Version 102.0, first offered to Release channel users on June 28, 2022
 
some nice fixes
 
better Sandbox feature - "Improved security by moving audio decoding into a separate process with stricter sandboxing, thus improving process isolation."
 
Fixed screen reader - "When using a screen reader on Windows, pressing enter to activate an element no longer fails or clicks the wrong element and/or another application window. For those blind or with very limited vision, this technology reads out loud what is on the screen, and users can adapt them to their needs (now, on our platform, without errors)."
 
Many Security patches - 5 Rated High
 
Note Excerpts are in Quotes


Looks good.  Thanks.

Re: Firefox Updates new features & Important Security fixes 2022/09/07 06:03:44 (permalink)
The only thing I dislike with all modern os' and browers? Forced updates or constant nagging (without a way to turn it off that doesn't involve contortions (it should be a simple check box)) to update.
 
I'm tired of it.

AMD Ryzen 7900x3d
Deepcool LT720
Gigabyte Aorus Elite AX X670 (Might change..don't like this board)
eVGA GeForce RTX 3090 FTW3 Ultra Gaming (Hybrid kit on it)
Asus ROG Swift PG43UQ 4k Monitor
eVGA 1600W Supernova T2 PSU
32GB Kingston 6000 DDR5 (2x16GB) Fury
Corsair MP600 Pro 2TB (Boot)
Corsair MP600 2TB (Games/Data)

Looks like they removed Russian search engine Yandex and also Mail.ru.


I wonder why they did that?


My guess would be it was in support of Ukraine.

what dose a search engine have to do with Ukraine? am I missing something?  Is Yandex somehow involved? Seems odd to push an update down that only removed a Yandex and Mail.ru.


I have no idea if it does.  It was just a guess/theroy based on the timing and seeing what some other companies were doing as it related to Russia.

Wait so others are removing it too?


I'm talking about businesses as mentioned here > https://www.kiplinger.com/investing/stocks/604317/companies-pulled-out-of-russia
A quick search and you may find an even bigger list.

I'm really glad they fixed this.  I was used to launching FF and begin typing in the content area, not the address bar.
