Meet the browser: Firefox Next

I'm guessing A couple work arounds would be to either, 1, drag out the add-on manager into its own window, then open up the styles thing, or 2, open up the manage styles window from the toolbar button.

Yeah #1 works - didn't think of that :blush:, but #2 was what annoyed me by the change. With the new version of Stylish, clicking on Manage Styles from the toolbar button just takes you to the Add-on Manager and puts you on the User Styles tab.

Thanks, though! I've since changed it back to the old behavior by changing an about:config setting, so it's not a big deal.

... I've since changed it back to the old behavior by changing an about:config setting, so it's not a big deal.

The instructions are here:

1. Type about:config in the URL bar.

2. Click "I'll be careful, I promise!" or whatever it says to continue.

3. In the Filter form at the top, put extensions.stylish.manageView

4. There should only be one entry showing, right click the item > Modify . Change value depending on the behavior you want. 0 for add-ons manager, 1 for stand-alone dialog, 2 for sidebar

I get this immediate shadow sometimes , and it looks really sharp and crisp with that on , but its some glitch i guess .. Anyone else?

PS : Can't we have the glitched version as default? Any userstyle to increase shadow density?

Edit : Okay i investigated the problem and occurs ONLY WITH TWITTER (NEW) till NOW. Please confirm

Looks good, but not an option that I would be using. Might be useful for others.

Pretty good, although I think the vertical ui is ugly XD

but there's not enough contrast IMO

Looks like Safari might implement the mock download manager first

Yep, the Safari guys beat Mozilla to the punch, there was a post about it on the Mozilla blog (happy one, I think the designer is happy somebody implemented it and showed the design works)

Latest release of nightly also feature url highlighting but not very prominent. Niice mockup, Mozilla should ditch rapid release (major version bumps) since they didn`t get warm response on Aurora builds.

^There's a reason to why they're making Aurora builds. It has the same reason as the Chrome Dev-builds has. Testing new things out and adding changes to the browser for testing purposes so that they can push out major builds quicker, instead of 1 major build each year or so. All this so that they don't break the browser with useless features.

So yeah, they really don't need a warm response for test builds. As long as they're getting warm responses to the major stable builds, then there's no loss.

I'd still like to see it implemented into Firefox tbh. And does anyone know when the new theme will land? I'd try to mod the current theme into that but I have no idea how to edit the CSS the way it needs to be done.

I agree with your point. Nice build quality Mozilla have. Chrome builds are more risky (once I lost my some bookmarks) while I like Mozilla. I changed PC and also switched browsers. Used Chrome till 10..

Just switched back to Chrome from running 4.0 from release day. Sorry Mozilla but Chrome opens and loads pages quicker that Firefox.

Support for CSS3 Hyphenation just landed, next nightly should support it for text marked as en-us (First proper OpenType shaping, now auto-hyphenation. Text support is getting good.)

It's still being worked on, planned for 6 or 7 (probably make 7 at this point). As for theme adjustments, I haven't seen any bugs, but work is landing in bits and pieces.

I've never had any issues with the Chrome Dev-builds. Though 2 weeks ago I've switch from Chrome to Firefox 4 and a few days later to Firefox 5.0a Aurora. The only thing that annoys me are several graphical imperfections. As a graphical designer I easily see those smaller imperfections, as a perfectionist even more so :p If I was able to customize the theme easily, I'd have changed them. But I'll just wait for the theme from the latest mockup to land.

@The_Decryptor: There are no bugs no, but the current theme doesn't look as good as the one from the mockup. As I said above, I'm annoying myself to things like the rounded corners of the buttons. They're not really good looking and when you look closely, they're not even that rounded but more like straight. Also, the hover effects aren't that nice IMO. But, that's just me and my personal taste for a UI.

