Netflix Support Introduced In Linux With DRM In Firefox By Mozilla

Mozilla Firefox Support

Mozilla Browser Support

Recently, Mozilla announced the inclusion of digital restrictions management, which would be based on proprietary HTML5. This will be used for media streaming services in the Firefox web browser. Mozilla Firefox support has been introduced with Linux recently. Firefox will have EME and CDM encryption included which some of the other browsers have already had. This is to make sure that the latest version is better than its predecessors.

The company has admitted about reluctant retreat as they have planned to end support implementation of Silverlight and Flash. The company added that when they put an end to these implementations, they will be left behind from other competitors, in case they did not allow people to use DRM standards adopted by the W3C in Mozilla Firefox browsers. In the recent months, there has been many vulnerable malware and other attacks targeted on Silverlight and Flash.

Some of the opponents argue that this is yet another instance of music companies, Hollywood studios and many more wrestling away from users and software houses to safeguard copy write issues. Moreover, they argued that the users should have the right to choose. Now Linux users will experience mixed feelings, as this decision is going to be against the open source software services. Moreover, this is the first time that DRM is being implemented in Mozilla Firefox browsers.

Mitchell Baker, the chairperson of Mozilla, announced in one of the blog posts that they desperately want to see some changes in the current system. Moreover, it is unfortunate that in order to make changes to the DRM industry, it is not enough if Mozilla alone

DRM Implementation In Firefox

takes appropriate initiates. When you look back into history, Mozilla has managed to bring some changes in the industry. They want to continue the same at present and in the future. Nevertheless, they are unable to make changes when it comes to DRM without potential help from other people.

Through middleware from Adobe, the implementations will be provided. These will only be for Firefox desktop version. But Mozilla has not given a time frame for the same for the deployment in the changes made. Firefox users are waiting for the implementation of DRM in Firefox. Apart from these, Mozilla is also planning to find an alternative to DRM implementation. And just the way Netflix has its own ISP, currently Mozilla is grudgingly going alone for the time being. We need to wait and watch to see how this Mozilla Firefox support news eventually turns out.

Benefits Of Using Mozilla Firefox OS

Mozilla Support

         Mozilla Support And Help

You might know what Mozilla is? It is a free software community which is involved in the development of the popular Firefox web browser. Firefox OS is one of the latest technological developments in the OS universe. Mozilla recently developed the Firefox OS which has now gained a huge momentum across the globe. The anticipation was too great, so much so that users would wonder what some of the benefits of using Mozilla Firefox OS are. In this article we will discuss some of the features.

Cost of the device

The Firefox OS powered device need not be costly. Actually, due to the advanced technologies used in the device, the great thing is that you need not have high powered processors or lots of RAM space, since the Mozilla support Firefox OS basically is a browser. Because of this, the hardware requirement is pretty low compared to other low-priced computing devices. Don’t think that the performance is compromised or sacrificed. That is not at all the case. The device performance is on similar level with other such devices.

Social Networking

Now, this OS is not like many others you see. Mozilla support the use of social networks. This means that if you are really active in social networks, Firefox OS is probably the best OS for you. This is because the core operating system is strongly integrated with Twitter and Facebook, two of the largest social media networks available today. Now, even if you spend your day watching YouTube, don’t worry, there is an official YouTube app for the Firefox Operating System. Again, if you love social networking, you will no way regret using this new OS.

Reduced Data Consumption

Due to some of the compression technologies used by the free software community Mozilla for Firefox OS, when you are a mobile device user or a smart phone user who purchases small internet data packs or volume, more often you will be saving your data by using the Firefox Operating System. Since it will consume very less data compared to other Smartphones, Firefox OS has a huge advantage in this case. This is made possible due to the free software community’s special web compression technique.

These were some of the benefits of Firefox OS. There is one major problem when it comes to the number of applications available. Compared to iOS, Android and Windows Phone, the number of applications available is far less.

Firefox Signs Up For Yahoo’s Search Services

Mozilla Firefox Help

              Firefox Default Search

The creators of the famous Firefox browser, Mozilla Foundation, have announced that they’ll be splitting up with Google, which has been their main search engine partner for a decade now. The organization is planning to go with Yahoo! as their provider. This will be the default search option in the Firefox browser from now on. The deal is on for the next five years.

