Mozilla usually delivers new main versions of its popular browser every month. Firefox 104 was released in August 2022 and brought minor improvements such as subtitles in picture-in-picture mode for Disney+ videos. Now Firefox 105 is here. The new version includes several small but useful improvements and bug fixes. Here comes the overview
Firefox 105: what’s new
Starting with version 105, Firefox offers the option to print only the current page from the print preview dialog.
Swipe-to-navigate (swipe left or right with two fingers on a touchpad to skip forward or backward in history) is now enabled on Windows.
Searching in large lists is now twice as fast as before.
Firefox is now supposed to run much more stably on Windows since the developers have improved the handling of low memory.
On Linux, Firefox now works more efficiently when running out of disk space. And the probability of running out of memory should be lower – according to the release notes.
On top of that, the developers list seven closed vulnerabilities in the security instructions for Firefox 105, three of which they rate as “high”, i.e. a high-security risk. A list of all new features can be found in the release notes on the manufacturer’s website.
