You can enable or disable the Close Tab confirmation in Firefox 94 thanks to the new option added to the browser. In a document on the official Mozilla Support website, Firefox developers revealed that Firefox 94 and newer versions of the browser no longer display the Close Tab warnings.
Before Microsoft released Windows 11, the Software giant allowed only EdgeHTML-based browsers in the Microsoft Store. Now, with Edge Legacy and its proprietary engine being six feet under, Microsoft embraces Chromium and eases off rules in its store. To bring more customers and developers to the Microsoft Store, Microsoft allowed publishing third-party browsers with various engines (there are many other new policies, such as permission to use custom payment systems, CDNs, unpackaged apps, third-party stores, more). As a result, we see developers bringing popular browsers to the Microsoft Store, providing users with an easy and trustworthy place to get their favorite apps.
Mozilla released a new version of its browser. Firefox 93 has become available for download on October 5, 2021, the same day Microsoft released Windows 11. Despite the version number change, it is hard to call this release a major update to the browser. Most changes are fixes and general improvements.
Not so long ago, Mozilla introduced a fully redesigned UI for the Firefox browser, called Proton UI. After shipping Proton UI to the public, Mozilla Foundation continues working on the visual aspect of its browser. In Firefox 95, which is currently available in the Nightly channel, users can select several new colorful themes.
Firefox comes with the Google search engine by default in many countries. This may change soon. Mozilla is currently testing the default search engine set to Microsoft Bing and how it will affect Firefox users.
While there is no argument that Microsoft Edge is a decent modern browser with great features and solid performance, everyone seems sick of Microsoft trying to force everyone to use it. Windows 10 is well-known for its shady practices and random resets of default apps, and in Windows 11, Microsoft takes that to a higher level with a messy default app system. Now, instead of using a single switch to select the default browser (one more click to dismiss Microsoft's plea to try Edge), users need to pick a browser for eleven different web formats.
Mozilla has released Firefox 92 to the stable branch. You won't a lot of new features in this version. Instead, there are performance improvements made to the accessibility tools, security fixes, and a few improvements for Mac users.
A post on BugZilla exposes a bug in the Firefox browser that may affect its performance in a bad way. A memory leak in accessibility services causes the slowdowns, noticeable on web sites like Facebook.
Mozilla plans to launch Firefox 92 during the first week of September 2021. One of the changes in the upcoming release is additional download protections. Firefox 92 will follow Google's recent improvements that make sure a browser warns users about potentially unsafe downloads over an insecure connection.
You can disable Firefox Suggest in Firefox address bar if you are not happy to see promoted search suggestions each time you type a query. Mozilla started testing a new feature in Firefox that pushes sponsored posts as you type your search request in the address bar.
