Thanks for the hint! Problem was indeed related to BitDefender.

You mean content only? Because text rendering of the GUI is broken since march (for me): https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1360933

Latest nightly seem to abruptly break (larger) mp3 files playback.
Example : https://mp3s.nashownotes.com/NA-927-2017-05-07-Final.mp3
Seems to break every time I play it, sometimes after some hour+, sometimes after some 2 hours+

Using the console, I could only see the first part is being downloaded upon loading the page, so I don't think this has anything to do with yesterday's #1362821 fix. :-k

(EDIT: Seems like a buffering issue)



What does "break" mean?

Well, suddenly playback stops, and the pause & resume buttons ain't doing anything. Only way out is refresh and restart from beginning.
But I suspect it might be a site-specific issue, buffering.


I tried three times(with e10s x2, without e10s x1), but I could not reproduce the problem....
The audio was played uninterrupted until the end.

Mozilla products are unreliable!!!!

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Stop rapid release without automated test!
Now, Firefox lacks reliability. Storm of regression bugs. Let's switch to Chrome.

Since Fx is going to be like Google Chrome as far as extensions go I decided for the first time in my life to install Chrome (v59 beta) to see what they offer in the way of extensions. Extensions aside I find Chrome slower than Fx. I also find getting to Google options and the like was harder than it is with Fx. I guess it's possible Fx will go the same way particularly no more about:config.

Back to extensions. I thought that extensions that modified context menus wasn't allowed. In Chrome there is an extension that allows me to assign any icon to my bookmark sites as it's favicon. I thought this wasn't allowed.

(Why is "Gecko" still on 2010? I'd think there would be something newer there...)

Thanks.

I didn't see what that had to do with the speed improvement, but then realized it might be an answer to the "Gecko" question. I have no idea what all that means, though. :? :roll: Can you translate to English? :-k

Anyone know why windows m-c builds of late are failing after hanging non-complete for hours at a time ? I don't do IRC anymore or I'd ask in Builds...

Chrome has about:flags, which is kind of similar

I'm not impressed with Chrome. It's missing some nice features that are in Fx. Like a drop down location bar menu of sites you've been to. I hope Mozilla doesn't make it a 100% look alike for Chrome and gets rid of it's nice touches. I even like Fx's separate search box which Chrome doesn't have.

I don't like Chrome either. Have you tried Microsoft Edge?
