Hello,

I found a bug using FIrefox Nightly on Fedora 23 + Gnome + Wayland. If I use X11 the bug does not reproduce or if I use Wayland but in a non-e10s (single process window) it does not reproduce. Here is the bug

I want to report it to report it in Fedora's Bugzilla since Fedora does wants to fix all Wayland issues until next release. The problem is that I do not run Firefox from Fedora repos, I run the nightly build from Mozilla. I don't think it is wise to report a bug on a non-fedora package. On the other hand Fedora 24 will have Wayland by default and Firefox 46 (the one I am using) will land in F24 by default.

What should I do?

Yes, the bug needs reporting, but I'm not sure where. Your best bet may be to report it to both Mozilla and Fedora (as a bug against Wayland, so that it doesn't get closed too quickly) and add a link in each to the other bug so that the two teams can, at least, be aware of what the other's doing.

Thank you! I will report it also on Fedora. I'm new to the community and I don't want to send spam to people :)
