    I can't understand why FF hardware acceleration on Linux is not working yet, the driver guys are incredibly responsive to address bugs in the open source drivers, most games have a much smaller user base than FF yet people report bugs and those get fixed in days/weeks.

    What is the issue with Mozilla and FF, they find a bug and say to themselves: "this is not working" and then forgetting about it?

    Bizarre.

    Mozilla will always go where the money leads. Just ask them what it will take, I am sure they will tell you.
    Ah Mozilla, always focusing on the wrong issues:

    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.
    Well, WebRender is enabled by default on Linux Nightly from 2019/04/10 on Intel GPUs. So they're most definitely working on it...
