    Thank you.
    It's a good idea.
    I'm going to try it.

    Curiosity got the better of me so I looked this up as though this works for Firefox is it not universal for all programs. This site lists what this works for and what it does in case anyone was expecting it to work everywhere.

    But...

    I don't have any issues with copying/pasting/ editing while using any other browser but FIREFOX.

    Yes it's not working across all applications but AFAIK all main browsers support it.
    For Office I just set default pasting behaviour (for me it's merge) and you still have an option to change later.

    Fission was not magically enabled here after update.
    Had to set `fission.autostart` pref to `true`.

    On which OS?
    If that is on Linux (I see Linux Mint in your signature), perhaps Fission/ Site Isolation may not be enabled, yet, because of Known Issues. I don't know whether those issues are sufficiently fixed by now. I can wait.

    Yes, that is on Linux.

    Looking at the issues, I see that it's mainly occurring/has occurred with large tab counts.
    bug 1635451 is resolved already.
    And I don't have "large tab counts".

    Anyway, i don't have any issues with it (yet...). :)

    Installed it yesterday from the Mozilla FTP server. Running ok so far. Anyone know anything about the "Colorways" and why they are only available for a limited time?

    Yeah I got that too and dismissed it. I don't need any more themes, thanks. "limited time"--maybe Moz wants to evaluate whether this is a hit or a miss?

    Regarding Fission/ Site Isolation,
    Bugzilla 1732358, Enable Fission pref by default in Firefox 96, says:
    "The Fission rollout will enroll Firefox 94 and 95 users. We will pref on Fission by default in Firefox 96."
    If I understand correctly, Fission/ Site Isolation is rolled out for a selection of Firefox 94 and 95 users, it will be enabled for all users in Firefox 96.
    It would've been nice if those details were mentioned in the version 94 Release Notes.

    It was enabled here on this machine. I haven't checked the others yet.

    Not in the ESR version of Firefox yet until Fission is thoroughly tested in the rapid release regular Firefox.
