Fedora 40 Firefox 100% CPU doing nothing and doesn't close unless killed
  • Whenever you have issue with Firefox, first thing that you should try is 'Troubleshoot mode' -

    Firefox Menu > Help > Troubleshoot Mode

  • Which distro do you find the most visually appealing?
  • I think that's for Gnome App developers and not for regular users.

  • Running a business using linux
  • Firefox Containers are for Cookies and Storage separation. Profile, on the other hand, is a COMPLETE separation in all aspects of Firefox's user data, setup , add-ons.

  • Running a business using linux
  • Always use a separate Firefox profile for banking needs.

  • Those who are using Nvidia's driver 555, what's your experience in Wayland so far? Those who are using it in conjunction with KDE 6.1, what's your experience with multi-monitor VRR in Wayland?
  • Ubuntu 24.04 + Gnome 46 + Wayland + Nvidia Rtx 3070 Ti + Driver v555 + Kernel v6.9.3

    • Initially noticed a minor lag when opening Application windows. Then reinstalled libnvidia-egl-wayland1 and apparently that lag is now gone. But, honestly I feel Wayland had more smoother performance with v550, than v555.
  • >For those wanting to build a Wayland-only Linux desktop experience without carrying any aging X11 baggage, GNOME 47 will be able to optionally offer Wayland-only support without carrying X11/X.Org support. This Mutter merge request landed today that allows compiling Mutter with X11 support disabled. That landed today along with this GNOME Shell merge request for being able to disable X11 support too.

    Rival coders must have Europe-based staff to build and test non-WebKit surfing

    Apple limits third-party browser engine work to EU devices

    >The Register has learned from those involved in the browser trade that Apple has limited the development and testing of third-party browser engines to devices physically located in the EU. That requirement adds an additional barrier to anyone planning to develop and support a browser with an alternative engine in the EU.

    >It effectively geofences the development team. Browser-makers whose dev teams are located in the US will only be able to work on simulators. While some testing can be done in a simulator, there's no substitute for testing on device – which means developers will have to work within Apple's prescribed geographical boundary.

    >... as Mozilla put it – to make it "as painful as possible for others to provide competitive alternatives to Safari."

  • Starting with Firefox 127, we're enabling a new anti-tracking feature in Nightly: Bounce Tracking Protection.
  • Source: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2024/05/09/screenshots-these-weeks-in-firefox-issue-160/

    We’re working on a new anti-tracking feature: Bounce Tracking Protection. It works similar to the existing Cookie Purging feature in Firefox, but instead of a tracker list it relies on heuristics to detect bounce trackers.

    It’s based on the navigational-tracking-protections spec draft in the PrivacyCG[1]

    Fedora 41 with Proposal to Adopt DNF5

    >Enhanced Performance: DNF5 promises faster repository metadata processing and improved package query operations, aiming to save users precious seconds during package management tasks.

    > Reduced System Footprint: By eliminating Python dependencies and merging the functionalities of DNF and MicroDNF, DNF5 offers a significantly smaller installation size, reducing metadata redundancy.

    > Unified Experience: Fedora aims to provide a consistent package management experience across all platforms, with DNF5 serving as the sole package manager for servers, workstations, and containers.
