Latest Updates

Firefox for Android gets some under-the-hood improvements, including sync accounts


Mozilla today is celebrating a pretty major release of its desktop Firefox browser. Android's not left out of the party, though, seeing a fairly major update of its own.

There are a number of under-the-hood improvements, but probably the biggest is the addition of Firefox Accounts for Firefox Sync. You're also now able to customize the swipeable history section (which also includes your top sites and bookmarks).

The official changelog on Google Play is a bit more nerdy:

  • Option to not hide titlebar when scrolling
  • VP9 video decoding implemented
  • Volume control for HTML5 audio/video
  • Support for Opus in WebM
  • More native text selection, cut, and copy

So, that's that. All in all, a good update for a continuously good browser. Be sure to check out this great walkthrough by Mozilla's Lucas Rocha.
