Firefox 89 for desktop brings a brand new design

Prasad, 03 June 2021

Mozilla has rolled out version 89 of its Firefox browser for Windows, macOS, and Linux. The new update brings with it a brand new interface that changes practically every visible aspect of the venerable desktop browser.

The primary change can be seen right away with the new tab bar. Firefox 89 features a new floating tab design that has a more fresh and modern look. Mozilla says they detached the tab to "invite you to move, rearrange and pull out tabs into a new window to suit your flow, and organize them so they’re easier for you to find."

The UI chrome or the general appearance of the user interface surrounding the browser window has also been made more minimal and clutter-free.

Firefox has also received a new coat of paint for its menu designs, which like the rest of the browser are now less square and have a more organic and modern look.

Even the notification prompts have been redesigned and also have specifically been optimized to reduce some of the re-prompting associated with sites like Google Meet.

On macOS specifically, Firefox now has native appearance to the context menus. You will also now get the gentle elastic bounce effect when you reach the end of a page, similar to Safari. You can also double tap with two fingers on a trackpad or single finger on a Magic Mouse to zoom, again, similar to Safari. All of these changes will finally make Firefox feel like a native Mac app rather than just a Windows port.

I miss FireFox 88. Version 89, with its lack of contrast at the tab bar, and especially the overbearing default icons for user "Top Sites," is awful.
