Firefox 89 is out. The biggest change is the new UI. I like it but I've read a lot of negative opinions about it.

      Mozilla launches Firefox 95 with RLBox and Site Isolation for added security
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has launched Firefox 95 bringing several security and performance improvements such as RLBox and Site Isolation. There also some bug fixes that improve the speed of content process startup on macOS and memory allocation on all platforms.

      The major change in Firefox 95 is RLBox, which we discussed yesterday. This leverages WebAssembly to harden Firefox against security vulnerabilities in third-party libraries. RLBox did ship to Linux and Mac users on desktop a while ago but now it’s available on all platforms across desktop and mobile.

      On macOS, Firefox 95 comes with reduced CPU usage which should improve the stability of your Mac. Additionally, the browser’s power usage on macOS has been reduced when software-decoded videos are played, especially in fullscreen. If you access sites like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, you should see reduced power usage thanks to this change.

      RLBox is not the only security enhancement in Firefox 95, Mozilla says it has enabled Site Isolation for all users which helps protect against side-channel attacks like Spectre.

      Finally, if you use Picture-in-Picture on video streaming websites, it’s now possible to move the button to the other side of the video by looking for the new context menu option, Move Picture-in-Picture Toggle to Left (Right) Side.

      If you already run Firefox, your browser should automatically update in the coming days. If you don’t have it yet, head to the Microsoft Store now to install it or grab it from Mozilla’s website.

      Firefox 95 will include RLBox sandboxing for added security
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has announced through its Mozilla Hacks blog that it plans to ship a ‘novel sandboxing technology’ called RLBox with Firefox 95 which it has been developing alongside researchers from the University of California San Diego and the University of Texas. It said RLBox makes it easier to isolate subcomponents of the browser efficiently and gives Mozilla more options than traditional sandboxing granted it.

      Mozilla said this new method of sandboxing, which uses WebAssembly to isolate potentially-buggy code, builds on a prototype that was shipped in Firefox 74 and Firefox 75 to Linux and Mac users respectively. With Firefox 95, RLBox will be deployed on all supported Firefox platforms including desktop and mobile to isolate three different modules: Graphite, Hunspell, and Ogg. With Firefox 96, two more modules, Expat and Woff2, will also be isolated.

      Commenting on the next steps for RLBox, Mozilla engineer Bobby Holley said:

      It should also be noted that the company has updated its bug bounty program so that researchers are paid for bypassing the sandbox even if there are no vulnerabilities in the isolated library; this will help tighten up the browser’s security further. If you’d like to learn more of the technical aspects behind RLBox, be sure to check out the Mozilla Hacks post.

      LibreWolf 94.0.2-3
      by Razvan Serea



      LibreWolf is an independent “fork” of Firefox, with the primary goals of privacy security and user freedom. It is the community run successor to LibreFox.

      LibreWolf is designed to minimize data collection and telemetry as much as possible. This is achieved through hundreds of privacy/security/performance settings and patches. Intrusive integrated addons including updater, crashreporter, and pocket are removed too.

      LibreWolf features:

      Latest Firefox — LibreWolf is compiled directly from the latest build of Firefox Stable. You will have the the latest features, and security updates. Independent Build — LibreWolf uses a build independent of Firefox and has its own settings, profile folder and installation path. As a result, it can be installed alongside Firefox or any other browser. No phoning home — Embedded server links and other calling home functions are removed. In other words, minimal background connections by default. User settings updates Extensions firewall: limit internet access for extensions. - Multi-platform (Windows/Linux/Mac/and soon Android) Community-Driven Dark theme (classic and advanced) Download: LibreWolf 94.0.2-3 | Portable | Other Operating Systems ~70.0 MB (Open Source)
