Not having any particular issues with my 9.0-RC1 system running firefox-71 apart from the key management UI issue. I've not disabled anything when building. I do see display glitching occasionally that sort of look like a cache coherency issue but it is transient and doesn't impact stability.

firefox depends on 3D these days so GPU might matter. I'm running on i915drmkms as of last Saturday.

[ 40930.944] (--) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

There is a way to disable 3d in firefox but I can't remember what that is. Will see if I can hook up sound and do a test of that later.
