Here’s the two year old issue that’s rather close to getting fixed! https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1429522

    The article is from September. The fixes are already in Firefox Beta (currently 70) and which will graduate to Firefox 70 release next week on the 22nd of October.

      It may have been from a while ago, but this encourages me to try it again. I tried to make the complete switch (including bookmarks, extensions, etc.) on all devices (Window, Linux, and Mac) earlier and wasn’t able to make it. I was running a non-default resolution on my rMBP 13” and it would just drain the battery. I’m hoping this test drive goes better!

      1. 5

        Hooray. All I way trying to say is: No need to go and try Nightly. Check out Firefox 70 in Beta or wait until we release it next week :)

    2. 6

      The Nightly version of Firefox, so-called because it is updated every night, is a testing and development release of the browser that sits between the Developer Edition and the public release.

      Wrong in the first sentence. The nightly channel doesn’t sit between anything: it’s the most frequently-updated release channel. Beta and Developer Edition both sit between Nightly and Stable.

      I don’t want to come across as too nitpicky, but it is kind of annoying that they get this kind of thing wrong. It’s not like it’s a secret.

      1. 3

        FWIW I’ve tried switching to Firefox before and it didn’t stick, but the v70 Beta has held up for a couple weeks now. Worth a try!
