IIRC, for GNOME, Wayland is the default and firefox-wayland is the
default. You can install and run firefox-x11 even when running Wayland,
but someone else might be able to say whether the reverse is true. For
other desktops, firefox-x11 is the default and if running Wayland, you
can install firefox-wayland.
As I've been using it, firefox-wayland appears to have a pretty severe
memory leak, at least when many tabs are open--eventually, it starts to
spill into swap space. Restarting Firefox mostly clears the problem,
for a while. I haven't tested much with firefox-x11, though. Also, when
I first started running F31, firefox-wayland used a bunch of processor
even when I wasn't doing anything. That seems to have settled down,
though. Not sure if it's just some tab I closed or what, but that was a
behavior change from the version in F30.
I am confused
