Firefox 12 comes just a month and a half after Firefox 11, bringing minor improvements in terms of functionality and stability.
The latest version of Firefox does not mention anything about resource consumption and performance improvement, criticized aspects by users that have weak PCs.
Firefox 12 boasts that since now can be updated without having to confirm the security dialog displayed by User Account Control (UAC). In fact, Mozilla plans to switch to a Firefox update mechanism automatically, as new versions of Web browser is installed without user as soon as they become available through the official channel.
The search has been improvements in the content page and download manager allows automatic download URLs added. The list also includes improvements and updated set of media controls for video playback HTML5 API.
Overall, Firefox 12 is a minor update to Mozilla Web browser, with limited improvements “under the hood”, but without a major impact on the functionality offered.
