For Fedora it seems that there is a 'firefox-wayland' package available. What
this does is provide a small shell wrapper which sets an environment variable
- MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 - and then invokes the main firefox program.

I have replaced the standard firefox panel shortcut with the one from the
firefox-wayland package (it looks exactly the same).

This works fine. If I click on the icon 3 or 4 times, then I get 3 or 4 items
appearing in the task manager. If I click on the standard firefox package
shortcut 3 or 4 times then I get 1, maybe 2, items appearing in the task
manager. I then have to use alt-tab to switch between the different browser
