    For the past two and a half years there has been a non-default Firefox package with Wayland support available to Fedora users running Fedora Workstation with the GNOME Shell. For the Fedora 30 release due out this spring, they are planning to ship the Firefox Wayland back-end by default...

            Konstantin A. Sorry to say it this way, but you simply have no clue about the matter and you know it

              You are aware that software isn't stuck in time from when you first used it, right? Everyone knew when it was first released as a non-default that it was a buggy mess. But that's the point, it allowed users to test and report bugs to make it not that buggy mess.

                  I think It hit a regression: https://github.com/Igalia/chromium/issues/512

                  (don't run it on a normal machine)
