What’s new or coming up in Firefox desktop
Firefox 100 is now in beta, and will be released on May 3, 2022. The deadline to update localization is April 24.
As part of this release, users will see a special celebration message.
You can test this dialog by:
- Opening about:welcome in Nightly.
- Copying and pasting the following code in the Browser Console:
If you’re not familiar with the Browser Console, take a look at these old instructions to set it up, then paste the command provided above.
What’s new or coming up in mobile
Just like Firefox desktop, v100 is right around the corner for mobile.
- Firefox for Android and Focus for Android: deadline is April 27.
- Firefox for iOS and Focus for iOS: deadline is April 24.
Some strings landed late in the cycle – but everything should have arrived by now.
What’s new or coming up in web projects
Relay Website and add-on
The next release is on April 19th. This release includes new strings along with massive updates to both projects thanks to key terminology changes:
- alias to mask
- domain to subdomain
- real email to true email
To learn more about the change, please check out this Discourse post. If you can’t complete the updates by the release date, there will be subsequent updates soon after the deadline so your work will be in production soon. Additionally, the obsolete strings will be removed once the products have caught up with the updates in most locales.

What’s new or coming up in Pontoon
We added a notification for suggestion reviews, so you’ll now know when your suggestions have been accepted or rejected. These notifications are batched and sent daily.
Changes to Fuzzy strings
Soon, we’ll be making changes to the way we treat Fuzzy strings. Since they aren’t used in the product, they’ll be displayed as Missing. You will no longer find Fuzzy strings on the dashboards and in the progress charts. The Fuzzy filter will be moved to Extra filters. You’ll still see the yellow checkmark in the History panel to indicate that a particular translation is Fuzzy.
