    Cool. Looking forward to that version! But Chrome still loads graphics websites slower for me today than Firefox...

    What is going to Happen

    https://dolske.wordpress.com/


    Time to get your groove on! It’s Photon Newsletter #16!
    But first. Do you remember the 21st night of September? As of today (September 21st) Firefox 57 has passed its penultimate milestone by entering Beta. This is a pretty big deal, as it means many millions of users on Beta will soon experience all the awesomeness that’s packed into 57. Note that Beta builds won’t actually go out until next week, on the 26th. But if you’re running Developer Edition, we’ve already pushed out an early sneak-peek!
    Did I mention that Developer Edition also got a snazzy new Firefox icon? It’s nice. And blue.

    The past week has been very busy as we’ve been doing a major burst of bug triage, just to make sure we’re not missing any already-reported critical issues. The front-end teams went through nearly 600 untriaged bugs in just a few days! The good news is that we didn’t find anything alarming, which matches up with our general impression that 57 is shaping up to be a really solid release.
    Recent Changes

    Menus/structure:

    • The Library panel now has a “Recent Highlights” section, which shows recent bookmarks and history. There’s also a new Downloads subview.
    • Re-landed the autohiding download button, this time with a pref to allow disabling the autohide behavior (currently shown when clicking on it in Customize Mode). We think the default behavior will work for most people – the Downloads button only appearing when there are Downloads in the current session, and the Downloads subview in the Library as the permanent location to access your list of downloads. But this pref allow you to keep the old Downloads button behavior. (This was backed out a few weeks ago, in part due to confusion from not yet having the Downloads subview


    The rest can be seen at the link.

    Downloaded the 57 Beta earlier today, quite impressed apart from the location of the flipping tabs as I was using Classic Theme restorer, was fully aware that has to go anyway, can't win em all. Everything else I'd already replaced with web extensions in advance, so apart from the tabs, life goes on as normal.
