Remember that any Chromium-based browser is a botnet and that Firefox is the official browser of /g/.
There is no system but GNU, and Linux is one of its kernels.
Don't forget to move webgl rendering off the main thread:
webkit is love, webkit is life. soon everything will be running webkit, even firefox. why delay the inevitable?
I was rekt by a jeep that ran a light while I was on my poor motorcycle
Only major change is that add-on signing is now enforced. However, there are improvements on video support along with a few security changes
>Ads integrated into browser
>Forced extension signing
>Adopting Chrome's extension format
It may be better than Chrome, but it's certainly no longer /g/ approved or endorsed. The second someone comes along with a freedom and user-respecting browser I'll be dropping Firefox like a bad habit.
That's a reductive argument that ignores the actual stance being taken. Of course code doesn't have a political motive. But people and projects do. Reducing the debate down to "code doesn't have politics" is about as silly as dismissing the boycotts of Chick Fil A with "food doesn't have politics"
Boycotting Firefox because you don't want to support SJWs is not much different than boycotting Chick Fil A because you don't want to support homophobia.
I've been using Firefox ever since I stopped using IE which was I don't even know how long ago. From almost the beginning. It has served me faithfully, first I started using it because you couldn't change the history settings in IE, but then I discovered addons and the story goes on.
During this time I've considered Chrome a few times, I've installed it and used it but I've never really felt that it's faster than Firefox. The menus are retarded and it's dependent on a google account login. I don't want google or anyone else to know what exactly I browse, even though it's mostly just /g/. I still feel that selling my internet usage anonymously is wrong. They might say they don't do it, but they are as guilty of it as microshit is with windows 10.
With Firefox you can opt out of bloat features and it won't affect your user experience. You can even take those features and hide them from the menus so it's like they never existed in the first place. Whatever that smiley face thing is and pocket - nah, not for me, fucking dropped. Don't really care for the SJW devs as long as the browser retains it core features and isn't reliant on some kind of an account login.
Firefox just werks. For me it has been stable and reliable, I can customize the look of it to a degree that satisfies me and I don't really know what else I might want from a browser. I guess I'm a little salty now that there's no imgur extension anymore, I used to use that a lot.
Dude, they used $15,000 OF YOUR DONATIONS to remove the word slave from their code.
I literally switched from Firefox to Chromium the day I heard this, the plugins suck but at least I'm not supporting literal bullshit. Working code > politcal correctness. I could name my variable, public int niggerspickikechinkwopfaggot and as long as my code works, it's no worries.
Are they ever going to fix their shitty ass fullscreen API that can sometimes cause a crash if you ctrl+tab while something is full screen (and if it doesn't crash it takes whatever you're doing out of full screen)?
Flash is shit, but it is really nice that you can alt+tab to check something quick while leaving a video playing in the background and then alt+tab back and still be in fullscreen
And use what instead?
Botnet. Begs you to sign in, even adds an unhidable button to do so.
Nice backdoor, still lets Google load and run arbitrary code in it like they did to make the speech recognition thing work in the Google search box.
Pretty much a reskinned Chrome these days, with perhaps a bit less universal compatibility with sites.
Low extension compatibility. Issues with some sites.
Yes, it's perfect!
this window didnt even worked for me
>checking for updates...
>go to this site to update firefox
wtf is this shit mozilla?
>Users can now choose a homepage to display on startup instead of the Top Sites panel
Not him but I used 64bit and it was shit compared to 32bit version. Lots of errors and bugs and I was on stable. Don't know how 44.0 is but I don't think it will improve much "speed"-wise.
It's not that it listens on the mic, dumbass. It downloaded a blob with no source to implement the feature. It could download any blob Google wants and run it without you even knowing.
After the chromium team made it opt-in by default. It's not like Google directly added and downloads binary code on chromium. I'm not defending either party but this doesn't seem like Google is just running whatever it wants whenever it wants
Its alarmist bullshit, they maintain the code they can "allegedly" make it do whatever they want.
Don't use such huge complicated software at all if you are worried about privacy and security imo. FireFox is worse though because Mozilla are evil SJW faggots.
>no, it's just different
have you ever felt that firefox "just doesn't feel right" but not being able to explain exactly how you want it to be different without using memes*?
if that's the case, pale moon is for you!
