Mozilla Firefox 73 stable is out and is available for download and installation. If you have already installed Firefox, just run the browser and it will automatically be updated. You can also update Firefox to version 73 manually.

Firefox 73 includes all the features which were tested and scheduled for release in the beta version.

Along with the main thread, Firefox ESR is also updated to version 68.5.0. You can download Firefox ESR 68.5.0 from here.

Features and fixes included in Firefox 73

Global Page Zoom default

In Firefox 72 and earlier builds, users could zoom in and zoom out an individual website but it was not available as a browser default. For setting a custom zoom level, the user had to open the website and then change its zoom level from the Firefox menu.

Firefox 73 lets users set a global zoom level for the browser. That means, when the global zoom level is set, all websites will open zoomed in or out, whatever is configured.

Google Chrome already comes with this setting. So it’s a bit of catching up for Firefox on this feature.

High Contrast Mode

The problem with websites with an image background is that they can’t cope well with dark mode or even when high contrast mode is enabled. Mozilla fixed this by placing a “readability backplate” background color between the text and the background image.

This setting is especially useful for people who work with Windows high contrast mode enabled.

Other minor fixes

Improved audio quality when playing back audio at a faster or slower speed.

Firefox will now only prompt you to save logins if a field in a login form was modified.

Final thoughts

With Google Chrome leading the pack of browser wars and Microsoft coming up with Chromium-based Edge browser, it is becoming difficult for Mozilla to keep Firefox relevant.

Firefox is loved by developers for its flexibility and security features while people prefer Chrome because of speed. Which browser do you prefer for your work?
