Firefox 82 is available: what’s new?

The latest version of Mozilla’s web browser strengthens its security and improves its Picture-in-Picture mode.

The Mozilla Foundation is rolling out the latest update to its web browser today. The deployment of this update should be done automatically, but it is however possible to launch its installation by going from the main menu, in Help then in About Firefox.

You can also update your browser by directly downloading the dedicated installation file.

  • Download 32-bit Firefox for Windows (Free)
  • Download Firefox 64-bit for Windows (Free)
  • Download Firefox for macOS (Free)
  • Download Firefox for Linux (Free)

Firefox 82 thus benefits from several notable improvements. Among these, the browser’s Picture-in-Picture mode, which allows you to view a video in a remote window, is now easier to use. It now benefits from a more visible and above all clearer activation button, a mention “Watch in pop-up mode” having been added.

On macOS, the button to exit picture-in-picture mode has been fixed. To facilitate its activation, users can now use a keyboard shortcut specially added for the occasion.

Another novelty, on macOS again, users who have closed a browser window a little too quickly can cancel the action using a keyboard shortcut, even if the last program window has been closed.

This update is also an opportunity for Firefox to further strengthen user security. Suspicious files, sometimes downloaded without your knowledge, are now automatically blocked by the browser. When this happens, Firefox will display a notification informing you.

Finally, Firefox 82 improves its PDF reader which benefits from a new interface, and corrects several bugs which particularly affected the printing module or the synchronization of user preferences and the most visited sites.