The Firefox browser has always provided the option to choose the search engine the user wished to use. But for the past 10 years, the default option has been Google. They got huge payments from the Search mogul for allowing this, and this actually made up a whopping 90% of the foundation’s earnings in 2012.

Firefox isn’t the same browser it once was. Back in the day, it was the logical alternative to the unwieldy Internet Explorer from Microsoft. But since then, it has steadily lost users to better browsers like Google’s Chrome. The Mozilla Firefox help forums have been seeing less activity as well.

Mozilla hasn’t been doing as well as could be hoped. In the past year, CEO Brendan Eich publicized his anti-gay stance, and was driven to resignation because of it. And even before that, the company had announced they were going to let advertising in, and this didn’t sit well with longtime users.

How does tying in with Mozilla Firefox help Yahoo? The latter is apparently having a field day with this, with CEO Marissa Mayer stating that this would allow chances for “investment, opportunity and growth“. Where they’re standing right now, these companies could certainly use one another’s help. Mozilla needs the cash, and Yahoo needs the chance to get their search engine out more.

                  Yahoo And Firefox

Looking at this from the internet viewpoint, you wouldn’t think much of the announcement. Google is the leading player in the search sphere, and they seem pretty capable of staying at the top for years to come. The Chrome browser is outdone only by IE in popularity; Mozilla isn’t about to pose Google serious competition anytime soon.

If there’s a group of people who will be happy with the new tie-up, it’s the ones who don’t approve of what Google does to stay ahead in the game. To these users, it will come as good news that there’s something more approvable to look forward to, at least for the next five years. It wouldn’t hurt to hedge your bets though, because there’s no saying what will happen.

Mozilla Reveals The New Firefox Hello

Mozilla Support

                 Mozilla Information

Mozilla support would like to share great news for Mozilla fans out there. Firefox users need not download and run the proprietary software for online and voice chats. This will happen as and when the project by the makers of the highly popular Firefox browser becomes available for everyone to use. Now it is in the test phase. When it releases, it can potentially change many things.

You might be aware of the Mozilla Foundation. The maker of Firefox browser is actually free software community, which is popularly known, as we all know, for developing the Firefox web browser. The software community develops, spreads and supports various Mozilla products. Mozilla support promoting various software products for the purpose of offering exclusively free and useful software and open standards for everyone to use. With some exceptions, most Mozilla products are available for free. The Mozilla community is supported institutionally by the Mozilla Foundation as well as its subsidiary, the Mozilla Corporation.

Firefox Hello is what the new service will be named and it is initially available on Mozilla Firefox Beta and makes it possible for users to “chat with anyone regardless of what browser the other person is using,” as per a PC world report.

“Firefox Hello is more than just a feelgood alternative to services like Microsoft’s Skype, Apple’s Facetime and Google Hangouts; it’s a way to communicate that doesn’t require the recipient to jump through any hoops. If you’ve ever tried to video chat with a far-flung relative and don’t know what software or services they use, there’s real utility in a chat option that doesn’t particularly care,” it was mentioned in the report.

                  Mozilla News

Another thing the report mentioned is that the service requires no special software or plugins. The only thing it will require is that both web browsers in the conversation should support WebRTC. There are other browsers, which natively support WebRTC. We are talking about the popular Google Chrome and the Opera browser.

Moreover, under the setup, a call recipient will be able to get a callback link “and start chatting with no login or extra steps required.”

The users of Mozilla Firefox will receive added benefits, as they will be getting to contact your fellow Firefox users with just one click. This way, you need not share a callback link. The service sure looks exciting. Let us see how popular it gets. From the look of it, Firefox Hello has every ingredient to become an instant hit.

Mozilla Teams Up With Tor Network To Streamline Browsing Privacy

              Privacy Options In Firefox

With its user friendly interface, great features and increased privacy options, Mozilla’s Firefox web browser has been securing a great share of the web browser market. Although the introduction of Chrome caused it to lose a few of its users, Firefox is still popular because of its tight browsing privacy options. Mozilla has made it very clear to the users that its primary objective is to create a better atmosphere for internet browsing. And that obviously means privacy. No user likes to be monitored during his/her web browsing session. Mozilla, in its recent post said that it is devising new tools and options to streamline privacy options in Firefox.

