Firefox is getting a new Get Add-ons page. With version 48, the browser comes with a different add-ons page which is more clear at introducing what themes and extensions are. It also has a live preview with videos.
I would like to share with you a cool trick for Mozilla Firefox which can increase your productivity and save your time. While surfing the web, you sometimes wish to share something with your friends by taking a screenshot of it. But it takes several steps to take a screenshot of the whole page, save it, crop it etc. In this article, we will see how to directly take a screenshot of a specific element on a web page without using add-ons.
Prior to version 47, Firefox had the ability to disable the default lazy tab loading behavior. The user had a choice to load only the active tab when Firefox opens or load all tabs at once in the background. With Firefox 47, this option was removed from the browser's Preferences. If you need to load all your tabs when Firefox 47 starts, here is how it can be done.
Yet another useful feature is coming to Mozilla Firefox. With Firefox 49 and above, it is possible to print web pages in simplified mode, where all the unnecessary elements will be stripped from the web page to clean it up and save printing resources. This will make the main content on the page more suitable for reading. For those who do not even wish to print the rest of the clutter, this is an extremely useful feature.
Recently, a new Containers feature was introduced in the Mozilla Firefox browser. If you found no use for this feature, you can easily disable it. Here is how to do that.
A new feature, called "Containers", has recently landed in Mozilla Firefox Nightly builds. With this new feature, you get a set of private tabs in addition to private windows which exist in current versions of the browser. Containers isolate tabs from each other so you can be logged in to two different user accounts for the same website, for example.
Vivaldi is a new browser from former developers of classic Opera 12.x. Vivaldi comes with a lot of innovative and exclusive features not present in mainstream browsers. One such feature is colorful tabs. Vivaldi is able to apply the dominant color of the opened page to the tab which is open and to its frame. VivaldiFox is a Firefox add-on which adds the same feature to Mozilla Firefox.
Firefox 50, which is currently in early development on the Nightly channel, will come with an improved search user interface. The browser will provide a new Ctrl + F behavior and look.
Following the release of Firefox 48 beta, Mozilla developers also announced the list of changes we can expect for Firefox 49. Let's see what they are.
Earlier, we noted that developers are going to enable multiprocess mode, known as process-per-tab or electrolysis (e10s) for 1% of users who do not use add-ons. Unlike the release version, Firefox 48 beta comes with electrolysis enabled for everyone.
