Mozilla has released Firefox 68, introducing a new dark reader view, a curated list of recommended extensions, an easier way of reporting bad extensions, and new options for IT admins to customize Firefox in the enterprise.
The new dark feature for the Firefox Reader view improves on the existing controls to make the text area dark. Now, when users change the contrast to dark, the sidebars and toolbars will be "completely" in dark mode.
Mozilla has also crafted a list of recommended extensions that appear on the 'Get Add-ons' page and are aimed at enhancing extension discovery. A new 'Recommended' tag next to ones that Mozilla employees have vetted and recommend will appear in search results for extensions, as well as the addons.mozilla.org site.
There's also WebRTC, the standard for real-time video and voice communications from the browser. Firefox 68 now requires HTTPS for the camera and microphone to work, ensuring the content of communications in transit is protected and encrypted.
Mozilla has added a bunch of new enterprise IT policies for its Firefox Quantum for the enterprise browser. Mozilla has published those policies on a GitHub page. There's also a new support menu for users to flag issues with their internal support teams.
