Yes, I know, but the pb is elsewhere : does automatic update run normally ?

I think a problem of link in "app.update.url", or problem with sourceforge. Because the rest looks correct.
Good luck MrAlex thumb.gif

Edit: your address is "http://waterfoxproj.sourceforge.net" or is "http://waterfoxproject.org"?

absolutely love it, speed is just amazing sonic.gif . in my case WaterFox is way faster then Firefox (64bit i know graduated.gif)
but still high CPU usage while running flash. I'm not having this issue in Google Chrome but disabling plugin-container helped me to cool it down.
great browser. In my case I had to switch between chrome and Firefox because of speed and the way Firefox handles the plug-ins:mad: but now after almost 8H browsing I'm quite happy with it :king:so I went back to leave a reply. again it's amazing browser I love it totally. great work guys thumb.gif

I love how quick waterfox is! One question I had... is in regards to tweaks that work with firefox to speed up loading of sites... do these tweaks also work on waterfox?

I happened to leave Waterfox open last night, on my second profile. The main profile is set for manual updates, and as reported before it still says 9.0 is the latest version if I click to check. The other profile does auto-updates, and this morning the following was on-screen :-

379

Why is this still happening ? Will the updates work correctly in version 10 ?

Like said before, search in this topic on how to setup auto-update.

Hi, MrAlex.
One thing you should really consider is shipping the MSVC runtime. mozconfig can be used or a system var.

export WIN32_REDIST_DIR="/d/redist/x64/Microsoft.VC100.CRT"

Play around with the spaces in that path or just copy the redist folder in a directory without spaces and everything should be fine.

/O2 is equivalent to /Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy which means you can remove -Ob2 -Oy
/favor:blend is on by default so you remove that too

More info here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8f8h5cxt.aspx

Now, PGO will make a big difference that's for sure. But there's a bug in the amd64 compiler which won't allow you to use it. There are some workarounds like using the cross compiler, I can't find the link though.

If you figure this out, please let me know cause I'm interested myself for this.

Thanks, I already use -O2 and specify -favour:blend just in case. Also for the next build I've included the redistributable (I tried using WIN32_REDIST before but it kept on getting ignored, but has worked this time round). I just listed out all the flags in case anyone was curious. I've managed to compile with PGO fine so far, but I'm attemtping to use Intel's compiler so that I can use -O3 (or -fast) and -arch:SSE3 as well as PGO. But for some reason the ICC has problems with linking the libraries and it's bugging me. I've contacted Intel about it and they're still trying to see why. I can imagine a large speed boost with those improvements.

Well, there is no just in case; the default switches are the default ones tongue.gif Just saying, they are just useless.

As for ICL, I wouldn't suggest using it for Firefox yet. /O3 is a lot of times buggy so it needs a lot of testing. Also, you better use /Qax which shouldn't limit the CPUs the final executable can run on but should be faster on those CPUs which support that specific SIMD. Plus you can specify various /Qax and the compiler should generate a different codebase for each one. /Qipo is a neat option but compilation might fail since it has a couple of bugs even with 12.1.2.079. You might be interested in this.

Just keep using MSVC 2010 for the main build and play around with ICL. I have also started playing with ICL and Firefox, but there are so many problems. Next week or so Intel will release a new update for their compiler which should have a couple important fixes.

PS. Feel free to contact me, I have "some" experience with this stuff and I already build Firefox myself so two people should be better than one smile.gif

Fair enough but I'm always paranoid that some things won't happen unless I specifically imply them, such as I always check if I've typed a command correct letter by letter tongue.gif and I'm very wary about using /Qax because it provides no benefit at all to AMD users. Although the AMD base is small I'd still like to cater for them. The next build will probably be MSVC unless the ICC works, and works better. After all the main point is to get the most performance possible biggrin.gif And I've looked at many different ways of compiling Firefox with ICC but still get the same LNK errors.

 

And I definitely won't hesitate to contact you, thank you. Might contact you in this thread just in case people are interested to know what's going on smile.gif

I'm not the only one that does it tongue.gif:
