Mozilla releases Firefox 40 for Windows 10

Mozilla has released a new version of Firefox for Windows 10 OS. Announcing this on its official blog, Mozilla said in a blog post that although the default browser was set to Microsoft Edge by Windows, it had created support materials to show users how to restore or choose Firefox as the  default browser in Windows 10.

Firefox also helped users preserve their choice when using the search field on the Windows 10 taskbar to search the Web. When using this search field, Windows 10 launched the default browser but only showed search results in Microsoft Bing. When you have Firefox set as your default browser on Windows 10, all the Web searches from the taskbar search field would show results in the default search engine the user chose in Firefox.

Making Third Party Add-ons Safer in Firefox

Mozilla further said it had taken steps to ensure that using add-ons was a “safe & secure” experience for users. 1 of them was to announce a process to certify add-ons based on guidelines it had provided to add-on developers.

In future releases of Firefox, any third-party add-ons that had not been certified would be disabled by default. Starting right now, users would start seeing warnings next to unsigned add-ons in Firefox, but no add-ons will be automatically disabled. These warnings would inform users about add-ons that had not been certified by Mozilla.
