Firefox Mobile 1.1 – What’s Coming

Posted on 12:20 AM by SlipKoRnSaad

Mark Finkle from Mozilla Corporation on the Mozilla Mobile team developing Fennec stated the following :

The Mobile Team has been hard at work on the 1.1 release of Firefox Mobile. This release will mainly be a Nokia Maemo release, but the current Android builds are based on the same front-end.

For the 1.1 release, we are focusing on some UI features we didn’t have time to put in the initial release. We are also using your feedback to help improve the browsing experience. You can see the list of planned features on the planning page. As you can see, we have completed much of the work and the beta release is quickly approaching.

Some of the bigger features that have already landed include :

- Form assistant improvements, including autocomplete
- Start page redesign
- Auto update add-ons
- Portrait support on N900
- Context Menu with Open in New Tab and Save Image
- Web content theme update
- Manage site preferences (clearing passwords and others)
- Clean up site menu
- Use volume keys to zoom on N900
- Save page to PDF
