    Firefox on wayland, header bar integration and enabled hardware acceleration with amdgpu driver provide a smooth experience.

    FF64 from OpenSuse or from Mozilla? Distro maintainers may have added their own patches because the GDK_BACKEND switch was rather impractical. This was fixed in bug 1522780 by introducing a separate environment variable (MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND) that doesn't affect other applications.

    AFAIK the unix and windows pref were unified to browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar:

    Again: Xerox GlobalView desktop environment introduced headerbars and hamburger menus way back when, even before Thunderbird was born, so what is your definition of "old software"?

    It's called progressive enhancement. If your website doesn't work properly in links you're doing it wrong. I don't care if some irrelevant browser works as well as a text browser. Alt text is there in case pictures don't work.

    I run LibreOffice on my phone in an Arch Linux Arm chroot over VNC so I can draft up contracts. There might be an app that does what I need, but why change when I don't have to? I used to do Android roms and whatnot and it was nice having Kate, syntax highlighting, and git when on the go. I keep the VNC around because it's handy having the same programs everywhere...granted it is awkward, but it works...

    That makes 1 person running Plasma and desktop software on mobile. I'd have it on my tablet but I need a larger SD. FF Tactics, SoTN, and a bunch of other random games are more important.

    Just successfully built Firefox 65 on OpenSUSE 15.0

    Seems like the Wayland backend is not automatically used even when ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk3-wayland is provided at build time. I have to specify the use of Wayland at launch time for FF65 to start as a Wayland application, otherwise it defaults to x11.

    Which is strange, because FF64 automatically launches as a Wayland application by default with that build option.

    Other than that, there are no immediate user-facing changes that I can see. Most of the improvements are in the backend as usual.
