Because I always have issues compiling under Ubuntu.

Ah. There's a PC here with mint, I can try seeing if it'll compile on that.

Just an update for anyone that's interested, they've hidden a few more pesky instances of this social bull**** in firefox 18, old diff doesn't fully work though it does remove most, removed the last bits by hand just now and just compiling for arch now in my new RAID0 setup (assuming I didn't balls anything up and it broke something!)

EDIT: Oh and I've not got a clue how any of these changes are going to impact webRTC. It is firefox 18 with webRTC right? Someone will need to test that or show/explain how I can test it.

So here we have it;
Firefox 18 without social api!

Arch linux compiled package x86_64

Other x86_64 distros should be able to extract the files and try it and see if it works.

what exactly is this "social bull****"? I've never seen any superflous social thing in either Fx17 or 18

It's for FF17 and not FF18 as 18 has much more of it in but feel free to have a look at this patch and you'll see what it is and how it's loaded constantly even if it's apparently 'disabled'; http://www.neowin.ne...ttach_id=323374

As firefox 17 is old, I've created a new thread and moved all current releases and whatnot there;

it's disabled by default.

You need to go in about:config and enable it by yourself.

Personally i don't care as i use FF for debugging only. The responsive design view is so full of awesomeness.
