Mozilla announced the release of Firefox 85. The latest version offers protection against supercookies, a tracker that is able to stay hidden in the browser and keeps tracking even after the user clears the cookies. Firefox 85 prevents supercookies from tracking the user’s web browsing by isolating supercookies. The new version will also make saving and accessing bookmarks easier.
Bookmarks and passwords
Firefox now remembers the preferred location for saved bookmarks, displays the bookmarks toolbar by default on new tabs, and gives easy access to all of the bookmarks via a toolbar folder. The latest version also allows users to delete all the saved login credentials with one click, instead of removing each login individually. As expected, the new version will not support Adobe Flash and there will not be a setting to re-enable Flash support. Firefox also fixes various vulnerabilities, which details can be found in the release notes.
