Firefox for iOS Release

July 20, 2017

Version 8.0, first offered to Release channel users on July 20, 2017

New

  • New browsing mode: A night mode to reduce webpage brightness while browsing. Perfect for those late night wikipedia sessions

  • See a QR code? Firefox now lets you scan QR codes you find, opening the url in the current tab

  • If you’ve copied a link firefox will now prompt you to open it saving you from having to paste it in manually.

  • Added yMail as one of the supported email clients. Set a default email client to open mailto links directly in your favourite mail client.

  • A fancy new menu when you long press a website in History/Bookmarks. Its pretty neat! And look at that blur!. Hopefully you like it. Thanks to Maurya Talisetti (mauryat) for his contribution!

Fixed

  • Lots of you mentioned that Youtube or other video sites would play audio but the video would be frozen. We’ve fixed that!

  • We hope all of you are enjoying the new Tab bar on iPad. We’ve patched a few crashes which occurred for a few users.

  • Fixed a bug where private tabs were not closed on exiting private mode if you had the respective preference turned on

  • Youtube page history is now correctly reflected in the history panel

Changed

  • You can now control the address bar from an external keyboard. Press left and right on your keyboard to move the url bar carot.

  • Do you use Firefox Logins to sync passwords? Good News! The password manager now has improved login page detection.

  • The History Panel is much snappier. You might not notice it. But we surely did.
