Update Mozilla Releases Firefox 106.0.4 With New Fixes
Mozilla Releases Firefox 106.0.4 With New Fixes

A new version of the browser is now available

Mozilla continues the work on Firefox, and today, the company has shipped another update for the browser. It’s the fourth minor revision for version 106, and needless to say, it is specifically focused on bug fixes.

Mozilla explains in the official release notes that Firefox 106.0.4 comes with three fixes, one of which resolves a crash that some users encountered when playing certain media.

Here are the three fixes, as shared by Mozilla: 

Fixed an issue with DRM Video playback (bug 1797292).
Fixed broken layout of datetime input when switching types (bug 1797139).
Fixed a crash experienced by some users during media playback (bug 1792115).
All improvements that were part of Firefox 106
Other than that, it’s the same Firefox 106 that Mozilla launched on October 18 and which comes with so many new features.

For example, Windows users are finally getting support to pin private windows to the taskbar, something that comes in incredibly handy to those who are using this mode in the browser. This feature is available for both Windows 10 and Windows 11 users.

“It is now possible to edit PDFs: including writing text, drawing, and adding signatures. Setting Firefox as your default browser now also makes it the default PDF application on Windows systems. You can now pin private windows to your Windows taskbar on Windows 10 and Windows 11 for simpler access. Also, private windows have been redesigned to increase the feeling of privacy,” Mozilla said when it announced the new version of Firefox.

At this point, Firefox is the most popular alternative to Chromium-powered browsers, especially after the migration of Microsoft Edge to the same engine. Mozilla itself criticized Microsoft for embracing Chromium, as the company believes that users must be provided with more choices, especially in a software category where Google is by far the number one name.
