    Yeah the vaapi-on-x11 shipped in FF 80, but with a bug that made it inoperable. Gentoo (and probably some other dists) backported the fix to the FF 80 branch though. Unfortunately the DMA-BUF requirement in Firefox means we won't be using vaapi with nvidia proprietary drivers any time soon. I just wish I didn't use GPGPU for work.

          I don't mind it. However, I did not like the update a couple of weeks ago that put the address bar on the bottom. My first 30 seconds of use was all "WTF happened to muh browser?!?!" and then I opened the settings menu and fixed it.

            i switched to prime render offload and forgot about nvidia if it is not for gaming.

              First I heard they lost non-"recommended" extension support, thus I delayed the update.
              Then I heard they even deleted the tab reorder function, then I will never "update" the Firefox for Android until it is fixed.
              I also heard it don't even retain my browsing session/password/tab opened, so I really don't know if I will ever "update" it anyway.

                  They're constantly asking for UI/UX feedback on Twitter and Github.

                    How is FreeBSD looking for VAAPI on Firefox 80 +, either FreeBSD-Wayland or FreeBSD-X11?
