@jpenala do you still have issues in KDE with this build? Thanks!

User Icon jpenala commented & provided feedback 9 months ago

@adamwill Yes the lag and stutter is still present in this build, latest KDE Plasma + Wayland.

And as previously mentioned, setting

widget.wayland_vsync.enabled = false

fixes the stutter.

I also checked what the default value was in FF85, since it does not have similar Wayland issues, and the value defaults to false. In FF86 the default is true. And at least in my system keeping it false in FF86 doesn't seem to have any negative effects.

@jpenala OK, thanks for testing. I think we'll have to push this in anyway, but can you please file a bug for it with details, so @stransky can see if we can do anything about it? Thanks!

This update has been pushed to stable.

@adamwill

The performance problems I have, will probably be resolved when FF88 is released. At least with the current Firefox Nightly (88), Wayland performance with default settings is butter smooth.
