Browsing Made Easy

Awesome Bar

Awesome Bar screenshot

Get to your favorite sites quickly – even if you don’t remember the
URLs. Type your term into the location bar (aka the Awesome Bar) and the
autocomplete function will include possible matches from your browsing
history, bookmarked sites and open tabs.

The Awesome Bar learns as you use it—over time, it adapts to your
preferences and offers better-fitting matches. We’ve tweaked it to give
you greater control over the results (including privacy settings) and
increased performance so you find what you need even faster.

Improved Interface

We’re always looking for ways to make your browsing easier and more

Tabs on Top

Tabs are above the Awesome Bar to make it easier to focus on the
content of the sites you visit.

Browse multiple sites at once, simply and easily. Each new site appears
as a new tab

(not a new window) and can be accessed in one click.

App Tabs

Take sites you always keep open—like Web mail—off your tab bar and
give them a permanent home in your browser.

Reopen Closed Tabs and Windows

If you accidentally close a tab or window, you can reopen it in one
click. Just view Recently Closed Tabs or Recently Closed Windows in
the History menu and select the tab or window you’d like to reopen.


As you’re opening a new tab or typing in the Awesome Bar, Firefox
will check to see if you already have that site open. If you do,
you’ll be directed to the existing tab so you don’t open a duplicate.

Smooth Scrolling

Like to have all 20 of your favorite pages open at once? An elegant
new feature lets you scroll through tabs easily to see them all and
access the one you want quickly.

Organize your Tabs with Panorama

Too many tabs? Reclaim your browser from tab clutter! Panorama lets
you drag and drop your tabs into manageable groups that you can
organize, name and arrange in a fun and visual way. To get started
with Panorama, simply select the Tab Groups icon when you customize
your Navigation Toolbar or right click any tab to Move to Group.

Sync screenshot

Stay in Sync

Sync seamlessly connects your desktop and mobile Firefoxes, so you can
access your browsing history, passwords, bookmarks and even open tabs no
matter which device you use. Access years of desktop browsing the first
day you fire up your mobile, and use saved passwords from your desktop to
fill out forms on your phone.

Now you can surf the Web on your desktop, get up in the middle of
browsing and have your open tabs ready and waiting on your mobile, just as
you left them. Your browsing will never be the same!

Password Manager

Tired of trying to remember or retype your passwords every time you
visit a favorite site? Firefox is here to help! You’ll be prompted with
a non-intrusive option to remember passwords when you first log in—after
that, Firefox will take care of the rest.

Form Complete

When you’re filling out an online form like your shipping address,
Firefox will suggest information for each field based on your most
common answers for similar fields in other forms. Tired of typing out
the same answers over and over? You’ll be zipping through the forms in
no time!

Pop-Up Blocker

Banish pop-ups (and pop-under windows) from your surfing experience
once and for all. Or, find a happy medium: choose to view blocked
pop-ups or create an “allow” list of sites whose pop-ups you’re okay
with seeing.

Easy Search

The Web is a big place, but Firefox is ready to help you find whatever
you’re looking for.

Integrated Web Search

Searching the Web is a breeze with the search box, located just to
the right of your location bar. Select the search engine of your
choice and enter your search terms into the box. The box width is even
adjustable if you need more space.

Search Suggestions

Start typing in the search bar and it will prompt you with a drop
down of filled-in suggestions. You can even use the search bar as a
calculator, converter and more.

Hundreds of Search Engines

Choose from the preset dropdown list of search options or select
“manage search engines” to browse for many more search-related
out your choices.

Search screenshot

Smart Keywords

Search the Web in record time with smart keywords. With a few
clicks you can assign keywords to search engines, and then simply
enter your key and search words in the location bar. Assigning “books”
to Amazon.com means you can type in a search like “books about home
building” and zip right there, with no pausing on the Amazon home

Location-Aware Browsing

Need directions, or help finding a restaurant? Firefox can tell
sites where you’re located so you can get the most relevant and useful
information. The browser won’t share your location without your
permission, either – your privacy is the top priority.

Session Restore

Session Restore instantly brings back your windows and tabs,
restoring text you entered and any in-progress downloads. You can
restart the browser without losing your place after you install an
add-on or software update. And, if Firefox or your computer unexpectedly
closes, you don’t have to spend time recovering data or retracing your
steps through the Web. If you’re in the middle of typing an email,
you’ll pick up where you left off, even down to the last word you typed.

Spell Checking

A built-in spell checker works directly in Web pages, like blog posts
and email. Save yourself a step and stop worrying about typos.

Get Organized

There’s a lot of great stuff on the Web, Firefox is full of ways to
help you keep track.

