    I hope this fixes an issue in where the window became larger every time you opened a new window and "Use system title bar" is off.

      Still works like a poo poo on wayland. 60 fps capped, no vulkan, no hardware video acceleration.

        Firefox is behind Chrome at everything, even version numbers

          You sure about that?
          What about better Wayland support? Much better Vaapi support? Smooth scrolling that is actually smooth on x.org? Vastly better customizability via about:config?
          These are all areas where all Chromium browsers suck on Linux, while Firefox excells.

            I use Firefox, but between Chrome and Edge I prefer Edge. Edge is just much more polished, refined and user-friendly than Chrome. Edge also feels more native than Chrome which feels alien.

              Any news about the state of the Wayland backend? Running Electron apps with Wayland by default would be awesome.

                Let me guess: you're using Nvidia.

                  Here using AMD or Intel it did not have Vulkan (kinda useless for now) nor hardware video acceleration. But it is rendering above 60hz.
