FireDragon Librewolf fork 🐉

No need to download seperately, its available on Chaotic-AUR, package name firedragon. So you just do a sudo pacman -Syu firedragon :slight_smile:
That also means we get daily builds :smiley:

I think you have to remove previously installed Librewolf / Firefox and clear remaining data...

For KDE its easily done:

It doesnt collide with Firefox/Librefox installations, instead it uses its own folder :thinking:

I use gnome.

Gnome 40 to be exact haven't run into any bugs yet except that sweet theme isn't gtk4 compatible. Anybody have A fix?

Has anyone done any testing in terms of performance? Dragonwolf vs regular Firefox? Also, I'm a bit confused about the name. Is it firedragon or dragonwolf? Can't find package in chaotic called firedragon but dragonwolf is there.

sudo pacman -Syu firedragon

Installed firedragon. I like it !!

But I have a few suggestions. Use duckduckgo as default search engine ( ddg bang is the greatest invention since the Wheel ) :grin: . Secondly, add cookie autodelete extension. Both easy to do even if they aren't there to begin with ( as I just did ).

Need to test the performance still.

Hi @dr460nf1r3 ,

How can I add your FireDragon settings?
Where is the target directory and how to apply it after git clone?
Cheers! :slight_smile:

Thats actually a nice idea. For the cookie deletion though, I would have no use of it as I use the internal cookie whitelist, everything else is not kept anyway :slight_smile:
Let me know how the performance monitoring went!

Are you trying to install the browser? Just do that via pacman :smiley:
