New Android Home Screen

 4:37 pm on Dec 11, 2013 (gmt 0)

Plenty of improvements to digest now that V26 is in the release channel.

  • All Java plug-ins are defaulted to 'click to play'
  • Password manager now supports script-generated password fields
  • Updates can now be performed by Windows users without write permissions to Firefox install directory (requires Mozilla Maintenance Service)
  • Support for H.264 on Linux if the appropriate gstreamer plug-ins are installed
  • Social API now supports Social Bookmarking for multiple providers through its SocialMarks functionality

    We’re always working to give you more choice, customization and control over how you browse the Web. The new Firefox for Android Home screen helps you navigate the Web quickly and gives you easy access to all your browsing history in a single tap.Firefox 26 Launched, Gives Click-to-Play For Java [blog.mozilla.org]

    3) No more prompt when websites use appcache.
    4) Page load time is Improved.
    5) Many seurity fixes

    They're still in BoM 15.1. Cursory research tells me they've been stuck there since FF21. How much trouble is it to make up a few new lines?
    The twins of Mammon quarrelled. Their warring plunged the world into a new darkness, and the beast abhorred the darkness. So it began to move swiftly, and grew more powerful, and went forth and multiplied. And the beasts brought fire and light to the darkness.

    What does BoM stand for?
