Firefox 62.0 Beta 18
Management of browser add-ons in Mozilla Firefox
Mozilla Firefox is a fast, lightweight and neat open source web browser. At its public launch in 2004, Mozilla Firefox was the first browser to challenge the dominance of Microsoft Internet Explorer. Since then, Mozilla Firefox has regularly appeared in the top 3 most popular browsers in the world. The key features that have made the popularity of Mozilla Firefox are the simple and effective user interface, the browser speed and the high security capabilities. The browser is particularly appreciated by developers thanks to its open source development and its active community of advanced users.
Mozilla has put a lot of resources into creating a simple but effective user interface aimed at making navigation faster and easier. They created the tab structure that has been adopted by most other browsers. In recent years, Mozilla has also focused on maximizing the navigation area by simplifying Toolbar controls on a Firefox button (containing parameters and options) and Previous / Next buttons. The URL box offers a direct search on Google as well as an automatic forecast / history function called Awesome Bar. On the right side of the URL box, there are bookmark, history, and refresh buttons. To the right of the URL box is a search box that allows you to customize your search engine options. Apart from that, a display button controls what you see under the URL. Beside that, you have download history and home buttons.
Firefox was the first browser to introduce a private browsing feature that allows you to use the Internet more anonymously and securely. The history, searches, passwords, downloads, cookies and cached content are all deleted at closing. Minimize the risks that another user steals your identity or finds confidential information. Content security, anti-phishing technology and anti-virus / malware integration ensure that your browsing experience is as safe as possible.
Customization and development
One of the best features of the Firefox user interface is the customization. Simply right-click on the navigation toolbar to customize individual components or simply drag and drop the items you want to move. The Firefox Add-on Manager lets you discover and install add-ons in the browser, as well as view ratings, recommendations, and descriptions.

Authors and site authors can create advanced content and applications with the help of Mozilla's open source platform and improved API.
