RE: ADDONS

There is a about:config edit the stops the verify so you can run all your addons. I have been using it forever. Just google it.

Does this look familiar?

Advanced users can disable extension compatibility checking in Firefox by adding the boolean preference "extensions.checkCompatibility" and setting it to false
I did that but I still show all my add-ons as incompatible.

Normally I would expect to go to help ---> check for updates to prompt the add-on update.. but it appears the beta does not have that feature.

Even attempting to install the nightly tester tools doesn't work because that is not compatible either.

Ken, are you running the latest beta and can you run your add-ons?

I'm hoping to find a fix for this since my fingerprint software also adds an extension so that it can work within FF and presently, it obviously won't work.

Humm.... if I can't load my extensions.. I might as well be using Chrome.... according to peacekeeper, its about twice as fast as FF.
I did a test between 3.65.10 32 bit and the latest FF beta 64bit .... I"m on my laptop with wireless 5.3G connection, cable internet running an intel multicore I7 720 processor.
Here are my results..
3366 points for minefield with peacekeeper.
2550 points for 3.6.10 2470 second time.

Looks like Chrome 7.0.5 runs twice as fast according to their benchmarks.....

It depends on the add-on, most will not work yet but Adblock works fine. Not sure about the others because this is the most important to me. If I really need an add-on then I just use Firefox 3.6.10 (x86).

I am playing with Chrome but only on my laptop which is x86. I want to run x64 browser as default unless there is an insurmountably issue, thus Minefield as default.

While Chrome may be technically faster, the difference really isn't that apparent so, I tend to stick with Firefox/Minefield. After 22 months of Wildblue internet (My old ISP) any browser on TransWorld Network (My new ISP) is fast, fast, fast.

I do love a lot of the addons FF offers.... If we can figure a way to get the addons to load onto FF 64bit, we have a winner... otherwise, I'm tempted to just use Chrome and then use FF whenever I need the add-ons for some thing special.

Of course, Chrome does have its own extensions its working on... something to consider if FF beta doesn't provide a way to install add-ons.

I'm just not convinced FF64bit is much slower than 32bit Chrome.....

I'm still trying to figure a way to get addons to load to FF prebuild.

Yeah, same here. It's still necessary to leave the "javascript.options.methodjit.content" entry set to "false."

Interesting thing I found today, I uninstalled both Firefox and Minefield including my profile info and reinstalled both Minefield X64 and Firefox 4.0 beta 6 from scratch. I went into about:config and found these entries loaded by default

"javascript.options.methodjit.content" (true)
"javascript.options.methodjit.chrome" (false)

Both seem to be working fine at the moment

After updating minefield to latest version, problem returned. Had to set "methodjit.content" back to false

Thanks, Blongs, that is interesting. I'm might give it a shot and see what happens.

You no longer have a crashing issue with leaving the default "methodjit.content" set to "true?"

Currently, the "methodjit.content" entry on my set-up is showing "true" to be the default, just as you have indicated (I have to change it to "false to prevent crashing), whereas the "methodjit.chrome" is showing "false" to be the default, just as you have indicated.

I quit running the 32 bit version of FF a while ago. I don't even have it installed any longer.

EDIT: An uninstall and a re-install from scratch didn't work for me. I still have to go into safe mode and set the "methodjit.content" entry to "false."

Sorry, after updating minefield it went back to same problem. Had to change "methodjit.content" back to false to prevent crashes.
