Firefox 74.0, See All New Features, Updates and Fixes

  • Your login management has improved with the ability to reverse alpha sort (Name Z-A) in Lockwise.
  • Firefox now makes importing your bookmarks and history from the new Microsoft Edge browser on Windows and Mac simple.
  • Add-ons installed by external applications can now be removed using the Add-ons Manager (about:addons). Going forward, only users can install add-ons; they cannot be installed by an application.
  • Firefox now provides better privacy for your web voice and video calls through support for mDNS ICE by cloaking your computer’s IP address with a random ID in certain WebRTC scenarios.
  • When a video is uploaded with a batch of photos on Instagram, the Picture-in-Picture toggle would sit atop of the “next” button. The toggle is now moved allowing you to flip through to the next image of the batch.
  • On Windows, Ctrl+I can now be used to open the Page Info window instead of opening the Bookmarks sidebar. Ctrl+B still opens the Bookmarks sidebar.
  • We have disabled TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 to improve your website connections. Sites that don't support TLS version 1.2 will now show an error page.
  • Firefox has added support for the new JavaScript optional chaining operator (?.) and CSS text-underline-position.

Firefox 76.0, See All New Features, Updates and Fixes

  • Firefox displays critical alerts in the Lockwise password manager when a website is breached;
  • If one of your accounts is involved in a website breach and you've used the same password on other websites, you will now be prompted to update your password. A key icon identifies which accounts use that vulnerable password.
  • Automatically generate secure, complex passwords for new accounts across more of the web that are easily saved right in the browser;
  • You have been able to access and see your saved passwords under Logins and Passwords easily under the main menu. If your device happens to be shared among your family or roommates, the latest update helps to prevent casual snooping over your shoulder. If you don’t have a master password set up for Firefox, Windows and macOS now requires a login to your operating system account before showing your saved passwords.
  • Picture-in-Picture allows you to multitask, the small video window following along no matter what you are doing on your computer, across different applications and even workspaces. Now, when you are ready to focus on the video, a double click can take the small window into full screen. Double click again to reduce the size again.
  • Firefox now supports Audio Worklets that will allow more complex audio processing like VR and gaming on the web; and is being adopted by some of your favorite software programs. With this change, you can now join Zoom calls on Firefox without the need for any additional downloads.
  • WebRender continues its roll out to more Firefox for Windows users, now available by default on modern Intel laptops with a small screen (<= 1920x1200) for improved graphics rendering.

For some reason, Nightly is not working properly at my end. It doesn't open any url. lol.

And it doesn't close unless I force close it via Task Manager.
