Around 2 weeks before we reported that Yahoo would be the default search engine of Firefox. Lately Mozilla has launched Firefox 34 for Mac, Android, Linux and Windows. And yes, Yahoo is the default search option instead of Google.
Firefox 34 comes with a lot of new features, including bug fixes, a redesigned first run experience, and mirroring support for Chromecast. This feature in particular will be of interest to anyone with Google’s affordable dongle and is yet another step in the right direction for the growing list of supported applications.
There are still some bugs present however, namely those associated with users running Android Lollipop: neither flash nor MP3 playback will yet work. Here are a bunch of new features:
- Improved search bar (US English only).
- Easy theme switching through “Customization” mode.
- Improved recovery in case of browser crashing.
- HTTPS usage in Wikipedia search for secure browsing.
- Fixes in CSS transitions; they now start correctly when started at the same time as changes to display, position, overflow, and similar properties.
- Implementation of HTTP/2 (draft14) and ALPN.
- Default Search engine changed to “Yahoo” for North America.
- Default Search engine changed to “Yandex” for Belarusian, Kazakh, and Russian locales.
- Several other changes in HTML5 for developers.
