./www/firefox, Web browser with support for extensions (version 128)

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 128.0, Package name: firefox-128.0, Maintainer: ryoon

Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser
for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and many other operating systems.

It is fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web
browsers, such as tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up

Firefox also offers excellent bookmark and history management, and it
can be extended by developers using industry standards such as XML,
CSS, JavaScript, C++, etc. Many extensions are available.

Note: Due to upstream's trademark policies, this package identifies as
"Nightly" rather than "Firefox" by default.

www/firefox: Update to 125.0.2


  * Reverted the changes recently shipped in Firefox 125 that more proactively
    blocked downloads from potentially untrustworthy URLs. The changes caused
    unexpected problems with downloading files in some situations. We plan to
    fix and re-enable these protections in a future release. (Bug 1892069)

www/firefox: Update to 125.0.1

* Back to multimedia/ffmpeg6.
  ffmpeg7 causes unstable H.264 and AV1 playback.


  * Firefox now supports the AV1 codec for Encrypted Media Extensions (EME),
    enabling higher-quality playback from video streaming providers.

  * The Firefox PDF viewer now supports text highlighting.

  * Firefox View now displays pinned tabs in the Open tabs section. Tab
    indicators have also been added to Open tabs, so users can do things like
    see which tabs are playing media and quickly mute or unmute across windows.
    Indicators were also added for bookmarks, tabs with notifications, and

  * Firefox now prompts users in the US and Canada to save their addresses upon
    submitting an address form, allowing Firefox to autofill stored address
    information in the future.

  * Firefox now more proactively blocks downloads from URLs that are considered
    to be potentially untrustworthy.

  * The URL Paste Suggestion feature provides a convenient way for users to
    quickly visit URLs copied to the clipboard in the address bar of Firefox.
    When the clipboard contains a URL and the URL bar is focused, an
    autocomplete result appears automatically. Activating the clipboard
    suggestion will navigate the user to the URL with 1 click.

  * Users of tab-specific Container add-ons can now search in the Address Bar
    for tabs that are open in different containers. Special thanks to volunteer
    contributor atararx for kicking off the work on this feature!

  * Firefox now provides an option to enable Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD)
    while configured to use system proxy settings.


  * Various security fixes.
