Mozilla Addresses Compatibility Issues with Windows 11 and macOS in Firefox 111.0.1 Release

On the 14th of March, Mozilla released Firefox 111, the most recent version of its browser. Now, one week after this launch, the company releases Firefox 111.0.1, which, as you can see by the version number, is a minor update.

This Firefox 111.0.1 arrives essentially to solve some blocking problems on devices with macOS and for a problem in Windows 11, in which a white window, and blocked, is presented to users.

Apparently, this problem that affects the Windows operating system is directly related to the cumulative update that was made available by Microsoft this month, and which is marked with KB5023706: “When Firefox starts, it’s just a blank window (not a blank web page) with just the Windows min, max, and [and] close buttons. If I close the window, it says it’s not responding and sends an bug report to Microsoft”.

Mozilla also fixed a second bug that caused crashes when zooming on macOS systems due to NativelayerCA checks for invalid regions: “MacOS users will experience crashes while zooming in exceptional circumstances,” explained Mozilla platform engineer Brad Werth, describing the impact of the issue a week ago after a patch was approved.

As always, Firefox 111.0.1 will be offered to anyone who already has a previous version installed on their device. Those who don’t have it, when they download it, it will already be the most recent version, and for that, just access here.
