    Gnome is definitely not for power users, if I had the spare time to fix up thing, I would not touch Gnome but use Enlightenment.

    Issue persists in both home (i7-4770 + RX-570) aswell as Work (some Xenon + Nvidia Dell PC) with dual screens each, I rather guess that neither the devs nor the happy Gnome users do anything but open Firefox on a single screen.
    Although I initially didn't like the GNOME3 UI I got used to it, and can consider myself a happy Gnome user, and I am using Gnome DE with i5 and a triple-monitor set-up (DELL laptop screen plus two additional DELL displays), and I am not seeing the issues (screen blanking, nautilus issues), so definitely not a single-screen Firefox user. It would be great if you could report bugs to help investigate.

      I can't help but think a short video showing these would be really nice.

        Does it support per-monitor scaling?

          Very nice with the performance improvements. The animations are smoother. Unfortunately still last too long because the defined duration is too long, so you still have to wait.
          The animation is also this weird folding animation that feels rather awkward, and not smooth like a sliding animation.

          I like GNOME 3.32, but unfortunately I've experienced some freezes and crashes of GNOME Shell. It could need some stability and reliability improvements. Every time I open a link in HexChat it seems to temporarily freeze GNOME Shell then reload GNOME Shell.

            It should. I can't test it though, since I can't use Wayland.

              Do you have a Nvidia card or what else?

                  Using Gnome nowadays is about to click double/triple times to access the things you reached easily in the past, the design obsession to hide everything...
                  ​​​​​​ That big icons in the apps menu looks like a baby toy game, so inefficient also that sub-folders to group apps, vague and cumbersome at same time.

                    It is a keyboard orientated desktop. Pressing CMD + start typing application name is the preferred way of launching applications.

                    Well implemented software runs in all machines, like the Xfce desktop. Redhat is a tool of microsoft and ibm to prevent Linux desktop success. That is the real reason for gnome3, pulseaudio, networkmanager and pulseaudio. Pro programmers do not design and implement so poor software unless forced.
                    Do you want a hug?

                      If we wanted a keyboard orientated desktop, we'd install Sway, Awesome, i3, etc.

                      IMHO, a major desktop suite needs to be easy to use with any setup a person likes. KDE and XFCE are just as easy with a mouse+keyboard as they are with just a keyboard since everything convenient and most used can usually be done within three clicks.

                      Personally, I prefer hitting F12, having a terminal drop down, and running arbitrary commands from there. I've had a lot of issues over the years with random programs deciding to bug out from typed out launchers and having to then run the command from a terminal to figure out my problems. I'd rather cut out the launcher BS and just run stuff from a terminal. Current program having that issue -- WattmanGTK. It doesn't start when using the AMD staging kernel. I should probably submit that as an issue...
