After the release of Firefox 70 Stable, Mozilla has already started the development of the next major release, and Firefox 71 is now in beta testing. While Firefox 71 isn’t very updated, it brings some interesting new features, such as the new kiosk mode, which opens a web browser directly in full screen without any interference elements. This applies to kiosks and can be enabled via the –kiosk command line parameters.
Another interesting feature introduced by Firefox 71 is picture-in-picture mode in Windows, which lets video elements on the page pop up into a floating window that can be sized and set to “Stay in front” state, in front of all desktop windows, and not obscured by other windows.
Most importantly, Firefox 71 promises to redesign: config internal configuration pages, more features and more detailed information through Certificate Viewer, and the introduction of new server-timing information in the web panel of the development tool. Service-related timingthats that allow web developers to analyze other request and response details.
Firefox 71 Stable is expected to go live on December 3and, and beta versions for GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows can now be downloaded through the FTP server.
