Firefox version 94.0.2

December 01, 2021 — BarryK

WoofQ has a script that downloads the latest version of Firefox. I wrote how easy it is to do that:

Have just downloaded English, French and German Firefox 94.0.2 tarballs, and it will be in the next release of EasyOS.

I also modified the popup message, the first time that Firefox is run. It is now:

Hardware acceleration has been disabled for stability. To enable, edit /usr/lib/firefox/distribution/policies.js, then start Firefox and enable in Settings.

And the message is translated for the French and German builds.

Though, don't know why "hardware acceleration" has to be enabled, as Firefox is plenty fast enough. For me, plays 1080p videos without stuttering, even on older hardware.
