And just a few years ago, they were at version 3.0…

New:
– Security fixes.

– Per-window Private Browsing.

– New download experience.

– Continued performance improvements around common browser tasks (page loads, downloads, shutdown, etc.).

– Continued implementation of draft ECMAScript 6 – clear() and Math.imul.

– New JavaScript Profiler tool.

– getUserMedia implemented for web access to the user’s camera and microphone (with user permission).

Various:
– Details button on Crash Reporter.

– Unity plugin doesn’t display in HiDPI mode.

Known Issues:
– If you try to start Firefox using a locked profile, it will crash.

– Some function keys may not work when pressed.

– Browsing and Download history clearing needs unification to avoid confusion on clearing download history.

– Download statusbar add-on continues downloading files from Normal.

– Browsing, when switching to Private Browsing.

– Copy actions are broken on HTML5 videos.

Firefox 20.0 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later to install and run.
