Did everybody abandon Nightly? Awful quiet here. :?

Anyway Windows Nightly is out!

Either a lot of my bookmarked sites changed to https overnight, or I just didn't notice the bookmark star wasn't filled in until today. Adding the s to http in the bookmarks properties fixed that.

I'm using Fx57 for regular browsing. The only extensions I have are uBlock Origin, Stylus, and Violentmonkey. No significant issues to complain about :)

I came across a serious performance regression recently caused by a lot of expensive stuff FF runs on the UI thread in the face of too many ongoing HTTP requests. More details here:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1396856
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1397448
Unfortunately, I don't notice any improvements after these bugs landed. I reproduced this regression when scrolling the page in the active tab while loading another web page with big number of thumbnails in the background with uMatrix installed.

To say honestly, I am afraid the performance profiles I sent to developers might not be enough to find the source of the problem so maybe someone on this forum will help devs get rid of this issue.
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English. Current list of config tweaks: https://pastebin.com/1dCT4Cvp

Can't agree more. Except a few glitches with my google drive sometime, it all works just fine.

I'm still using Nightly. Or should it now be called Nightly and Daily ... Night and Day. (There's a song by that name!)

Bug?: With twice the updates I noticed that the Big Mac menu last night didn't have the green restart arrow nor id the top menu item have "Restart Firefox" even though Help -> About Firefox indicated Firefox should be restarted to install latest upgrades. I don't know if this was a one-off bug.

Fixed: I noticed right+click on download icon or on library icon no longer produces two context menus, but just the one it should.

Still broken: We still have the bug of doing a mouse drag from the (i) of the address bar to the Bookmarks Toolbar has the drop indicator (blue down-pointing triangle that should be just above the Bookmarks Toolbar) is still up in the tab bar or hidden. (I think the regression I ran for this bug was the latest regression I had run.)

Otherwise, right now I have no issues to complain about and I am still using Nightly as my Daily browser. (There's that song title again! Ella Fitzgerald - Night and Day.) :D

@ GHM113 - If I remember correctly, gorhill said that WebExtensions will be slower then legacy extensions (or at least uBlock Orgin).
Virtualfox persona

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR

This new Library - Downloads panel is very choppy for me if I scroll the list of downloaded items with mouse wheel or two finger gesture on touchpad... but very smooth using scrollbar...

still here, still nightly. Recently made a new profile and am seeing a lot of small nitpicky issues I was having resolved, so that's nice! :)

Still here as well... I'm just not finding anything to complain about. Some of the recent, last few days things, others are seeing I'm not able to repo.

I have noticed for myself anyhow that over past couple days the Nightly seems faster. I use one addon - ForecastFox, and of course the other 'junkware' Mozilla has added.

No... 10 months ago I said (emphasis added):

This matches my (superficial) findings, about which I commented on reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/commen ... s/d9dz9ms/. I am very confident though that as the webext API matures, performance will get better -- it still being in development, I expect more time will be spent on optimisations in the near future.

Summary: performance difference was small, and I expected things to improve given how much development work was left ahead.

So I ran the exact same benchmark as I did in the reddit post, here is the result I just got for the same web page:

Nightly 57.0a1 (2017-09-11) (64-bit):
- uBO/webext (out of process): 581.04 ms
- No extension: 513.84 ms

Compare this to what I got 10 months ago with Nightly:
- uBO/webext: 926 ms
- No extension: 445 ms

For comparison/reference, here is what I get with Chrome 62 (also dev build):
- uBO: 610.14 ms
- No extension: 517.70 ms
