These are all Trunk Builds.

I built Mozilla Firebird today from CVS with Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0.

Zip / Self Extracting EXE Build:
http://pryan.org/firebird/aebrahim/Mozi ... 040202.zip (6.45MB - zip)
http://pryan.org/firebird/aebrahim/Mozi ... 040202.exe (4.88MB - 7z sfx)

Installer Build:
http://pryan.org/firebird/aebrahim/Fire ... 040202.exe (6.17MB)

checkout start: Mon Feb 2 00:02:16 PST 2004

You can find a copy of these builds (and my older builds) on pryan's mirror:
http://pryan.org/firebird/aebrahim

My .mozconfig is as follows:

. $topsrcdir/browser/config/mozconfig
ac_add_options --disable-tests
ac_add_options --disable-debug
ac_add_options --enable-optimize
ac_add_options --enable-static
ac_add_options --disable-shared

Just a quick thank you. I went as far as downloading the installer version and aside from the known installer bugs, everything is working fine.

I'm installing it now; many thanks.

A question, Mr. Ebrahim: I've looked at recent postings about optimization, but most of it is over my head. I'm used to using your optimized builds, but I assume this one is not optimized. Should I expect to notice a difference? [My system, below.] This will be the 4th Aebrahim build I'm running concurrently at the moment.
Main box XP32 and XP64, using FF 3.6, K-Meleon, IE8, and OffByOne.
This is a home-built AMD Athlon x2 5600+, 8GB GSkill @ 800, 1.7TB on 4 SATAs, 3 ODD. No gaming; just a workhorse
Others in home Eee 901 with XP32 SP3; also Asus F3T with Vista

This build is still optimised, but just not to the processor specific level. You can expect that performance may not be as good as some of the builds which are optimised for specific processors.

Kudos to You! :)

Also, as a suggestion, instead if starting a new topic like you were doing, just update info in first post, this way you keep all info related to your thread.

Thanks for your reply, Mr. Ebrahim. I'm running a heavy multi-task system this morning; all seems well.

aebrahim, will these be your standard builds now or will you also continue building optimized builds using the VS.NET 2003 platform?

While the Win32 build machine appears to be down, I'll try and provide these (since otherwise no installer gets built at all by anyone). I'm not going to make daily processor optimised builds. I will however probably make processor optimised builds every time something significant is checked in that is likely to affect the user experience.

Regarding 0.8, I'm not likely to make optimised builds for it, because I think most of the people who use my other builds have already moved onto the trunk and are not likely to regress back onto the branch.

Yes, indeed. Waiting for the branch took too long, and the trunk gives very satisfying builds.
Thanks for your contribution (glad you're back).

I second the thought.

I've been using the "official" branch builds for awhile, but I'm back on the Ebrahim bandwagon. This is really nice. Thanks Mr. E.

I'll start building again if it would help any aebrahim, not been in the game for ages.. plus not tried building on this 3000+ yet (should be a bit faster). No idea of the flags for installer builds though?

Right now I think I have the nightly/installer builds covered. Though if you want to build install builds, you can find the info here:
1. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firebird/build.html
2. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firebir ... build.html

Remember that you must use VC6 to build the installer otherwise it will not work on systems without the correct C/C++ runtimes installed (which is most systems).

I prefer new topics for each set of builds, because it makes it easier for me to read all the build threads for a day and determine if anyone has reported regressions.
