Disabling GPU process fixes stuttering on external display on dual-GPU Optimus laptop

My configuration is the following: Windows 11, internal display connected to iGPU and external UHD display to nvidia-HDMI port, multiple firefox windows are opened (1 one the internal screen, 2 on the external).

Then in Windows->Settings->GPU I can select firefox to run on either iGPU (powersaving) or on Nvidia GPU (max perf), the problem is the following: Whenever I set firefox running on iGPU, there would be a massive stuttering/framedrop on an external display (connected to NVIDIA), while a perfectly smooth browsing on internal display, and vice versa.

My first attempt was to disable webrenderer compositor or switching it to a software rendering, which fixes the heavy stuttering, but the scrolling becomes overall less fluid/responsive.

However, setting "layers.gpu-process.enabled" to "false" seemingly solves this problem completely. Now I have a perfectly smooth scrolling on both displays, regardless of which GPU is used in Windows->Settings->GPU (nvidia's is arguably a little but more responsive).

Hope this helps someone, or maybe dev team could look deeper into this.

Thank you for the great browser!

I am in need to develop Visual Studio Desktop Application for Windows, and open 1 website in InPrivate or incognito mode, that is achieve for Edge and Chrome browser and able to hide "Browser is under remote control", but can't able to figure out parameter or settings to do that for Firefox browser.

I am using Firefox 128.0 (64-bit) and Selenium WebDriver 4.22.0, Selenium.WebDriver.GeckoDriver 0.34.0.

I opened https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/issues/2186, and thought that, maybe there is any settings of Mozilla Firefox (about:profile), so ask here also.

Need your expert advice.

Regards,

Kamal Kiri

Firefox screenshot feature: How to prevent clicking from affecting page content when taking screenshots?

Hi there,

I've noticed that since a certain update (1 - 2 months ago?), when using the Firefox screenshot feature (that is, using Shift + Command/Ctrl + S), clicking on webpage still has effect on the webpage itself: After pressing Shift + Command/Ctrl + S, so that the browser enters screenshot mode, I have to click on a certain area in order to orient the screenshot camera, then click somewhere again, in order to click the "Copy" or "Download" button when the screenshot is ready. If I remember right, these two click actions wouldn't influence the webpage itself at all in older versions of Firefox, because in the screenshot mode the interaction between webpage and mouse clicks was "blocked". However, this is not the case anymore. That means, the webpage could no more look like how it looked like at the moment I wanted to take the screenshot, due to the unblocked mouse click. Even though for most static pages it's not a big deal, for many dynamic pages like online games this is absolutely annoying. Any workaround?

Firefox Android: Youtube can't play full screen in landscape mode

Dear friends,

My mobile phone is OnePlus 8 Pro. ColorOS 13.0/Android 13. Firefox ver 111.1.1.

I like playing YouTube video in floating windows over other apps as shown in 1st pic. Therefore I can open other app on phone while still watching video.

Here is my trick: Step 1: access m.youtube.com in browser then play a video. Step 2: Tap the full screen button (the square in bottom-right corner of the video screen ). The video screen enlarges and rotates from portrait to landscape full screen mode. Step 3: Use 3-button navigation. tap 'Home' button then mobile phone go to home page with the YouTube video displaying in a small window over other apps. The browser could be firefox or chrome. Both works fine for me for years. I prefer firefox.

However since last week, I can't play this trick in firefox. Chrome still works fine.

In firefox, the weird thing happened in step 2: after tapping the full screen button, the video displayed in portrait mode. It didn't rotate to landscape full screen mode. Please refer to pic 2.

Anyone has idea how to fix this? Many many thanks!

Hi, I discovered that in order to achieve that, you set in about:config "permissions.fullscreen.allowed from the default false to true. The default behavior does not stop the video with a single left mouse click, but triggers full-screen. It would make sense to make "true" the default as it seems more intuitive to control both the play and full-screen in that way.

Add a deep link shortcut to my Android home screen when "Add to home screen" menu item is missing

I want to add a shortcut to my Android home screen which deep links to a page within a site I use. However, the "Add to home screen" menu item I'm accustomed to using for this is missing.

It turns out that if the website in question is configured to be used as a "progressive web app", then "Add to home screen" is replaced by an "Install" menu item. For my situation, this is unhelpful, because the resulting home screen icon only links to the website's home page, not to the carefully selected URL that I want to deep link to.

SOLUTION

This can be worked around by turning on airplane mode first, then visiting the desired URL. The page, obviously, will not be found, but this causes the "Add to home screen" item to be reinstated. Use it, then turn off airplane mode again. Voilà!
