Another very good build for my PII. Speed seems to be the same as the "MozillaFirefox-20040327-O2-GAL6-crc32" build that I have been using, but I`m going to do more testing with this one. I would never know the Inspector is there if I didnt already know it. :wink: Thanks for the build JTw.

On my PII the "MozillaFirefox-20040404-O2-GAL6-crc32-Inspector-Calendar.exe" build is slower than the "MozillaFirefox-20040327-O2-GAL6-crc32.exe" build that I have been using, which is the #1 fastest build that I use, and the new one is also slower than the Lohvarn, and Djeter that I use. Sure would like to see an update of the older Firefox-20040327-O2-GAL6-crc32.

hmmm i compared my .mozconfigs from 3/27 with the one from 4/4 ...... no big changes only that this one has this option
Code: Select all
ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=windows

I'll remove that and try building
the other reason's probably that yesterday when i was building i accidentlally opened a probram which used up 75% of my CPU....and i didn't realize it till the build was nearly finished @@ dunno if that effects anything

Calendar shouldn't be causing a slowdown of the speed, i dunno i'll try after i finish building today's build even though there's really no point to build today (lol lack of "green lines")

too bad VC++ can't do -O3 optimizations :-(

Was or wasn't Calendar in the 3/27 one?

I'd do the EXACT SAME thing and try it just to eliminate the doubt.

No harm, since there are no other changes out there to build for. ;-)

Just updated my user.js, got some really impressive results (5.6~5.8), if you are interested you can try this one
i dunno ... for some reason about:config doesn't read some of my user.js settings (example: pipelining), if you have the same thing happen, just manually change them

JTw:

Firefox is rendering your page in "quirks mode". not good.

Validate it. (validator.w3.org)

..about your site's with new look..imo not bad but need some touch-up. I have suggestion to propose :-

1). Try change the white color background...change it to light blue and for background use dark blue or any ?
2). Normally you will write like this `Firefox-20040403-O2-GAL7-SSE2-crc32-(with Inspector and Firefox Help Ver 1.1 ) to point to your build.Imo..its took alot of space.Try make shorter like this: your build spec (DOMi and Help Ver 1.1)

Just my $0.2 cts.... :)
