Firefox 26 beta is out: Click to Play plugins by default, Firefox OS App Manager, and Home redesigned on Android
Following the release of Firefox 25 just two days ago, Mozilla today announced updates to its Firefox Beta channel, which is now on version 26, on desktop as well as Android. The former has Click to Play plugins and the Firefox OS App Manager, while the latter has gained a new Home design.
Mozilla released 10 patches for three versions of its Firefox browser on Tuesday, five of which are considered critical and could be used to remotely install malicious code.
The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team warned that the problems "could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code, bypass intended access restrictions, cause a denial-of-service condition or obtain sensitive information."
Another 42 days have passed which means that Mozilla will release the final version of Firefox 25 today if everything goes along as planned.
Firefox 24.0 users will receive update notifications starting later today, provided that they have not blocked the web browser from updating automatically.
