Details

We should consider to enable Wayland on nightly and qualified systems (recent Gtk + gnome-shell/mutter compositor). It also needs some remaining bugs fixed.

I think this should block on bug 1508803, which makes Firefox unusable for normal browsing. Switching to the window and clicking on links doesn't work because of it.

normal browsing. Switching to the window and clicking on links doesn't work
because of it.

When you set nightly as a default browser (and the nightly is wayland enabled) the bug 1508803 is automatically fixed for you.

This seems like it should depend on bug 1478283, but I'm not sure if the KDE userbase is large enough to warrant a block on all platforms. Thoughts?

It can be enabled on mutter (gnome) only.

Main blocker here is flash which does not work under Wayland.

Is Flash not working under anything really a blocking problem? Its set to be officially deprecated in 2020 and Adobe and many others have already pushed for removal of it.

I'm honestly curious. If there is something i'm not considering.

I don't want to regress any major functionality that X11 Firefox version provides, that will cause lot of confusion among users.
