A few interesting changes for web developers. Finally bringing in native date and time selectors and trying to bring some of their JS deviations in line with the standards. Also adding support for graphics libraries is kewl.

Can somebody tell me how this relates to Nightly?

Features from Nightly flow down into standard Firefox. All (or most) of the Nightly features that people have been using are now in mainstream Firefox. Nightly will now start having new experimental features.

This version was Nightly before becoming Beta before becoming Stable. Nighlty is the next release.

New application icon, new widgets, new tabs, new everything. It has got some influences from Chrome's usability. One thing I liked is that a single click on the address bar will select everything in there, so you can just click, type and press enter.

See, I'd rather click and go where the cursor is so I can select or change parts of the URL. :v Maybe they could set that as an about:config value.

That actually already is in about:config

Just set browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll to False and it'll work the way you'd like.

Sure, an option within the settings page to change this behavior would be fair for everyone. There's nothing there yet. We should fill a request on the bug tracker.

Yeah, I don't think it's big enough to warrant a Settings option. Of all things it's not a big gripe. So far it's still pretty good.
