Description

Description: The libre web browser based on Mozilla Firefox. With Wayland patches from gecko-dev.
License: MPL GPL LGPL (same as standard Iceweasel package)
AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/firefox-wayland-git/
PKGBUILD: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/plain/PKGBUILD?h=firefox-wayland-git
gecko-dev source: https://github.com/stransky/gecko-dev

Mozilla are currently working towards porting Firefox to Wayland: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=635134. The main issue with porting is Gecko but a lot of progress has been made and it is now possible to run Firefox without using xwayland. Though this requires using the developer version of Gecko.

The AUR package ( https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/firefox-wayland-git/ ) does build but it would need the Mozilla branding replaced with the Debian Iceweasel branding. Plus non-free services like Pocket would need removing.

Assigned oaken-source as discussed on IRC.
