Red Hat Makes Progress On Firefox Native For Wayland

Filed under
Red Hat
Moz/FF

Besides LibreOffice running natively on Wayland, progress has been made this week on running Mozilla's Firefox web-browser natively on Wayland.

Red Hat developers have been working on getting Firefox native to Wayland with their ambitions to switch Firefox Workstation over to Wayland by default rather than an X.Org Server. This Firefox Wayland work is in-step with the GTK3 version of Firefox.

This is good news for Fedora users running the latest Wayland stack. Details on Firefox native for Wayland can be found via this Google+ post by Red Hat's Jiří Eischmann.

  • Display and control your music on Fedora Workstation

    Many Fedora users listen to music through their laptops and desktops. In fact Fedora offers a wide range of media players, such as Rhythmbox, Banshee, and GNOME Music. Some of these players, like GNOME Music, provide notifications that appear when a track changes, but these notifications are easy to miss, and they don’t provide any control over the playing music.

    This is where the Media Player Indicator extension (which can be installed directly via the GNOME Extenstions website) can be an excellent addition if you listen to music on your Fedora Workstation. By default, the Media Player Indicator extension places an additional widget in the system status menu. This widget adds Artist, Trackname, and Album information, as well as Album artwork, and controls for stopping, starting, and skipping tracks.
