Firefox managed to bring HDR to Macs in 100.0 version. Now it's time for Windows!

It'd be awesome to watch and work on HDR images and videos using Firefox in 2022. Windows is the most popular OS, why not bring HDR here too?
More monitors and devices running on Windows support HDR, so there is an increase in demand of HDR support in Firefox.

The only option for Windows users is either to switch to another browser or to download and use a dedicated app from Microsoft Store.

Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

What an utterly useless response, Jon. I had to make an account just to call you out.

Seriously, when is Firefox going to get proper HDR support? I don't want to use Chrome just to watch YouTube! Get with the times, guys!

@Psythik every new idea post in Mozilla Connect gets a similar response/status update, so everything starts with equal footing...but appreciate the call out and you following up on this. I've shared it with our product team again, so hopefully we can provide an update here shortly.

HDR Support

Please bring HDR support to Mozilla for PC, Mac, and Linux. If all the other major browsers can implement it so can we! I know you can do it! Go Go Go!

It is ridiculous that this feature ist still missing on Windows.

Please bring it to Firefox for Windows! It's a pain switching to Edge for HDR videos 😞

Another vote for HDR support

almost 2023 and still no HDR.

any updates on that?

New member

I agree. I love firefox, but so annoying when watching youtube. Some videos get me thinking "hmm maybe this has hdr", then I have to open edge to open the same video. Just to see if it is hdr, and if not I close edge again. I really dont want to use edge, please fix this!

It's sad that entered 2023 and still no HDR support

@Jonany new status regards the request ?

New member

sad that I have to use edge or chrome to watch HDR video. The look much better wheb available. Firefox is still my favorite browser exept to watch video

Please do add HDR support to all operating systems ASAP! This is rapidly becoming the standard for modern digital media and the lack of HDR support is the main thing that would force me long term to switch to a chromium based alternative as my daily driver despite really wanting to avoid google-controlled web browsers. YouTube is also actively working on improving HDR and once that's implemented the majority of web content going forward will be optimized for HDR screens, which will only exasperate the issue.

2023 Mozilla. You're getting close to a decade behind the times.

Making moves
