Firefox 96: Cookie policy is to protect against cross-website requests

With the attribute set by default Same-Site=lax Mozilla wants to prevent the information released by users from being passed on without prior consent – such attacks by forging requests are called “Cross-Site-Request-Forgery (CSRF)”. Relief of the main thread, in which JavaScript functions and the layout are loaded, should reduce loading times.

Firefox also fixes a few bugs as usual: WebRTC, the standard for real-time video communication, sometimes led to a reduced resolution when sharing screens. Additionally, a bug has been fixed where videos would occasionally be separated from the SSRC identifier. With macOS, videos opened in a separate window in full-screen mode were temporarily deactivated because of incorrect playback, missing subtitles and high processor load.

To increase the audio quality when surfing, the Firefox update should improve noise and echo suppression and bring an automatic gain control (AVR) to avoid overdriving.

Links in Google mails can be opened in macOS since Firefox version 96 via the command key and a click in a new tab.
