◆ Update of address bar
Clicking on the address bar now displays frequently used sites. To avoid opening the same site multiple times, if you try to open a site that is already open in another tab, that tab will be displayed.

The address bar itself has also grown a bit larger. The suggestion feature is also easier to read because the 'next word' is more focused.

◆ Certificate
All trusted certificate authority certificates recognized by Mozilla will be cached locally. As a result, the possibility of HTTPS communication with the incorrectly set web server has been improved.

◆ Linux version
The behavior of the address bar of Firefox for Linux has been unified in the same way as other platforms, and it is now possible to easily install it using Flatpak.

◆ Improved performance
In Windows version, Direct Composition is used and performance is improved. By using Direct Component, it will be possible to implement WebRender that accelerates image processing for PCs equipped with Intel GPUs in the future.

・ Changes for developers
◆ Image delay loading function
By setting the <lazy> value to the loading attribute of the <img> element, the image will not be loaded until it enters the viewport.
