Firefox 83 will self switch you to secure HTTPS sites

Mozilla Firefox has launched a new security feature with firefox83 that can make sure you are always establishing a secure connection to every website that you visit. When the new HTTPS-only mode is switched on, the browser will automatically connect to the HTTPS version of a page, even if you manually type HTTP in the address bar or click on a legacy HTTP link from search results. Further, firefox will ask for your permission to load websites that aren’t encrypted via HTTPS in any way.

The browser will display firefox an error message that explains the security risk of connecting to a non-HTTPS website before you can click through to load it. In case a page has a certain HTTP element such as images that refuses to load in HTTPS-only mode, though, you can temporarily disable the feature by clicking on the lock icon next to the URL in the address bar. To switch the feature on for the first time, you‘ll have to go “privacy &security” in preferences and chose “Enable HTTPS- Only Mode in all windows”

Also to the new security feature, Firefox83 also introduces pinch-zooming on window devices with touchscreens and Mac computers through the touchpad. You can now also fast forward and rewind videos using arrow keys in the browser’s picture-in-picture windows. The update comes with improved search features and page load performances, as well. Mozilla says Firefox 83loads websites than older versions, thanks to significant updates to the Javascript engine.
