Firefox 115 is out with individual extensions, import of payment methods and more
FIREFOX 115 IS OUT
Today, July 4, Mozilla officially released Firefox 115 and Firefox 115 ERS. The second is an extended support version of the browser designed for use in organizations. Firefox 115 will be the last version to support Windows 7, Windows 8 and 8.1 operating systems, as well as some macOS.
The most curious innovation was the ability to run only some of the extensions that Mozilla monitors on Internet resources. According to GHacks, there is very little information about the new feature. The developers briefly mentioned it on the support page, stating that it is for security purposes.
You can activate it as follows:
enter about:config in the address bar;
click on the “Accept the risks and continue” button if a corresponding message is displayed;
find the parameter extensions.quarantinedDomains.enabled and set the value to False (“False”);
restart your internet browser.
Other changes and innovations:
when switching from another browser based on the Chromium engine, users can import payment methods into Firefox if they were saved in the old web browser;
optimized interface for importing data from other browsers;
the browser now uses hardware video decoding on Linux systems based on Intel processors;
developers returned to using the Cisco PpenH264 module in systems that do not support H264;
Windows OS users with “low performance/USB drivers and Wi-Fi” can enable geolocation on a case-by-case basis, keeping the whole system running smoothly;
password fields received support for undo and redo operations;
Firefox color themes are automatically migrated to the same theme hosted in the Mozilla add-on repository.
