS and Android, and Send Tabs can be discovered even by users without a Firefox Account

Changed

  • Replaced character encoding converters with a new Encoding Standard-compliant implementation written in Rust
  • Added hardware acceleration for AES-GCM
  • Updated the Safe Browsing protocol to version 4
  • Reduced update download file size by approximately 20 percent
  • Improved security for verifying update downloads

Developer

Developer Information

unresolved

  • Startup crash with RelevantKnowledge adware installed. Firefox Support has helpful instructions to remove it.
  • Users running Firefox for Windows over a Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) may find that audio playback is disabled due to increased security restrictions. Learn how to mitigate this issue until it is corrected in an upcoming release
  • Startup crashes with 64-bit Firefox on Windows 7, for users of Lenovo’s “OneKey Theater” software for IdeaPad laptops. To fix this crash, please re-install 32-bit Firefox.
  • Due to a bug in Mac OS X High Sierra, fullscreen mode has some issues

Pale Moon 27.5.0 Released September 26, 2017

News, Updates No Comments »

Pale Moon: Release notes

27.5.0 (2017-09-26)

This is a major update furthering general development of the browser.

Changes/fixes:

    • User interface:
      • Added a menu option to restart the browser.
      • Added Windows-specific CSS parameters and queries for the
        use of the system accent color. Added are parameters -moz-win-accentcolor
        and -moz-win-accentcolortext, and the media query -moz-win-accentcolor-applies
        to know if Windows is actively using an accent color.
      • Changed Windows’ browser CSS sheet ot use variables
        instead
        of hard-coding colors, simplifying its style and making it more
        flexible. Further cleaned up the Windows 10 specific browser style.
      • Changed the theme on Windows 10 to use the new accent
        colors and improve O.S. consistency.
      • Fixed some general inconsistencies in the Windows theme
        on all Windows operating systems.
      • Updated Windows widgets to be able to pick up Windows 10
        accent colors dynamically and have the browser ‘s look and feel respond
        accordingly, even with automatic color changes based on desktop
        wallpaper.
      • Removed the experimental FF4 prerelease
        status-in-addressbar feature because the already-crowded address bar
        needs a break. This should solve some extension interop issues, theme
        issues and domain highlighting issues people have reported.
      • Cleaned up some dead code for the plugin updater that no
        longer exists.
      • Fixed a text direction issue in preferences.
      • Fixed an issue with disabled context menu entries after
        using Customize…
      • Reorganized and cleaned up the status preferences.
    • Media:
      • MSE Media updates (ongoing). We are focusing on improving
        MP4 handling.
      • Improved MP3 metadata parsing (e.g. incorrect duration
        with embedded album cover)
      • Fixed a number
        of searching issues in MP3 files
      • Fixed a few crashes.
    • Fixed an issue with automatically exporting bookmarks to
      HTML on shutdown.
    • Fixed a regression re: domains allowed to/blocked from
      installing add-ons.
    • Fixed several internal errors thrown in the front-end.
    • Fixed several minor issues in the devtools.
    • Added a fix to prevent the home page from being loaded (and
      subsequently overridden) when restoring a session.
    • Added an option to control add-on blocklist behavior
      (Options -> Security)
    • Added DOM function isSameNode().
    • Added DOM onvisibilitychange event.
    • Added document.scrollingelement (CSSOM).
    • Added a basic implementation of Object.values
      and Object.entries
      enumerator functions
      (ECMA2017 draft).
    • Added “Open in new private window” to bookmarks, feeds and
      history entries.
    • Added HTTP request method OPTIONS.
    • Added an option to exit to a no-content page after
      encountering a network or security error.
      This is controlled with the preference browser.escape_to_blank
      — when set to true, “Get me out of here” buttons will
      load a blank page instead of the browser’s home page.
    • Added experimental Brotli accept-encoding (alternative
      to gzip/deflate compressed http data
      transfer). Disabled by default for now because it causes issues.
    • Improved the handling of several CSS selectors.
    • Changed session storage to remember form data for https
      sites by default.
    • Added (yet another) trap prevention method to
      onbeforeunload events.
    • Fixed privacy preferences not correctly resetting all
      options when choosing “Remember History”
    • Fixed not being able to deselect loading bookmarks in the
      sidebar.
    • Limited the display of user names and hosts in the http
      auth dialog to sane lengths, preventing over-sizing issues.
    • Fixed a number of potential crash points.
    • Improved the security of the Windows dll loader module.
    • Reinstated “Open all in tabs” option on folders of live
      bookmarks (feeds).
    • Made URL matching more liberal in selected text to make it
      easier to open stated addresses.
    • Fixed an issue with Graphite font rendering where automatic
      font collision fixing didn’t always work.
    • Color Management for images is now disabled by default on
      Linux, due to many distributions not having a streamlined setup with
      sane default ICC profiles, which makes images look worse when color
      management is enabled.
    • Tightened the update security check to prevent acceptance
      of update manifests that have been intercepted/replaced through https
      MitM attacks.
      Please be aware that https-filtering antivirus may interfere with
      future application updates as a result.
    • Updated the ANGLE library to broaden WebGL support and
      reduce the potential of crashes (due to junk being sent to the video
      driver).
    • Added content-sniffing for WebP images (working around
      CloudFront’s incorrect content-type headers).
    • Fixed a problem with some H.264 media not playing (SPS NAL).
    • Improved timer efficiency (switch back to lower precision
      when high precision is no longer needed, reducing CPU/power
      consumption).
    • Improved context search on selected text/links.
    • Updated address bar handling with Alt or Shift modifiers,
      so that “switch to tab” with a modifier can open copies of
      already-opened sites.
    • Added a fix on Linux for starting the browser from
      Enlightenment.
    • Privacy fix: Pale Moon will now clear QuotaManager storage
      (asm.js
      cache/IndexedDB data) as part of clearing Offline Website Data.
