With Firefox 108.0 and Firefox 102.6 ESR, Mozilla has released two new versions of its popular open source browser for Windows, macOS and Linux. Background tabs now use Windows 11’s efficiency mode and the WebMIDI API for musicians, a new experimental mechanism.
Firefox 108.0 and Firefox 102.6 ESR released
Exactly one month after the release of Firefox 107.0 and the extended support release Firefox 102.5 ESR, on which the new Tor Browser 12.0 is also based, the developers of Mozilla Foundation Firefox 108.0 and Firefox 102.6 ESR released for download. Even if the official release notes haven’t been published yet, the editors have already made the changes.
Updated WebMIDI tabs and background
In addition to improvements to the WebMIDI API, which makes it easier for musicians to use online MIDI tools, and Background Tabs, which now use Efficiency Mode within Windows 11 to save resources, more changes are included in the release.
Of particular note is the support for correct color correction of images marked with the corresponding ICCv4 profiles, as well as the improvement of the process manager, which now also provides the option to identify and terminate resource-intensive processes.
