Fixed

Changed

  • The OS compositor has been enabled for macOS when WebRender is enabled

    Bug 1592016
  • On Windows, Ctrl+I can now be used to open the Page Info window instead of opening the Bookmarks sidebar. Ctrl+B still opens the Bookmarks sidebar.

  • DNS over HTTPS (with Cloudflare as the DNS resolver) will be rolled out for users, turning the option on by default for users in the United States. For an alternate DNS service, users can select NextDNS via the Network Settings dialog in Preferences.

Developer
