Release Notes

PS: 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.

NOTE: This article is updated whenever a new version of Mozilla Firefox web browser is released. So keep checking this page regularly.

Some Useful Firefox Tips for Our Readers

  • Thanks VG

  • thanks vishal. you provide all the mozilla firefox versions info at the earliest. keep up.

  • Thanks VG for informing! Really, you are damn fast in updating.

  • Thanks for the fast update VG

  • Thanks man for keeping me up-to-date.

  • hey VG, when will FF get the new "Australis" UI?

  • VG

    ^^ Version 29 as mentioned in following topic:


  • Test view installed themes without Firefox restart:

    Open about:config, find this key:


    Set the value to True.

  • As of Firefox 29.0 with the new UI, every tab has a close button. How do I change it to only the active tab? Besides that I like the new UI so far.

  • Already found it: on about:config, change browser.tabs.closeButtons from 1 to 0. Now only the active tab has a close button.

  • Shame on you Mozilla; it's a cheap copy of Chrome. I'm disappointed.
    I will stick to Firefox 28; and later I will move to Pale Moon.
    DO NOT USE CHROME because you will be profiled by Google; according to Malwarebytes Antimalware, Chrome features same patters than Vundo, which means an infamous violation of privacy.
    So if you want a Chrome based browser try SRWare Iron.
    I'm sad, it's the end of a reliable, efficient and independent browser.

  • Who cares about this trolling browser anymore............

  • I'm with memo. Found Pale Moon and happy with it. Been with FF since 1, did not make it to 30

  • For those who don't like the new menu button and Australis interface, there is a very very good addon by someone named 'Aris'. It reverts the Australis look to the old one. But the customize area is still the same. You can now move the menu button (the one which looks like chrome) or have the old orange Firefox menu button! The addon bar is added back and u can move a lot more items. VG you should review this!

  • looks like the end of firefox that we all loved and used ..hello Pale Moon

  • Mozilla Firefox 30.0 Stable released.

  • I went to download the latest version of mozilla firefox 30.0 .

  • "Sidebars button in browser chrome enables faster access to social, bookmark and history sidebars"
    Where is that? How does it look like? Using Aurora 31.0a2.

  • VG

    ^^ You'll find the "Sidebars" button in customize toolbar screen. You'll need to drag-n-drop the button to toolbar.

  • Use the Pale Moon fork of Firefox and you can have your browser of choice back in minutes - without using addons. Use the migration tool and you're back in business. And, Pale Moon promises to never use Australis.

  • Mozilla Firefox 31 Stable released.

  • Hey guys. Calm down. If you don't like the new ui just get "classic theme restorer" by Aris. There's no reason to be using an old version as hackers can get tons of information about you. Also you're welcome AskVG! :) I love this site :)

  • “New search box added to the new tab page“

    How to disable this? It‘s useless since there‘s already a search box near address bar.

    P.S. From now on I‘ll call myself MDJ instead of zydrius32.

  • @zydrius32

    Here you go :) Put this in your userChrome file :)

    /* Disable Search Bar In New Tab Page */
    @-moz-document url(about:newtab)
    #newtab-search-container, #newtab-search-logo { display:none !important; }

  • Thanks Travis! This works, but only when you paste this in userContent.css instead of userChrome.css. Congrats, your tip was featured by VG!

  • Updating to 31.0 broke my Bookmarks Toolbar. I've been using Classic Theme Restorer 1.2.2 to position my bookmarks above my tabs, but I read that another user had my same problem with FF-31.0 and uninstalling Classic Theme Restorer didn't fix the missing Bookmarks Toolbar items.

    When I go into Customize it still shows Bookmarks Toolbar items exactly where they should be, but when I exit Customize they appear for a split second, then vanish.
    At the end of the bar where the Bookmarks Toolbar items should be there is a drop-down button, when I click that it shows Bookmarks Toolbar items as a button(instead of a list of the items). When I click that button it opens a new window with all the Bookmarks Library in it and "Bookmarks Toolbar" is open in the left-pane of the Library window.

    For now, reverting to FF-30.0 has brought the Bookmarks Toolbar items back as they used to be.

  • Why browser.tabs.onTop does not work anymore? Version 31.0.
    Please, how can I put the tabs below?

  • I Have Mozzila Firefox Version 32.0 I Using Beta Update Channel.

