    The developer tools are improved.
    Also now there is CSS variable support.

    Code:
    :root {
      --main-bg-color: brown;
    }
    
    .one {
      background-color: var(--main-bg-color);
      margin: 10px;
      width: 50px;
      height: 50px;
    }
    However the syntax is not as easy and pretty and convenient as the one in SASS and LESS.

        Ahh, those things that write 500 KB of unreadable CSS crap.

          Nothing too exciting then. I'm waiting for their GTK3 and especially MPE patches to land. Might even go back to using nightlies at that point... youtube w/ Dash and 1080p/1440 support will be nice. (I don't have any 4k displays yet)

                  Thanks!
                  Well it's apparently already fixed. Maybe for the next release?

                    There are a few crashes in the MSE code though, I guess they'll fix them before.

                      GGC

                      I believe Generational Garbage Collecting is in FF31, although i can't say I've really noticed any difference in everyday browser usage. Sounds like they need to make it compacting before they really get some memory-shrinking benefits out of it.

                        Still no gstreamer 1.0 by default. Though it works nicer with the dark desktop themes now.

                          I require screenshots of this miracle. Pics or didn't happen.

                            Using KDE 4.13 with Oxygen and Krita Dark color theme (gtk2-engines-oxygen is used for binding KDE settings with GTK applications).

                            Note the download arrow on the right of the URL bar and also sync icon on the right. They now look white (not dark) and when active use more appropriate colors.

                              Ha! I actually had a hand in that. I decided to use a dark theme after a while and the download icon would START white, but after you clicked it once it would go to a dark icon, so I filed a bug and apparently it was something Linux/OSx specific that was overlooked when they fixed the same bug in Windows. It was fixed ~2 days later in Nightly (guess they backported it to stable )

                              I can't seem to find the bug in bugzilla, and I must have deleted the reply email from my inbox... oh well

                              EDIT: weird... I found a duplicate bug of mine for OSx, but still not mine. *shrug*
                              EDIT2: Found it~ https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1008402
