The next version of Firefox 60 which is part of the Quantum series will be bringing more privacy features which automatically turns off the computer’s webcam when you face mute on sites. The Firefox browser automatically turns off your camera light so that the user’s face is not recorded by the other site.

Firefox is also expected to support Web Authentication by letting users to use a USB token for authentication to the favourite websites. IT admins will also be getting more control in the latest update with the company letting them customise Firefox deployments by introducing new policy engine.
