Firefox 26 for developers

Firefox 26 was released on December 10, 2013. This article lists key changes that are useful not only for web developers, but also Firefox and Gecko developers as well as add-on developers.

Changes for Web developers

CSS

  • The text-decoration-line property, still prefixed, now considers 'blink' as a valid value, though it doesn't blink the content at all (bug 812995).
  • The non-standard -moz-text-blink property has been removed (bug 812995).
  • Support for the image-orientation property, in its CSS Images & Values Level 4 version, that is with the from-image keyword and EXIF support, has been added (bug 825771).
  • Experimental support for position: sticky has been implemented and can be enabled by pref layout.css.sticky.enabled (bug 886646).
  • The text-align property now applies to the ::-moz-placeholder pseudo-element (bug 915551).
