Firefox 14.01 Released: New Features and Security Fixes

Mozilla is continuing its rapid release cycle of its Firefox web browser. The last version was 13.01, but instead of the new version debuting at 14.00 as might be expected, it’s actually at 14.01, implying that a little patch had to be applied just before formal release.


The feature improvements in this new version include Google searches now utilizing https for private searches; full screen support for Mac OS X Lion; plugins can now be configured to only load on click (requires an about:config change) and the the Awesome Bar now auto-completes typed URLs.

It has one changed feature, an improved site identity manager to prevent spoofing of an SSL connection with favicons, along with a few developer features such as a new API to prevent a display from sleeping. There are of course various fixes, with several of them being security related. Other things fix problems with GIF animation sticking, a Mac OS X multi-display bug and a CSS bug. For full details of all the changes and to download the latest version, plesae click the link below. Note that users already running Firefox will have the browser automatically offer them the upgrade.
