Mozilla Firefox got a new monthly update recently, with minor new features, performance improvements and some bug-fixes.

When the browser is minimized or occluded, and for background tabs, the UI will now be throttled for better performance and battery usage. And, paste unformatted shortcut now works again in plain text contexts, such as input and text area.
Other changes in Firefox 104 include:
re-snappingproperties for developers.
