New Firefox is more stable and responsive

Mozilla has launched Firefox 48, which the company said is less susceptible to freezing and is more responsive to input.

“In Firefox 48, we aim to slowly enable multi-process Firefox (e10s) for release users, starting with one percent and ramping up to nearly half the Firefox Release if things go as expected,” it said.

e10s will offer improvements by separating Web content and Firefox UI processes.

When a web page is consuming a large part of your computer’s processing power, tabs, buttons, and menus won’t lock up, said Mozilla.

Firefox 48 also brings improvements to the browser design that make discovery easier.

“We’re making the awesome bar even more awesome. When you enter a new query, you’ll see more suggestions and a wider view of your suggestions across the screen.”

Mozilla has also redesigned the Discovery Pane at about:addons to help users personalize their browsing experience.

The new design simplifies installation for featured add-ons to one click and uses clean images and text to orientate users.

Firefox 48 also offers security improvements that enhance download protection.
