Firefox is a user friendly and easy to use tool due to its awesome features. This app has a security feature where it uses a sandbox security model and limits scripts from accessing data from other web sites based on the same-origin policy. The tool uses a secure sockets layer (SSL)/ transport layer security (TLS) to protect communications with other web servers using strong cryptography when using the HTTPS protocol. This tool supports tabbed browsing meaning that the user is able to open multiple websites in a singular browser window.
With the tabbed browsing feature, the user can also open web pages in new tabs, and switch between them by clicking the tabs they want to view. The tool has a spelling check feature, and this means that the user is able to correct even the worst spelling mistakes in their writing. Firefox has a smart bookmark feature whereby the user is able to use a specific search engine regularly since a smart bookmark is used to add a search to the address bar. Firefox has a download manager feature, which means that the user has the ability to pause, resume or restart downloads.
In the download manager feature, the user can also accelerate download speeds by downloading from multiple sources. Firefox has a private browsing feature, which allows users on shared computers to browse the internet without saving any information about which sites they have visited. Firefox has a built-in Mycroft Web search function features extensible search engine list. Firefox includes plugins for Google and Yahoo by default.

Bug 1391297 - Update MAR to sha384 past 56.0b4 in update-packaging Makefile.
Bug 1390002 - There are some paths to find out if dwrite is enabled, which inits gfxPlatform, which requires information from PopulateScreenInfo, which depends on the refresh driver existing. At this time however, we haven't initialized our vsync source so we crash. This moves vsync initialization earlier in the gfx pipeline.
Bug 1388166 - Handle case where chromeWin.getBrowser() doesn't exist.
Bug 1350152 - Don't rely on gBrowser in nsLoginManagerPrompter. In bug 1266836 we fixed this code to properly work in e10s, but made the mistake of using gBrowser in toolkit code, breaking XUL apps that don't have a gBrowser. This solution implements a different code-path for non-e10s and returns a chrome window for consumers that don't offer a browser.

New features include support for WebVR, making Firefox the first Windows desktop browser to support VR experiences. Performance changes include significantly faster startup times when restoring lots of tabs and settings that let users take greater control of our new multi-process architecture. We’ve also upgraded the address bar to make finding what you want easier, with search suggestions and the integration of our one-click search feature, and safer, by prioritizing the secure - https - version of sites when possible.
