Description Michelangelo Scopelliti 2017-05-03 09:44:46 UTC
Since version 53.0 I'm not able to find gtk2 in IUSE. Yet, mozconfig-v6.53.eclass seems to be able to handle the gtk2 case.

Is gtk2 planned to disappear from firefox?

Comment 1 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2017-05-03 12:06:17 UTC
I've tried to re-introduce the gtk2 version (requires a small patch) but unfortunately ff-53 segfaults with gtk2.
Comment 2 Michelangelo Scopelliti 2017-06-15 14:23:19 UTC
any news on this? The segfault is still there with 54.0?
Comment 3 Ian Stakenvicius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-06-15 14:28:19 UTC
The "cairo-gtk2" toolkit is no longer supported by firefox starting with 53.0, and the code has changed upstream enough that functionality cannot be restored.

So yes, after 52.x, gtk2 support is gone.

It's a pity. I don't like the look and feel of gtk3/adwaita, and I was hoping some workaround "à la alsa" was possible; there is still a gtk2 folder in the binary distribution.

Anyway, thank you for looking into this.

You can use themes other than adwaita to adjust the look+feel.  Also, the gtk2 code that exists is there because of nsplugin support (which still exists for flash) hasn't been totally dropped.
