    I use TMP for this and since TMP may not be ready for FF57 I'm very happy to hear it can be enabled directly :thumb:

    Here's the newest post on the Nightly blog with many bug fixes, enhancements and added APIs. Unfortunately also with some problems regarding Photon :
    In my understanding this seems to be only related to Photon and not to the performance improvements from the Quantum project (with Servo, Stylo etc.).

    BS omg Mr Brinkmann
    this is what i wrote more than once to regular users - dont stick with features which are gone in final - or always stick with the nightly but get prepped it could get worse. and now this ghacks dork recommends to do this way.

    That will be gone for sure in the final version. If you need legacy extensions to work, remain on ESR.
