Anyone using Firefox?
« on: August 17, 2020, 10:51:27 am »
I have all my other computers and phones on Firefox and love the Sync feature it has. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like Firefox on the Gemini is very usable, at least when I just checked it recently.

Has anyone figured out how to make Firefox usable or is it not really possible given the age of the code?

I guess you are referring to scrolling performance? Firefox benefits above average from disabling glamor on the gemini, takes scrolling from 0-1fps to 30+ fps. Note you have to switch to a different login screen (eg lightdm) and lose the ability to run any 3d accelerated applications

Yes, I mean the scrolling primarily. I haven't heard of glamor though. What is that and how do you disable it?
