Release Notes: Firefox Release Notes

New

Today’s Firefox release includes two features that help users view and read website content more easily, quickly. Like all accessibility improvements, these features improve browsing for everyone.
  • Firefox has offered a page zoom feature for more than a decade that allows users to set the zoom level on a per-site basis. For users who need to zoom most websites, having to adjust zoom for each new site can be an annoyance. To address this, we have implemented a new global default zoom level setting. This option is available in aboutreferences under "Language and Appearance" and can be scaled up or down from 100% as needed and sets the default zoom level for all sites. Per-site zoom is still available to make adjustments to individual sites as needed.
  • Many users with low vision rely on Windows' High Contrast Mode to make websites more readable. Traditionally, to increase the readability of text, Firefox has disabled background images when High Contrast Mode is enabled. With today’s release of Firefox 73, we introduce a “readability backplate” solution which places a block of background color between the text and background image. Now, websites in High Contrast Mode are more readable without disabling background images.
Fixed
  • Various security fixes.
  • Improved audio quality when playing back audio at a faster or slower speed.
  • Firefox will now only prompt you to save logins if a field in a login form was modified.
Changed
  • WebRender will roll out to laptops with Nvidia graphics cards with drivers newer than 432.00, and screen sizes smaller than 1920x1200.
Developer
  • Developer Information
  • WAMP-formatted WebSocket messages (JSON, MsgPack and CBOR) are now nicely decoded for inspection in the Network panel.
Web Platform
  • Improved auto-detection of legacy text encodings on old web pages which don’t explicitly declare the text encoding.
unresolved
  • Users with 0patch security software may encounter crashes at startup after updating to Firefox 73. This will be fixed in a future Firefox release. As a workaround, an exclusion for firefox.exe can be added within the 0patch settings.

Installed it on 11/05/2015. No issues so far with my OS. v42.0.1 on Android is another story though. Crashes and stalls a lot.

Well, I must congratulate Mozilla Team, this version is way better than previous iterations, now HTML5 is more stable, yah, my VGA is still blacklisted, but you just tweak a pair of config values, and [email protected] videos play smoothly. In general, the browser feels less sluggish.

Well done Mozilla!

New versions and updates every day now? I just installed FF ESR 38.5.2 and now a new version
43.0.2. I know that is a complete new version install but still, why go through this almost daily lately?

Well that screwed it up pretty well so off to reinstall my previous version.

Now back to where I was with all addons I put in enabled just as I like.
Security be damned but I ain't achang'n again.

FF v43.0.2 installed on 12/23/15. No issues with anything, including plugins and addons. Even seems to load a bit quicker.

If everyone's system was configured the same then the same success or failure rate would be the same.
But still it is amazing how some software can accommodate so many varieties of hardware and
configurations of addons and such. I just don't have the patience to fix something that ain't broke.
