Mozilla Firefox 8 Released With More Add-on Control Features

Mozilla announced today the official release of Firefox 8, a new version of the popular open source Web browser. The modest update introduces a few new features and brings a number of minor improvements to the browser’s underlying HTML renderer. From version 8, when Firefox launches and detects that a new third-party add-on has been installed, the add-on will be disabled by default until approved by the user. When users upgrade to Firefox 8, they will be presented with a one-time dialog for approving previously installed add-ons. Another noteworthy user-facing feature in Firefox 8 is stricter control over side-loaded add-ons. Mozilla is cracking down on third-party applications that install add-ons in Firefox without the user’s knowledge or permission. Such add-ons have caused serious problems for users in the past—like the notoriously buggy Skype toolbar which Mozilla had to remotely disable earlier this year when it caused 33,000 Firefox crashes in one week.
