Most of the Internet issues should be over.

It turns out a good part of the problem was Level 3, multiple ISPs having issues.

Level 3 stated it was caused by a "Configuration error".

Happy it is fixed. I just signed up for an Internet and Voice package and am awaiting the modem/router delivery.

Back on topic: I tried web render and it didn't work too well for my Linux Nightly. I had blank tabs, blank sites and other issues. I might try it in my Nightly on Windows.

Following the instructions in the WebRender newsletter #9, I tried WebRender briefly in Nightly (64-bit) using my test (almost new) profile (no extensions) on my system (Windows 7 64-bit).

The good news is that the browser did not crash almost instantly when scrolling a long page (unlike the last time I tried it).

The bad news ...

  • I get a blue screen for almost three seconds covering all of the area Firefox Nightly would occupy, before seeing the tab, navigation bars, etc.
  • The Windows control in the upper right (minimize, full screen, close) are not visible, but I do get the mouse hint when I hover the mouse pointer over where they should be, and close (X) does indeed close Firefox. I tried several themes, but those controls still remain invisible.
  • On the tab bar, the New Tab icon (the plus sign) is not visible with the built-in themes, but it is visible when I add a user theme.
  • Typing on the search bar has an unpleasant delay after hitting the second character before the third character appears. Once the third letter appears I also have search results. ... Oh, this happened just once per Firefox start-up; I wonder if it was waiting on render process creation or something else, but it was annoying.
  • Library -> Bookmarks -> Show all bookmarks showed a solid black area for two seconds before displaying the bookmarks I have in that profile.

It just feels like it has a lot of jank.

For loading my overly-long Netflix disc queue, with WebRender enabled in the almost-new profile it took 31 seconds; in my normal profile with add-ons, it took 28 seconds. So, at least for that specific page, I didn't see an improvement with WebRender.

For now, I am turning WebRender back off.

I had posted the above in the appropriate thread in Discourse.

My opinion: this isn't quite ready to "ride the rails" into Beta and Release, and I doubt it would get enough testing to do so in the next 7 days when Nightly 58 will be cloned to become Beta 58. But it is getting closer and it just might make it for 59.

It is in a pre alpha state. It would be a miracle if it made 59. I think it would already be a miracle if it would be enabled in Nightly 59 for Windows by default.
I just hope it won't be an endless development like e10s...

Does anybody know what the current status of Quantum DOM is? Nothing seems to be happening on that front.

E10s was a very large change even years in the making. These things take time.

Not sure about QuantumDOM. Everything just kind of went quiet around that one.

AFAIK it's still being worked on and I have seen a few discussions in relation to it here and there.

Javascript Start-up Bytecode Cache is now activated by default:
TL;DR: better JavaScript load time on every web page startup! With an average of 43 ms faster, it's a lot!

When I had WebRender enabled, the Forecastfox menu would not load, but the toolbar would. The options page also would not load.

Looks like there is some activity around bug 1391159 which could prove to be interesting. If I'm not mistaken it may help reduce the time Firefox takes to start with WebRender enabled.

I just found out that DEV is now v. 58, at least as offered at Download Developer Edition in your language.

Beta is still 57.
