With the upcoming release of Firefox 55, Mozilla can now focus on developing and improving the next version of its cross-platform web browser, Firefox 66, which is expected to arrive in mid-March.
Just like in all Firefox releases, Mozilla will try to improve the stability and performance of its popular browser, implementing new features and options. This is the case with Firefox 66, which is now in development with many major changes on its way.
For Linux users, the good news is that Firefox 66 will arrive with the hidden title bar, this in order to better integrate with the rules of the GNOME desktop environment, which is used in many popular distributions, including Ubuntu.
Scrolling and performance improvements
Firefox 66 will improve scrolling behavior by adding an anchor, which prevents web content from jumping around while the page is loading, adding the ability to search between open tabs from the tab menu, block playback multimedia content with default audio, and a general improvement in browser performance.
Other notable changes include the improved I / O performance, the ability to overwrite or manage extensions keyboard commands from the about: addons page, a new about: privatebrowsing page with search, and new notifications to inform users of a page certification error, breaking the HTTPS connections.
