Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 348

post #3471 of 7360
The big news for FF 15 seems to be better memory management for add-ons. Anything that improves the way FF manages memory is a welcome and worthy update.

Most important changes for average users:

Optimized memory usage for add-ons
Preliminary native PDF support
Support for SPDY networking protocol v3
WebGL enhancements, including compressed textures for better performance

I look forward to WF 15 with these enhanced features.

A couple of features new to the Mozilla browser are included, but not enabled. "Click-to-play" is a built in feature that prevents the automatic running of scripts that require a plugin. "In-content Preferences" displays browser preferences in it's own window, much like Chrome does, rather than a little tabbed preference box. Neither has anything to do with browser performance, and both have to be enabled via the about:config page.

To enable click-to-play:
about:config, filter for "plugins.click_to_play", double-click to change the boolean value from false to true.

In-content Preferences:

about:config, filter for "browser.preferences.inContent", double-click...


These settings are also available in Waterfox 14.0.2. Like the original Firefox, they are not enabled by default. The value of these options will be a matter of preference. They don't change much and have nothing to do with the overall performance of the browser.

So they finally got around to adding to desktop browsers what mobile browsers have had for ages? (looks in drawer at HTC/Sprint Titan/Mogul)

In all seriousness, Im really happy to see "on demand" content features, helps a hell of alot when dealing with B/W caps (AT&T worst offender)

I'm using WF 14.0.1 and downloaded the latest, 14.0.2_3, but the install box only shows Add or remove features, Repair and Remove. What am I missing? Thanks,

Hey Mr.Alex,
Great job on waterfox 14 it works very well!. I did find on thing I do need clarification on: Waterfox 14 sets off AVG as containing a bad virus, is this true or just a false positive? And is there a fix yet for flash? I did find out if you watch a flash video or live tv using flash and then go to another website without quiting first it will give me the crash message. any body else getting either of the two problems?

I'm guessing Firefox 15 doesn't come with inline PDF enabled by default. So how do i enable it?