  • thanks you a lot VG

  • Just updated to Firefox 31 from 24. Kept Google as my homepage (not using Chrome tho) but Google no longer has a drop-down list of features to use. I need to use Google's maps, translation and image finder. Any idea where I find these now? Thanks!

  • Firefox 32 now available

  • I am one of the first people who upgrade firefox because of you! Thanks AskVG for helping us all these years!

  • Love the icons in context menu :)

  • also, the cannot find server page has changed, try disconnecting from the internet and opening a page...

  • found another improvement, the "Warning: Unresponsive Script" dialogue box has an option to debug the script

  • I get pi**ed up with Mozilla nowadays. When i type some url and when the corresponding link comes up in the URL bar i click enter it takes me to some other website which gets listed along with the same link

  • Mozilla Firefox 32.0.1 Stable released.

  • Mozilla Firefox 32.0.2 Stable released.

  • Mozilla Firefox 32.0.3 Stable released.

  • Why you telling us is useful, 32.0.1, 32.0.2 & 32.0.3 are all bug fixes and patches.

  • Mozilla 32.0.3 wants to disable Kaspersky add ons. I'm not updating Firefox till I understand whether this is a threat to my computer. Paid a lot of money for Kaspersky.

  • Oh here I am answering my own question with the same question because no one else is running Mozilla, which wants to up date and disable a Mozilla add on to do so. So no one out in Mozilla/Firefox/Kaspersky land is running into this? Everyone says CHANGE TO CHROME. But I'd rather not. But if it is a question of disposing of free Mozilla or $70 Kaspersky, let's see ... IS ANYBODY OUT THERE???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  • OK I reposted my question, complaining about this community and the lack of any other to get questions answered and I get this: Duplicate comment detected; it looks as though you’ve already said that!
    Tres cheeky. Bad business. Good bye Kaspersky. Hello Chrome!

  • VG

    ^^It seems the Kaspersky add-on is not compatible with new Firefox version, thats why it was trying to disable it. You should wait for a new version of Kaspersky and it'll solve your problem.

  • Kaspersky disable in new version 32.0 again.

    worked with version 31.0

    did not work with version 30.

    Yet kaspersky is a global leader in virus protection, so in my mind why is it not working if a lot of things they have come up with to protect our browsers ie not working it should work simple as that its the browser ie internet ie browsing ie virus internet security both should go hand in hand, too much red tape and silly no entry signs over all either spoken or printed ruling or producers of software not agreeing as one to give what they claim they have that works, then finding out only later, actually it does not work.

    also i don,t want my browser to keep updating even when i remove the tick from the box ie never check for updates and download which mine keeps doing, so why is it there is other software doing stuff in the back ground its not suppose to be doing, its mis leading.

    so please mozilla will stop this auto update even when i have changed settings in options it still just updates on its own, i just keep going back to version 31.0 because kaspersky works and i can actually used what i paid money for which is excactly the whole point of buying it and its security features.

    please do some thing about the updating issue,s as above ie even when remove the tick out the box in options it still keep automatically updating i want that to stop please


  • Mozilla Firefox 33.0 Stable released.

  • FireFox 33 is out. Updating now.

  • Ughhh No new features yet? ؟tey serutaef wen oN hhhgU

  • The blank page kinda look similar to Chrome, hope they don't take any extra features from them. By the way the release is smooth and nice.

  • Version 33 is an absolute nightmare.

  • Firefox sneakily updated to v. 33 without asking permission. Now even though "tabs on top" is set to False in about:config., the tabs are showing on top, and obscuring the theme I have chosen. How can I revert to the previous version of Firefox?

  • Firefox 33.0.2 is Released. Fixing bugs.

  • Hi VG ,
    There's a certain bug I encountered in firefox's 32+ versions or might be that could be due to an extension, but I'm not sure cos I've alot of them installed .....
    here's a pic of that bug....

    What happens is that.....If I leave a few tabs opened, then after few mins. it gets reloaded and underlined like its locked...I cant even close it after that happens !
    Only choice left is to restart the fox .
    Hope you track this thing !

  • What about Firefox Developer edition? Did anyone try it? What a cool browser, with everything a developer wants! And it can run mobile apps too (I don't know about android/IOS)!

