Firefox 99 Available With Strengthened Linux Sandbox, Web MIDI
Firefox 99 is a modest release with several changes this month worth noting for this cross-platform, open-source web browser.
Firefox 99's Linux sandbox has been strengthened so the processes exposed to web content no longer have access to any underlying X11 server. Firefox 99 did enable GTK overlay scrollbar support during nightly and early beta releases as another Linux-specific improvement but that functionality is disabled for the stable release.
Other changes with Firefox 99 include PDF viewer search support with/without diacritics, toggling the narrate in reader mode functionality via the "n" keyboard shortcut, and user-agent string testing around compatibility with next month's Firefox 100 (three digit version) release.
That about wraps up the notable changes of Firefox 99. Ahead of Mozilla's official announcement, Firefox 99.0 can be downloaded from the Mozilla.org server.
