FAST. PRIVATE. SAFE.
Firefox browser gives you effortless privacy protection with lightning-fast page loads. Enhanced Tracking Protection automatically blocks over 2,000 known online trackers from invading your privacy and slowing down your webpages. Firefox browser also introduces a clean new design that makes it easier to get more things done, more quickly. Plus, with smart browsing features built in, Firefox lets you take your privacy, passwords, and bookmarks with you safely wherever you go.
YOU COME FIRST
As the internet grows and changes, Firefox continues to focus on your right to privacy — we call it the Personal Data Promise: Take less. Keep it safe. No secrets. Your data, your web activity, your life online is protected with Firefox.
HOW FIREFOX COMPARES TO OTHER BROWSERS
When it comes to all-around performance — speed, design, utility, ease of use, and a steadfast commitment to your privacy — no browser beats Firefox. And being backed by a non-profit means that unlike other browsers, we have no financial stake in following you around the web.
PICK UP RIGHT WHERE YOU LEFT OFF
Start using Firefox on your phone then switch to the Firefox browser on your computer. With Firefox across your devices you can take your bookmarks, saved logins and browsing history wherever you go. Firefox browser also takes the guesswork out of passwords by remembering your passwords across devices.
KEEP FACEBOOK OFF YOUR BACK
Built for Firefox, the Facebook Container extension helps to stop Facebook from collecting your personal data and web activity when you’re outside of Facebook — yes, they’re actually doing this.
YOUR SAVE BUTTON FOR THE INTERNET
Hit the Pocket button when you come across an interesting article, video, recipe — you know, the good stuff on the internet — but just don’t have the time. Pocket stashes it in your own private, distraction-free space to dive into later.
MULTITASKING MADE EASY
Play a video in a separate, scalable window that pins to the front of your desktop with the Picture-in-Picture feature. It stays and plays while you go about your other business on other tabs or do things outside of Firefox.
EXTENSIONS FOR EVERY INTEREST
From security to news to gaming, there’s an extension for everyone. Add as many as you want until your browser is just right.
CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO SINCE 1998
Firefox was created by Mozilla as a faster, more private alternative to browsers like Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome. Our mission-driven company and volunteer community continue to put your privacy above all else.
