Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 173

post #1721 of 7225
I found that half of the plugins I have installed under firefox 10 aren't found by waterfox (Includes Microsoft media player) Is there a reason. I have all the 64bit versions installed but still not working.

It's slower and more unstable (certain bugs still not fixed - like those related to animated gifs) than Firefox Nightly 13.0a1 64 bit: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-13.0a1.en-US.win64-x86_64.installer.exe - wile the so called stable/final FF build is pure crap compared to this ones... so much irony in this... a nightly build which is suppose to be more unstable being the most stable build at this moment and also the fastest.

"Waterfox was compiled with SSE, SSE2, x64 favoring and the following optimisation flags: /Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy"

SSE & SSE2 should inherently be used by the x64 compiler. In fact, you cannot select SSE or SSE2 as specific optimizations on any platform but x86, so it's a bag of hot air to even mention http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/7t5yh4fd.aspx

x64 favoring - checking the build flags showed me -favor:blend which is the default setting; it only allows you to favor a specific architecture (Intel or AMD), where "blend" means no favoring. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms173505.aspx

/Og /Oi /Ot /Oy /Ob2 /Gs /GF /Gy equals /O2 (optimize for speed), it's just written out in what /O2 stands for in the compiler. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8f8h5cxt.aspx

If Firefox Nightly 13.0a1 64 bit is so fast, I wonder what settings are being used to make it so fast. I might download it and give it a try and see how it works with my extensions and plug-ins. I love my Waterfox though! What if Firefox Nightly 13.0a1 64 bit was optimized like Waterfox, that would be interesting.

What is that exactly? Are RSS feeds not working?

How is it unstable? And it will be faster because it most likely has upgraded component such as an improved JS library.

That's amazing. I know that but other people don't. People kept on asking if it was compiled with SSE2, so saying it helps answer their question. And I listed out every flag so everyone knows what is being used. And if you read the UPDATED FAQ:

Yes, Waterfox was compiled with SSE2, the AMD Core Math Library and the following optimisation flags: /O2 /GS- /GA

 

Would taking a minute to think and look around be that difficult for you? doh.gif

It didn't even occur to me that Firefox Nightly 13.0a1 64 bit would be using a different JS library. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure my add-ons would work with an alpha version with-out at least a compatibility tweak. I'll stick with my favorite Waterfox! thumb.gif

After watching your build, jemalloc is enable or no?

Otherwise apart from the improvement Math for AMD, this build is a simple compilation x64?

Good job thumb.gif

Yes, jemalloc is enabled.
