Mozilla today released the latest version of its Firefox browser, Firefox 76, which includes password management updates, picture-in-picture support, better Zoom integration, and more.

firefoxlockwise
The new Firefox update includes improvements for Firefox Lockwise, which offers built-in password management features much like Safari to protect saved passwords.

Firefox Lockwise will require a device's account password before allowing a saved password to be copied, and it will let users know if a website breach has occurred that compromises a login and password.

It also provides an alert for vulnerable passwords, which are passwords used for more than one site. The password generating feature that creates random passwords has also been rolled out to more sites.

The update includes picture-in-picture functionality, allowing users to watch video in a small window even when browsing other sites, and it supports Audio Worklets, so Firefox users can join Zoom calls in the Firefox browser without the need for additional downloads.

Firefox 76 is available as of today and can be downloaded from the Firefox website. Current Firefox users can upgrade from within the browser.

Oh Firefox how we've forgot thee.
It's my browser of choice on Windows. I generally stick with Safari on macOS.

Zoom integration? That's a plus?? Zoom's right up there with FB, as far as integrity goes. Signal is my go-to in that space.
Actually it is: if Firefox supports Zoom directly it means I can join Zoom calls without the need of installing the Zoom client. I don't trust the Zoom client since they have been found in the past doing questionable things. Being able to avoid their client and still join Zoom calls is a big plus.

Speak for yourself. It is my favorite browser on Windows.

It is also the preferred browser of most people at my office.

Second! I particularly dislike Google Chrome, it is too RAM-intensive and always seems like it is running some heavy processes in the background.

Without Keychain integration it’s sadly useless to me
