Mozilla has released its Firefox 62 web browser for macOS, featuring a new Mojave-ready automatic dark theme and variable font support.
By introducing a dark theme to the browser, Mozilla is following up the one it added to its mobile counterpart last month, the only difference being that the desktop version comes with intelligent support for the new native Dark Mode featured in macOS 10.14 Mojave.
Firefox will automatically switch to the darker theme when ever macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode is activated. This provides a uniform desktop experience with the new Mac operating system without the need for action on the user’s part.
Firefox’s new variable font support makes it easy for web designers to create typography using a single font file, with no need to generate files for variations of the same font.
Also listed in this release’s changelog: Firefox Home (default new tabs) can now display up to four rows of top sites, Pocket stories, and highlights, while a “Reopen in Container” tab menu option appears for users with Containers that lets them choose to reopen a tab in a different container.
Lastly, disconnecting from the desktop version of Firefox Sync prompts the browser to ask if you want to wipe your Firefox profile, including passwords, history, cookies, and web data.
Firefox 62 is available for macOS as a free download from the Mozilla website.
