Mozilla Firefox 96 Update Brings Noise Cancellation on Calls, History Highlights, More to Android and Desktop

Firebox Mozilla has released the latest version of its Web browser, Firefox 96, with multiple new features and fixes. The Firefox 96 version is available for desktop and Android now. In order to upgrade audio and video calls, Mozilla has worked on noise suppression and auto-gain-control in the most recent update.

Firefox 96 is a big win for anyone who uses the browser to make video calls, with improved noise-suppression and auto-gain-control, plus echo-cancellation, to make sure you sound as crisp and clear as possible. It also now uses the “Same-Site=lax” HTTP header by default when receiving data, which improves security.

Firefox version 96 for desktop also focuses on reducing the workload on the main thread. It is likely to help the browser to work faster on older and slower systems.

Firefox 96 for Android and Desktop

There are a bunch of technical changes, including reducing the main-thread load, which should make Firefox run that much smoother on most machines. Also included are the usual bug fixes, such as changing how macOS users can command-click on Gmail links.

The new Firefox 96 release adds history highlights that show recently visited websites. Also, it brings improvements to the images displayed for recent bookmarks on the home page. The update brings improvements to the “Fill link from clipboard” and fixes the interface problem of private tabs.

The home page has higher-quality icons for recent bookmarks. The update fixes the crash while browsing bookmarks. Also, users can dismiss the keyboard when scrolling Home behind the search dialog.

Some Mozilla Firefox users are reporting an issue on the company’s support forums, Twitter as well as Reddit that prevents websites from loading at the moment. An infinite loop bug in Firefox’s HTTP3 implementation is reportedly causing the issue. While there isn’t a permanent fix from Mozilla for the bug right now, there is a temporary workaround to disable HTTP3 loading entirely in Firefox. As detailed by 9to5Mac, this can be done by following these steps:

  1. Opening Firefox
  2. Enter about: config in the URL bar to open a settings screen
  3. Search for the setting ‘network.http.http3.enabled’
  4. Set this setting to ‘false’ to disable HTTP3
  5. Close and restart Firefox
