Firefox 3.6 Final Version Released – Personas Introduced

Mozilla has launched its latest version for the Firefox. Firefox 3.6 is without a doubt the fastest release ever. Built on Mozilla’s Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which contains added improvements for web developers, add-on developers and users. Main purpose of this version is to run smoothly on small device operating systems.


The main feature in this new release is called “Personas” which are also known as light weight themes. Unlike other themes Personas only changes the status & Toolbar backgrounds without the need to restart the browser, which makes it easier to preview personas in Mozilla add-ons.


Personas have been downloaded 10 million times before they were added as a default feature in Firefox add-ons. More than 30,000 personas are available for download. Options to load your own persona by selection few files from your computer, and browse personas in add-ons definitely can attract visitors.

Another minor but important change is that Firefox doesn’t create a new window if non-content windows like download manager or Add-on manager are open, it would rather restore the last closed window.

Other Key Features of release 3.6

  • Protection from out dated plug-ins for safe browsing is another key feature.
