Mozilla has just officially released the new Firefox 89 (stable version) on all supported desktop platforms including Windows, Linux and macOS. There will be quite a few notable changes on this update, including a series of interface-related improvements, new features as well as bug fixes and security patches needed for the ultimate user experience. more advantageous.

Let’s take a look at a few notable improvements and changes on this release right below.

Proton interface

The most notable new aspect that you can easily notice in this update is the Proton interface, which has been mentioned by Firefox for quite a while. A feature in this interface style is that the toolbar will be simplified to remove redundant, less-used features for a more intuitive feel. In addition, the menu system has also been refined in design, in which the most used features will become more prominent and noticeable.

In addition, on the Proton interface, pop-up notification windows as well as reminders have also been redesigned to be displayed more neatly, and unnecessary warnings and messages have also been removed. The attachment tab has also been replaced with floating tabs; Mozilla says the active tab’s rounded design “signals the ability to easily move the tab as needed.”

New notification window interface

All in all, the new interface gives Firefox a more “bright”, “dandy” look. However, there will certainly be some people who are not satisfied with such a complete change from the familiar traditional tab interface.

Private Browser Mode

Private Browser mode is now more “private” in Firefox 89 with the help of Total Cookie Protection. This feature will limit cookies in the website they are generated from. This prevents some companies from tracking internet users from one site to another.

In fact, Firefox 86 previously introduced Total Cookie Protection for the first time, but then, this feature was only enabled when Enhanced Tracking Protection switched to Strict Mode.

In addition, Firefox 89 also introduces a second version of SmartBlock that allows seamless browsing when trackers are blocked.

Some small features with Mac

For macOS users, Firefox 89 will be better integrated with the operating system. It can be mentioned as the feature that supports the “elastic” scrolling effect. The animation will bounce gently as an indicator to the user that they have scrolled to the bottom of the page.

In addition, Firefox 89 will also support smart zoom. To use this feature, simply double-tap with two fingers on the trackpad or with one finger on the Magic Mouse to zoom content below your cursor into focus.


Of course, the new version of Firefox also comes with many security improvements for the browser. This is one of the main reasons that users should install new updates as soon as possible.

For complete information about the security fixes in the new Firefox 89, you can refer to Mozilla’s support documentation HERE.

At the time of writing, there are no reports of problems with this new version of Firefox. This is good news because some new updates often crash right after they start being released.

Mozilla has shortened the release cycle of major Firefox updates from 6 weeks to 4 weeks, so in the near future we should see Firefox updates appear more dense. This will help Mozilla quickly solve the backlog issues on the browser, optimizing the user experience.

As usual, the new version of Firefox will be sent to users via the built-in updater system, but you can also download it manually by going to Menu (3 horizontal dashes) => Help => About Firefox.
