The Firefox/Mozilla Thread

By the end of 2017, and with the release of Firefox 57, we’ll move to WebExtensions exclusively, and will stop loading any other extension types on desktop. To help ensure any new extensions work beyond the end of 2017, AMO will stop accepting any new extensions for signing that are not WebExtensions in Firefox 53.

Whoopee <_<

 

Oh the contradictions. They'll kill off a bunch of addons, and make them impossible to replicate, whilst claiming they'll "add capabilities to Firefox that don’t yet exist in other browsers". Riiiight, so you're gonna remove current capabilities that aren't present in other browsers, so you can ADD capabilities that aren't present in other browsers :rolleyes: Pretty much sums up the clueless, focusless, direction Mozilla have been heading the last couple of years.

50.0.2 sounds like one of those "if you browse pr0n" scares. Really, I'm not all over the internet like I used to be in 2000. The sites I visit nowadays are seasoned. Like Piriform.

Referenced bug primarily affects Tor users by forcing their actual IP to be exposed to an external server (instead of the Tor exit node IP)

Ctrl-Tab to cycle through tabs has stopped working at some point recently, anyone else had similar and have any clues on how to fix it??? (it's not an addon stealing the key combo as it doesn't work in FF safe mode either)

JD,

 

If you are using Win 10 have you tried a ''restart'' of your machine?

No, win7. And yes, I have.

Seems it wasn't a FF specific issue, ctrl-tab wasn't working anywhere. Kinda sorted now (ctrl-tab fixed, but discovered a few shortcuts aren't working as they should, so still nailing down what's going on)

Does anybody know why Firefox 50.1.0 now opens 2 processes when launched?

 

If you look in task manager it opens as an Application and as a background process at the same time.

I've never seen this with previous versions, it used to just open as an application.

(And no, I have not changed anything in the settings, no new add-ons or extensions, it just seems to do it on it's own).

 

It's not a problem, I'm just curious.

 

Windows 10 Home, version 1607, build 14393.693

Thanks for that hazelnut,

so it's now using a different process for the UI than for the page content.

 

Don't realy see the point unless you are constantly visiting dodgy pages that crash all the time, but presumably it's been done for a reason.

for xp users with old PC´s like Athlon XP or Pentium III ...

Your hardware is no longer supported

If your computer has a processor older than Pentium 4, Firefox version 49 and above is no longer supported.

 

If Firefox is already installed on your computer, you can continue using it but you will not receive updates beyond version 48. If you download Firefox version 49 or above and try to install it, you will see the message, Firefox cannot be installed. This version of Firefox requires a processor with SSE2 support.

 

Like many programs, newer versions of Firefox require a processor that supports Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2) for better security and performance. We recommend a computer with a Pentium 4 or newer processor that supports SSE2 to use the latest version of Firefox, which has more features, stability and security.

 

Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) will continue to work with older processors but will not receive updates beyond ESR version 45. Firefox ESR version 52, scheduled for release in March 2017, will no longer be supported.

Ihre Hardware wird nicht mehr unterstützt

Wenn der Prozessor Ihres Rechners älter ist als Pentium 4, werden die Versionen ab Firefox 49 nicht mehr unterstützt.

 

Ist Firefox bereits auf Ihrem Rechner installiert, können Sie ihn weiterhin nutzen, jedoch werden Sie keine Updates über Version 48 hinaus erhalten. Wenn Sie versuchen, Firefox 49 oder höher herunterzuladen und zu installieren, erhalten Sie den Hinweis: „Firefox kann nicht installiert werden. Diese Version von Firefox benötigt einen Prozessor mit SSE2 Unterstützung.”

 

Wie viele andere Programme erfordert Firefox zur höheren Sicherheit und besseren Leistung einen Prozessor, der Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2) unterstützt. Wir empfehlen die Verwendung eines Rechners mit einem Pentium 4 Prozessor oder höher und SSE2-Unterstützung, damit Sie weiterhin die aktuellen Versionen von Firefox mit zusätzlichen Funktionen sowie mehr Stabilität und Sicherheit nutzen können.

 

ESR (Extended Support Release) kann weiterhin mit älteren Prozessoren verwendet werden, erhält jedoch keine Updates über die ESR Version 45 hinaus. Die Version Firefox ESR 52, deren Veröffentlichung für März 2017 geplant ist, wird nicht mehr unterstützt.
