    Mozilla will always go where the money leads. Just ask them what it will take, I am sure they will tell you.
    Or even contributing to/opening a bounty on bountysource or similar sites, if you want your money to go to whoever fixes the specific issue you want solved.

      At this point, I hope they loose whatever funding from Google they still have so that only volunteers (or let's dream, people funded with RedHat money) are left coding. Maybe then Free Software users would be back as a priority target.
      Volunteers work on what they want to work on. Paid employees work on what they're paid to work on. All you're doing is bitching and that just makes people ignore you, or react with hostility to whatever you have to say. If you want a feature to get integrated to any project find a volunteer willing to implement and maintain it, do it yourself, or put your money where your mouth is.

      Mozilla is concentrating on where the majority of their user base is, which is on Microsoft Windows and Windows users mostly use either Intel or Nvidia GPU hardware because that's what the OEMs put in desktop and laptop (Optimus) products. It's mostly system builders that have AMD hardware because it's like pulling teeth to get not-low-end non-server hardware with AMD hardware from the OEMs. You can thank Intel's anti-competitive tactics for that along with several years worth of under-performing AMD CPUs.

        Mozilla said it needs standardized GPU acceleration and they're waiting for it to be implemented in systemd.

          the ability to block known cryptominers/fingerprinters
          Does this mean Add-ons such as NoMiner are obsolete?

            Why so mad? They are small, they need to prioritize by market share.
            Plus, you can enable web render in the preferences right now if you want. Hint: it doesn't make any difference.

              Windows should be a priority for them because most of their users use Windows (https://data.firefox.com/dashboard/hardware), so it is a normal thing.

                    The lowest hanging fruit, which is codec independent, is scaling of the output. What's the status of that?

                    I can tell that this is pretty significant, at least on my homemade ARM laptop, which has no acceleration whatsoever: it drops to 4 FPS once I fullscreen any video regardless of resolution.

                      I'm waiting for hardware accelerated video encoding / decoding support now.
