Mozilla Firefox gains native Windows 10 sharing in latest update

Mozilla’s Firefox browser updated to Version 64.0 today and added some nice improvements that regular users may appreciate.

After installing the latest update, users will now be able to move multiple tabs at once, detect which tabs are using the most energy, and remove add-ons from their context menus. The biggest change for Windows 10 users, however, is the added support for native sharing.

Now, when users click on the ellipsis in the address bar and select Share, the Windows 10 share box will appear as it does in many other apps.

Here’s the full release notes for Firefox Version 64.0:

  • Better recommendations: You may see suggestions in regular browsing mode for new and relevant Firefox features, services, and extensions based on how you use the web (for US users only)
  • Enhanced tab management: You can now select multiple tabs from the tab bar and close, move, bookmark, or pin them quickly and easily
  • Easier performance management: The new Task Manager page found at about:performance lets you see how much energy each open tab consumes and provides access to close tabs to conserve power
  • Improved performance for Mac and Linux users, by enabling link time optimization (Clang LTO). (Clang LTO was enabled for Windows users in Firefox 63.)
  • More seamless sharing on Windows: Windows users can now share web pages using the native sharing experience. You can access Share in the Page Actions menu
  • Added option to remove add-ons using the context menu on their toolbar buttons
  • New for enterprise users: Updated the policy engine on macOS to allow using configuration profiles to customize Firefox for enterprise deployments
