      Picture-in-Picture again? Why?

      I know I should shut up and (try to) do this myself, but someone should release a fork of Firefox with all of the damn features no sane person would ever use disabled by default. Notifications off, location sharing off, camera sharing off, VR/AR sharing off, and now Picture-in-Picture off.

        Does this mean Multi-Account Container extension is now redundant?

          I do use Picture-in-Picture and I do consider myself a sane person. I usually use it to have a video playing in a small windows while doing something else.

          But I mostly agree with the notifications. Though after I get asked about for notifications once, I disable them globally anyway, so it's not that big of a deal.

            You can please some of the people all the time, most of the people some of the time but never all of the people all of the time, welcome to the human race.

            If we had nothing to tweak us nerds and geeks would complain we had nothing to tweak.

                This version also finally makes the Wayland backend update based on frame callbacks - i.e. at display refresh rate when visible or not at all when not visible.

                  Yes, every settings combo should have its own dedicated distribution
                  Don't want the features? Disable them yourself, they'll stay like that forever.

                    I'm going to stick with "reject 3rd party cookies", but this is a nice addition.
                    Cookies are meant for session data, not to enable 3rd parties to build businesses on top of them.
