Additional comments about closing:  user comment: Sorry about this, I just messed up too much with the about:config webrender values, so it's not a real bug, just the result of me messing up too bad with the about:config on an old iGPU :(.

It also crashes sometimes, both launching it from the desktop normally or from the CLI.
Tested the same Firefox on another Arch PC with a much more modern iGPU and under Plasma Wayland Session too, it works fine, so probably it's some Firefox's bug related with GUI rendering on old GPUs :(.
