Calm down and it's better to provide valuable feedback (i.e. logs, benchmarks, etc.). . This is free software, no one is your payroll.
I am calm. :) I am only just observing and commenting on my observations.

Re: Solus's default (modified) version of Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) is crippled.

Hello, You're right, the shipped Firefox on Solus is abnormally slow. This being said, instead of complaining on multiple forums and social medias, especially when what you say is wrong , Solus hasn't made modifications many modifications (source is available here with version history), simply repo...

Re: Solus's default (modified) version of Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) is crippled.

As this issue only seem to impact Solus Linux's native packages, I have already resolved my issue by abandoning Solus's package and using Mozilla's untouched package found on their site. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/

Re: Solus's default (modified) version of Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) is crippled.

To clarify, I am talking about the one which comes pre-installed with Solus (not directly from Mozilla Firefox's website). It is only Solus's modified version which is preinstalled and updated through their package manager, which seems to be the problem.

Solus's default (modified) version of Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) is crippled.

I am a big fan of Mozilla's new Firefox Quantum (Firefox 57) and was surprised to discover that in Solus Linux, it is super slow and not nearly as responsive as it is in Debian, openSUSE, Arch Linux, or even Microsoft Windows. Indeed, Solus has made so many modifications that you cannot even change ...

Re: Non-free media codecs (beyond VLC)

Sorry if I am confused or if I confused you :? You'll find it in the Software Center (Third party tab), but indeed there are no codecs their atm. If you want anything to be added to a repository, you have to make a request (I don't know how else I could explain it... it is not like ArchLinux where ...

Re: Non-free media codecs (beyond VLC)

I found this for Opera: https://dev.solus-project.com/T3421 Parole Media Player is not in the repository as far as I know. You may do a request if you want it to be added to the repo. For the codecs, if they are non-free, they should go in the 3rd party repository. But I can't tell more. Someone fr...

Re: Non-free media codecs (beyond VLC)

Firefox uses ffmpeg for playing audio and video in html5. FFmpeg is build (among other things) with h.264 & h.265 support. Also in FF, you have to enable DRM support via Preference -> Content -> Enable DRM content. To be honest, I don't use much streaming services on my computer so I am certainly n...

Re: Non-free media codecs (beyond VLC)

Alright, so I cannot use Solus for gaming or online streaming. Not exactly a dealbreaker, but not exactly what I need or wanted to hear either. This will limit my usage for work only and not as my primary desktop. Thank you for your fast reply and your honesty. :) Solus is the Linux distro that off...
