You can force incompatible add-ons to work wink.gif Sometimes they work just fine:

I Admit, when i first installed i was disappointed it had the crap text quality that all other FF4 buillds have on my rig:(
Luckily however, i found out that disabling direct2d in about:config fixes it.

I used FF back in the 1.5 days. I'm trying to switch back, but its hard getting over the mental thing, just so used to chrome now. one of the main reasons for my switch to chrome was UI, and I'm happy to say FF4 has officially beat both chrome and opera IMHO(with a little tweaking tongue.gif).

Only problem is no 64-bit silverlight, so no netflix frown.gif oh well, I'll use chrome for netflix and Waterfox for everything else.

Mozilla's nightly builds are not new, those are extremely unstable and has lots of bugs.

You should be informed about what you compile… rolleyes.gif

It's two of the reasons why there are no offical stable win64 builds of Firefox yet.

Considering that the nightlies released during the tree freeze for the weeks before Fx 4's release are the exact same code and are just as stable as the official Fx 4 release, I would say that my point still stands that there were official 64-bit Firefox 4 builds.

Some of them are a hell of a lot more stable than Waterfox.

All you said was PGO and jemalloc, you didn't even ask a question or anything. I used the -O2 compiler flag. I can't compile with jemalloc because I compile with VC 2010 and jemalloc is only supported up to VC 2008 frown.gifhttps://developer.mozilla.org/en/Windows_Build_Prerequisites

If you don't like it then get lost. I have yet to hear anything from anyone about stability issues in Waterfox.

IMO, the 5 beta seems lighter and quicker. You so rock.

I'm going to assume that you know very little about Firefox's development process (and the software development process in general).

Most notably, an official 64-bit version is planned (you can grab 5.0a1 64-bit windows off of their servers).

Firefox 5 fixes a few UI issues that 4 didn't quite do right, makes things more intuitive, and essentially tries to draw in those who decided to stick with Fx 3.x.
It is also going to bring a new account manager (due to the current one being pretty lacking, especially if you have multiple accounts for the same website, etc.)

The reason for the switch is because it took Firefox 4 almost a YEAR to be released. The issue with this is that it took that much longer for users to have all of the new things that they created over that time such as:
-new tab data structure for faster tab switching
-new javascript rendering engine
-new HTML rendering engine
-new UI
-new database structure for storing user profile information
-etc.
Do you see how these features could have easily been split into two or three separate firefox releases?

I like the old system, I don't care for the new system. I'm aware that they would use this new naming scheme for 1-2 significant changes per number increment versus the old 5-6 big improvements going from 3 to 4. Not uninformed. That's why they should just do 4.X increments like they had with 3.5 and 3.6 etc. It looks like a desperate attempt to mirror Chrome.

I asked for the changes in FF5, not for your poorly constructed opinion on me. Get off your high horse and stop assuming things of other people based on absolutely nothing. Wrongly judging others FTW.

Thanks a lot!

And by the way, I had no idea there was a 64-bit Flash plugin!

Very surprising that Microsoft hasn't built a 64-bit Silverlight since they have been building a 64-bit IE for half a decade. Any news on a 64-bit Silverlight?
