Firefox 72 Nightly adds adaptive scrollbars on Windows

Firefox 72 which is currently in the Nightly phase has just gained a new feature, adaptive scrollbars that blend with the dominant colour of the webpage. The latest addition, which was spotted by a Reddit user, only seems to be working on Windows right now but could arrive on Linux later on. With several websites supporting adaptive themes based on the theme of the browser, the adaptive scrollbars are certainly a welcome change.

Firefox 72 is currently slated to release on January 7, 2020. It’s not clear what features Firefox 72 will ship with in all but we do know that notification prompts will be a lot less annoying. Rather than showing a popup every time a site wants to show notifications, the notification icon in the URL bar will wiggle to get your attention. After you click the icon you can choose to subscribe to notifications.

Before Mozilla pushes Firefox 72 with its adaptive scrollbars, the company still has to release Firefox 71 which is in beta and due for release on December 3. That update will bring some UI enhancements too including a new Certificate Viewer that’s easier to use and includes more features and details. Firefox 71 could also ship with a new about:config page which is built using JavaScript and HTML instead of XUL.
