Mozilla announced that Firefox 84 (latest update in 2020) has native support for Macs controlled by M1.

Mozilla claims support for M1 processors has brought several significant performance improvements.

Based on SpeedoMeter 2.0 benchmark testing, it can be seen that the browser runs 2.5 times faster than before and the response speed of web applications is 2 times faster than the previous version of Firefox (Processor # M1).

Mozilla said, if you are running Firefox on your Mac and want to make sure it is running with the original version, then you need to update to the latest version of Firefox 84 and then quit Firefox and restart.

Firefox support follows Apple Chrome's arm architecture. Shortly after the release of MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini in November, Chrome added support for the new M1 processor.

Firefox 84 is the latest version that supports Adobe Flash Player and was updated last week.

In addition, you will need to install the Rosetta 2 software package, which will allow Macs with M1 processors to run applications that are not officially supported for backward compatibility. This is because you must stream content from DRM services like Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Disney Plus, or Netflix.

Firefox 84 also includes WebRender, Mozilla's fastest 2D GPU-based rendering engine now compatible with macOS Big Sur, Windows devices with 6th generation Intel GPUs, and laptops running Windows 7 and Windows 8

The new version also uses newer technology to allocate shared memory on Linux, which improves performance and compatibility with Docker.

According to reports, Mozilla has suffered from a slew of layoffs lately but continues to work hard to release new features for its browser.