Also, the reason why I switched from Chrome to Firefox is because Firefox feels a lot more snappier and I was missing a download manager like DownThemAll!. I've also noticed that several sites look nicer in Firefox font-wise. I have Direct2D disabled as I couldn't get used to the current font system in Firefox. And even with that being off some fonts are looking a lot better in Firefox.

looks awful, just make the domain red or something, making the rest light grey is too hard to read :(

So, in the latest nightly, (and actually on the stable, before 4.0.1), instead of updating, I always get an "Updates are available at http://nightly.mozilla.org/" instead of fx downloading the updates. Anybody else experiencing this?

Edit: Got it, forgot to run on admin :p

For the font issue:If you are using nightly there are several settings that landed in the about:config for manipulating font rendering.Changing "gfx.font_rendering.cleartype_params.rendering_mode" to 2 changes the text rendering mode to GDI Classic and fonts look perfect without switching HA off.

Is there any way to achieve this in 4.01 Final?

      Hello Neowinians.
       
      I have one question for all of you...
       
      What is this ugly, beta, squared, badly pixelated THING on my taskbar?
      It says News and interests and yes, I know its a new feature from Microsoft.
       
      But..
       
      How can a billion dollar company, with thousands of employees and rich history in software, design this?
      The sun icon looks very bad, the text that displays the weather is blurry and the app itself is sluggish. 
      How can they release something like this worldwide, without shame?
       
      I am serious...

      Mozilla releases final Firefox version before Proton upgrade
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has released Firefox 88 with several small but important updates, it is also the final version of Firefox to ship before Mozilla gives Firefox a facelift with the new Proton interface that we reported on earlier in the month. Some of the main changes in Firefox 88 include the disabling of FTP support and the isolation of window.name data to prevent cross-site privacy leaks.

      The most important change in this update is the fact that Mozilla has disabled support for the FTP protocol. The browser vendor said its full removal is planned in an upcoming release. The firm said the FTP protocol is a security risk for users because data isn’t encrypted and is therefore susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks. Disabling the feature will protect users while Mozilla fully removes support.

      The Proton interface set to arrive with Firefox 89 Another change on the security front is the isolation of window.name data to prevent cross-site leaks. Mozilla said that window.name data was exempt from the same-origin policy and attackers could take advantage of sensitive information stored this way. Firefox joins Safari in isolating window.name data with Chromium-based browsers planning to do the same in the future. If you’d like to see how this was implemented on a technical level, check out Mozilla’s blog post on the matter.

      Other new features include support for JavaScript embedded in PDF files, smooth pinch-zooming with a touchpad on Linux. and improved screen reader support. If you already have Firefox installed it should update on its own in the coming days but if you’d prefer to update it manually go to the menu, select Help, and then press About Firefox. Firefox should then download the update. If you run Linux, the update will be delivered soon via the update manager.

      What's new:

      PDF forms now support JavaScript embedded in PDF files. Some PDF forms use JavaScript for validation and other interactive features. Print updates: Margin units are now localized. Smooth pinch-zooming using a touchpad is now supported on Linux To protect against cross-site privacy leaks, Firefox now isolates window.name data to the website that created it. Learn more Fixed

      Screen readers no longer incorrectly read content that websites have visually hidden, as in the case of articles in the Google Help panel. Various security fixes. Changed

      Firefox will not prompt for access to your microphone or camera if you’ve already granted access to the same device on the same site in the same tab within the past 50 seconds. This new grace period reduces the number of times you’re prompted to grant device access. The ‘Take a Screenshot’ feature was removed from the Page Actions menu in the url bar. To take a screenshot, right-click to open the context menu. You can also add a screenshots shortcut directly to your toolbar via the Customize menu. Open the Firefox menu and select Customize… FTP support has been disabled, and its full removal is planned for an upcoming release. Addressing this security risk reduces the likelihood of an attack while also removing support for a non-encrypted protocol. Enterprise

      Various bug fixes and new policies have been implemented in the latest version of Firefox. You can see more details in the Firefox for Enterprise 88 Release Notes. Developer Information
