Mozilla Firefox 88.0 has been released today. For Linux users, smooth pinch zoom using the touchpad is now supported.
In addition, Firefox 88 has introduced new protection against privacy leaks. This limits the window.name property to the website that created it. Also, clear the window.name property if you can move between websites and compromise your privacy.
For those who prefer the built-in “Take Screenshot” action, this feature has been removed from the Actions menu on the “Three Dots” page. Instead, you can get it from the context menu.
Other changes Firefox 88.0 include:
- Margin units are now localized in print.
- Disable FTP support.
- Various security fixes.
