    And soon we'll hear the sound of another Turd from Moz splashing into the bowl.

        With the Firefox-Nightly wayland build you get a blank page and you don't see the mouse pointer on Plasma-Wayland (besides no Window frames, wrong font dpi/scaling, wrong mouse pointer if you start with the -p profile parameter)... never tested how good it works on Gnome, but there are still several open blocking bugs too. Touch works with a config setting, but as it seems to introducd other bugs, it is disabled as well. And hardware acceleration is still blocked for Linux. Don't know how many more years Mozilla want to spent until they improve the basics for Linux, but some of the bugs are related to Gtk too.

          Damn, the edges of this post cut me through the screen.

            Do you mean this one:

            MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1
            https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1091627

            I just tried this. It almost works. Seems to support scrolling, pinching and holding for context menu, but quite buggy. It mostly zoomed when I want to scroll with one finger Back to ScrollAnywhere addon

              Yes, this option. It works, but is slow... just compared it to Falkon on Wayland, which is butter smooth and the touch events like scrolling and zooming feel natural like on a mobile. I think I need to reconsider Falkon, there I just miss my password hasher addon (which is essential to me) :-(

                It's not blocked, it's just not enabled by default. I'm running with `layers.acceleration.force-enabled` since basically forever.

                  I use it as well, but without being the default it's not available to most users and hence I said it's blocked. Mozilla should do some homework.

                    Fedora 28 with Gnome, Firefox nightly with Flatpak works otherwise fine but fonts are rendered partially on top of each other and EGL context can't be created
