Mozilla Foundation has released a new feature update for the Firefox browser. Version 127 is now available in the Release channel with a few important changes, such as the ability to autostart the browser when you turn on your Windows computer, a new "Close duplicated tabs" command, additional protections for saved passwords (the browser will prompt you to authenticate using your system password and biometrics), and security fixes.

Firefox 127 also brings a big update for the built-in screenshot tool. You can now take screenshots in SVG and XML and screenshot more pages. Also, the tool now features better accessibility and additional keyboard shortcuts.
What is new in Firefox 127?

New features:

You can now set Firefox to automatically launch whenever you start or restart your Windows computer. Setting Firefox to auto-launch optimizes efficiency in our browser-centric digital routines, eliminating manual startup delays and facilitating immediate web access. (Learn more)
We completed work to optimize and enable DNS prefetching for HTTPS documents via the rel="dns-prefetch" link hint. This standard allows web developers to specify domain names for important assets that should be resolved preemptively.
It is now possible to close all duplicate tabs in a window with the Close duplicate tabs command available from the List all tabs widget in the tab bar or a tab context menu.
Firefox will now automatically try to upgrade img, audio, and video elements from HTTP to HTTPS if they are embedded within an HTTPS page. If these so-called mixed content elements do not support HTTPS, they will no longer load.
For added protection on MacOS and Windows, a device sign in (e.g. your operating system password, fingerprint, face or voice login if enabled) can be required when accessing and filling stored passwords in the Firefox Password Manager about:logins page.

What makes me smile is you can make any browser, app or program autostart just by putting its shortcut in the shell:startup folder.
