Sorry. In that case I can not offer any help. I don't see what your problem is.

Months? Really?

I seem to remember it being started just several weeks ago. And my original question was if it would continue.

But thanks for the input.

Is it me or is Webrender really functioning very well in the latest build? (The scrolling is smooth and the font rendering seems fixed)

Holy crap! You're right. This is night and day. Reddit pages scroll like crap and certain pages still have chromatic fonts, but this is different.

To be fair, reddit pages scroll like crap for me anyway with it disabled

Excuse me. A couple questions?

Is Webrender enabled in Nightly by default?
If yes how can it be confirmed?
If not what enables it?

Thanks.

No, it is not enabled by default.

To enable it, set gfx.webrender.enabled and gfx.webrender.blob-images to true.
If you're on Linux, set layers.acceleration.force-enabled to true and I highly recommend creating the boolean preference layers.gpu-process.enabled and setting it to true as well. Note that if extensions.webextensions.remote is set to true, WebRender will not work on Linux.

Thank you. My bad. I should have mentioned a Win Os.
