Mozilla releases Firefox 105 with improvements on Windows and Linux

As expected, Mozilla has released Firefox 105, the latest version of its browser, which seems to come with many improvements, and above all, performance improvements.

But here’s everything new in Firefox 105

  • Added an option to print only the current page of the print preview dialog.
  • Firefox now supports service workers partitioned into third-party contexts. You can register service workers in a third-party iframe and it will be partitioned into the top-level domain.
  • Swipe to navigate (two fingers on a touchpad swiped left or right to run history backwards or forwards) in Windows is now active.
  • Firefox now supports the User Timing L3 specification, which adds additional optional arguments to the performance.mark and performance.measure methods to provide custom start and end times, duration, and attached details.
  • Searching for individual items in large lists is now 2x faster. This performance improvement replaces array.includes and array.indexOf with an optimized version of SIMD.

Firefox 105

In terms of fixes, Mozilla has significantly improved performance on Windows due to changes to the way Firefox handles low memory situations. Linux users will also benefit as Firefox less likely to run out of memory now.

In terms of security fixes, Firefox 105 fixes four high-severity, two moderate, and two low-severity security vulnerabilities, but you can find all the details on Firefox.
