    Eagle-eyed Firefox users and administrators may have noticed that Mozilla dropped a new system add-on on systems running the stable version of Firefox recently.

    First spotted by Bleeping Computer creator Lawrence Abrams, the add-on's only purpose is to enable support for TLS 1.3, the next major Transport Layer Security protocol version.

    TLS 1.3 is considered to be faster and more secure than previous versions of the protocol. The new protocol version was finalized on March 21, 2018 and it needs to be supported by web browsers and Internet services.

    Firefox users who run beta or nightly versions of the web browser may know that TLS 1.3 is enabled in those versions already.

    Tip: you can manage TLS 1.3 manually in Firefox (and Chrome).
