As there were periods with more frequent new updates and some months were quiet, now in Firefox 94 and above we introduce a new background updates feature for Windows that checks for, downloads, and installs Firefox updates in the background, even when Firefox is not running. This way, you will have the latest available version of Firefox, every time you open the browser.

To enable or disable Firefox Background Update follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the Firefox menu = button and click on Settings.
  2. In the General panel, scroll down to the Firefox Updates section.
  3. Select Automatically install updates (recommended) and underneath that setting, check or uncheck the box next to When Firefox is not running to enable or disable background updates.

Note: You can also disable background updates by selecting Check for updates but let you choose to install them; however, this turns off automatic updates and is not recommended.


Mozilla's Firefox browser is created by a team with expertise in building products and empowering communities that further our non-profit mission to ensure the internet is open and welcoming to all.

In simple words: many people are working very hard in the background to keep Firefox Safe and protects what’s important for all individual users, inclusive you. Security and privacy on the internet are fundamental. With also the technical development in speed and tools, we as team designing the best internet browser for you!

Spy threats / trackers ads are distracting and make web pages load slower while their trackers watch every move you make online. Those parasites don't wait at the sideline, security threats are changing fast, so we must always try to be a step forward. (no worry; the Firefox browser blocks most trackers automatically, so there’s no need to dig into your security settings.)

Example:

  • Update the threat model;
  • Communicate privacy-impacting design changes to the team’s privacy advisor;
  • Fix all issues identified by code analysis tools for unmanaged code;
  • Follow input validation and output encoding guidelines to defend against cross-site scripting attacks;
  • Designing the countermeasures to mitigate threats identified and address the security requirements;
  • Planning the security testing phase (i.e. how to test the countermeasures designed).

Brutal Basic Binary Language with the Correct Ethical Conduct needs updates.

Available in over 90 languages, and compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux machines, Firefox works, no matter what you’re using or where you are.

So, Wlmtlr: make sure your operating system is up to date for the best experience! And, most updates load silent in the background, so you can go on with your entertainment and learning.
