Firefox 76.0 is out today as the newest feature release to Mozilla's web browser.

On the Linux front one of the notable changes with Firefox 76 is enabling VA-API Wayland acceleration for all video codecs, building off the Wayland/VA-API work found in last month's Firefox 75.

Firefox 76.0 also features a variety of security improvements around account logins / password management, continued Picture-In-Picture video improvements, support for audio worklets for more advanced audio processing, continued roll-out of WebRender functionality, security improvements, and a variety of other improvements.
