Blocking Top-Level Navigations to data URLs for Firefox 58
> End users rely on the address bar of a web browser to identify what web page they are on. However, most end users are not aware of the concept of a data URL which can contain a legitimate address string making the end user believe they are browsing a particular web page. In reality, attacker provided data URLs can show disguised content tricking end users into providing their credentials. The fact that the majority of end users are not aware that data URLs can encode untrusted content makes them popular amongst scammers for spoofing and particularly for phishing attacks.
Verified cryptography for Firefox 57
> This is a very exciting development and Mozilla has partnered with INRIA and Project Everest (Microsoft Research, CMU, INRIA) to bring components from their formally verified HACL* cryptographic library into NSS, the security engine which powers Firefox.
NoScript’s Migration to WebExtensions APIs
> The so-called “legacy” add-on technology which NoScript has been built with is going to be banned very soon; therefore, like too often in real life, it’s either migrate or die.
Update on Multi-Process Firefox
> Beyond Firefox 50, we have more work to do to enable multi-process Firefox for users with as yet unsupported extensions. In Firefox 51, if all testing goes according to plan, we’ll be enabling multi-process Firefox for users with extensions that are not explicitly marked as incompatible with multi-process Firefox.
