Thank you very much for the update.

Just a question: Which one is the Bosskey if set to 1 in tmemutil.ini?

Kind regards,

Sad news:
Seems that xunxun1982 passed away. No update on the wordpress blog since 2015-11-08, and no update on Sourceforge, either. Seems that version 42 will be the last version of pcxFirefox. That's a real pity.

Kind regards,
DAC324

I'm wondering if there is a way to make localization suck less.
I know it's mozilla's fault it's just so annoying that I get the wretched xml parsing error all the time. If I forget to update the localization file, if I move my profile to one of the unstable channels and forget to disable it, accidentally installing wrong version, etc. Also general.useragent.locale always gets reset when I go to or from a localized firefox to one where I installed the localization myself.

(Why they made it such that localization files fail to load when a single string is added/changed is beyond comprehension)

Hi,

I wonder why there is no detailed documentation about the entries in 'tmemutil.ini'...

It seems that ProcessAffinityMask is only there to reduce the assigned cpu cores cause by windows10 every available core is for every process assigned by default.

Also, I did many tests with 'GdiBatchLimit' and no matter what you do, enable, disable oder increase the limit, the overall speed of firefox do not change.

Can anybody explain to me, if I did somehing wrong?

@xunxun1982
I have high respect of your work, but why do you compile a technically old firefox release when there a 'really' fast 64bit pgo nightly builds with smooth scrolling (async layers), e10s, w^x enabled/available by default?
All your nice optimizations in official latest release sadly do not beat the unoptimizied nightlys in terms of javascript/webgl etc. performance...

I hope very much that maybe you will think about a cutting edge pcxnightly, that would be a real beast.

There is an detect method in some Linux OS, which will detect your OS's localization and firefox will also set the same.

I can also use the method in some test edition, but won't adopt it in my edition.

I have forgotten tmemutil.ini details, when I remember it, I will write that.

Sorry, I don't use nightly, so I won't build nightly.

Would it be possible to add such preference to about:config to never disable DXVA video decoding, no matter how many corrupted dropped frames occurred?

Thanks.
I remembered someone mentioned it in the past, but I forgot that later.

I will consider it, but I need test it at first, so may not contain the fix until the next edition.

Hi!

A small thing: Do the release files really need to be in so many sub-fulders?

How about something like:
Code: Select all
 Home /  Firefox / 44.x / pcxFirefox-44.0-enUS-vc2013-x64-sse2-betterpgo-160131.7z


Instead of:
Code: Select all
 Home / Release / Firefox / 44.x / 44.0 / x64 / sse2 / pcxFirefox-44.0-enUS-vc2013-x64-sse2-betterpgo-160131.7z


Most of them only have one subfolder in them: 44.0, x64, sse2. This information is already provided by the filenames.
