Already out. Get it from your internal updater

Version 84.0, first offered to Release channel users on December 15, 2020

We'd like to extend a special thank you to all of the new Mozillians who contributed to this release of Firefox.
2020 was a year like no other. By March, the world dramatically changed. Despite that, we kept our schedule to release a new Firefox every month to keep Firefox working for you. While we eagerly look to the end of 2020, we thought to take stock of this unprecedented year. Along with all that is new with this release, see our list of top features that made 2020 a little easier.

New

  • Native support for macOS devices built with Apple Silicon CPUs brings dramatic performance improvements over the non-native build that was shipped in Firefox 83: Firefox launches over 2.5 times faster and web apps are now twice as responsive (per the SpeedoMeter 2.0 test). If you are on a new Apple device, follow these steps to upgrade to the latest Firefox.
  • WebRender rolls out to MacOS Big Sur and Windows devices with Intel Gen 5 and 6 GPUs. Additionally we'll ship an accelerated rendering pipeline for Linux/GNOME/X11 users for the first time, ever!
  • Firefox now uses more modern techniques for allocating shared memory on Linux, improving performance and increasing compatibility with Docker.
  • Firefox 84 is the final release to support Adobe Flash.

I thought v. 84 was supposed to have an option "Bookmarks Toolbar on NTP only"? :whistle:🤔:(
See whether you can find your answer here

Nope. I know it was in Nightly v 84
Are you looking for this? That is having the bookmarks/bookmark folders display horizontally below the address bar for faster access?
