Mozilla has released the latest feature update for the Firefox browser. The official version 102 is now available to all users in the stable channel, with improved download UI, better support for picture-in-picture subtitles, various fixes, and security improvements.
Here’s what’s in the Firefox 102 update
- Tired of too many windows cramming your screen? You can now disable the automatic opening of the download panel every time you start a new download.
- Firefox mitigates query parameter tracking when browsing websites in ETP strict mode.
- Picture-in-picture (PiP) subtitles are now available on HBO Max, Funimation, Dailymotion, Tubi, Disney+ Hotstar, and SonyLIV. Users can view videos in small windows pinned to the corner of the screen while navigating between apps or browsing content on the home screen.
- Pressing Enter to activate an element no longer fails when using a screen reader on Windows. For users who are blind or have very limited vision, the technology can read what’s on the screen aloud, which the user can adjust to their needs.
Various security fixes.
- Improved process isolation by moving audio decoding into a separate process with tighter sandboxing.
- Style sheets can now be filtered in the style editor tab of the dev tools.
Firefox 102 is also available in the Extended Support Release channel, replacing Firefox 91. It includes all functional changes, improvements, and fixes implemented by Mozilla since the stable release of Firefox 91. Users can download Firefox from the official website. Windows users can also get the browser from the Microsoft Store.
