Mozilla, why don't you provide us with relevant information when prompting for an update?
I long for times back when the link was displayed
because they want to shove their user disempowerment features down our throats easier.
There is a solution, although not ideal, it is to use the link to the release note of the previous version, available in Help/About Firefox. For example :
can surely be adapted to the next update by replacing "98.0" by the new version number.
It will better if Mozilla provides releases notes in different languages.
It would be a big job with 92 localized versions (if I counted correctly). Already a remarkable number.
The solution if you don't understand everything is to use an online translator, like deepl.com for some languages.
Or if necessary translate.google.com, since you don't need to register.
Hey @look ,
Thanks for this feedback. What would be some of the relevant information you are looking for? We're happy to share this with the team.
This is great too. Thanks for the additional input!
I just wanted to ask to be able reading the release notes before updating. At the end it is a question of ux (updating blind vs. updating knowing). Maybe I am a webdev, maybe I'm just very curios about your work.
I agree with @look - I don't like putting code onto my machine without some idea of what it does. What information do we want? A link to the release note for the update that Mozilla wants us to install. The Mozilla site simply has a download button.
What I'm experiencing is, there's a link to the CURRENT version's release notes. Yes I can do surgery on the URL and get the release notes for the new version to be installed. 20 million people all doing surgery on the URL... why not one person make the link point to the right stuff. It's a task that gets done anyway, it's just one iteration behind
I've now found that this page https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/ has a link to the latest release notes at the bottom. Would have helped if it had been at the top, but one can't have everything.
