As a Google search user, it's a feature that I always liked in Google Chrome. Brave also has this on all platforms. I didn't expect Firefox to ever have this, so I welcome this feature(y)
I once discovered a movie like this from a search suggestion on Chrome. I was intrigued by the poster, clicked on the search suggestion and seeing that Ethan Hawke was in it, I ended up downloading, watching and relatively enjoying that movie.

Firefox 122.0.1 stable version coming soon today, no info yet on release notes:
  • Fixed the Library and Sidebar context menus only displaying Multi-Account Containers icons in the "Open in New Container Tab" menu. (Bug 1876518)
  • Fixed an issue when clicking the Dismiss button in notification pop-ups on Windows causing a webpage in a new tab. (Bug 1848801)
  • Fixed the yaru-remix system theme not applying correctly on Linux. (Bug 1877002)
  • Fixed adding an extra new line to a rule in the Developer Tools' Inspector when copying it to the clipboard. (Bug 1876220)
  • Rolled back a keyboard behavior change made to the Developer Tools' Rules view when validating a property name or input with the Enter key.
    This moves the focus to the next input, as was the behavior in Firefox 121. (Bug 1877457)

Mozilla released Firefox 123 a few days ago, and it comes with a new feature. The browser now supports Tab Previews, but you can't access it directly from the Settings.

The feature is quite similar to Tab Preview that is available in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi, Opera, and Brave Browser. When you hover the mouse over a tab, the browser displays a thumbnail of the web page. This can be useful if you want to view a tab's contents without actually switching between tabs.

Mozilla introduced the feature in the nightly version of Firefox earlier this month, before adding support for it in the stable version. Though Tab Previews are available in the latest version of Firefox, the feature is not enabled by default, likely because some bugs are being sorted out. There is no option that you can toggle from the browser's settings. Instead, you will need to make a change in the advanced configuration. Here's how you can do it.

1. Open about:config.
2. Click on Accept the Risk and Continue.
3. Paste the following text in the search bar.

browser.tabs.cardPreview.enabled

4. The flag is set to false by default.
5. Double-click on it to change it to true.

Note: browser.tabs.cardPreview.showThumbnails must also be set to true.

Now, if you feel that the Tab Previews are displayed slowly, there is another setting that you can change. Look for the following setting: browser.tabs.cardPreview.delayMs
It is set to 1000ms (1 second) by default, so the Tab Previews are displayed 1 second after you move the cursor over a tab. Set the value to 500ms or lower to reduce the delay. You can set it to 200ms to make the previews appear instantly.

Firefox 124 official release later today,:

New​

  • Caret browsing mode now also works in the PDF viewer. (Learn more)
  • In Firefox View, open tabs can now be sorted by either recent activity or tab order. Recent activity is the default setting.
  • Firefox now populates the Windows taskbar jump list more efficiently, which should allow for a smoother overall browsing experience.
  • Firefox on Mac now uses the macOS fullscreen API for all types of fullscreen windows. This should better match the expected macOS user experience for fullscreen spaces, menubar and the Dock.
  • As of Firefox 124, Qwant's availability has been expanded to all languages in the France region along with Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and Switzerland.

Fixed​
