Here are our highlights of what’s coming up in the Firefox 84 release:
- You can now zoom extension panels, popups, and sidebars using Ctrl+scroll wheel (Cmd+scroll wheel on macOS).
- Under certain circumstances, search engine changes weren’t being reset when an add-on was uninstalled. This has been fixed now.
Manage Optional Permissions in Add-ons Manager
As we mentioned last time, users will be able to manage optional permissions of installed extensions from the Firefox Add-ons Manager (about:addons).
We recommend that extensions using optional permissions listen for
browser.permissions.onRemoved API events. This ensures the extension is aware of the user granting or revoking optional permissions.
We would like to thank Tom Schuster for his contributions to this release.
