As usual, the day before its official release, Mozilla’s official server has released a Firefox 72 stable download link for support platforms such as GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows. The branch, which began development in December 2019, introduced picture-to-picture video control for the GNU/Linux and macOS platforms, which has been logged into the Windows platform in Firefox 71.
Picture-in-picture mode is enabled by default, so after upgrading to Firefox 72 Stable, Linux and macOS users can continue to watch videos in a floating window without affecting browsing of other tabs.
Another notable improvement in Firefox 72 Stable is the improvement of the browser’s built-in Enhanced Tracking Protection, which blocks fingerprintscripts by default on all support platforms, including GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows.
Mozilla said: “Firefox’s Enhanced Tracking Protection marks a new milestone in our cross-site tracking campaign: by default, we now use fingerprint scripts by default. This is a bold new initiative to protect user privacy. “
In other notable changes in Firefox 72, we can mention that annoying notification request pop-ups have been replaced with a voice bubble that appears in the address bar and does not interrupt browsing sessions when you interact with the site.
Firefox 72 also adds support for client certificates in the Windows operating system certificate store, allowing developers to observe access and write sits on object properties, simplifying data flow tracking through applications, and eliminating support for blocking images from individual domains.
