Shortly after pushing the Firefox 90 update to users, Mozilla has released Firefox 91 Beta on the Play Store. The latest version of the browser introduces quite a few changes that make it more efficient.
To start with, the Firefox browser is gaining a new “Jump back in” section on the new tab page. It lets you quickly return to the tab you opened most recently. The browser will pick up where you left off. A “Show all” button will open the tab switcher overview should you want to go to some other active tap and not the one you opened most recently. Of course, the dedicated tab switcher button on the bottom bar is still there.
Firefox 91 Beta also adds a new “Start on home” section to the tab settings. It comes with three options – after four hours, always, and never. As you might expect, these settings let you choose whether or not to start up on the new tab page when you open the browser.
By default, the “after four hours” option is selected. So if you haven’t opened the Firefox browser in the past four hours, it will start up on the new tab page when you open it next time. However, you can disable this altogether, so you return to the last opened page straight up.
You can also have Firefox open the new tab page every time you launch it. Note that this option works only when you restart the browser. Tapping on your device’s home button and then returning to Firefox will not trigger it. You will return to the last opened page. But if you restart the app, it will open the new tab page, though your last active tabs will still be accessible from the tab switcher.
Firefox 91 Beta is now available to download on the Play Store
Mozilla rolled out Firefox 90 in the stable channel last week. The rollout hasn’t likely reached every user around the world. However, the company already has the next version of its browser available in the beta channel.
The upcoming release doesn’t pack too many novelties. But if you can’t wait to try out the handful of the new features and changes coming to the Firebox browser, you can now download Firefox 91 Beta from the Google Play Store (link below). In case the latest beta version hasn’t rolled out for you yet, you can also sideload the app from APK Mirror (via).
