Ok.I have a problem with the Nightly ever since 6.1a landed.In a forum there is a "view first new post" button when a new post is made,but when i click it,it redirects me to the same post every time.But when i clear the cache it redirects me correctly to the last new post.Any idea what is causing this and a possible fix/workaround(other than clearing the cache before visiting the forum)?

Seems there have been a number of rendering performance improvements. There surely is a need for more of them.

They're for "basic layers", which is only used when the GPU on the computer sucks or the drivers are blacklisted for one reason or another.

Also, Site-Specific preferences have landed for the next nightly, which is cool.

Around the 24th of May. Nightly will then be bumped to 7.0.

Really waiting for this bug fix to appear:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=552864

It will improve startup time...According to one guy, it makes startup time to just 3 second on cold start and 2 second on warm start...

Though negative response doesn't mean 'later'. It's an experiment.

Yes, that's what it says. Looks like some tweaks will be needed.

Are all of you guys using Linux? That appears to be a Linux-only bug, and while I rarely use Linux I've never really experienced slow load times with Firefox on Ubuntu. Takes 2 to 3 seconds for me.

With Windows it's a different story - at least on a cold start. It starts in less than a second with a warm start for me.

Does the latest nightly have the smooth animation for moving tabs, or is it still being worked on? I know someone posted a link to a test version with it, but I'm wondering if there's a newer version out now? Also, when is the first beta and final of 6 coming out? I'm not rushing things, just curious on the timeframe.

Barring any bugs, Firefox 6 should support WebSockets (they updated to the latest spec, so no security issues) and "EventSource" (better known as Server-Sent Events), which is awesome.

Linux was mentioned extensively with a little of Mac OS. I didn't see any mention of Windows ...

Fx5 moved to beta channel last week. Fx6 is moving to Aurora this week. Fx7 will then be the nightly.

(Next time both should occur at about the same time, so there won't be a week where Aurora and Beta are the same)
