Mozilla Firefox 89

Mozilla heeft versie 89 van zijn Firefox-webbrowser uitgebracht. In deze versie is de interface van de browser vernieuwd. De nieuwe interface heeft de naam Proton en bevat een vernieuwde tabbladbalk bovenaan en menu's in de browser. In macOS ondersteunt Firefox nu elastisch scrollen net als in andere applicaties en zien de menu's er op dat besturingssysteem beter uit. Die contextmenu's zijn nu namelijk native en ondersteunen donkere modus. Andere nieuwigheden bevinden zich in de optie om een screenshot te maken als je met de rechtermuisknop klikt op een webpagina en verbeterde bescherming tegen tracking in privémodus.

Versie 89 bevat ook een reeks aan beveiligingsfixes. Je vindt de volledige changelog van Mozilla Firefox 89 hieronder, evenals links en instructies om de browser te installeren of te updaten.


Om te updaten naar Mozilla Firefox 89, klik je in Windows op de drie strepen rechts naast de adresbalk en ga je naar Help en dan Over Firefox. Op Mac klik je in de menubalk op Firefox en dan Over Firefox. Wacht even totdat de update is binnengehaald en klik dan op Herstarten om Firefox bij te werken. Je kunt de update ook handmatig downloaden en installeren.

  • Say hello to a fresh new Firefox, designed to get you where you want to go even faster. We’ve redesigned and modernized the core experience to be cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use. You’ll notice a number of changes, including:
    • Simplified browser chrome and toolbar: Less frequently used items removed to focus on the most important navigation items.
    • Clear, streamlined menus: Re-organized and prioritized menu content according to usage. Updated labels and removed iconography.
    • Updated prompts: Infobars, panels, and modals have a cleaner design and clearer language.
    • Inspired tab design: Floating tabs neatly contain information and surface cues when you need them, like visual indicators for audio controls. The rounded design of the active tab supports focus and signals the ability to easily move the tab as needed.
    • Fewer interruptions: Reduced number of alerts and messages, so you can browse with fewer distractions.
    • Cohesive, calmer visuals: Lighter iconography, a refined color palette, and more consistent styling throughout.
  • This release also includes enhancements to our privacy offerings:
  • For macOS users, we're introducing the elastic overscroll effect known from many other applications. A gentle bouncing animation will indicate that you reached the end of the page.
    In addition, we added support for smart zoom. Double-tap with two fingers on your trackpad, or with a single finger on your Magic Mouse, to zoom the content below your cursor into focus.
  • Native context menus: Context menus on macOS are now native and support Dark Mode.


  • Colors in Firefox on macOS will no longer be saturated on wide gamut displays, untagged images are properly treated as sRGB, and colors in images tagged as sRGB will now match CSS colors.
  • In full screen mode on macOS, moving your mouse to the top of the screen will no longer hide your tabs behind the system menu bar.
  • Also in full screen mode on macOS, it is now possible to hide the browser toolbars for a fully immersive full screen experience. This brings macOS in line with Windows and Linux.
  • Various stability and security fixes.


  • Introducing a non-native implementation of web form controls, which delivers a new modern design and some improvements to page load performance. Watch for layout bugs in web pages that make assumptions about the dimensions or styling of form controls.
  • The screenshots feature is available in the right-click context menu. You can also add a screenshots shortcut to your toolbar. Learn more.



  • Better keyboard navigation for editable BoxModel properties in the Inspector panel
