New

  • Starting with Firefox 127, we're enabling a new anti-tracking feature in Nightly: Bounce Tracking Protection. This protection detects bounce trackers based on redirect behavior and periodically purges their cookies & site data to prevent tracking.

  • Starting with Firefox for Android 128, the new tab strip feature for tablets is available for testing in Nightly builds!

    Bug 1834876
