Mozilla writes about Firefox 54 and Electrolysis, but when I installed Firefox 54 64-bit on Windows 10, multiprocess was disabled. After I had enabled it, there was only one content-process. I had to increase the number of processes.

Since the last time I looked at Firefox on Windows, the content-process’ integrity level has been changed from medium to low. It is still not run as a job object. It is at level one: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Sandbox#Windows
Firefox 56 beta looks better. The content processes are run as job objects, with almost the same restrictions as Chrome’s content processes.

How to enable First-Party Isolation in Firefox
Quote
With First-Party Isolation enabled, tracking ends at the domain level which means that advertisers cannot use cookies anymore to create user profiles by dropping and reading cookies across the Internet.

1 - Go to about:config
2 - Find privacy.firstparty.isolate
3 - Double-click on it and make it true

Done.

Speaking of tracking, it is now easier to enable tracking protection. Go to about:preferences#privacy

Yes, it is using Disconnect's lists to block trackers. Many of times it blocks tracker adverts.
Makes pages load faster than before.

Great for Firefox users, no need to use any other add-on.

The sandbox level is 4 in Firefox 58 (Beta) and 5 in Firefox 59 (Nightly). The latter is not yet documented at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Sandbox

To see the level, go to about:support. The level can be changed. Go to about:config and search for security.sandbox.content.level

Attached is an image of Firefox 59 (same sandbox as 57 on Linux) on Ubuntu 17.10.

Firefox 59 has a nice new feature: it supports AOMedia Video 1 (AV1). You can watch Tears of Steel in AV1 here: https://demo.bitmovin.com/public/firefox/av1/

Don’t expect great performance when watching 1920×800. AV1 is quite complex, and the software used to decode it is not yet very well optimised.
