Mozilla has published the Firefox 112.0 binaries today ahead of tomorrow's official unveiling.

Following last week's Google Chrome 112 release, Firefox 112 binaries were published today for that monthly Mozilla web browser update.

Notable for Ubuntu Linux users with Firefox 112 is now the ability to import browser data from the Chromium Snap package. Currently though the Snap-packaged version of Firefox cannot access the Chromium Snap browser data -- just the non-Snapped Firefox build.
