Waterfox’s custom look and feel now applies to all themes by default. You can disable or modify this by going to the Preferences page → Look & Feel.

✔ Fixed

  • Issue playing Netflix and similar DRM protected websites have now resolved. If it’s not working straight away, you can update the DRM plugin by going to the Preferences page → General → Files and Applications and un-check “Play DRM-controlled content”. Wait for a few seconds, then re-check the box. The DRM plugin should update.
  • Drag space is now disabled by default (that extra space above your tabs, so you can drag the window around).
  • The status bar colour now matches the navigation bar.

ℹ️ Changed

  • Various security fixes 1.
