Try installing qutebrowser-qtwebengine. It shouldn't even try QtWebkit. That's deprecated. qtwebengine is basically Chromium.

I had not realized that there were more than two options to select once I received the initial error. In portrait mode, I only see the option to "Quit" or "Force QtWebKit backend" but when I switched to landscape it actually offers four options. I selected the "Turn off WebGL" and not the browser opened. Now I will just have to learn the keyboard shortcuts.

Thank you for your help!

Has anyone managed to install any Firefox plugins on their Pinephone?

I'm trying to install uMatrix, but when I click "Add to Firefox" on addons.mozilla.org, the only thing that happens is that the button changes to a small dot. If I hold the button and open the link in a new tab, I get "Firefox prevented this site from asking you to install software on your computer." Well thank you Firefox, but I would kinda like to install that software?

You could try downloading the plugin on a desktop PC and install it manually on the phone.

Yep, I'm sure it's solvable given enough effort, I'm just curious about other people's experience.

I have installed ublock origin and bitwarden without much effort, but their popups render very badly, making them hardly usable.

Ok, thanks for the feedback. I wonder why it doesn't work for me...

BTW, uBlock Origin, wasn't that installed by default on your Mobian Firefox?

After a system upgrade today this is now fixed! Yay! Big Grin
