Re: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ lockups

"Certain circumstances" is the key. We need to find out what they are. This is the main reason it takes so long to find this stuff - narrowing down the specific circumstances that cause the issue. The 3B+ uses a different ethernet chip which has a different driver (smsc95xx vs lan78xx), so really v...

And no, I don't recommend starting with Stretch light. The full VLC package depends on a lot of GUI stuff.

And there is no "mouse acceleration bug". Some wireless Mouse/keyboard combos don't work well with the default settings, but this can easily be solved with a command line switch.

Re: stretch still slower than jessie? what?

Firefox never used HW acceleration for video on the RPi. This is not a problem of Stretch. On Jessie, youtube is also unusable with Firefox. Use Chromium. Webkit based browsers (no HW acceleration) also work, as long as you stay with 360p.
omxplayer and kodi are not "slower" on Stretch.