Firefox to collaborate with Tor network to boost browsing security and privacy

According to Mozilla Firefox support desk, the company has decided to collaborate with Tor Network to boost internet browsing privacy and security options for Firefox. The browser developer has named this project as Polaris. The recently released builds for Firefox has been integrated with first group of Polaris tweaks. In addition to Mozilla and the Tor Network, the Polaris project is supported by one more partner that also happens to be a non-profit and open source: the Centre for Democracy and Technology. The object of the project, as it has been reported to some tech journals, is to develop advanced privacy technology for web browsing. It also aims at safeguarding user data.

Recent reports show that Mozilla has started reclaiming its market share in the recent months after several bug and security issues have been reported with its key rivals such as Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. Firefox adoption has been significant after the Tor integration.

Mozilla looks forward to making major changes in browsing pattern

Report has it that Mozilla is looking forward to making major changes in the Firefox browsing patterns. As part of its plans, it will ensure blocking of certain contents from advertisers outright in contrast to what it had been following in the past. In the past, Mozilla would penalize the advertisers who send unsolicited contents to the browser just like how other web browsers did. Interestingly, in the new scheme, the ad contents are going to be strictly blocked unless users wish otherwise.

According to Mozilla Firefox support, the web browser is making a strong comeback. Firefox is the top web browser in many countries. With the integration of Tor, Mozilla hopes to make it to the top of the list.

Mozilla Working To Rid MiTM Attacks In Firefox 32

Mozilla Firefox Support

             Mozilla Firefox 32

The latest browser update from Mozilla, Firefox 32, comes with additional public-key pinning support. The new feature is aimed at minimizing man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attacks, as well as the use of rogue certificates. The new version also brings patches for many of the security vulnerabilities faced until now.

The key pinning provision has been introduced to make sure that people browsing the web get where they need to. This is commonly not the case – fake sites hosting malware show up in the browser window. From now on, site operators will be able to specify the authorities which issued them the relevant certificates. They wouldn’t have to settle for built-in root certificates that come with the version of Firefox the user has.

The browser checks the certificate chain from the site against previously verified ones, and in the case of a match, the lock icon stays as normal. Otherwise you get a pinning error while you try entering the site. A company spokesperson said this error could also happen if the certificate authority wrongly issues a certificate. This is the most effective way yet, of adding security to the way sites put out their TLS.

There is basic Mozilla Firefox support for limited pinned domains in the browser, and this includes their official domain, as well as Twitter. Further releases will bring support for Chromium, Tor and Dropbox pinsets, among others.

Public-Key Pinning Support

          Firefox Certificates

Version 32 effectively requires that acceptable CA’s must concur with the time the pinned domain was built. You have the pinning feature enabled by default. Many sites are putting it out that they offer support for an extension for HTTP, which Firefox is planning to use soon. Firefox also fixes two other vital use-after-free errors. Their security team discovered a use-after-free using the Address Sanitizer tool. This was found while accessing SVG content using DOM with animating SVG content. The browser crashed when something like this happened.

The remaining flaw which the update fixed, involves a use-after-free during text layout, with the text direction setting enabled. The problem this error causes is that the code is executed randomly. Firefox 32 also deals with a few memory bugs, as well as three minor security holes.

That was some information on Mozilla Firefox support for pinned domains in their latest browser update. Check out other posts here for more information on the same.

Mozilla Firefox Help

Slow Running Firefox Browser

Over the years, Mozilla Firefox has enjoyed a wide popularity and has a lot of users.

Although Mozilla Firefox is one of the fastest and most intelligent browsers available, with extended functionality due to the wide range of available extensions, Firefox starts running slow over time. There can be several different reasons behind the slow web browsing experience, and systematically figuring out the cause is the first step of finding a solution.

    Speeding Up Firefox Browser

  • Clean the system cache of Firefox. Make sure that you have saved all the relevant data and have closed the session before you do so. Firefox and other software develop a huge system cache over time. Deleting the cache will delete any saved password you have. However, you will see an appreciable improvement in speed.
  • Delete the browser history files including every single entry. Half of the data is junk and should be removed on regular intervals.
  • If you still feel the web browser requires further improvement in performance, check through the different extensions that run in Firefox web browser and try disabling them. If you can, remove all the unwanted extensions because these codes add on to the web browser and slows it down. Keep the number of toolbars and extensions down to the bare minimum.

If you follow the procedure recommended above, you will notice that the web browser will speed up and give you the enhanced browsing experience you wish to have. If you are still having problems with the web browser, you can contact our Mozilla Firefox help and support team.
