The Firefox browser is getting updates across desktop and mobile platforms. The browser will now enable macOS users to enter into Dark Mode which will make the page background dark grey and turn the text white. This will make it easier for users to read and browse in low light conditions and also make it less stressful on the eyes. Firefox will automatically sync its dark mode with that of macOS Mojave, which will release later this year. A similar update rolled out to the iOS version of the browser last week, letting users switch to Dark Mode manually as well as automatically.

Firefox is also getting support for CSS Variable Fonts which will let users create typography within a single file. What this means is that web pages with different fonts will not have to download them separately and will load less data as a result.  The Automatic Tracker Blocking feature will now remove any ad trackers and cookies from web pages, creating a faster, clutter-free and more secure browsing experience.

Users disconnecting from Sync are now offered the option to wipe their Firefox profile data (including bookmarks, passwords, history, cookies, and site data) from their desktop computer.

Meanwhile, Firefox for Android is also getting a speed update. The browser will now have faster load times and improved page scrolling.
