Mozilla Firefox is a free, open-source and cross-platform web browser
for Windows, Linux, MacOS X and many other operating systems.

It is fast and easy to use, and offers many advantages over other web
browsers, such as tabbed browsing and the ability to block pop-up

Firefox also offers excellent bookmark and history management, and it
can be extended by developers using industry standards such as XML,
CSS, JavaScript, C++, etc. Many extensions are available.

    Firefox now prevents websites from automatically playing sound. You can add \ 
individual sites to an exceptions list or turn blocking off. To learn more about \ 
block autoplay, which will be rolled out gradually to all users, visit the \ 
Mozilla blog.

    Improved search experience:
        Find a specific webpage faster when you have a lot of tabs open: You can \ 
now search within all of your open tabs from the tab overflow menu
        Easier search via a redesigned new tab in Private Windows

    Smoother scrolling: Scroll anchoring keeps content from jumping as images \ 
and ads load at the top of the page

    Improved performance and better user experience for extensions:
        Extensions now store their settings in a Firefox database, rather than \ 
individual JSON files, making every site you visit faster
        A redesigned keyboard shortcuts section in about:addons makes it easier \ 
to view and adjust default shortcuts

    Redesigned certificate error pages help you better understand and resolve \ 
issues, including identification of certificate issuers for anti-virus software

    Added basic support for macOS Touch Bar

    Experimenting with an improved Pocket experience in New Tab with different \ 
layouts and more topical content

    Improved performance and reduced crash rates by [doubling web content \ 
loading processes from 4 to 8 [1]

    Easier, passwordless security: Added support for Windows Hello on Windows \ 
10, allowing you to use your face, fingerprint, or external security keys for \ 
website authentication

    The Dark and Light Firefox themes now override the system setting for title \ 
bar accent color on Windows 10

    Linux users: Resolved an issue that caused Firefox to freeze when \ 
downloading files

    Various security fixes


    System title bar is hidden by default to match Gnome guideline for Linux users


    DevTools Inspector is now fully usable when the Debugger is paused
