Speaking of the Awesome Bar, another noteworthy change in the new Firefox is that it now auto-completes the URL as you type it, thus potentially speeding up your searches.

4. Plug-In Control

Then, too, there's a new click-to-play feature that gives users better control over how plug-ins like Flash and Quicktime work. When enabled, the feature blocks the automated display of content based on plug-ins until the user specifically clicks on it, thus offering protection against potentially malicious plug-in-based attacks.

5. Additional Support

Finally, other notable new additions you'll find in Firefox 14.0.1 are native full-screen mode on OS X Lion 10.7 for a better experience with videos and Web games as well as developer-oriented support for Pointer Lock API, giving applications better control over the mouse.
