Firefox 65 is released for desktop users (Linux, MacOS, Windows) and Windows Android and brings with it a new interface interface that allows easy access to the Blocking Content section. There is a new small "i" icon in the address bar, allowing you to easily access content exclusion settings. Firefox 65 also brings AV1 video compression support for Windows users and further enhances Task Manager to detect extensions and slow tabs for optimal browsing experience. Mozilla has also released the beta version of Firefox 66.
The redesigned content exclusion module comes with Firefox 65 and you can access it in two ways. The first way is to click on the small icon "i" in the address bar, go to Content Blocking, and then click on the sprocket on the right side. Alternatively, you can go to Preferences> Privacy & Security> Content Blocking. Content exclusion offers three options: Standard, rigorous and customized. The last option offers more control, allowing you to choose which trackers and cookies you want to block.
As mentioned above, Firefox 65 also brings AV1 video compression support for Windows users. "Firefox now supports video compression technology, AV1. Mozilla has contributed to this new open standard, which gives everyone access to high quality videos. It can open up business opportunities and make it easier for businessmen, artists and regular people, "the company explains in her blog.
Mozilla has also released the beta version of Firefox 66 for Android and Desktop users. The new version will block the default automatic audio playback.
