Metro FF is coming soon to mc [1]
More work on making smoother tabs and faster startup has been done [2] (Although startup is not that faster , but once ff is launched it is pretty much usable right away)

So I read this article Chrome has gotten 26 percent faster this year , and wondered how fast has FF become over a year !

I ran the same Octane test , for FF8 , FF16 and the latest nightly FF 19 (The build is exactly a year after FF 8 was launched).

The results were :

FF 19 6025 (106%) <8 Nov 2012>
FF 16 5408 (85%) <9 Oct 2012>
FF 8 2921 (0%) <8 Nov 2011>

So that's all , FF has seen such drastic performance improvements over a year that it puts Chrome's improvements to dust.

Just for sake of comparison , I also tested Chrome 24.0.1312.5 dev , and it scored 8577 (42% faster than FF 19) , which ain't that bad I guess for Firefox I guess.

PS : A very delightful and a happy birthday to Firefox for completing its 8 years ! :D :D :D

The white bar at the bottom issue is bugging the hell out of me. Anyone else experiencing this in the Nightlies?

This should get it looking pretty close.

@namespace url('http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul');
@-moz-document url('chrome://browser/content/browser.xul') {
  #appmenu-button {
	margin: 0 !important;
	background: #1979CA padding-box !important;
	box-shadow: none !important;
	border: 0 !important;
	border-radius: 0 !important;
	font-weight: normal !important;
	text-shadow: none !important;
	transition: .1s background-color ease-out !important;
  }
  #appmenu-button:not([open]):hover {
	background-color: #298CE1 !important;
  }
  #appmenu-button[open] {
	background-color: #1268B3 !important;
  }
  #appmenu-button > .button-box > .button-menu-dropmarker {
	display: none;
  }
  #appmenu-button > .button-box > .box-inherit > .button-text {

}

Yes i have that too and its bugging me too.But there seem to be 2 different bugs.One for new profile which as far as i heard is related to social API and another one(#809258 and #726285).I have the bar on new profile bug with no addons at all installed,but on my dirty profile when i disable X-notifier and Lastpass addons the bug goes away completely.

New Australis Tab Try Build is out ( http://ftp.mozilla.o...31f5/try-win32/ )

Untitled.png

Tab bar isn't draggable now . But other wise it looks neat. Except this (Firefox should really improve their Persona themes) :

I hope so too. Those tabs are ugly as can be.
