New

  • Improved PDF reading in high contrast mode

  • On Linux, Firefox will use Geoclue if available on the system for geolocation.

  • Subtitles and captions for Picture-in-Picture are now available at HBO Max, Funimation, Dailymotion, Tubi, Disney+ Hotstar, and SonyLIV.

Changed

  • There is now an enterprise policy (StartDownloadsInTempDirectory) and an about:config pref (browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir) that will once again cause Firefox to initially put downloads in (a subfolder of) the OS temp folder, instead of the download folder configured in Firefox. Files opened from the "what should Firefox do with this file" dialog, or set to open in helper applications automatically, will stay in this folder. Files saved (not opened as previously mentioned) will still end up in the Firefox download folder.

Developer

Web Platform

  • We now support the Content-Security-Policy (CSP) directive 'wasm-unsafe-eval'. This means existing web pages that have strict CSP might now block WebAssembly from executing.

  • TransformStreams has landed, allowing you to pipe from a ReadableStream to a WritableStream, executing a transformation on chunks
