Mozilla Firefox 120 has landed, bringing with it a flurry of new features and improvements.
Firefox 120 now supports corner snapping for Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode on Windows and Linux1. This puts a PIP window back in a corner once it’s been moved elsewhere. To try it, hold the ctrl key and drag a PIP window in the direction of a screen corner, and bam—it’ll snap.
Firefox also adds a ‘Copy Link Without Site Tracking’ open to the context menu when right-clicking on links. This option ensures links copied to your clipboard do not contain any tracking information, source tags, or other extraneous data.
On the subject of tracking, Firefox 120 intros a Global Privacy Control setting in Preferences > Privacy & Security. When set, Firefox tells websites you do not want your data to be shared or sold. This option is not enabled by default so remember to turn it on to benefit.
These and other key changes in Firefox 120:
- Import data from Chromium snap
- Option to copy link without site tracking
- Picture-in-Picture supports corner snapping
- New DevTools feature simulates browser tabs being offline
- Fix for poor quality WebRTC audio capture on Linux
- Further fingerprinting protection in the Canvas API
- Global Privacy Control request header setting
- Option to open Firefox on system start up (Windows)
