Performance and stability

Firefox 59 sports faster load times as compared to Firefox 58. There were a lot of issues users faced in Firefox 57 and 58 about slow TLS handshakes which are running fine in the latest release.

Off-Main-Thread Painting (OMTP) has been introduced to Mac users. This feature is available to Windows users from Firefox 58. This will give better rendering of graphics in the browser.

There are some reports of hardware acceleration breaking the rendering capabilities. Disabling hardware acceleration would be the best you can do at the moment.

Privacy and security

There has been a privacy issue about browser notifications. Browser notifications are on a rise which dig deep into user privacy. Firefox 59 adds a new setting in about:preferences to stop websites from asking to send notifications or access your device camera, microphone or location. You can also white-list some websites which will be allowed to use these features.

Other changes

Now you can use drag-and-drop to rearrange Top Sites on the Firefox Home page and new tab page. This will give more personalization to the user.

The screenshot feature of Firefox 59 has also been improved. Now you can draw and highlight parts of the saved screenshots. You can also re-crop to change the view-able area of saved screenshot.
