Firefox 59 lets you turn Firefox into default Assist app

Mozilla has released Firefox Quantum 59, with faster load times for content on your homepage, as well as cached pages.

Users will be able to drag-and-drop to rearrange Top Sites on the Firefox Home page, and customise new windows and tabs, while additions to Firefox Screenshots will allow users to add basic annotation by drawing on and highlighting saved screenshots. The recent update from Firefox allows Youtube to feature in Amazon Fire TV and other features like syncing. As one would expect, one of the biggest updates to the web browser is the faster load times, which has been achieve by allowing the program to load up via a networked cache (i.e. loading a cache on the user storage). The Private Browsing mode meanwhile will remove path information from referrers sent to third parties.

On Firefox for Android, support for sites that stream video using the HLS protocol has also been added, said Mozilla. After you've done that, when you long press your home button, you will get Firefox to help you search for whatever you need from the Internet. By using Windows Group Policy, Windows Administrators can set policies and deploy the managed Firefox Quantum browser to employee's PCS.

Firefox Quantum is powered by a new cutting-edge engine that takes full advantage of today's multi-core systems.

Firefox 59 offers improved privacy as well.

Jack Wallen walks you through the process of managing both default and site permissions with Firefox Quantum, so you can enjoy a more secure and reliable browsing experience.
