How to Turn On or Off UI Animations in Firefox Quantum

information   Information
Starting with Firefox Quantum (version 57), there is a new user interface (UI) called Photon.

The Photon UI includes a number of animations enabled by default in Firefox Quantum. If you don't care for these new animations, you can turn them off.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off UI animations in Firefox Quantum for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.


Here's How:

1. Open Firefox.

2. Type about:config into the address bar, press Enter, and click/tap on the I accept the risk button. (see screenshot below)