One-Click Bookmarking screenshot
One-Click Bookmarking

Manage your bookmarks a lot or a little. One click on the star icon
at the end of the location bar bookmarks a site. Two clicks and you can
choose where to save it and whether to tag it. File bookmarked sites in
easy-to-access folders and organize according to theme (like “job
search” or “favorite shopping”). Find your bookmarked sites in a flash
by entering the tag, page or bookmark name into the location bar. The
more you use your tags and bookmark names in the location bar, the more
the system will adapt to your preferences.


Label a site with names or categories that are meaningful to you.
For example, you can label both
and www.nytimes.com
with the “news” tag. When you enter “news” into the location bar, both
sites will be shown as results. A single site can have multiple tags,
and there’s no limit to the number of tags you can create. You may not
remember the exact name of a site, but with a tag, you’ll be able to
find it easily.


Make your browser as efficient as you can imagine. Your browsing
history and your bookmarks are archived in the Library, where they can
be easily searched and organized. As your bookmark list and history
grow, you can save your frequent searches in automatically updated
smart folders.

Search and Find

The find feature appears with a simple keystroke. Search for a word
or phrase on an open Web page. Highlight text before using the feature
and the finder opens pre-filled with your selection. See all instances
of your search at once, or scroll backwards and forwards through any
appearances of the word on the page.

RSS Feed Reader

Spending hours combing the Web for the latest news and updates?
Instead, add an RSS feed icon to your toolbar and create feeds using an
online web service, a client-side feed reader or by creating a Firefox
Live Bookmark.

Download Manager

Download files seamlessly and securely! A pause and resume feature
means you can stop and start anytime. So, if you’re halfway through
downloading a big file and it’s time to catch the bus, just pause and
pick up where you left off later. The resume function also works if your
system crashes or is forced to restart. The manager shows your download
progress and even lets you search your files by name or the Web address
where the download came from.

Offline Browsing

Take your computer offline and still have your information at your
fingertips. Certain sites may allow applications—like your Web-based
email—to stay with you at all times.

Full Zoom

Want to see captions and pictures in a larger size? An elegant new
zoom feature lets you swoop in and see the details on web pages, zeroing
in on what matters. The pages will scale equally, with all the elements
of layout changing at the same level.

Naturalized Look & Feel

The Firefox platform looks and feels like home. Think of it as a
Firefox who’s really good at making friends. Whether you use Windows 7,
Mac or Linux, the browser seamlessly integrates into your computer’s
environment. A native look makes for a flawless interface that never
gives you pause.

Super Speed

With faster start-up times, rapid graphics rendering and improved
page load speed, the latest version of Firefox is full of major
performance improvements you’ll notice instantly. From integrating
Compartments and more efficiently managing JavaScript objects to
supporting ECMAScript5 and improvements to the JägerMonkey JavaScript

Hardware Acceleration

Crash Protection

Firefox provides uninterrupted browsing when there is a crash in the
plugins for Adobe Flash, Apple QuickTime or Microsoft Silverlight. If
one of these commonly-used plugins crashes or freezes, it won't affect
the rest of the browser. You can simply reload the page to restart the
plugin and try again.

Real World Performance

Having a super-fast JavaScript engine is definitely important, but
since those changes are often measured in milliseconds, sometimes what
matters even more is the way the browser feels when you’re actually
using it. That’s why we’re constantly optimizing Firefox to be great for
the way you use the Web — things like making new tabs open up more
quickly, or having the Awesome Bar provide results even faster. In the
end, it’s about getting you where you need to go as quickly and easily
as possible.

3D on the Web

WebGL brings 3D graphics to Firefox, opening the door for developers
to create vivid games and new kinds of visualizations and experiences on
the Web.

Advanced Security

Instant Web Site ID

Want to be extra sure about a site’s legitimacy before you make a
purchase? Click on its favicon for an instant identity overview. Another
click digs deeper: how many times have you visited? Are your passwords
saved? Check up on suspicious sites, avoid Web forgeries and make sure a
site is what it claims to be.

Instant Web Site ID screenshot

Content Security Policy

The Content Security Policy in Firefox is designed to shut down
cross-site scripting attacks by providing a mechanism for sites to
explicitly tell the browser which content is legitimate. The browser can
then disregard any content that has not been blessed by the site,
keeping you protected in the process.

Customized Security Settings

Control the level of scrutiny you’d like Firefox to give a site. You
can even enter exceptions—sites that don’t need the third degree.
Customize settings for passwords, cookies, loading images, and
installing add-ons for a fully empowered Web experience.

Parental Controls

Enforce parental control settings you’ve entered on Windows 7 to stop
unwanted downloads and more.

Secure Updates

Firefox looks for a secure connection before installing or updating
add-ons, third-party software, and

Private Browsing

Sometimes it’s nice to go undercover: turn this feature on and
protect your browsing history. You can slip in and out of private
browsing mode quickly, so it’s easy to go back to what you were doing
before as if nothing ever happened. This feature is great if you’re
doing your online banking on a shared computer or checking email from an
Internet café.

