Mozilla's Plans For Firefox in 2012

Mozilla oultined the its plans and the next steps related to the development of the Firefox browser and the web platform in 2012.

To address the issue of people updating Firefox but having their desired add-ons stop working, from Firefox 10 add-ons Mozilla made Compatible by Default. This means that all add-ons that were marked compatible for Firefox 4 and higher will automatically be enabled in Firefox 10 and later.

In order to complement the popularity of the Firefox Sync feature, from Firefox 11 users are able to also sync add-ons.

To cater to update fatigue, updates will also be downloaded and installed silently in the background. It means that startup and shutdown of the web browser won’t be affected by installation routines. Additionally, the 'What’s New' page displayed after an update can now be displayed depending if there is important information needed to be displayed to the end user. Silent updates are currently planned to land in Firefox 13, Mozilla said.

Mozilla's Developer Tools in Firefox continue to evolve, with a number of features outlined in the Developer Tools roadmap

When it comes to the web platform, Mozilla has a number of new features in store:

More details on the web platform is available in the Web Platform roadmap.
