    New
    • Say hello to a fresh new Firefox, designed to get you where you want to go even faster. We’ve redesigned and modernized the core experience to be cleaner, more inviting, and easier to use.
      Beginning in 89, you’ll notice a number of changes, including:
      Simplified browser chrome and toolbar: Less frequently used items removed to focus on the most important navigation items.

      Clear, streamlined menus: Re-organized and prioritized menu content according to usage. Updated labels and removed iconography.

      Updated prompts: Infobars, panels, and modals have a cleaner design and clearer language.

      Inspired tab design: Floating tabs neatly contain information and surface cues when you need them, like visual indicators for audio controls. The rounded design of the active tab supports focus and signals the ability to easily move the tab as needed.

      Fewer interruptions: Reduced number of alerts and messages, so you can browse with fewer distractions.
      Cohesive, calmer visuals: Lighter iconography, a refined color palette, and more consistent styling throughout.
      This release also includes enhancements to our privacy offerings:

    • For macOS users, we're introducing the elastic overscroll effect known from many other applications. A gentle bouncing animation will indicate that you reached the end of the page.
      In addition, we added support for smart zoom. Double-tap with two fingers on your trackpad, or with a single finger on your Magic Mouse, to zoom the content below your cursor into focus.
    • Native context menus: Context menus on macOS are now native and support Dark Mode.

    Fixed
    • Colors in Firefox on macOS will no longer be saturated on wide gamut displays, untagged images are properly treated as sRGB, and colors in images tagged as sRGB will now match CSS colors.
    • In full screen mode on macOS, moving your mouse to the top of the screen will no longer hide your tabs behind the system menu bar.
    • Also in full screen mode on macOS, it is now possible to hide the browser toolbars for a fully immersive full screen experience. This brings macOS in line with Windows and Linux.
    • Various stability and security fixes.

    Changed
    • Introducing a non-native implementation of web form controls, which delivers a new modern design and some improvements to page load performance. Watch for layout bugs in web pages that make assumptions about the dimensions or styling of form controls.
    • The screenshots feature is available in the right-click context menu. You can also add a screenshots shortcut to your toolbar. Learn more.

    Didn't work, Edwin.

    It came up automatically in dark mode on my desktop, but changing it didn't make it work on Lappy.

    I have been using the standard released version of Firefox....I was looking at the beta version...Any real advantages (or disadvantages) to using it over the standard, released version? Is it stable enough to use as a main browser? Lastly, can you run both released firefox and beta as two separate browsers or do you have to replace one with the other?

    By default the beta version of Firefox will overwrite your existing release version, however if you create a custom directory named Firefox Beta (or any name of your choice) and install to there it should leave your existing release version alone.
    I've used nothing but beta releases for the last five years and apart from the odd minor bug have not had any problems running it as my main browser.
    As for advantages, you get to see any new features early. Disadvantages you can encounter the occasional bug.
    Have a read of this article Using Release, ESR, Beta, Aurora, and/or Nightly together. • mozillaZine Forums

    Thanks Doogie....very clear explanation...I think i may give it a go then as i kind of like the idea of being a "step ahead" as it were...LOL
    What i will do is uninstall my current Firefox and then install the beta...run with it for a period of time and if it seems to be ok for main browser use on my computer, keep it...otherwise, i can always go back to the current version again...

    Or do you think it would be better to let the beta overwrite the one i have now? I would imagine it probably doesn't make too much difference?

    If you let beta overwrite regular one it will keep all settings, bookmarks and add-ons.

    That would be the better way to go...If i should eventually decide to return to the regular released version, would that overwrite the beta in the same manner?
