Firefox 8 adds a handful of features to the Web browser. The most notable change is how Firefox handles add-ons installed by third party applications. These add-ons are disabled by default, thus increasing security against actions like new malicious toolbars or potential spyware. Once the new version of Firefox is installed, the browser prompts the user about all previously installed add-ons from third parties to make a decision about keeping each one.


In addition, Mozilla has added Twitter to the list of search engines available for the search bar. This is ideal for users that want to get the latest real-time chatter about significant events in the news.
