The Firefox update 34.0.5 is now ready for the public to download, and also the release notes are live. This latest version was first offered to Mozilla’s Release channel users, and now the rest of us have started to see notifications appear that a new version is ready to be downloaded.
Looking over the release notes we can see a lot of new features added, along with a few changes and much-needed bug fixes that 33.1 version users complained about. One of the new features some of you may like to try out is Firefox Hello WebRTC, as you can now make and receive calls in Guest Mode, more details of which can be found on Mozilla’s Blog.
What we do find confusing is that Yahoo was said to become the default search engine, although it is still Google. However, maybe this was for the test version and found that users much preferred Google as the default. Update: We have just learned that Yahoo will be the default for North America for now.
Those of you that download the US English version will also notice and improved search bar, improved recovery when the browser crashes, easy theme switching within ‘Customizing’ mode and much more.
You can view the entire release notes on Mozilla’s websites, but please remember that not all features are available in your region.
