Does too. You just have to look at the page a bit differently: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?noignore=1

Indeed, KWierso, the Win64 opt builds run tests.
The Win64 PGO builds do not.
However, the Win64 PGO builds are done with the latest code used on all of the others.

I don't mind doing the testing ...

My nightly just updated to 20.0a1 (2012-11-20) and won't stay open for more than a few seconds. I keep sending crash reports, but I have yet to find out what the problem is.
Oh, look,
There on my add-on bar.... it's my forecast fox with 3 days and nights. There's my weather radar, my unplug fish, my email notifier, x-notify, my proxy button and my noscript S..and you say the add-on bar is useless and unnecessary.

If you look in about:crashes, you should find this:
Crash Reason EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_READ

From what I've read on the builds thread, I'm uncertain if this is only relegated to Win64 builds.

I've gone back to the previous Win64 PGO build. No issues.

My nightly has also updated to 20.0a1, and it crashes every few minutes. How do I go back to the last build?

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... a-central/

Look for the "firefox-19.0a1.en-US.win64-x86_64" options.

If you have it installed, download the installer and uninstall and install again. If you use the zip builds, download the zip and extract it overwriting your current folder.

And you might want to disable auto-updates until you know it's fixed.

Thanks, Rodze. Image

Additionally, one can go to the PGO builds and download the last Nov. 19th build (it's Fx 20.0a1).

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... win64-pgo/

There will be no auto updates by doing so.

I just checked the latest PGO build ... still crashes.

I'll check them regularly. If it's still crashy, I'll simply roll back to the build mentioned above.

I'll let y'all know when I get a "good" build. :)

That is a hourly build so it will not get updates due to having channel of default.

The Complaint department link is borked until unknown time.

Caught me mid-edit, James. Still, much appreciated. :)

^ not sure what you're pointing to, but that's not the Nightly i want to use...

20.0a1 is absolutely awful! it was constantly crashing every minute or two (sometimes even less!) without fail... couldn't figure out if it was my add-ons causing problems or what but disabling some or all of them didn't seem to help whatsoever. finally "downgraded" back to 19.0a1 & everything's kosher again :mrgreen:

It's just hourly build of Nightly, compared to daily build.

PS. fixed a typo in my post before

Thank you to everyone who participated in this thread. Given the
existing information, I have decided to proceed with disabling windows
64-bit nightly and hourly builds. Please let us consider this discussion
closed unless there is critical new information which needs to be presented.
