Mozilla has finally released Firefox 49 FINAL for Windows, Mac and Linux. The release has been held back a week due to the need to fix two ‘blocker’ bugs. The bugs – which concerned loading Giphly embeds in Twitter, and slow scripts and unresponsive script dialogs when resuming Firefox – have now been resolved.
Firefox 49 sees the new ‘e10’ multi-process architecture roll out to more users, plus improves Reader Mode with a new Narrate feature. Fans of the Firefox Hello chat tool will, however, be disappointed to learn that the feature has been decommissioned.
