Do you remember the days when Firefox on Android was demonstrably terrible? It's really come a long way since then thanks to an accelerated release cycle and beta channel for Android. There's a new version graduating from beta to stable today, but it's not a huge update. Most of the changes are bug fixes and minor tweaks, but an update is an update.

Here's the changelog for the new version straight from Mozilla.

NEW

  • Paste Android clipboard content into editable web content
  • Support for 'switch' role in ARIA 1.1 (web accessibility)

CHANGED

  • Removed support for insecure SSLv3 for network communications
  • Disable use of RC4 except for temporarily whitelisted hosts
  • Sync now only uses the strongest TLS configuration available on your device. If you self-host Sync, see http://docs.services.mozilla.com/howtos/configure-tls.html for details.

HTML5

  • Enable the Fetch API by default
  • List-style-type now accepts a string value
  • Implement <link rel="preconnect">
  • Cascading of CSS transitions and animations now matches the current spec
  • Added support for CSS Scroll Snap Points

FIXED

  • Improve performance for IPv6 fallback to IPv4
  • Fix incomplete downloads being marked as complete by detecting broken HTTP1.1 transfers
  • Various security fixes

The clipboard improvement is probably the most significant change. Kind of weird it couldn't do that before. Everything else seems minor. The stable version is available in the Play Store for everyone, but we've also got it on APK Mirror if you prefer.
