Mozilla has just released a new version of Firefox browser, bringing the app to build 105 on all supported platforms.
Needless to say, Firefox 105 comes with lots of improvements, and one of the biggest additions concerns the printing task. Beginning with this version, users can finally print only the current page from print preview dialog.
Then, when users rely on touch input in the browser, they can now swipe to navigate using two fingers on a touchpad – swipe left to go back and swipe right to go forward.
Mozilla says it has also included additional improvements in this update:
“Firefox is now compliant with the User Timing L3 specification, which adds additional optional arguments to the performance.mark and performance.measure methods to provide custom start times, end times, duration, and attached details. Searching in large lists for individual items is now 2x faster. This performance enhancement replaces array.includes and array.indexOf with an optimized SIMD version,” the company says.
Firefox 105 now available on all supported platforms
And of course, as it happens with every Firefox update, Mozilla has included additional stability improvements and refinements, as well as new security fixes to make sure users are protected while running the browser.
- Stability on Windows is significantly improved as Firefox handles low-memory situations much better.
- Touchpad scrolling on macOS was made more accessible by reducing unintended diagonal scrolling opposite of the intended scroll axis.
- Firefox is less likely to run out of memory on Linux and performs more efficiently for the rest of the system when memory runs low.
- Various security fixes.
The new Firefox 105 is now available for download either manually or using the built-in auto-update engine that allows users to automatically get the latest version of the application without any further action.
