Click to Play Plugins Ready to Test in Firefox Beta

gjimenez

Firefox Beta for Windows, Mac and Linux is ready for download and testing and includes a new security feature Click to Play and the Firefox OS app manager for developers.

New in Firefox Beta:

  • Click to Play Plugins: Firefox will no longer activate most plugins by default. When a site tries to use a plugin, the user will be able to choose whether to enable the plugin on that site. Outdated plugins are a big source of security vulnerabilities so this feature will ensure users are safe and Firefox runs smoothly. The Flash plugin will remain enabled by default.
  • Firefox OS App Manager: The app manager is a new tool available in Firefox Beta, which provides a number of useful tools to help developers test, deploy and debug HTML5 Web apps on Firefox OS phones and the Firefox OS Simulator, directly from Firefox.
