    Problems I find with Firefox.
    • All too common on startup with "Well this is embarrassing, Firefox is having trouble recovering your tabs".
    • No support for input type=date, time and datetime.
    • Developer tools lack support for inspecting messages over WebSockets and Server-Sent Events.
    • Video playback problems on YouTube. Videos not starting, having to reload the page several times.
    • No support for Wayland.

    1. I've never seen that happen, and I've been using Firefox exclusively for a little over a year now. At the very least, I've seen the recovery page appear, but only if I close the browser in some awkward way (such as shutting down the computer while FF is open)

    4. Never had that happen either (using HTML player).
