I’ve recently just decided to go ahead and install Asahi again (after a while) and after some testing I’ve came to a conclusion that “Firefox was crashing all the time” still.
As you can see in one of the four videos, I tried to play a heavier web-based game using Firefox, and it crashed immediately after I pressed the button that allowed me to join a game. Using Brave, the game will load but all those magenta squares will start popping up, along with a bunch of flashing, which was painfully annoying to look at for more than about five seconds. Some websites, such as the flight tracking one I was on (flightaware.com) was perfectly smooth on Firefox when moving around the map, but on Brave, moving around the live map was extremely choppy, and overall a horrible experience. Last time I installed Asahi, (ALARM) Both browsers would actually crash when moving around the flight map. Luckily this doesn’t happen anymore, but still isn’t 100% perfect from what I’ve mentioned above. I’ve seen issues like this before happen to other people, such as the Google Sheets scrolling blurriness, along with the Google maps issue.
2020 MBA M1 (base model. apparently similar issues were caused by people having the 8gb machines, much like me, and developers couldn’t notice anything with their 16gb machines)
OS: Fedora Asahi Remix 38 KDE Plasma (First option in installer)
HOW TO REPRODUCE:
Load some heavier games through Firefox. (or even Brave and Chromium equivalents) The game I was testing with is called Mini Royale: https://miniroyale.io/
The browser might crash after a couple of seconds, or minutes. Sometimes, the entire Desktop Environment and Window Manager will crash.
From my testing, it was really only web games that had the magenta squares issue, not regular websites.
