Hey, after using chrome for a couple of years, i decided to give Firefox a go and while it has been really snappy so far, there's an issue where scrolling and all animations run at ~80fps tops on my 144hz 1440p monitor. Due to a mismatch in frame time, no animation looks smooth at this frame rate on my display unfortunately. This behavior is exaggerated when running firefox maximized, as the frame rate is noticeably higher when running on a smaller window.
I've had a similar issue in the past on an older Nvidia GPU, where the driver wasn't upping the GPU clock automatically on firefox, so i decided to force max clocks on the GPU yet i didn't notice a performane difference this time. I've also tried running running firefox in troubleshooting mode and have tried firefox nightly with no extensions, to no avail in both cases. Hardware acceleration is enabled on my system and nothing on about:support would indicate it's opting for software rendering instead, so I'm unsure as to how to go on troubleshooting this issue.
The GPU is a Geforce 1660 Super on a Ryzen 5 3600 powered system, so i guess it should be able to do smooth hardware acceleration as it (mostly) does on chrome and electron powered apps.
