◆Specify behavior related to scroll position snapping
Now supports scroll-snap-stop property and resnapping . The scroll-snap-stop property can be set to always or normal value, which allows you to specify whether to pass through the snap position during fast scrolling.
.mandatory-scroll-snapping > div {
/* Do not allow past snap points when the scroll container's visual viewport is fast scrolled */
scroll-snap-stop: always;
.proximity-scroll-snapping > div {
/* Allow the scroll container's visual viewport to pass through snap points when fast scrolled */
scroll-snap-stop: normal;

Also, resnapping tries to maintain the previous snap position as much as possible when the content or layout is changed.

◆ Added picture-in-picture subtitle service
Subtitles are now available for Picture-in-Picture on Disney+ .

◆Enhancement of PDF viewer function
You can now write text, draw, and sign on the PDF viewer.

◆ Analysis of site power consumption
You can now analyze website power usage with Firefox Profiler.

This feature is only available on Apple M1 and Windows 11.

◆ Reduced resource consumption when minimized or hidden
Minimizing or hiding the Firefox UI now reduces performance and battery consumption, similar to background tabs.

◆ Display correction of webmail UI
Highlighting is now retained correctly after pressing the Enter key in the Yahoo Mail and Outlook compose screens.

◆Fixes related to navigating through error pages
Back after bypassing an error page now takes you to the previously visited site instead of the error page.

Unformatted paste shortcuts (Shift+Ctrl/Cmd+V) are now available for plain text content like text inputs and textareas.
