Details

Currently, the only way to figure out whether Firefox runs with Wayland or X11 enabled is to check, in about:support, whether WebGL uses GLX or EGL, which is not great.

Since a few days, there is a new entry named "Window Protocol" in the Graphics section (listed under Features) which says "x11" when running under XWayland and "wayland" when running as a Wayland client. Maybe someone from the Graphics people can comment on this because this bug seems to be fixed.
