Mozilla has launched the Firefox 12. The new Firefox is especially exciting for developers; it comes with some 85 improvements to built-in developer tools. For example, developers no longer need to reload the page to see messages in the Web Console, and Scratchpad adds Find and Jump to Line commands to the editor.
This time around, Firefox has simplified the update process for Windows users by removing the user account control dialog (UAC) pop-up. Once a user gives explicit permission to Firefox on their first installation, they will not be prompted again for subsequent releases. (“If you’ve installed software without meaning to, or if something is running without your consent, or if a trusted program has been modified, the UAC prompts shock you out of your normal flow,” explains senior director of Firefox Engineering, Jonathan Nightingale.)
