    Still no Wayland support, no Servo engine, no image pasting, no <input type="date", "datetime", "time", "week" or "month".

    Any more code written in Rust?

      This is going to be the big one.

        To me, the biggest thing is the dark theme. It's nicely done and now Firefox doesn't look so alien on my dark desktop.

          And I am wondering why this (still) disabled:
          HW_COMPOSITING - blocked by default: Acceleration blocked by platform
          OPENGL_COMPOSITING - unavailable by default: Hardware compositing is disabled

            In Fedora v25, Firefox can run under Wayland on GNOME (Wayland session).

                Natively or via XWayland?

                  Servo won't happen until Firefox 57 at the earliest. Why? Because they are giving extension makers time to switch to the new stable api for extensions. Until then, they can't do anything with the backend without breaking extensions.

                    Not happy about all this obsoleting hardware that might still be okay and doing the job. And yes, there is HW from that area that is not power hungry like crazy. But if you want to operate a few things from the old HW and you have any network connection you'll want to have an up-to-date web client SW. Here you don't want to use old versions, not because they're old but for security reasons and because some of those overscripted websites won't work on older browsers.
                    Besides I wonder what the actual focus of Mozilla is now.
                    Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
