New Updates and Features in the Newly Released Mozilla Firefox 124

Mozilla Firefox 124, a cross-platform and open-source web browser, is currently accessible for download ahead of its official publicity on the 19th of March, 2024. Now it’s time to delve into the updated features and enhancements.

In terms of its updates, Mozilla Firefox 124 appears to be a modest one that primarily refines the Caret Browsing mode to function in the PDF viewer as well as accommodating the Screen Wake Lock API to inhibit devices from screen dimming or locking when an application is required to persist in operation.

Moreover, the release offers support for the utilization of HTTP(S) and relative URLs during the formation of WebSockets, along with support for the AbortSignal: any() static technique. This consideration consumes an iterable of abort indications and returns an AbortSignal. For detailed information, visit the following link.

For those using Android, Firefox 124 bolsters the Pull to Refresh function, which is now sturdier than ever. By default, it integrates support for the HTML drag and drop API when a mouse is in use. This operation accepts plain text or HTML text through the drop operation from external apps.

For macOS users, this release uses the fullscreen API for all types of full-screen windows, promising a better match to the expected macOS user experience for full-screen spaces, the Menubar, and the Dock. If you want to disable this feature, you’ll need to set the full-screen-api.macos-native-full-screen preference to false in about:config.

During public beta testing, Firefox 124 also offered the long-awaited Cookie Banner Blocker feature that instructs Firefox to automatically refuse cookie banners for you and the Quick Actions feature that lets you quickly perform various actions from the address bar. However, these features were available up until the sixth beta version and they aren’t present in the final release.

As mentioned before, Mozilla will officially announce the Firefox 124 release tomorrow, March 19th, 2024. Until then, you can download the official DEB package for Ubuntu/Debian distros or the tarball binary for Linux, as well as binaries for macOS and Windows systems from Mozilla’s download server.
