    I would like Mozilla to publish a strongly sandboxed Snap with minimal permissions. They can have the normal Snap for normal users, but I think should have a separate Snap that is strongly sandboxed so both can be installed side-by-side so I have one normal Firefox for trusted websites, and one strongly sandboxed one (no storage, Bluetooth, USB, etc) for untrusted websites.

      Dude why have you not installed adblock or got Phoronix Premium, even that screenshot is painful to look at

        Did they fix the broken video hardware acceleration from version 98?
        What is more important than that, do we really have to downgrade to version 97?

          You can safely browse porn by running FF in a virtual machine.

              I suggest AdNauseam. It's based on uBlock Origin and includes a Click Ads setting that clicks on every single ad the site presents -- that gives the website ad revenue while also fighting fire with fire since clicking everything makes tracking just as futile as blocking everything.

              As far as I know, that's the most ethical ad blocker due to having that setting...I haven't bothered looking for other ad blockers since someone suggested this one to me in a previous Phoronix thread months and months ago.

                But Wayland is default on Ubuntu, Fedora ... is it an Arch installer preset yet?

                    Has anyone worked out when Firefox‘s version number will overtake Chrome‘s, at their current release schedules?
