Firefox 85 arrives partitioning the network, firing Flash Player and these other news

Firefox 85

Four weeks ago, Mozilla launched the v84 from your browser Web. It was a version that I don't know whether to say important or just interesting, since it started activating WebRender on Linux and was the last to support Flash Player. A few moments ago, the launch of Firefox 85, and this is an important delivery, at least for those of us who are concerned about privacy and do not want big technology to collect so much information about us.

Today a new anti-tracking function, making it even more difficult for web pages to communicate with each other. As of Firefox 85, and as Chrome already did (who I trust less ...), the fox browser will separate preferences, among other things, by web page, instead of doing it in a general way. What will remain on each website without the possibility of communicating with others are the HTTP caches, images, favicon, page style, CA Intermedia sources, CORS-preflight and other information such as connection pools, DNS, HTTP authentication, Alt-Svc , speculative connections, HSTS, OCSP, TLS certificates, TLS session identifiers, pre-connections and preloads.

At Mozilla, we believe that you have a right to privacy. It should not be tracked online. Whether you're checking your bank balance, searching for the best doctor, or shopping for shoes, unscrupulous tracking companies shouldn't be able to track you while you're surfing the web. For that reason, we continually work to fortify Firefox against online tracking of our users.

Highlights of Firefox 85

  • Firefox now protects you from supercookies, a type of tracker that can remain hidden in your browser and track you online, even after you delete cookies. By isolating supercookies, Firefox prevents them from tracking your web browsing from one site to another.
  • It's easier than ever to save and access your bookmarks. Firefox now remembers your preferred location for saved bookmarks, displays the bookmarks toolbar by default on new tabs, and gives you easy access to all your bookmarks via a toolbar folder.
  • Password manager now allows you to delete all your saved logins with one click, instead of having to delete each login individually.
  • Removed Flash Player.
  • Various security fixes.

Firefox 85 It is now available for all supported systems from the Mozilla download page, which we can access from this link. Users who have the browser installed from official repositories, we will see the update in the next few hours. A Flatpak and Snap pack are also available, although Canonical's will take a bit longer to update.
