Thanks, let me know how it goes!

Yes won't be any issues. This is basically the final build, just it isn't digitally signed. Has the test build fixed the sluggishness?

Yep! Page loads are speedier now.

Couple quick bugs though:

First time I copied the files over and then ran WF it stalled and took ages to load. Must've been doing a release-notes version check or summat and couldn't find it.

Also every now and then the autocomplete dropdown won't fill in from past history + bookmarks. Deleting the text and then typing something else seems to kick it back into gear.

Am using the following extensions:
  • Download Cleaner (auto-wipes download history on successful d/l)
  • New Xkit (Tumblr add-on)
  • NoScript (javascript blocker/whitelister)
  • Self-Destructing Cookies (self-explanatory, default blacklist of cookies, selective preservation based on a whitelist)

EDIT: Also noticing a couple weirdities with scrolling; it's kind of like WF is "bunching" the text at the first third and second third of the page as text moves up or down. Might be an issue with the smooth-scrolling algorithm (and probably is: I just disabled smooth scrolling and things seem OK now).

EDIT 2: I can reproduce the problem with the autocomplete dropdown if my mouse pointer is anywhere in the vicinity of where the dropdown will be. It's still a bit randomish but it seems to NOT happen if the mouse pointer is anywhere else on the screen.

EDIT 3: It looks like Mozilla "squashed" things down in the rendering engine for FF 44+. Self-Destructing Cookies has a popup that looks messed-up in beta!WF, but in a FF 43.0.4 64bit install I have on another computer, it appears fine (but after update to 44.0.1 it looked messed there, too). Also, the autocomplete dropdown has more spacing between the lines than WF 44 beta does (it's pretty subtle though). Could you un-do this in your release WF build?

Waterfox 44 beta:



Firefox 43.0.4:



The "Visit website.com" feature was not reverted: I just used the arrow-click shortcut on the 43.0.4 dropdown.

EDIT 4:

I've also noticed that HTML5 video on Youtube in ~1080p fullscreen (I use a 1920x1200 screen) seems kind of a touch blurry and choppy, but in the normal-size video screen the images are very crisp and the framerate is noticeably faster. Firefox HTML5 engine issues?

With Javascript disabled Waterfox's website is presenting to me a "Download for Mac" button. How on earth can it be not even trying to check my useragent for the OS?

Sorry I didn't reply earlier, didn't know there were edits!

 

  1. Seems strange that, maybe it's indexing your history once again. Have you noticed any different now after running for a while?
  2. That seems odd. Does hardware acceleration have anything to do with the effect?
  3. Interesting, I'll see if I can find a bug relating to the size decrease
  4. Yes, I get it on both FF and WF on my 2560x1080 monitor

I'm delaying the auto-update, I'm saving up money to cover the CDN cost :D, just found out Github allow hosting of binary files, may move to that, it's free!

Yep that's the default button download. The website is (mostly) static for simplicity's sake and so JavaScript detects the browser. It's what almost every (even dynamic) website uses to detect user agent.

It should be the opposite in this release. Any chance you take a video?

Could you elaborate a bit? Any screenshots of what's missing?

@MrAlex

I tried restarting the browser and it seems faster now. Maybe it was just about the cache when I first upgraded. I'll monitor and will report back with a video if there are more issues.

The release 44.0.2 patches the dropdown bug that caused text nondisplay so I imagine some debugging code was causing that little issue. I'll reinstate smooth scrolling and see how it rolls.
