Firefox 10 with minor updates now available
Mozilla has released finished versions of Firefox 10 for both Windows PCs and Macs this week. Changes, according to the release notes, include a Forward navigation button that doesn't show up until users hit the Back button first, included APIs for viewing web apps in full-screen mode, and anti-aliasing for WebGL graphics. Likewise new is an Extended Support Release that allows enterprises to only download security updates and stay on the same version for seven releases.
There is also newfound support for CSS3 3D-Transforms, while developers will get a new CSS-style Inspector with content highlighting and new IndexedDB APIs. A new element was added to the HTML5 code as well, allowing for bi-directional text isolation and support for CSS properties.
A browser crash when moving bookmarks has also been fixed in Firefox 10. A few issues still exist, however, including no support for Mac computers running on PowerPC processors, jerky scrolling and text inputs under some conditions, and crashing when attempting to run Firefox using a locked profile. Some synaptic touchpads aren't able to scroll vertically, and scrolling in the Gmail window is slow as well.
