Mozilla has updated Firefox for Android, Linux, Mac, and Windows platforms, to offer users updated privacy options and a redesigned download manager.
The Android version of Firefox 20 will also give users the ability to customise shortcuts on the home screen and offers improved usability for handsets running ARMv6 processors.
All updated versions come with a per-tab private browsing feature, that allows Firefox users to create private tabs inside a regular window browser. Mozilla's private browsing feature allows users to search the web without data about the sites they've visited being saved.
Cookies, pages, saved form information, search bar queries, and downloaded files are not saved when viewed through a private tab. The feature can be turned on permanently or only used in specific tabs.
The Windows version of Firefox also comes with an updated version of the download manager. Mozilla touted the updated manager's ability to offer users the ability to view, monitor, and access downloaded files without having to open up another window.
For Android, Firefox now offers increased customisation and device support. The updated mobile browser lets users customise bookmark shortcuts on the home screen to allow for easy access to a users favourite websites.
Firefox for Android also includes improved support for smartphones running the ARMv6 CPU. Mozilla said the increased support means 50 million more smartphones can now run Firefox for Android.
Phones currently running the ARMv6 processor include the Samsung Galaxy Next, HTC Legend, and Samsung Galaxy Q.
Developers are getting some original features with the most recent update as well. The update includes support for getUserMedia. According to Mozilla, the feature allows developers to easily write code that accesses a smartphones camera and microphone.
Another feature for developers is a new toolbox that lets them access their tools in one window.
Mozilla's web browser is currently unavailable for Apple branded mobile devices. Last month the firm reported that Apple's inflexible App Store policies is preventing it from bringing its mobile web browser to the iPhone.
