Mozilla has released version 36 of open-source desktop browser Firefox. The update’s biggest change is support for the newly-released HTTP/2 standard.

Other new features include syncing for pinned tiles on new tab pages and the addition of localization for the Uzbek language. The new version of the browser will no longer accept certificates signed with 1024-bit RSA keys.

For developers, additions include Eval sources now appearing in Firefox’s Debugger and more paste options in Inspector’s markup view. There are also fixes for a range of security issues and a particular bug that saw unexpected logouts from Google and Facebook.

The previous release, Firefox 35, added cross-browser video chat with Firefox Hello.
