Mozilla has announced the release of Firefox 106 bringing the several new features including the ability to edit PDFs, redesigned private windows, a new 'Firefox View', and more.

Earlier this year we celebrated our 100th Firefox release and reaffirmed our commitment to put people first. For today’s release, we’re rolling out new features that deliver on our user promise to provide web experiences that prioritizes people’s privacy and needs whenever they go online.

Here's a look at the new features...

What's New in Firefox 1605
● It is now possible to edit PDFs: including writing text, drawing, and adding signatures.

● Setting Firefox as your default browser now also makes it the default PDF application on Windows systems.

● You can now pin private windows to your Windows taskbar on Window 10 and Windows 11 for simpler access. Also, private windows have been redesigned to increase the feeling of privacy.

● Swipe-to-navigate (two fingers on a touchpad swiped left or right to perform history back or forward) now works for Linux users on Wayland.

● Text Recognition in images allows users on macOS 10.15 and higher to extract text from the selected image (such as a meme or screenshot).

● Extracted text is copied to the clipboard in order to share, store, or search—without needing to manually retype everything. This feature is compatible with “VoiceOver,” the built-in macOS
screen reader.

● “Firefox View” helps you get back to content you previously discovered. A pinned tab allows you to find and open recently closed tabs on your current device, access tabs from other devices (via our “Tab Pickup” feature), and change the look of the browser (with Colorways).

● With the launch of the “Independent Voices” collection, Firefox is introducing 18 new “Colorways.” You can now access a “Colorways” modal experience via “Firefox View”; each new color is accompanied with a bespoke graphic and a text description that speaks to its deeper meaning. The collection will be available through Jan 16.
