Following the release of Firefox 48 beta, Mozilla developers also announced the list of changes we can expect for Firefox 49. Let's see what they are.
Additionally, Reader mode will get the ability to adjust the line height and indents.
Firefox 49 will also allow you to loop HTML5 audio and video. To do that, the context menu of the media element will get the appropriate item. You will be able to right click on the media and find commands to loop the playback or increase the speed to 1.25 times.
Other notable changes expected in Firefox 49 are:
- Improved video performance on computers without video hardware acceleration but with CPUs which support the SSE3 instruction set.
- Further WebExtensions API improvements to support history API, advanced TransitionType property. Loading more Chrome extensions in Firefox will be possible.
- D3D11 WARP support for Windows 7.

- Improved performance in Mac OS X on systems without hardware video acceleration.
- Improved font smoothing in Mac OS X.
