        Using it already, as the stating Snap version update to it last night. Love that they have implemented network partitioning.

          Type "about:config" on the search bar. Search for "media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled" and "gfx.webrender.all", then set them both to "True". Close Firefox, then start it using the command "MOZ_X11_EGL=1 firefox". To make that permanent you can edit the launching command of the icon or menu entries in the desktop environment you use (Gnome, KDE, XFCE, etc). If your GPU does not have acceleration for the VP9 codec, install the "h264fy" extension.

          All this will reduce CPU usage, but will not turn it to zero. Here it dropped from ~30% to ~10% on a i7 3770k. And that is in both Firefox and Chrome with acceleration enabled.

            I use Firefox but I'm very worried with the state of the browser. Mitchell Baker is working hard to decrease the Firefox marketshare and end its brand.

            Blink monopoly is almost complete.

                  I think eva is referring to mozilla actively banning wrongthink, per their blog, and sending AntiFa donations to burn down your cities.

                    Yes, your how-to is right.