>with the bare minimum allowed for the site to work
Well you replied to this comment which means you have JS enabled on at least 4chan.org and google(recaptcha) so thats two attack vectors right there just for XSS
> Firefox is the official browser of /g
Since when? Based on privacy and technology, Chromium, Opera or Midori are the official browsers of /g/. Knowing what we know about the Mozilla Foundation and the direction Firefox is going in, /g/ abandoned the Firefox browser for being utterly incapable to innovate.
Further, if lack of innovation for an application in the technology industry isn't a clear sign of trouble, I don't know what is.
You'd have to be a fool to adopt or rely upon Firefox's offerings.
how do i enable mu.ti process mode?
So, how many more releases until the end, when Firefox drops their old way of doing addons and moves to having the same limited system as Chrome? I've been using Firefox since 2004 and part of me doesn't want to get off the ride until the end.
Autistic people are not usually that bad they just might occasionally do weird shit that might be annoying to the average person. A lot of them have a strange habit or a fixation with certain objects, they probably won't talk much but they might make strange sounds or constantly mess with objects or fidget in their chair or do other things.
>tfw using firefox 28
>I don't know how to upgrade
I opened the new firefox folder but idk what to do with it. I clicked the "run-mozilla.sh" and put run and run in terminal but nothing happened
>FIREFOX 44 IS OUT
Remember, you have one version of Firefox left before they remove Tab Groups. Thankfully someone took the tab groups code and made an add-on for it.
Since 44 stable is out, I only have to wait a few more days before 46.0a2 comes out.
>le security meme
I haven't had problems with 12.17 2bh
The rare page doesn't work(I have Memefox as a secondary browser for that)
A bad point about it though is that because google are dicks you can't use their image search feature in 12.17 so if you use that frequently then I don't recommend it
>Based on privacy and technology, Chromium, Opera or Midori are the official browsers of /g/.
No, they're not.
>/g/ abandoned the Firefox browser for being utterly incapable to innovate.
No, it didn't.
>You'd have to be a fool to adopt or rely upon Firefox's offerings.
Its the best browser for the average /g/ user.
If you mean the start page ads, no info is getting sent to advertisers, no tracking is being done. And it's open source and you can confirm this.
Not implying that makes it okay, though. Firefox is now literally adware.
What's the other feature?
Does it still run proprietary drm blobs?
Does it still include that Pocket botnet?
Does it still transmit every site your visit to firefox hq via "health check"?
Does it still show you ads on the new tab page?
Is it still run by SJWs?
Deleting functions because muh secuirity(More like were a fkkn bunch of incompetent PHP faggots who cant into pen testing)
Wow So fast on win 10 (R)
Fuck of nigger
Mine served a couple ads.
I'm not a fan, but I can see why they did it. Microsoft has office and other software packages, Google has the advertisement and data they sell to advertisers, Mozilla has.... either ads or wikipedia like donation drives as their only possible income.
I'm not a fan of it and would add it to the growing list of complaints I have with the browser, but I can see their reasoning.
None, because I'm a massive faggot who just did a blank install and cleared them out along with the other get started tabs. I added my usual addon suite and that stopped that it seems. I will see if I can get it to repeat it and get a screenshot for you.
And the main problem with ads, i.e. creepy tracking malware serving bullshit, doesn't happen with these.
No data gets sent back to the advertisers.
The ads are directly vetted, so no random third parties shitting it up with malware and porn.
>Mozilla only source of income
In 2006, the Mozilla Foundation received US$66.8 million in revenues, of which US$61.5 million is attributed to "search royalties" from Google.
From 2004 to 2014, the foundation had a deal with Google to make Google Search the default in the Firefox browser search bar and hence send it search referrals; a Firefox themed Google search site was also made the default home page of Firefox. The original contract expired in November 2006. However, Google renewed the contract until November 2008 and again through 2011. On December 20, 2011, Mozilla announced that the contract was once again renewed for at least three years to November 2014, at three times the amount previously paid, or nearly US$300 million annually. Approximately 90% of Mozilla’s royalties revenue for 2014 was derived from this contract.
