Today we have some amazing news to share with Firefox Browser fans! The developers of the mobile browser have released a brand-new update and it is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels to all Firefox Browser fans who use Android-powered smartphones. Therefore, the only requirement to access the new update is to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
Firefox Browser 79.0.5 Update
The first thing that we want to mention about the new update is that it sports the 79.0.5 version number. The update is scheduled to pop up in the notification panels of all Firefox Browser fans who use Android-powered smartphones and have access to a stable Wi-Fi network.
Alternatively, the new update can be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK (Android Package Kit). However, installing this type of update is a bit tricky since users are first required to enable the “Unknown Sources” option in their smartphone’s Settings panel.
Some Firefox Browser fans might be disappointed to find out that the new update doesn’t come with any exciting features, but fortunately, the update makes up for that by introducing a bundle of bug fixes. Thanks to this, the overall performances and software stability of Firefox Browser are being improved. The mobile browser is going to run much smoother and it will no longer crash.
Since we are talking about the top level performances that Firefox Browser offers, let’s go ahead and take a look at the top features that the mobile browser has to offer:
FAST. PRIVATE. SAFE.
Firefox is faster than ever and gives you a powerful web browser that protects your privacy. Keep what’s personal private with Enhanced Tracking Protection, which automatically blocks over 2000 online trackers from invading your privacy.
With Firefox, you don’t have to dig in your privacy settings, everything is set up automatically, but if you like to be in control, you can choose from the many ad blocker add-ons available for the browser. We designed Firefox with smart browsing features that let you take your privacy, passwords, and bookmarks with you safely wherever you go.
