Firefox v43 introduces audio indicator, reading list tweaks and more

Firefox for Android has been updated to version 43, which includes a new audio indicator, improvements to accessibility, reading list tweaks and more.

Published onDecember 16, 2015


After plenty of beta tests and little updates, Mozilla’s Firefox browser has received a new stable version today – version 43. Included in the package is a selection of new features, both under the hood and some that you will notice more readily. So here’s what’s new.

For starters, users can now mark items in their reading list as read or unread, which is handy for keeping track of articles. There’s also a new audio indicator to signify which open tabs are currently playing something through your speakers or headphones. Tablet users will also notice a new split pane style for the history panel when in landscape mode.

Firefox also has some new accessibility improvements for scrolling, zooming, braille and context menus in Talkback screen reader. The toolbar menu has also been updated to match the latest Android UI design guidelines with a grey rather than black tint, so Firefox will better match up with the look of your other Android apps, if you care about that sort of thing.

Under the hood there is improved API support for m4v videos and a number of security fixes to keep you better protected against the unsavoury web elements out there.

The update should apply automatically if you have Firefox downloaded from the Google Play store. If not, you can grab the popular web browser using the link below.
