Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 26

post #251 of 7225
Does this 64bit version improve performance on newer systems as well?

I'm really a tab freak, creating sessions of over 50 tabs at once. Will i have any gains using this version?

So let me get this right. The Mozilla team release the 64bit as source code, and others just have to compile this?

about to download 4.1
Glad to hear it

Same happens with your program. I thought Waterfox would fix it, but I guess not.

I would love to try it out, but I'm using Linux.
Ah bummer, haven't got a clue what could be wrong

Mozilla releases the source code (it is not 32-bit or 64-bit specific) and Windows is the only version which hasn't received a 64-Bit variant directly from Mozilla. It is 64-Bit because I used a 64-Bit compiler. The way you compile is important.

And you could possibly notice an improvement. Try it and see if it does or doesn't

Ok got it. BTW i dont have much RAM (only 4GB) and i hear it uses even more RAM so that could be a problem... Also is there any portable version of this? I try to keep installations to a minimum. Prefer portables nowadays

Firefox is set up to use a certain % of your RAM, generally 4GiB will tend to be consumed at around ~200MiB, but the more tabs you use of course the higher the RAM usage. Some people have had 50+ Tabs open and only had around ~1GiB taken up.

And sorry no not yet unfortunately there hasn't really been any demand for a portable version.

Don't worry. It's not your fault.
It's rather weird though. 3.6 works rather fine.
But I try 4.0 and nothing works.

Hurry up and make a version for Ubuntu

Linux already has a 64-Bit version ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/re.../linux-x86_64/

I'll give it a look thanks

I wonder which particular compiler did you use
There used to be compilers that are Intel-optimized but basically "AMD-sabotaged", they were removed upon request by Intel in a lawsuit. I don't think any such performance loss is happening on my system, but I just thought I'd tell you about it

Yes, I had that problem too. Some nightly builds would run..some wouldn't, was a huge mess, but that's the problem with nightly builds and a risk you have to take unfortunately to get the bleeding edge. And thank you
What? But FF 4 just got out of beta right?

Any idea if it'll be 64-bit?

Um... this is for Windows so you'd have to use WINE to open it.
Strange problem though have you tried doing a system update? I haven't used MINT but I'd assume it updates the same
