'Waterworld' at 25: How Kevin Costner made one of the most expensive movies ever

  'Waterworld' at 25: How Kevin Costner made one of the most expensive movies ever Memo to all aspiring filmmakers: When Steven Spielberg tells you not to do something, you’d be wise to listen. Kevin Costner and Kevin Reynolds learned that lesson the hard way during the production of their 1995 action epic, Waterworld. Set in a dystopian tomorrow where the polar ice caps have melted, erasing “dryland” and bathing the world in water, the movie was conceived as an ambitious aquatic Western with a science-fiction twist. But when Waterworld washed ashore in cinemas 25 years ago this summer, all anyone could talk about was the out-of-control budget and behind-the-scenes creative battles that culminated with Costner replacing Reynolds in the editing room.

Support for AcroForm enables PDF forms to be filled out, saved and printed in the browser. The interface of the integrated PDF viewer has also been revised.

is also new that users can start and pause the playback of audio and video in the browser via the keyboard or a headset. The function is also available if the playback takes place via a tab in the background or even if another application is in use instead of Firefox.

Another innovation is initially reserved for users in the USA and Canada. Firefox 81 offers you the option to save and manage auto-fill data for credit card data in order to simplify the shopping experience with Firefox. Mozilla is gradually rolling out the function to its users.

In addition, Firefox now supports opening other types of files downloaded with the browser. From now on, XML, SVG and Webp files can also be opened directly in the browser without any additional application.

As with every update, the developers also used Firefox 81 to close security gaps. The current Security Advisory 2020-42 lists six vulnerabilities, three of which represent a high risk. Among other things, several memory errors have been fixed, which may allow the smuggling and execution of malicious code. The browser should also now be less prone to spoofing and cross-site scripting.

users who have already installed Firefox will receive the update automatically. However, it can also be started manually using the “About Firefox” item in the Help menu. Firefox 81 is also available on the Mozilla website .
