    Firefox on Fedora 22 has --enable-default-toolkit=cairo-gtk3 by default as reported on this very website. Look it up on about:buildconfig on the address bar. It is good that upstream has it enabled on nightly release

        Ditto. I dread the day I start seeing GTK+ 3.x Open/Save dialogs in my Firefox.

        /me wonders if that LD_PRELOAD hook to patch in KDE Open/Save dialogs has been updated for GTK+ 3.x.

          It's not like Firefox is using a lot of GTK ... mostly the context menu AFAIK, the rest is mainly in XUL.
          I, in the meantime, are looking forward to the day that all my relevant software runs on Wayland.

            You can get nightly builds, compiled binaries for Linux x86 and x86-64 built with GTK3 at:
            https://nightly.mozilla.org/

            However, it does not work with Wayland.
            At least I couldn't get it to work.
            It says "Error: could not find display:0" or something like that.

              Don't wory. By the time this change goes live Mozilla will have removed the HTML render pane from FF because it is, you know, too confusing for users. All you will have when you start up FF will be a looped video of an FF developer with arms crossed screaming "COMPLY" at you.

                  Hmm, this explains the strange save dialog and the smaller fonts on Awesome bar....

                    Just updated my Nightly, tooltips and menus look a lot more seamless in my GNOME now.
                    Wayland however, seems to be off at least by default.
