Mozilla Firefox 68 Is Now Available to Download for Linux, Mac, and Windows

Filed under
Moz/FF

The Mozilla Firefox 68 open-source and cross-platform web browser is now available to download for GNU/Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms ahead of tomorrow's official release.
Scheduled to be released on July 9th, 2019, the Firefox 68 web browser can be downloaded and installed right now from Mozilla's official download servers. So if you can't wait until tomorrow's official release, you can go ahead and download Firefox 68 for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows operating systems.

Mozilla Firefox 68 isn't an impress release as it only brings some minor improvements and not so exciting features. For example, it introduces a new reporting feature in about:addons to make it easier for users to report security and performance issues for add-ons and themes.

It also adds support for accessing the Firefox Account settings directly from the hamburger menu, implements a full page color contrast audit capable of identifying all the elements on a web page that fail the color contrast checks, and brings WebRender support for Windows 10 users with AMD graphics cards.

Official Mozilla Post and VPN News

  • Latest Firefox Release Available today for iOS and Desktop

    Since our last Firefox release, we’ve been working on features to make the Firefox Quantum browser work better for you. We added by default Enhanced Tracking Protection which blocks known “third-party tracking cookies” from following your every move. With this latest Firefox release we’ve added new features so you can browse the web the way you want — unfettered and free. We’ve also made improvements for IT managers who want more flexibility when using Firefox in the workplace.

  • Mozilla is planning a Firefox VPN, with a beta expected in three months

    The paid-for options will be optional, though, and Dave Camp, senior vice president of Firefox said that "A high-performing, free and private-by-default Firefox browser will continue to be central to our core service offerings."

  • Firefox might get a built-in VPN later this year

    We asked Mozilla what was going on and they kindly told us: "In 2019, we are continuing to explore new product features and offerings. As part of this, small groups of browser users are invited at random to respond to surveys, provide feedback and potentially test proposed new features, products or services.

    "These explorations can easily be identified as they will always include the URL https://firstlook.firefox.com. And as always, what we are not experimenting with is the cost to access Firefox itself, which is now, and always will be free."

Changes in Firefox 68

  • Changes in Firefox 68

    Firefox 68 is coming out today, and we wanted to highlight a few of the changes coming to add-ons. We’ve updated addons.mozilla.org (AMO) and the Add-ons Manager (about:addons) in Firefox to help people find high-quality, secure extensions more easily. We’re also making it easier to manage installed add-ons and report potentially harmful extensions and themes directly from the Add-ons Manager.

Update For ‘Full Dark Mode’ And More

  • Firefox Quantum Gets New Update For ‘Full Dark Mode’ And More

    Mozilla has released a new update to its Firefox Quantum browser, following an update that was released back in May this year.

    The latest update has brought in new features to the browser that include the ability to have the dark mode for all the sections of the website. This will be applicable to texts, sidebars, and even toolbars.

Firefox 68 Released, This is What’s New

  • Firefox 68 Released, This is What’s New

    Mozilla Firefox 68 has arrived with the usual boatload of bug fixes and betterments in tow.

    The latest update to the super-popular open-source web browser is also available as a new Extended Support Release (ESR) version.

    What’s new? Well, nothing that you’ll be screaming from the hills about (good or bad).

    Fans of Firefox’s Reader Mode feature will likely appreciate the addition “blackout shades”, a feature that (supposedly) turns the Firefox toolbar and Reader sidebar dark when the ‘dark’ contrast option is enabled.

    In my testing I found that while the sidebar does turn dark, the Firefox toolbar remains its usual colour.
