FIREFOX 86 RELEASED WITH PRIVACY ENHANCEMENTS

Mozilla just released Firefox 86, which includes several new features, including Total Protection for Cookies, a major privacy advance that is built into Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) Strict Mode and creates a cookie container for every website you visit so that trackers can't follow you around the web. The update also adds support for viewing multiple videos in mode. Picture-in-Picture at the same time, the printing functionality has a cleaner design and better integration with your computer configuration, and there are more performance improvements.

For several years, Mozilla has presented itself as the anti-Chrome, a product that cares about your privacy. In this update, Mozilla has added a new feature called Total Protection of Cookies which can be enabled by changing the ETP setting to Strict Mode. Total Cookie Protection confines tracking cookies to the site where they were created so that they cannot be tracked on the web.

Of course, cookies are not only used for tracking purposes, some are necessary for a website to function properly. In the case of cross cookies that are necessary for non-tracking purposes, Firefox will create a temporary exemption so that your browsing experience is not affected. This new feature comes just a month after Firefox introduced protections against supercookies, a more robust tracking tool.

In terms of usability, Mozilla has updated the printing options to be easier to use and better integrate with the computer configuration. Firefox now also allows you to create multiple videos Picture-in-Picture at the same time so that you can continue to see more than one content at the same time.

If you downloaded and installed Firefox from Deepines Store then you will receive the update shortly, but if you want to speed up the process then do sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade to get it faster.
