   The new Firefox is up for grabs right now

Mozilla has recently released another update for Firefox browser on all supported desktop operating systems.

Now at version 64.0.2, Mozilla Firefox continues to be one of the most popular browsers out there, and according to NetMarketShare data, it’s the second most-used application in this particular software category after Google Chrome.

As a result, Mozilla is very committed to keeping Firefox always up-to-date, and the company releases frequent updates to resolve bugs and improve general performance.

Version 64.0.2 does just that, as it’s an update to the original Firefox 64 release that was published in December.

What’s new in this update?

First and foremost, this new Firefox version comes to resolve a bug causing video stuttering on YouTube. The issue is detailed in a bug report on Bugzilla, and a fix was previously part of Nightly builds of the browser rolled last month as well. By the looks of things, this problem exists on all desktop operating systems, including Windows and Linux, as reported by users in the linked discussion.

Additionally, this Firefox update comes to resolve a browser crash on macOS, while also updating the Japanese translation for missing strings. It resolves glitches affecting column sizes in developer tools inspector, and brings refinements for some lightweight themes.

Needless to say, there are no new features in this Firefox version because it’s not a major release, so it’s only supposed to resolve the bugs that were reported since the previous update was published.

You are obviously recommended to download Firefox 64.0.2 as soon as possible, especially if you previously experienced any of the bugs mentioned above.

The same version is available for download on Android as well, only that this time there are just two different bug fixes. The first resolves a crash experienced when the browser was running in the background, while the other resolves a glitch forcing the app to close when using Web Speech.
