PiP subtitles, screenshots in ‘about’ pages & more – These Weeks in Firefox: Issue 125

Highlights

  • Highlights and updates are a little thin this week since a lot of the team is still recovering from All Hands.
  • cmkm added support for Picture-in-Picture subtitles for Frontend Masters! Check out an example here.
  • Shane made a change to allow accessing quick actions (via ‘> <SPACEBAR>’) even when the user has removed them from the suggestions.
  • Once bug 1790855 lands, the screenshots toolbar button will be enabled on about: pages when `screenshots.browser.component.enabled` is set to true. Bug is currently queued for landing. Set `screenshots.browser.component.enabled` to true to see the ongoing screenshots work.
  • Across the tree, more than 25% of our JSMs have been converted to ESMs! Keep up the good work, everybody!