Private Browsing screenshot

Anti-Virus Integration

Firefox integrates elegantly with your Windows anti-virus software.
When you download a file, your computer’s anti-virus program
automatically checks it to protect you against viruses and other
malware, which could otherwise attack your computer.


Shop and do business safely on the Internet. Firefox gets a fresh
update of forgery sites a whopping 48 times a day, so if you try to
visit a fraudulent site that’s pretending to be someone you trust (like
your bank), a warning message will stop you before any harm is done.

Clear Recent History

Clear all your private data or just your activity over the past few
hours with a few quick clicks. You have full control over what to
delete, and then your info is gone for good—on your own computer or the
one at your local library. It’s that easy.


Firefox protects you from viruses, worms, trojan horses, and spyware
delivered over the Web. If you accidentally access an attack site, it
will warn you away from the site and tell you why it isn’t safe to use.

Do Not Track

Many sites track your online behavior and sell that data to
advertisers. If that makes you uncomfortable, Firefox lets you tell
sites you want to opt out of behavioral tracking and keep your browsing
habits private.

Forget This Site

Having second thoughts about having visited a certain site? Remove
every trace of ever having been there!

Securing Website Connections

Firefox keeps attackers from intercepting your sensitive data by
automatically establishing secure connections to websites that offer
secure https servers.

Automated Updates screenshot

Automated Updates

Firefox will automatically let you know when there’s a new version
available, so you can make sure your browser is always up-to-date with
the latest and greatest security fixes.

Learn more
about Firefox’s security features.

Outdated Plugin Detection

Plugins are small bits of third-party software built by companies
like Adobe Systems or Apple to power videos, animation and games. They
can be major security risks when they get out of date, so we’ve built an
easy tool to help you stay current.
Check your plugins.

Powerful Personalization

Add-ons Manager screenshot

Add-ons Manager

The Add-ons Manager has been redesigned to let you discover and install
add-ons without ever leaving Firefox. Browse ratings, recommendations,
descriptions and pictures of the add-ons in action to help you make your
selection. Your Add-ons Manager even lets you view, manage and disable
third-party plugins in a few easy clicks, checking and auto-updating any
of your installed add-ons every time you open the Manager pane.

Dress Up Your Firefox with Personas

Change the look of your Firefox to practically anything with
Personas: thousands of easy-to-install themes created by users from
around the world (or that you make yourself!). With a single click, you
can dress your browser up in simple designs, colorful patterns, and
content from partners like Harry Potter and Bob Marley.

Add-ons Manager screenshot

Customizable Interface

Everyone likes to browse their own way, so we’ve made it easy to
adjust the Firefox interface to be exactly the way you like it:
re-arrange, organize, add or remove buttons or fields to change your
browsing experience however you want. Just right click on the navigation
toolbar and select the Customize option to get started.

100,000s of Ways to Customize

The sky’s the limit with a growing library of thousands of
Firefox add-ons,
little extras you choose to download and install for a browser that
works your way. Manage online auctions, upload digital photos, see the
weather forecast in a glance and listen to music all from the
convenience of your browser. If you’re not sure where to begin,
visit our Rock Your Firefox site
for regular recommendations.

Beyond Add-ons

Add-ons are the cornerstone of customization, but adapting Firefox to
suit your style doesn’t stop there. You can add new search engines,
change toolbar preferences, display different sizes, shapes and styles
for your browser’s navigation buttons and more. With additional
preferences, you can specify a Web mail client (such as Gmail) to open
up when you click on an address from a Web page or set up a news reader
application for the blogs you encounter.

Universal Access

Fabulous Fonts

Firefox supports open font formats like WOFF, TrueType and OpenType,
meaning site designers are no longer limited to a select handful of
web-ready fonts as they create their sites. Because Firefox makes sure
to display and render type properly even if you don’t have the font
installed on your computer, you can view a wide variety of fonts while
you browse.

The Language of Firefox

Firefox speaks your language like no other browser on earth. Because
the Web is a public resource shared by everyone, we’ve made our browser
available in as many languages as possible. We have over 85 different
translations, from French and Chinese to Finnish and Czech.
Find your

Better Text Rendering

Read your language as it’s written—more like real life. Our graphics
engine renders Arabic, Persian, Punjabi and other script languages in a
remarkably seamless way.

Emphasis on Accessibility

By minimizing keystrokes, allowing users to zoom in on Web pages and
supporting screen readers, Firefox is that much easier to use for those
with mobility disabilities and visual impairments.

Universal Customization

Go beyond translation and experience the web in a way that makes
sense to you. Local developers who know what’s best for their community
have customized your Firefox browsing experience with local
dictionaries, search providers, live bookmarks and Web feeds. Depending
on where you live, you’ll see things like BBC headlines tailored to your
region or experience features that work with Baidu, the Chinese search
