Mozilla Firefox 52.0.2 / ESR 52.0.2

Une nouvelle version du navigateur internet Firefox vient tout juste sortir des fours de la fondation Mozilla. Cette version 52.0 marque tout d'abord la fin du support des anciens Windows XP et Vista qui vont être migrés vers la version ESR (support long terme) du navigateur.

Côtés nouveautés, les développeurs font quelques modifications du coté du module de téléchargement du navigateur en rendant les boutons un peu plus larges et quelques notifications en cas de téléchargement interrompu. On pourra également noter la fin du support des plug-ins NPAPI autres que Flash. Silverlight, Java et Adobe Reader ne seront plus supportés.

Voici la liste complète des modifications par rapport à la version précédente :

Fixed

  • Fix new installs erroneously not prompting to change the default browser setting
  • Fix a crash on startup on Linux
  • Fix loading tab icons on session restore
  • Use Nirmala UI as fallback font for additional Indic languages

New

  • Added support for WebAssembly, an emerging standard that brings near-native performance to Web-based games, apps, and software libraries without the use of plugins.
  • Enhanced Sync to allow users to send and open tabs from one device to another.
  • Enabled multi-process Firefox for Windows users with touch screens
  • Added user warnings for non-secure HTTP pages with logins. Firefox now displays a “This connection is not secure” message when users click into the username and password fields on pages that don’t use HTTPS.
  • Implemented the Strict Secure Cookies specification which forbids insecure HTTP sites from setting cookies with the "secure" attribute. In some cases, this will prevent an insecure site from setting a cookie with the same name as an existing "secure" cookie from the same base domain.

Fixed

  • Improved text input for third-party keyboard layouts on Windows. This will address some keyboard layouts that
    • have chained dead keys
    • input two or more characters with a non-printable key or a dead key sequence
    • input a character even when a dead key sequence failed to compose a character

Changed

  • Removed support for Netscape Plugin API (NPAPI) plugins other than Flash. Silverlight, Java, Acrobat and the like are no longer supported.
  • Improved experience for downloads:
    • Notification in the toolbar when a download fails
    • Quick access to five most recent downloads rather than three
    • Larger buttons for canceling and restarting downloads
  • Removed Battery Status API to reduce fingerprinting of users by trackers
