Ο Firefox browser θα εμποδίζει σύντομα το injection αρχείων DLL από applications προστασίας από ιούς και άλλες εφαρμογές τρίτων.
Windows antivirus and other third-party applications such as tools PDF κ.ά., συνηθίζουν να προσθέτουν DLL στο πρόγραμμα tourς. Αυτό συμπεριφορά είναι γνωστό ότι προκαλεί προβλήματα σταθερότητας στους χρήστες του browser.
The Mozilla Foundation appears to be following the example of Google, which began blocking third party injection code in Google Chrome from 2018. Google found that Chrome installations containing third-party DLLs had 15% more problems than Chrome installations that did not contain third-party DLLs.
According to gHacks the Mozilla Foundation has begun to investigate the disabling of third-party DLLs in Firefox in the fourth quarter of 2016, but as the decisions have already been taken.
Firefox Beta will reach 66 on 29 January 2019, and Firefox Stable will release the 66 version on 19 2019 March.
If it is turned on and you want to disable the new feature (only available in Firefox Nightly), open the following internal address:
about: config? filter = browser.launcherProcess.enabled
Activating the feature may cause problems for third-party applications, which should update their applications up to the 66 version of Firefox to remove the DLLs they add to the browser.
