Firestorm allows for Pitch and Yaw movement. If it is Roll you're looking for (as shown by Chalice above) then no.

WTF is wrong with this thing lately, last few months miserable to load content in world. Fastest solution is to turn off transparent water and get yourself some old school graphix. Bonus, your frames shoot from 2 seconds per, to about 100 FPS.

1070GTX if it matters.

Trying Catznip right now and I might be able to tame its quirks, but I'd kind of like the FS random tools back. Being able to move is winning the battle right now, though.

Noticed that too but blamed LL on renting from ACS. Is it only on FS?

Catznip is smooth like butter with everything turned up high. Not testing any further with other viewers just yet.

I haven't seen any recent drop in performance with Firestorm. I don't get 100 FPS anywhere but my computer is from 2012 with a gtx1070. Haven't been able to get an rtx because bloody Etherium miners. Typically 20 FPS in built up areas but that's been normal, went down to the water to check if transparent water was a problem but FPS went up to 70 in a water sim.

Oh, I'm running Firestorm on Windows, because my Mac Pro is even older and has a shittier video card (UserBenchmark says the gtx1070 is 163% faster than the HD7950). It could be a Mac driver thing that Firestorm is tickling. I didn't think Apple even supported nVidia drivers any more.

Seems to be smoother but for some reason max FPS in skyboxes or empty regions actually went down by about 1/3.

Also rendering seems to have changed, atmospheric effects are much more pronounced and things seem faded when I turn them off.

I don't know what they did, but I got a huge boost in fps on Linux with the same settings.
