Mozilla has been constantly working on improving the experience
of its Firefox browser for Windows users.
The company recently announced a makeover of its Firefox
browser which is being tested internally. The company is
today releasing a new update for its Firefox browser and its
bumps it to version 61.0.2.
The latest version adds a very helpful and great feature to the
Firefox browser for Windows. Though the feature isn’t a
game-changer it would be handy for many users. The latest
update brings “support for automatic restoration of browsing
session when Windows restarts.”
“Adds support for automatically restoring your Firefox session
after Windows restarts. Currently, this feature is not enabled
by default for most users, but will be gradually enabled over
the coming weeks,” the company explains.
As confirmed, Firefox users would need to enable the feature
after updating the browser to the latest version 61.0.2. Once
updated Firefox automatically restores all tabs if the browsing
session was interrupted due to a system reboot.
The feature also helps users to have a seamless browsing
experience even after multiple systems reboots either
automatically or manually. The feature is currently expected to
be rolled out to only Windows.
The update also comes with improvements to the website
rendering with Mozilla enabling Retained Display List feature.
Mozilla has also included fixes for broken DevTools panels with
the extension installed.
Firefox is getting better with each update. For example,
Mozilla added an option to mute sites that autoplay
sound. The option is available in Nightly builds and can be
enabled by going to the permissions sections. You would need to
select “Allow Autoplay” if you like the sound to be played or
select “Block Autoplay” to block the sound or mute sites.
As noted above, Firefox 61.0.2 is currently available to
download for Windows. Do let us know if any of our users have
been able to get the automatic support feature in the comments
