  • 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 1874702
  • Firefox on Mac now uses the macOS fullscreen API for all types of fullscreen windows. This should better match the expected macOS user experience for fullscreen spaces, menubar and the Dock. Users who would like to return to the previous behavior should set the deprecated full-screen-api.macos-native-full-screen pref to false.

    Bug 1862223
