◆ PDF viewer now supports text highlighting
The PDF viewer now supports text highlighting. This feature is subject to a 'progressive roll out,' with the feature being rolled out to a small number of users first.

◆Firefox View indicators have been improved
Firefox View's Open Tabs now shows pinned tabs, has added tab indicators so you can quickly mute/unmute playing media, and shows information like which tabs are bookmarked and which have notifications.

◆ A function to quickly open URLs from the clipboard has been added
When you focus on the address bar and the clipboard contains a URL, you can now open the URL without having to paste it.

* Improved navigation for radio button groups
In a radio button group with no options selected, the Tab key previously cycled through all options, but as of Firefox 125 it now only focuses on the first option. You can still use the arrow keys to focus each option.

The Developer Tools debugger panel now has a dedicated drop-down menu at the bottom of the source view for source map related actions.
