122.0beta Firefox Beta

December 19, 2023

Version 122.0beta, first offered to Beta channel users on December 19, 2023

Firefox Beta gets updated 3 times a week and as a consequence, the release notes for the Beta channel are updated continuously to reflect features that have reached sufficient maturity to benefit from community feedback and bug reports.

Warning: Features listed here may or may not make a final release of Firefox.

In addition to these release notes, you can follow ongoing development via our @FirefoxBeta Twitter account.


  • Firefox now displays images and descriptions for search suggestions when provided by the search engine.

  • Firefox for Android now supports enabling Global Privacy Control. With this feature, Firefox informs the websites that the user doesn’t want their data to be shared or sold. This feature is enabled in private browsing mode by default and can be enabled in normal browsing in Settings → Enhanced Tracking Protection -> Tell websites not to share & sell data toggle.

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

  • Firefox now supports creating and using passkeys stored in the iCloud Keychain on macOS.

  • The line breaking rules of Web content now match the Unicode Standard. This improves Web Browser compatibility for line breaking.

    An additional improvement for East Asian and South East Asian end users, Firefox now supports proper language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text, for languages including Chinese, Japanese, Burmese, Lao, Khmer, and Thai.

  • The translations feature received an improvement to the quality of translated webpages. The results should be much more stable. This fixes issues where the content of a page could disappear when translated, or interactive widgets could break.

  • In Firefox for Android, to reduce user fingerprinting information and the risk of some website compatibility issues, the OS version is now always reported as "Android 10" in Firefox Android's User-Agent string.

Web Platform

  • Firefox now supports animating the SVG viewBox attribute using SMIL by animations. by animations are animations that are relative to the original value. Other attributes such as lengths and angles already support by, but a viewBox consists of four separate values.

  • The LargestContentfulPaint API has been added, this provides timing information about the largest image or text paint before users interact with a web page.

  • <hr>-in-<select> is now supported, allowing websites to easily use separators inside a <select> element.

  • The showPicker method is now supported on <select> elements, this can be used to trigger the drop-down behavior via JavaScript.

  • The fallback URL parser for unknown schemes was changed to DefaultURI this improves specification adherence and web compatibility.

  • Added support for ray() to the offset-path CSS property.

  • Enabled the offset-position property which is useful for most of the offset-path values.

  • Added support for basic-shape and coord-box for the offset-path CSS property.

  • Enabled the ArrayBuffer.prototype.transfer proposal methods, which enables transferring ownership of ArrayBuffer data.

  • Added support for rect() and xywh() basic shapes on clip-path and offset-path CSS properties.

  • Firefox now recognizes the "webauthn" autocomplete token and will suggest passkeys in form autofill dialogs.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Uneven Level Protection Forward Error Correction (ULPFEC) will now be on by default in Firefox. This provides another tool for WebRTC services to utilize, improving video quality for users with spotty internet connections.


  • 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.
