New

  • Firefox for Android can now be set as the default PDF reader.

  • Starting with Firefox 122, the URL Paste Suggestion feature is now enabled by default in Nightly builds. This enhancement provides a convenient way for users to quickly visit URLs copied to the clipboard in the address bar of desktop Firefox. When the clipboard contains a URL, and the user focuses on the URL bar, an autocomplete result appears automatically. Activating the clipboard suggestion will navigate the user to the URL with 1 click.

    Bug 1860548
  • Starting with Firefox 122, scroll animations triggered using a mouse wheel or using the keyboard (e.g. arrow keys, Page Down/Up) are now based on a Mass-Spring-Damper physics model in Nightly builds, this gives animations a more realistic feel.

    Bug 1866266

    Bug 1830909

    Bug 1598159

    Bug 1864541
  • Scripts can now store cacheAPI data in Private Browsing mode. Previously, user experience for someone browsing in private browsing mode could be significantly different than in regular mode. With these changes, websites can store cacheAPI data in Private Mode moving towards a uniform experience in regular vs Private Browsing mode.

    Bug 1864684
  • To further protect user privacy Firefox now taints filters that use currentColor as an input. Since color can be set by the :visited pseudo selector, it potentially contains privacy-sensitive information and therefore these primitives must be marked as tainted. This means that if you use such a filter you won't be able to read the filter output from canvas.

    Bug 1869202

Unresolved

  • Some machines with older AMD CPUs may see image thumbnails incorrectly render as all black in file dialogs. If this is the case, updating the graphics driver should address this issue.
