Firefox 23 expands its social functionality by integrating a share button into the Firefox toolbar.

The new share button lets users post an interesting article to friends and family via profile, private message, or e-mail without having to leave the page. This is already complemented by a slew of recent feature add-ons in Firefox that include the ability to view your feeds, check status updates and activity, and chat with friends directly within the sidebar.

Developers are also given a few new toys to play with, notably the Network Monitor. The Network Monitor, a convenient, historical view of network activity on your site, has received a significant face lift since its original Web Console days.

Mozilla has also enabled Mixed Content blocking by default, which prevents MITM (man-in-the-middle) attacks on secure HTTP pages by giving users more control over whether to allow protection or override the protection. As you browse, users will notice a shield icon that indicates that Mixed Content protection is enabled.

As always, head on over to the Download button to upgrade your Firefox client.

What's new in version 85.0.2

Firefox now protects you from supercookies, a type of tracker that can stay hidden in your browser and track you online, even after you clear cookies. By isolating supercookies, Firefox prevents them from tracking your web browsing from one site to the next.
It’s easier than ever to save and access your bookmarks. Firefox now remembers your preferred location for saved bookmarks, displays the bookmarks toolbar by default on new tabs, and gives you easy access to all of your bookmarks via a toolbar folder.
The password manager now allows you to remove all of your saved logins with one click, as opposed to having to delete each login individually.
Firefox no longer supports Adobe Flash. There is no setting available to re-enable Flash support.
