doing a fresh install of manjaro with the 21.04 manjaro minimal image and I’m setting up a sway environment. I’ve completely forgot what to tweak to improve firefox performance and googling around I found this thread from on the forum: Firefox WebRender
so I decide to go with
gfx.webrender.enabled as well as setting the env variable
export PAN_MESA_DEBUG=gl3. This indeed does result in great performance with the Chalkboard HTML5 Benchmark, but other than that the browser runs poorly and causes pages to glitch out – for example,
about:support will not display properly, constantly blinking in and out as I scroll the page, with this issue repeating itself on other pages. Additionally, another website I like to use as a makeshift benchmark, fallingfalling, runs poorly as well. I can get the browser in working order if I change in
true but then the html5 benchmark scores poorly.
Am I overlooking something that’s keeping me from using WebRender in firefox and having the browser function properly? Thanks for any help and suggestions.
