    Unfortunately the setting does not have any effect in 89 on Linux/Wayland. It is already available, but only works on Win/MacOS. Only from 90 on it actually does something - and only in 91/nightly it seems to work reliably (it's still very new code so experiences may vary).
    Ah, that would explain the stability.

    At least Firefox works well under Wayland so far. I’ll see what happens when I’m on 90.

    ...tested via `gfx.webrender.compositor.force-enabled` in `about:config` - you'll most likely want to run FF nightly and a very recent compositor though.

    Why?
    Because you live in different reality from the rest of us, so stop trying to apply your "logic" to the rest of us.

    In 3:00:20 David shortly talks about a new experimental Firefox Wayland backend that defers composting work to the Wayland compositor instead of having an internal one that just sends the final result (what most apps/toolkits on X11/Wayland normally do so far). If anyone is interested in that work: it can be followed in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1617498 and tested via `gfx.webrender.compositor.force-enabled` in `about:config` - you'll most likely want to run FF nightly and a very recent compositor though.

    This work allows the FF Wayland to catch up with the CoreAnimation/DirectComposition ones on other OSs - and it's something that's unfortunately not possible on X11 due to missing atomicity in many areas.
