That web installer is a bit ugly, I hope they can make better.

Wonder if I'll see the new UI in my lifetime? I'm not getting any younger. icon_smile.gif

The next nightly for OS X should support the Apple Colour Emoji font, it seems Apple only coded support for rendering it into the "CoreText" APIs, and since Firefox was using the "CoreGraphics" APIs the pictures just never showed up.

But, now Firefox checks for the presence of the CoreText APIs and uses them if it finds it, so that font will start working now (Although a better solution is to use their SVG in OpenType proposal)

What happened to the 'Tabs On Top' option in Nightly?

I just did a fresh re-install and noticed it's gone ... but I'd prefer to see my Tabs under the Bookmarks Toolbar instead of the default 'On Top'

It's removed from the context menu now , however it exists in about:config.


browser.tabs.onTop
[/CODE]

Thanks for the tip! I was wondering what happened to that as well. They really should bring that context menu option back!!

I might be missing something obvious here, but I can't get the Firefox modern/metro UI to work in Windows 8 Pro. I have tried both tinderbox and regular nightly builds from the Elm branch, and after I make Nightly my default browser, I see the Nightly live tile appear. When I select the tile, I see the blue Firefox splash screen and then it just closes and returns to the Start screen.

Sounds like you're doing everything right, but it's bugging out and crashing

Does Firefox for METRO allow plugins or did it secure itself?

Why is it so dead? :C

Nothings really happening at the time I guess. We're still waiting for downloadmanager, incontent-ui and Australis theme.

Any news about when it might showing up in UX?

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.
