The Latest Firefox update gives MacBook Pro users a new reason to ditch Safari

The latest version of the Firefox web browser is rolling out for users on macOS and Windows, bringing some minor but welcome quality-of-life improvements – including 120Hz refresh rate support.

You can now experience speedier scrolling when browsing the web if you’re using one of the top web browsers available on a laptop like the MacBook Pro 16-inch (2021) or if your monitor has a VRR of 120Hz or higher.

The 120Hz Firefox update means pages will look less blurry as you scroll them, letting you more easily skim through content to find the nugget of information or link that you’re after.

Finding what you need in PDFs is also getting easier. Firefox will now automatically highlight parts of a PDF that you need to fill in, making it easier to complete your digital documents.

A few new accessibility improvements are also included. When utilizing picture-in-picture to view a movie with subtitles, you may easily alter the font size from within the video’s window, making it much simpler to enlarge or reduce the text. Picture-in-picture subtitles are now supported on a few new websites, including Funimation and Dailymotion.

Windows’ “Make text bigger” setting now adjusts the size of all text in the browser, not just system font sizes, if you wish to make all the text in Firefox larger. Additionally, Firefox will now be pinned to the taskbar during installation on Windows 10 and Windows 11, making it simpler to launch the browser on Microsoft’s OS.

Last but not least, you can finally use your keyboard to access the Tabs toolbar. Just use Ctrl/Cmd+L to reach the address bar, then Tab and Shift+Tab to move between the toolbar’s groups of buttons. Once you’ve found the right group the left and right arrow keys will let you move through individual buttons in that group.
