Bug Description

The Ubuntu universe has a big Wayland problem!

What does that mean?

So a lot of packages in the Universe repository are not compiled with Wayland support which is really bad and would lead to bad performance after 21.04 comes out.

Here are the following packages that I detected with wrong compilation:

telegram-desktop (Wayland support work with snap version)
kiwix
firefox (everything works fine with this env variable set:"MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1")
