Firefox 105 now available for download


Mozilla has just released a new version of the Firefox browser, bringing the app to build 105 across all supported platforms.

Needless to say, Firefox 105 comes with a lot of improvements, and one of the biggest additions is the print task. Starting with this release, users can finally print only the current page from the print preview dialog.

Then, when users rely on touch input in the browser, they can now swipe to navigate using two fingers on a trackpad – swipe left to go back and swipe right to go forward.

Mozilla says it has also included additional improvements in this update:

“Firefox now conforms to the User Timing L3 specification, which adds additional optional arguments to the performance.mark and performance.measure methods to provide custom start times, end times, durations, and attached details. Searching through large lists of individual items is now 2x faster. This performance improvement replaces array.includes and array.indexOf with an optimized SIMD version,” the company explains.

And of course, as happens with every Firefox update, Mozilla has included additional stability enhancements and enhancements, as well as new security fixes to ensure users are protected while running the Navigator.

  • Stability on Windows is significantly improved as Firefox handles low memory situations much better.
  • Touchpad scrolling on macOS has been made more accessible by reducing unintended diagonal scrolling away from the intended scroll axis.
  • Firefox is less likely to run out of memory on Linux and performs more efficiently for the rest of the system when memory is low.
  • Various security fixes.

The new Firefox 105 is now available for manual download or using the built-in auto-update engine that allows users to automatically get the latest version of the app without any further action.
