    I would like to see support for input type=date|datetime|time|number.

    Also looking forward to the upcoming GTK3 and Wayland support.

    It's pretty shitty that Firefox view-source doesn't do line numbering and syntax highlighting for JavaScript, JSON and CSS files.
    Doesn't Firefox need XEmbedd for plugins like Flash? I don't know how can that be ported to Wayland (I can only think of a nested X and Firefox acting as a sub-compositor)

    No, that is only for non-Flash plugins like Java or Silverlight. Flash still plays automatically, if installed, by default.

    could be imgur itself as that website is always dying due to too little bandwidth and pages not displaying. There are just so many reddit users using it.

    For me Firefox keeps crashing ever since the 25 update. But not in safe mode and there's nothing in the distro bug tracker about it, so I think that's some extension causing this...

    Funny thing - one of the few sites that looks like garbage on Firefox on my Android phone is Phoronix. Looks perfect on Chrome, but I can't get font sizing correct for some reason on Firefox. Half the page looks grotesquely enormous, and half the page is so tiny that it's unreadable.

    I run nightly on my android devices and it's usually very solid (I've a few bugs open but they've been unable to replicate but I gave them traces so...we'll see;interestingly it was b/c of this site's commenting system that I was filing the bugs---for some reason a newline character crashed the browser).
    However, right now it's pretty unstable and it hasn't updated for more than a week...of course this is b/c I've more than 200 tabs open (it's consuming more than 400MB just by maintaining that list...why? why aren't they using lighter objects to represent old, but currently unloaded, tabs?).
    On my phone, however, I've around 130 tabs and it's running perfectly.
    IOW, ff is pretty damn spiffy, and though I like some chrome's interface more (along with their click disambiguation) I use ff b/c they produce something that is desparately needed---an alternate to webkit based browsers that are also very standards compliant.
