Mozilla today released the latest version of its flagship web browser, Firefox 96, adding several new features and fixes.

New features include:

  • Significant improvements in noise suppression and auto-gain-control as well as slight improvements in echo-cancellation to provide users with a better overall audio experience.
  • Significantly reduced main-thread load.
  • Firefox now provides a solid first line of defense against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks by enforcing the “Cookie Policy: Same-Site=lax” policy by default

Fixes include:

  • On macOS, command-clicking links in Gmail now opens them in a new tab as expected.
  • Fixes an issue where video intermittently drops SSRC.
  • Fixes an issue where WebRTC downgrades screen sharing resolution to provide users with a clearer browsing experience.
  • Fixes video quality degradation issues on certain sites.
  • Detached video in full screen on macOS has been temporarily disabled to avoid some issues with corruption, brightness changes, missing subtitles, and high CPU usage.
  • Various security fixes.

You can download Firefox 96 from the Mozilla website.
