* Processes used for background tabs now use efficiency mode on Windows 11 to limit resource use.
* The shift+esc keyboard shortcut now opens the [Process Manager](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/task-manager-tabs-or-extensions-are-slowing-firefox), offering a way to quickly identify processes that are using too many resources.
* Improved frame scheduling when under load; this substantially improves Firefox’s MotionMark scores.
* Firefox now supports properly color correcting images tagged with ICCv4 profiles.
* Support for non-English characters when saving and printing PDF forms.
* The bookmarks toolbar's default "Only show on New Tab" state works correctly for blank new tabs. As before, you can change the bookmark toolbar's behavior using the toolbar context menu.

Version 105.0, first offered to Release channel users on September 20, 2022
* Added an option to print only the current page from the print preview dialog.
* Firefox now supports partitioned service workers in third-party contexts. You can register service workers in a third-party iframe and it will be partitioned under the top-level domain.
* Swipe to navigate (two fingers on a touchpad swiped left or right to perform history back or forward) on Windows is now enabled.
* Firefox is now compliant with the User Timing L3 specification, which adds additional optional arguments to the performance.mark and performance.measure methods to provide custom start times, end times, duration, and attached details.
* Searching in large lists for individual items is now 2x faster. This performance enhancement replaces array.includes and array.indexOf with an optimized SIMD version.
* Stability on Windows is significantly improved as Firefox handles low-memory situations much better.
* Touchpad scrolling on macOS was made more accessible by reducing unintended diagonal scrolling opposite of the intended scroll axis.
* Firefox is less likely to run out of memory on Linux and performs more efficiently for the rest of the system when memory runs low.
* Various [security](https://www.mozilla.org/security/advisories/mfsa2022-40/) fixes.
Various bug fixes and new policies have been implemented in the latest version of Firefox. You can find more information in the [Firefox for Enterprise 105 Release Notes](https://support.mozilla.org/kb/firefox-enterprise-105-release-notes).
Support for the Offscreen Canvas DOM API with full context and font support. The [OffscreenCanvas API](https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/API/OffscreenCanvas) provides a canvas that can be rendered off-screen in both Window and Web Worker contexts.
I would like to see all posts on lemmy translated automatically. But right now I use the `Simple Translate` plugin and I have to select the text to see the translation. How can I simply select a language and see everything in that language?
**Version 103.0, first offered to Release channel users on July 26, 2022**
- Improved responsiveness on macOS during periods of high CPU load by switching to a modern lock API.
- Do you always forget something? Required fields are now highlighted in PDF forms.
- Improved performance on high-refresh rate monitors (120Hz+).
- Enjoying [Picture-in-Picture](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-picture-picture-firefox) subtitles feature? It just got better: you can now change subtitles font size directly from the PiP window. Additionally, PiP subtitles are now available at Funimation, Dailymotion, Tubi, Hotstar, and SonyLIV.
- Buttons in the Tabs toolbar can now be reached with Tab, Shift+Tab, and Arrow keys. View [this article](https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/access-toolbar-functions-using-keyboard?_gl=1*16it7nj*_ga*MTEzNjg4MjY5NC4xNjQ1MjAxMDU3*_ga_MQ7767QQQW*MTY1Njk2MzExMS43LjEuMTY1Njk2MzIzMy4w) for additional details.
- Windows' "Make text bigger" accessibility setting now affects all the UI and content pages, rather than only applying to system font sizes.
- Rejoice! You can now conveniently access Firefox, which will now be pinned to the Windows taskbar during installation on Windows 10 and 11. (This will also allow for Firefox to be launched quicker after installing.)
- Non-breaking spaces are now preserved—preventing automatic line breaks—when copying text from a form control.
- Fixed WebGL performance issues on NVIDIA binary drivers via DMA-Buf on Linux.
- Fixed an issue in which Firefox startup could be significantly slowed down by the processing of Web content local storage. This had the greatest impact on users with platter hard drives and significant local storage.
- Various [security](https://www.mozilla.org/security/advisories/mfsa2022-28/) fixes.
- Removed a configuration option to allow SHA-1 signatures in certificates: SHA-1 signatures in certificates—long since determined to no longer be secure enough—are now not supported.
Your information now has increased protection from online tracking via Total Cookie Protection enabled by default. All third-party cookies are now isolated into partitioned storage.
I know some of us linux users use SMPlayer not just for movies but also for watching YouTube videos on it. If you watch just one or two videos a day, that's fine, but if you watch everything through it, it can be tedious to copy every single link, then open SMPlayer and open the "add link" function.
About a year ago or so I discovered this cool extension which is intended primarily for browsers only but in reality it can be used for any program, probably even for PC games, altough I haven't tried that yet. :)
The extension's name is "Open With" and it does exactly what the name suggests - opens a page with another application that can accept URL addresses. It sends the address to another application which is what makes it perfect to watch videos with your favorite video player.
All you need to do is install the extension, open its settings and follow the instruction there to make it work. It's best if you put the python file inside ~/.mozilla, so that you don't have to worry about the file ever being moved somewhere else. The extension is supposed to work on both Linux and Windows but I've never been able to make it work on Windows.
After that it's pretty simple - click "Add browser", navigate to smplayer.desktop or vlc.desktop in /usr/share/applications (local applications also works, if you have placed a .desktop file there), navigate to the icon for your video player and that's it! Now you can open YouTube in Firefox, right click on any video and select "Open With" --------> your video player.
