How to enable support for Firefox

Plucky’s support for Firefox is not as good as it is for Chromium-based browsers such as Brave , Chrome , Edge , and Vivaldi .

To enable Firefox support on Windows and macOS, invoke: pluck + okfirefox and pluck repair, and then restart Firefox after the delay has elapsed.

On most Linux distributions, Plucky should support Firefox out of the box, unless Firefox is a snap in which case take a look at the Linux notes for information on getting a real browser.

Will Firefox support be revived?

Whether Plucky will improve support for Firefox in the long haul is yet to be determined. Mozilla’s current policies make doing so time consuming, most people use browsers other than Firefox, and Plucky’s resources are too scant to spend on a non-essential project such as supporting Firefox while alternative and easier-to-deploy-to browsers exist.

The author himself used Firefox for many years, but finally switched to Brave because it took so very long to address issues in Firefox. He misses the awesome bar but is otherwise happy with using Brave, and he is even happier he has fewer Plucky bugs to investigate.
