Exploring Firefox 125 Public Beta: URL Paste Suggestion and PDF Highlighting Features

With the release of Firefox 124, Mozilla has promoted the upcoming Firefox 125 release to the beta channel for public testing, which introduces us to the new features and improvements.

The most notable new feature of the upcoming Firefox 125 release is the URL Paste Suggestion feature. This feature offers a reliable method for users to access URLs that have been copied to the system clipboard quickly.

When the clipboard contains a URL and the URL bar is focused, an autocomplete result appears automatically. Activating the clipboard suggestion will navigate the user to the URL with 1 click, as explained by Mozilla in the release notes.

The new URL Paste Suggestion feature is now live for testing!

Firefox 125 also promises support for highlighting in PDF documents (will be released gradually), a new option that lets users enable Web Proxy Auto-Discovery (WPAD) while configuring Firefox to use the system proxy, and expanded download protection to proactively block downloads from URLs that may not be trustworthy.

For users of tab-specific Container add-ons, Firefox 125 promises to allow them to search in the address bar for tabs that are open in different containers. For users in the US and Canada, the upcoming Firefox release promises to prompt them to save their addresses when submitting an address form so they can more easily complete forms in the future.

Firefox 125 is set to provide an improved keyboard navigation experience in its settings. Users will now be able to reach the first option in a group of radio buttons where none are selected just by using the Tab key, rather than going through each option. Additionally, it will be easier to navigate between options with arrow keys when there is a selected option.

There are also changes in store for Android users of Firefox 125. Notably, the BCP47 variant and extension will no longer be included in the Accept-Language header of HTTP requests. This means enhanced interoperability with other web browsers will be enabled.

Web developers are also expected to benefit from the rollout of Firefox 125. Salient features include defaulted enablement of WebAssembly multi-memory for more efficient interactions between wasm modules and better polyfills for upcoming wasm standards such as the component model. There is also expected to be support for Unicode text segmentation to JavaScript, in addition to support for the content-box and stroke-box keywords of the transform-box CSS property.

Furthermore, it modifies the align-content attribute to function in a block layout, enabling block alignment without necessitating a flex or grid container. It also discards the SVGAElement.text method in favor of the more commonly implemented SVGAElement.textContent method and enhances support for the popover global attribute.

Expectedly, the long-anticipated Cookie Banner Blocker and Quick Actions in Address Bar features are reintroduced in the Firefox 125 beta, although their official release status is still unknown. Let’s hold thumbs!

Mozilla has set the release date of Firefox 125 for April 16th, 2024. Until then, you have the option to download and trial the current Firefox 125 beta build. You can find the tarball binary on the official website or the certified DEB package for Ubuntu or Debian systems from the Mozilla’s download server.
