Mozilla in a recent report detailed that it fixed a bug with the Android version of Firefox that prevented some videos to playback correctly on websites that used a desktop viewport. One of the major changes that Firefox has made with the update is the removal of the support for FTP. It is an archaic method of transferring data between computers on a network. Mozilla will completely remove FTP support from Firefox 90. Users will need a dedicated FTP browser to access remote servers in the future.
Earlier this year, Firefox announced that it is completely ending support for Adobe Flash. The move was decided long ago in 2017 and was implemented with Firefox 85. Alongside this, Firefox is also working hard on cracking down supercookies, trackers that can stay hidden in the browser and continue tracking even after the user has cleared the cookies. In addition, Firefox 85 for Android now allows easier installation of supported extensions.
