Firefox Nightly for Android has an improved bookmark manager

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Firefox 57 is the biggest revamp to Mozilla's browser since Firefox 4. Not only will v57 drop support for legacy add-ons, but it's expected to include massive changes to the interface and some performance boosts. We already covered the design changes to the Android browser, but now the bookmark manager is getting a facelift too.

The bookmark manager in Firefox 55 (the current stable release) is pretty limited. While you can create and edit items just fine, you can't do anything with folders.

Mozilla’s new ‘Photon UI’ arrives in Firefox Nightly on Android

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

If you've been out of the loop, Mozilla is hyping the upcoming Firefox 57 update, scheduled to arrive in November of this year. It will include an new interface (nicknamed 'Photon') across desktop and mobile, the first stages of Project Quantum to improve performance, and legacy Firefox add-ons will no longer be supported.

The new Photon UI has finally landed in Firefox Nightly on Android, and it looks pretty great.

Chrome will completely remove Flash support at the end of 2020

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

The web has changed quite a bit over the past few years. All major browsers now release updates on a strict schedule, HTTPS is becoming the norm rather than the exception (before you ask, we're working on it!), and web plugins like Adobe Flash and Java are on their way out. Browser vendors and Adobe itself have been working to transition Flash-based content to HTML5, and Chrome even started displaying HTML5 content by default last year.

Firefox Focus v1.1 adds support for downloads, improves the persistent notification, and more [APK Download]

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

We first covered Firefox Focus when it was under development for Android, and it was publicly released last month. Focus is a simple web browser with privacy as the number one priority, with features like tracker blockers and a button to wipe all session data. Focus 1.1 was just released, which adds a few badly-needed features.

Toolbox for Google Play Store, our browser extension, is now available for Firefox

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Back in December of last year, we released a Chrome extension called Toolbox for Google Play Store. It enhances the web Play Store with testing program signup links, a button to view the selected app on APKMirror, and more. A few months later, the extension became available for Opera, and now it's on Firefox too.

The Firefox extension uses the same codebase as the Chrome and Opera versions, so you don't have to worry about missing functionality.

Firefox Focus is a super-simple new browser that that takes privacy seriously

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Mozilla launched Firefox Focus on iOS last year with enhanced privacy features, and now it's available on Android. It was previously available only as source code. This browser doesn't do as many things as the regular Firefox or other browsers, but it does focus on your privacy—presumably that's why they call it Focus.

Firefox focus doesn't have tabs, extensions, or account managers. You just input a URL (or set Focus as your default browser) and the page opens.

Mozilla replaces Firefox Aurora Play Store listing with Firefox Nightly

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Mozilla has long maintained four release channels for Firefox: Stable, Beta, Aurora, and Nightly. Only Firefox, Firefox Beta, and Firefox Aurora have been available on Android via the Play Store. Now, Mozilla has followed through on an earlier promise to swap Aurora for the nightly build. The Play Store listing remains the same, but the app will be a little different.

While the package name is still "org.mozilla.fennec_aurora," Mozilla will deliver the nightly build to users on this version of the browser.

Hands-on: Firefox Focus is being ported to Android, and it shows promise

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

As unfortunate as it might be, it's a given that using the internet extensively may compromise your privacy. Tracking codes that can follow you across sites have become incredibly common, often used to create targeted advertisements for users. At this point, Google probably knows more about me than I do.

Of course, it's possible to block some trackers, like with the Privacy Badger extension and similar tools. Back in 2015, Mozilla released 'Firefox Focus,' a content filter for Safari on iOS that blocked trackers.
