      Doesn't seem to be enabled yet: tried https://quic.tech:8433/ - cannot connect, https://cloudflare-quic.com/ and https://quic.rocks:4433/ connects via HTTP2.

        Arch just released a new package for it. So quick!

        However I'm experiencing an annoying issue with mouse hover not properly changing the cursor (e.g. turning to a pointer when hovering above a link). Also highlighting while text selection is being dragged only shows after mouse release.

        Will probably file a bug for this. I'm using gnome wayland and can confirm firefox uses wayland.

          Looks like http3 support was tracked in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581637 but there's a couple outstanding issues being tracked here https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist...cksearch=http3 so not looking like it's ready to be enabled yet.

              To this day, the page you see resembles a FTP browser page.

                  I think Firefox is great and really like it.

                  Things I would like to see in Firefox:
                  • An option to toggle the prefers-color-scheme media query (dark mode) in the F12 Developer Tools.
                  • Support for the dialog element.
                  • Support for the "system-ui" font-family in CSS.

                    There's an add-on for this, but it only works for forcing the dark scheme (not the light scheme if you're already using the dark scheme): https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...site-switcher/