In November 2014, Mozilla signed a five-year partnership with Yahoo!, making Yahoo! Search the default search experience for Firefox in North America effective December 2014, while it will be Yandex in Russia and Baidu in China. However, it is also to be noted that Yahoo! Search is merely a front-end to Microsoft's search engine Bing, and Microsoft takes a 12% cut of all revenue from the search business per the deal. Due to Mozilla's financial release timetables, the results of the Yahoo! contract will not be public until November 2016
Yeah, I attempted to force some by opening blocks of bookmarks and clicking all links, and no new ads showed after I cleared out sites. It may look for more sites to be visited enough to appear in the panel and then serve ads, or closing them may keep them away for a certain amount of time.
My complaints pretty much revolve around how at least on my computer, firefox seems to be getting slower with each update. And chrome, god, the chrome issues I've been having. Fuck that browser.
What OS are you using?
Ive run 64 bit on windows 7, 10, and linux all with 0 issues. Well thats not true. There was actually one issue on windows 10 where I had to delete the FF user profile and reinstall because google got stuck refreshing every time you performed a search. But other that that, nothing.
I wanted to use FF last month, but for some reason it gave me the "Not responding" lag/freeze issue when put under heavy load. I don't have any problems with Chrome though. Is it because my system is old and it has little memory to work with and thus it cripples it?
ok, im done with firefox.
>every website unable to load (looking up URL freeze)
>crash every time i exit
>it just werks
Can I still make my browser look like this without any add-ons? Because they fucked that up a while ago and every time I checked an update they hadn't fixed it yet, so I gave up on updating.
>Chrome is still faster and adblock works like a charm
It might be 1% faster (dunno, never felt faster for me) but it's also using like 2-3 times the CPU power. Great on a laptop, real great.
Firefox can be great if you spend some time playing with about:config
Right now, the browser itself takes around 150 megabytes of ram, while the plugin container about 120.
not too shabby
So the only thing Joe-Schmoe cares about in this release is Webm support and brotli compression helping with page load times? Why does this update warrant an entire release "x.0"? Just all the developer stuff?
how do i bring back the close, minimize and maximize buttons? Use the setting "Tabs not on top v2" in Classic Theme Restorer extension.
Official browser? Sorry, Mozilla can suck officially my dick and face me in person with their laughable Chrome UI clone so i can smash their butt ugly pig faces with my steel boots!
>Low extension compatibility.
I haven't encountered any problems with any of the ones I use, other than obviously the ones that are built-in (s4e and ctr) and the one video downloader that is so poorly maintained that they change the supported FF version numbers fairly randomly. Editing updated versions of that extension manually fixes everything (and editing extensions to behave how you want them to is something that is going to disappear from Firefox soon anyway, which is not a problem Pale Moon will ever have).
>Issues with some sites.
Only the ones that do stupid shit based on user agent, and there are trivial ways around that.
Why oh why
I checked never search for updates, yet it still updated to ff44, why does this keep happening /g/? Fuuuck
Not only pages with user agent issues, all modern pages which need web drafts instead of normal standard script features.
All of them broken in Pale Moon. Or Cnet broken, Jamedo broken, Google hangout page broken, Skype webservice page broken and so on.
Because Chrome happened.
Releases are fixed: a new major version every 6 weeks. It doesn't matter what they accomplished in this time (slight exceptions, there's usually a "main goal" for a release they want to reach). Various stuff will hit the browser in minor updates. Also, the linked release notes are usually kind of "polished" for consumers and not exhaustive.
The main "goal" of 44 was to be the first stable version with forced extension signing, nothing spectacular for the end user.
Chrome started with this fast major version numbers (among browsers) and unfortunately people actually thought at some point that Firefox must be totally old and outdated/unmaintained because Chrome had a so much higher version number. This was pretty much the reason why they changed to the same system. Sounds sad. Is sad. Fucking normies.
>takes 15 seconds
>hangs entire browser while it struggles to load some fucking images
>uses 300MB+ memory which slowly creeps upward unhindered to almost 1GB after 10-20 minutes
>fully loaded in 1 second
>fucking stays there
Mozilla is making really shitty decisions since Australis and servo modules will probably take a long time before hiting, like x64 builds and e10s (which people talk about since firefox 4.0).
I'd use lynx if I could browse 4chan with it.
>inb4 just print the pictures you want to see
