Makes sense. I figured he just had an old machine. I'd happily donate my CPU time if it would speed it up considerably. Probably not worth it to him though, just offering

Edit: Cannot edit/Go Advanced, etc or click on any of the buttons like add link or picture after hitting edit. Coupled with the no preview on the main page, I am going back to 5.0.

Seems to fix itself if I revert back to 5.0.0. Well I'm fine with 5.0.0, waiting for Waterfox 6 beta
Seems to be a problem with 5.0.1!

To be honest I have no idea. Most probably because the website designer optimised it for Webkit browsers, but it seems to run smoothly for me.

I know, Mozilla have made custom builds strange lately. They're not doing what they're supposed to, random errors, it's really annoying.

That said, I would donate my CPU time to compile for you if it would help. I wish I knew more about it, I'd like to do it for myself just for educational purposes.
Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 @ 2GHz
Intel G945M Graphics
4GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB SeaGate that is VERY slow. Takes 3 minutes for my computer to boot up, is the main culprit -.-

I'm not sure. When Firefox officially launches 64-Bit the performance difference between any custom build and it will be almost not noticable, because Mozilla will have switched to compiling with Visual Studio 2010, and will have re-enabled jemalloc. Also 64-Bit builds automatically compile with SSE and SSE2. So I'll probably just stop the project when that happens as Mozilla will have the superior product.

The one that shows you the first few lines of the original post on the current threads and the news posts. It works fine once you go inside a sub-forum and hover, but on the main page it will not show the previews anymore. Not sure if it is a bug with this version or something else related to my rig in particular. Just know it works fine if I go back to 5.0.

Edit: Cannot edit a post now either. The save/Go Advanced/Cancel buttons will not work. Had to go to IE9 to post this.
Problem with 5.0.1, revert back to 5.0

Not really, it's my very slow computer that is the actual problem. It's 5 years old so it does take it's time :|

If you wanted to then you could, and then compiling AVX builds for Sandy Bridge processors and Bulldozer processors would be possible

Reverted back before I saw your post. I was having a problem with NoScript.

It really sounds like you're having to do this on a laptop And laptops don't have great hard drives.

What'd your budget be for a decent compilebox?

Well, I've already got the following components, I started collecting them since 2009 :|

  • Intel Core i7 960
  • Foxconn Flamingblade GTi
  • 4GB DDR3 1600MHz
  • XFX 850W
Problem is I need a GPU (and a HDD but they can be bought anywhere) and for example a 5850 is 250 euro here. I'm REALLY tight on money as well, need to have an operation that will cost a lot and so I'm trying to save every penny. But I also need to build this computer to sell it to buy a laptop because now I'm going to University in September
That's why I keep looking in the For Sale section for a GTX 465 that's around $100-110 so in total it'll only cost $155 to ship here and it'd be the best card I could buy for the money.

Well as far as the hard drive goes you can use your laptop one until you can afford a better one.

You could also look at a regular GTX 460, or an HD 6850/5850 from elsewhere too. They're all approximately similar performance and go for similar prices in the used section.


Also, I've been having problems getting DivX running in the browser. Is there anything you would suggest to do? As it is, I'm having to download whatever I wanted to stream and then watch it in VLC Player, which is not ideal at all.

I wonder how the compile process works. I have a Phenom II hexa with about as much multithreaded power clock-for-clock as a nehalem i7 that could possibly help here(when I get home from a vacation). I also woner if it could be made possible that this be compiled for 64-bit linux (it's an interesting possibility).

Also CCCP + MPC-HC makes for a great combination for playing pretty much anything.

Try reducing your boot time by running ccleaner, system ninja, and defraggler, and reducing your startup programs and services running.
