[News] Mozilla Firefox Rolls Out New Version for Android After A Year of previews

Assalamu Alaikum, Dear Mi Fans
Greetings from Mi Community Bangladesh Tech Team. Mozilla Firefox is among the most popular alternatives to Google Chrome for both mobile devices and desktops. Mozilla has been working on a brand new version of Firefox for Android, nicknamed 'Fenix,' for over a year at this point. The new codebase slowly trickled down from Preview to Beta, and at long last, the aging stable browser is now receiving the update.

Mozilla for Android entered the maintenance phase to focus on developing an entirely new version without a new codebase instead of updating the existing one. Firefox for Android hasn’t received a major update since July last year and is now making a jump straight from version 68 to 79. Compared to the older version, there's a more modern interface with a bottom address bar, an updated GeckoView engine with improved performance, more privacy options, Collections (tab groups), dark mode support, and other changes.

Changelog:
  • New Tabs Tray.
  • Perform voice searches from the address bar.
  • Icon now shows up in the address bar when Reader mode is available.
  • More add-on support.
  • Enhanced Tracking Protection is set to Strict by default.
  • You can now sort your logins by name or last-used date.


Among the new feature, Firefox 79 for Android brings a clean and modern UI. The codebase and thus, the functionality is the same as the Preview builds but one feature that’s lacking on the stable build is proper support for add-ons. That's a significant downgrade, even if the handful of supported options are some of the most popular choices. Here's the full list:
  • uBlock Origin
  • Dark Reader
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • Privacy Badger
  • NoScript Security Suite
  • Decentraleyes
  • Search by Image
  • YouTube High Definition
  • Privacy Possum

While this isn't a complete surprise, it is disappointing that the extension ecosystem on Firefox on Android is now minuscule. While it is understandable that the complete migration of add-ons to the new codebase requires time, release without proper support is bound to disappoint those who like to use specific extensions avidly. If you want to continue using those add-ons, you may have to stick to the older version of Firefox for Android. But if you’re among those who want a cleaner and faster browser experience, you can go ahead. Firefox v79 is now rolling out on the Google Play Store.
