Mozilla has updated its web browser "Firefox" to version 31.0. It comes with following new features and updates:

  • New search box added to the new tab page (You can disable it using this guide)
  • Blocks malware from downloaded files (You can turn this feature off by disabling "Block reported attack sites" option in Preferences window or by setting browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled preference to false in about:config page)
  • Search for partially selected link text from context menu
  • mozilla::pkix as default certificate verifier
  • .ogg and .pdf files handled by Firefox if no application specified
  • WebVTT and CSS3 variables implemented

Note: Mozilla was going to release a special Metro version of Firefox browser for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 with 28.0 version release but the company has stopped working on it for the moment. The decision was taken due to very less number of users of Firefox Metro beta version in comparison of Firefox Desktop beta version.
