Mozilla laid the foundation with Firefox 120. Among other things, separate process for executing extensions has been enabled and optional WebExtension permissions are now supported. In addition, the Add-ons screen now displays a link under Recommended Extensions to go to the Mozilla platform, which can now also be used to install extensions. At this time, there are no additional plugins to be found there. These should appear over the next few weeks.

Other new features of Firefox 120 for Android

For logged in users, Firefox for Android Account Settings now displays a button to manage the user account. This can be used, among other things, to change the password or delete a Mozilla account.
