Mozilla releases Firefox 59 with faster load times and improved privacy

Building a slide deck, pitch, or presentation?

The Mozilla Foundation has released a new version of Firefox today that can prevent some websites from asking to send notifications to your device, as reported by Ars Technica.

Firefox 59 has been released to the general public, and with it come numerous privacy improvements. From here you can individually manage your permissions for location, camera, microphone, and notifications.

Mozilla's new Firefox 59 is now available for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android devices. The recent update from Firefox allows Youtube to feature in Amazon Fire TV and other features like syncing.

You can find the option to block those intrusive messages by opening the Settings menu (the button that looks like three horizontal lines), selecting Preferences, and then opening the Privacy And Security panel.

For privacy, Firefox 59 made several improvements to Private Browsing Mode.

OPEC says U.S. oil production to rise again in 2018
If the markets remain rangebound then the hedge funds may start to move money out of crude oil and into more active markets. Output from the US has already risen by 23 percent since mid-2016 to 10.37 million barrels per day (bpd).

Not only can these referrers show from which site users came from, but they can also contain sensitive information about the user. Keep in mind that this doesn't apply to browsing outside of Private Browsing Mode.

New features for Firefox Screenshots include basic annotation and cropping that allow the user to draw on, highlight, or change the viewable area of screenshots.

Firefox performance has been enhanced by changing the way pages load.

The new update comes with improved speed by means of loading from the networked cache or from the user hard drive's cache, according to the release notes. This is, Moz sez, the "final step towards bringing a release version of Firefox Quantum to enterprise users" (that's generally what betas are, but hey).

Apple users will experience improvised graphics by employing Off-Main-Thread Painting (OMTP). Mozilla has also accommodated the pages in such a way that they offer more control over calls and this is achieved by using improved Real-Time Communications (RTC) capabilities. Firefox will begin checking for and downloading applicable updates immediately.
