BlueG, are you aware that it makes the memory footprint to grow faster ?
kbrosnan
BlueG: yes

azazul: I suppose the question is whether the benefits outweigh the cost. I'm not saying they do, but I am curious as to what is being discussed for future versions of Firefox.
azazul
well . the "solution" is actually a "quick fix"
because IMO its not addressing the cause of the issue
it was made to prevent whole browser from freezing
dugi
rather you should fix bugs.
azazul
and the fix was "oh .. well .. lets just make it so that each tab is a browser"
BlueG
does it really have any affect on the responsiveness of the interface at all? I had heard that using separate processes facilitated "backgrounding" the other tabs to make the current tab more responsive
are processes still significantly more expensive on Windows than Linux? ESR in TAOUP suggested they were about six times as expensive, though I am not sure in what way or if that is still true.
What about the separate private browsing window? That would actually be nice

Hey, how do I get Firefox to override the Gtk default font colors?
My Gtk font is black on white, and this just doesn't work with Firefox.
er, white on black*

does anyone else find that shared profiles between win32/linux no longer work in 3.5? can someone else confirm? all I get is "cannot open profile because it is in use" non-sense now, even after deleting the .parentlock and killing process
ok, let me try this again, would using a shared profile on a ntfs partition, between 32bit XP and 64 bit linux sunbird/thunderbird/firefox pose an issue?

Hello
Help
caution
how do I choose which virus scanner to use with firefox?
for browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone
Accesshater
why would you have for than one virusscanner
caution
it's not running any scanner
kbrosnan
caution: it requires Windows, and a recent av
caution
kbrosnan: I'm using clamwin, I can't configure it to work with that?
kbrosnan
depends on the av having the correct os hooks
caution
oh that's disappointing
kbrosnan, so there's no way I can set a path to the scanner with the new file as a parameter?
