Well, done some testing and so far I've noticed the following:

Generic bookmark icon is different/missing? (Dashed rounded edge box, recall it being a globe or document.)

Several of the "about: " pages were not working on the first time launch of TFF 8.0b1 (Upon second launch, they now work fine.)

Clicking on a bookmark in the bookmark menu while holding the Command key does not open the bookmark in a new tab, but Instead opens in the current tab. (Works fine if it's a link on the page or the bookmark is in the bookmark bar.)

I haven't noticed any major performance improvements... But then I haven't been browsing on my PBG4 in a while. I'll have to download TFF7 and see if there is any noticeable difference in performance.

Otherwise another successful release. :D

Mozilla did change the icons, so the bookmark icon change is probably intentional. I'll compare.

I'll verify Cmd-bookmarks menu, but I agree that is probably wrong.

Just have to reiterate that Mozilla's current release cycle plan is really stupid. (But thanks to CHC for keeping up with the insanity.)

That is all.

I'm just going to piggyback on this thread (mods: could you change the title to TenFourFox?) since it's stickied already.

TenFourFox 9 is out as well as the QTE. Besides JavaScript regex compilation, it also includes (secretly) the new JavaScript methodjit compiler. Testing really needed! Methodjit is not enabled by default to prevent the clueless from hurting themselves and others. Read the blog entry:

If you need any help at all, PM me. I just setup 9.2.2 and know my way around C/C++ .

Which dev tools would you recommend?

I posted in your other thread :) however, TenFourFox is intended for 10.4 and 10.5.

Just got type inference working over the Christmas holiday!

Perceptibly faster than version 9 on my 12" G4 1.5GHz PowerBook, but also seems to cause the machine to run slightly hotter. I am, however, liking it a lot.

Quite a dramatic speed boost from 10.01 to 10.0.2pre:

Sunspider results on a G5 Quad with speed at highest.

FFx 10.0.1 1005.4ms.....10.0.2pre 862.3ms

Great work everyone!

CHC, I may have asked this before somewhere, but I forget. Does any of your stuff make it back into the main Fx project tree?

beachycove, it does keep pipelines more full and that probably explains some of it because the CPU can do more work a larger percentage of the time. But I sure couldn't go back to 10.0.1.

CT, some of it. This will get submitted back to them, yes. The 10.4 specific stuff, I don't bother; they probably don't want it anyway. But the cross-POWER stuff could be valuable for Linux and AIX, so I send those, as well as cross-platform bugs such as the ones in layout that assumed a one-byte boolean (PPC natively uses four-byte booleans because it's faster).

Pardon my confusion - I'm on 9.0/7450 now - should I upgrade now (and if so, to which version) or wait for 10.0.2pre to become 10.0.2 ... not-pre?

You may as well wait because I have one more bug to land on 10.0.2 before release (issue 132 which is fast-tracking a Mozilla graphics glitch patch that has languished on their end). But if you want teh snappy, that's the only bug of significance I am so far aware of and can confirm.
