With the Firefox 63 release out the door, Mozilla is now working hard on the next release in the Quantum series, Firefox 64, which is expected to arrive in mid-December with various improvements and enhancements.

Since the first beta releases of the upcoming Firefox 64 web browser already hit the testing channels, we thought to let you know about what to expect from the next major Firefox release. First and foremost, Firefox 64 will introduce new tab handling features to allow users to select multiple tabs from the tab bar.

With this, users can move, pin, bookmark, or even mute multiple tabs at once, quickly and easily. Furthermore, Firefox 64 will introduce the ability to remove add-ons by using the context menu added by add-ons on toolbar buttons. Both features will be available for all supported platforms.

For macOS users, Firefox 64 will add enterprise policy support, and on Windows 10, this release enables the WebRender function by default for systems with Nvidia GPUs, which should boost the performance and responsiveness of the web browser on Windows machines.

Firefox 64 removes support for RSS preview and live bookmarks

Among other noteworthy changes that will land in the upcoming Firefox 64 release, we can mention the removal of the support for RSS preview and live bookmarks, updated error pages for common TLS certificate issues, and redesigned about:crashes page to make it easier to submit crashes to Mozilla.

Other than that, Firefox 64 changes to URL bar autocomplete shortcuts to CTRL+Enter on Linux and Windows to canonicalize a word to a .com URL, and to CMD+Enter on macOS to open a link in a new tab. Firefox 64 is now available for beta testing for Linux, macOS, and Windows platforms. The final release drops December 11, 2018.
