I am still using 61.0 because that is when the comments section in the bookmarks was removed. Does anybody know if it has been added back in yet? As much as I would love to upgrade, I find myself using Chrome a lot more, so I can keep my comments section in Firefox.

Some nice additions/improvements for FF 69: For our users on macOS, battery life and download UI are both improved: macOS users on dual-graphics-card machines (like MacBook Pro) will switch back to the low-power GPU more aggressively, saving battery life. Finder on macOS now displays download progress for files being downloaded. Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) rolls out stronger privacy protections: The default standard setting for this feature now blocks third-party tracking cookies and cryptominers. The optional strict setting blocks fingerprinters as well as the items blocked in the standard setting. The Block Autoplay feature is enhanced to give users the option to block any video that automatically starts playing, not just those that automatically play with sound. For our users in the US or using the en-US browser, we are shipping a new “New Tab” page experience that connects you to the best of Pocket’s content. Support for receiving multiple video codecs with this release makes it easier for WebRTC conferencing services to mix video from different clients.

Thank you for letting us know about this! We have now updated this page to show the most recent release notes. Unfortunately, those were not available when we originally updated our listing to 69.0. Thanks again, your help is very much appreciated!

It is still a good browser, trying to adapt to new times. I don't know about the Windows version, but the Mac version is still slow. Consumes a lot of resources (especially when playing video). Rather, it is no longer an interesting alternative to Chrome or Safari, even though Firefox is still trying to modernize. The only plus may be that it does not belong to Apple or Google - for many people it matters.

Utter rubbish, badbadger. If FF is not running faster than Safari or Chrome on your Mac, you have something wrong on your machine. FF is customizable with many, many more extensions than Chrome, let alone Safari.

68.0.1 completely eats your CPU. Almost 400%. This is ridiculous.

The same with 68.0.2 just released. To tell the truth, Firefox has always been a memory hog. It's only getting worse.

Today, MacUpdate offers for download Firefox 69.0. Strangely enough, at https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ the download is still Firefox 68.0.2, How come? Can I trust the 69.0 version when the developer still doesn't offer it?

I noticed today that Mozilla now offers a 69.0 version. It's slightly larger than the version MacUpdate offered two days ago.

My favourite browser! Only thing I don't like is that it doesn't work like other mac apps. Like when I option-click on its icon in the dock, I want it to hide all other apps, not show me an option screen...

Chrome and Firefox let users data leak thru their extensions. https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2019/07/dataspii-inside-the-debacle-that-dished-private-data-from-apple-tesla-blue-origin-and-4m-people/? This is one more reason to stop using both browsers.

Safari is number one. No complaints.
Brave is fine, but don't really use it. Years ago liked to use Opera, but it was before I switched over to Mac back in 2008. I'm curious about Microsoft new browser. More and more reports how Windows is on par with Mac. A lot of sites with detailed comparisons. Looks like new Windows is going to make many Mac users move to Windows.

This update is total crap: it doesn't work at all, had to go back to previous version... whoever developed this rubbish should be sacked... may have to abandon Firefox for good. Really browned off with Mozilla!

Surely you already filed a bug with exact version infos and steps to reproduce and debug data so that Mozilla can fix the problems you are seeing?

Could you link your bug?
