allright folks, i think it's time to change this first post a bit, for some more information on my builds, which look very good so far, from what i can tell and users told me ...

i am doing the following builds right now, not all of them daily but have a look yourself:

firefox_ce_builddate_cvstree_optimizations.exe

this is an example filename, same applies for thunderbird builds, here' the explanation:

firefox_ce or thunderbird_ce is always the same, the rest of the filename depends, on date, options for cpu's etc, and cvs tree (e.g. TRUNK or BRANCH)

- builddate e.g. 20050910 (build of september, 09 2005)
- cvstree, as mentioned mostly BRANCH, maybe TRUNK sometimes or upon request.
- options are the compiler optimization switches most builders here use to optimize there builds:

-O2 -GALFT6 -Gs (builds optimized for CPU's from mmx ready cpu's upwards, basically a PI mmx cpu shoud work already, and all newer ones. all AMD cpu's that got mmx instructions as well, i think from AMD K7 upwards, so K6 will NOT work prolly)

-O2 -GALFT7 -Gs arch:SSE2 (builds optimized for more current CPU's. your CPU must have SSE2 instruction set support, meaning you need either a Athlon64 or newer or on the Intel side, at least a Pentium 4, don't think P3 already had SSE2, did it?)

builds are done using ms visual c++ toolkit 2003, for now with -O2 -GALFT6/7 -Gs arch:SSE(2) optimizations. these builds also include mmoy's patches (thx mmoy).

i'll try to do firefox branch builds daily if i find the time and of course if people like them.

allright, head over to:

http://apt.mine.nu/wp (my weblog)

or directly to the build archive at

http://boba.fatal-ecstasy.net

to checkout my first build (7z sfv format)

here's my current .mozconfig for all those interested:

mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR="@TOPSRCDIR@/../obj-win32"
. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig

GLIB_PREFIX=/cygdrive/d/mozilla/vc71
LIBIDL_PREFIX=/cygdrive/d/mozilla/vc71

export LDFLAGS="-ltcg"
mk_add_options LDFLAGS="-ltcg"
export MOZ_OPTIMIZE_LDFLAGS="-opt:ref,icf,nowin98"
mk_add_options MOZ_OPTIMIZE_LDFLAGS="-opt:ref,icf,nowin98"

# Optimized options
ac_add_options --enable-static
ac_add_options --disable-shared
ac_add_options --enable-single-profile
ac_add_options --disable-profilesharing
ac_add_options --disable-pedantic

ac_add_options --disable-activex
ac_add_options --disable-activex-scripting
ac_add_options --disable-composer
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --enable-installer

ac_add_options --disable-profilesharing
ac_add_options --enable-crypto
ac_add_options --enable-strip
ac_add_options --enable-strip-libs
ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-O2 -GALFT7 -Gs -arch:SSE2"
ac_add_options --enable-extensions=cookie,xml-rpc,xmlextras,p3p,pref,universalchardet,transformiix,webservices,negotiateauth,inspector

ac_add_options --without-system-nspr
ac_add_options --without-system-zlib
ac_add_options --without-system-jpeg
ac_add_options --without-system-png
ac_add_options --without-system-mng

These builds were compiled using Jairo Boudewyn's unofficial Firefox artwork.

for now leave any comments, suggestions here in the forums, since i don't have the time to setup a webpage for comments etc.

regards, boba

Nice build I have to say! I'm posting this with it now. Seems nice and fast for regular browsing so I think I'll make it my default 32-bit browser for now! Thanks!

Hi Boba,

I ran into some trouble when trying to extract the file. I got 208 error messages saying there is a "data error in 'firefox\....\'. File is broken". This happened when I downloaded the 19.08 SSE2 build. :)
The website said IE5 or better. So I installed Firefox.

Got the SSE build, so far so good. Seems nice and snappy, and it hasn't crashed in the first 15 minutes. 8)

Thanks again!