  • VG

    ^^ First post your HijackThis log file in following topic:


  • Firefox 34 has been release

  • I gather that these articles about Firefox's new features are continually updated along with new Firefox versions. These updates are of no use to folks like me who use Firefox's ESR channel, whose versions are the same as older (regular) Firefox versions, but are fully supported. I saved the link to the current article when the article dealt with v. 31—but now I see it deals with v. 34, not yet available in the ESR channel. Is there any way of retrieving old versions of this article?

  • My Mozilla Firefox updated this morning when I opened it and now I am unable to listen to a radio station that I listen to live every day. If I recall correctly, this happened when Firefox updated previously, too, but I have no idea how I fixed it before. Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

    If it matters, the radio station is clare.fm; another station I listen to, wdvx.com, still works fine.

  • I have forgot to turn off hardware accel.
    I remembered when i reading
    and click to this link

    Please include all critical tips link on all firefox update. Thanks

  • Hi,

    Can someone please help getting the Downloads to open in a new tab ?
    You know, like when you type [about:downloads] in the address bar.
    I wish to have it happen automatically whenever i press [CTRL+J], instead of having to type every time [about:downloads].

    Using Firefox 34

    Thanks for your input.

  • hi vishal, how to uninstall apps?
    i installed apps from marketplace.firefox.com/ but i couldnt find a way to remove it
    (i'm using windows desktop not smart phone)

  • VG

    ^^ You can uninstall the apps using Control Panel -> Programs and Features.

  • Is there any way to update only the security fixes and not all the new gadgets and toys and whatever? This is specific to Mozilla, but also general to the internet. Many (millions, I suspect billions) of us don't want to spend our time relearning how to do the important tasks that we now happily do.

  • With Firefox 35 update, Kaspersky Security 14's URL Advisor is disabled due to being incompatible with Firefox 35.. Dangerous Websites Blocker, Safe Money & Virtual Keyboard are also disabled due to incompatibility. Is there a fix on the way?

  • I'm Sticking With 32.03 Because I Can Sort My Favorites In This Version. So Far All The New Versions Won't Do This. Why? Am I Missing Something?

  • Hi,

    Can someone please help getting the Downloads to open in a new tab ?
    You know, like when you type [about:downloads] in the address bar.

  • VG

    ^^ You can either create a bookmark of about:downloads page or use following add-on:


  • Tried 36.0 (PortableApps.com 35.0.1 auto-updated to 36.0), did not like it: several addons I use stopped working (NoSquint, SimpleClocks) and "rolled back" to 35.0.1.
    The 36.0.1 update is available; I might try that to see if it fixed the addons problem.

  • Mozilla Firefox Browser is my the most favourite .

  • I would advise not to download and install 36.0.1! I did and had nothing but troubles until I removed it from my computer. I tried to get help from Mozilla about all the problems I were having, so many this version made me switch to Opera after more than 20 years of nothing but Firefox! Obviously the developers of these different versions have no idea as to what the unstable updates do to ones computer and the havoc it reeks upon the user.

    One used to have the option of trying beta versions but it seems as though you are not warned nor advised that the version you are downloading has many problems. I never thought that I would ever use any other Browser except Firefox! I was very disappointed when this happened and I was forced to use IE, something I had not done since switching to FF. Some people only have one computer that they use on the Internet and they are handicapped when software reeks havoc on ones computer.

  • hello sir
    I want to use win 8 explorer, taskmanager and some other app in win win 7 pc
    will you plz tell me how to do it??????

  • VG

    ^^ You can use a 3rd party theme to change Windows Explorer look and other components to look-like Windows 8.


    Regarding Task Manager:


  • Nice Post, thanks for sharing.





  • VG

    ^^ You are using very old version. I'll advise you to first uninstall 4.0 version and then reinstall a fresh copy of latest Firefox version for better performance and reliability.

  • The only thing keeping me from using Firefox is Bing. They both sound so cute and benign, especially lovable Firefox himself, who could have come directly from our most innocent childhood games. Yet adorable ads and icons notwithstanding, Firefox goes hand in hand with what is arguably THE most biased mainstream search engine in existence. That the browser has "fox" in its name is more than innocent irony. Yes, they are all corporate controlled, but Bing might as well say "brought to you by supporters of Fox News". The whole idea of the internet is free and REAL news, not controlled corporate garbage.

  • very nice

  • @VG Version 40.0 released. Most noticeable change is blue color instead of green on tabs loading

  • sebaz_ri
    and also optimized for windows 10 now

  • Mozilla has updated "Firefox" web browser to version 40.0.2
