librewolf v94 rollout

hello everyone. I released librewolf v94 on osx, it should be coming very soon for linux and windows.

main changes:

  • based on firefox v94 obviously.
  • new uBO version, which now also runs in private mode by default.
  • updated settings. the main highlights being that we enabled fission and we brought back mozilla tracking protection in strict mode by default. the ability to use a master password is also back, and the hidden letterboxing pref is exposed in about:config.

I also made some patches that change the default settings UI a bit, by hiding some locked settings, improving some description and removing the annoying “your browser is manged by your organization banner”. some old firefox references are also patched away in the process. I’m not sure if other maintainers will want to include these changes in this release tho, so don’t quote me.

for those who don’t know, the configuration has a changelog that you can check to see how prefs evolve.

the FAQ will be updated soon, once the rollout is complete. also the new website might be ready soon as well :-)

mentioned fission as “site isolation”

it will be a staged rollout on the stable channel of firefox, so we decided to go ahead and enable it. if you are still experiencing any kind of bug in this release, let us know so that we can collect some data and open a bug upstream if needed.

fission is so crucial btw. mozilla is working on some really good stuff, despite what the chromium bubble likes to say.
