    Yep, they changed something on Youtube for sure. Just checked on two of my rigs, one with official FF 37.0.2 32bit (Win7 x64 SP1) and other with official FF 38.0 Beta 9 (Win8.1 Pro x64) and both FF are playing Youtube vids via HTML5.

    As a bonus both rigs now can play 60fps Youtube vids like that one dk_lightning (first of his own and that Corvette video) has posted here:

    Is there anything special about Firefox 38.05? It installed that POS add-on Pocket and disabled Firefox's own read it later feature.

    Just noticed a small bug in FF 38.0 32bit: can't close Firefox via X in up-right corner, had to close it via Taskbar.

    Switched to FF 38.0 32bit yesterday and today on 8 of my PCs at home and office (9 more left to go, only one of my HTPCs I'm using FF 38.0.5 Beta V2 64bit) and this bug affected only two of those PCs switched to FF 38.0 32bit: one with Win7 Ultimate SP1 x64 at home and other one with WinXP SP3 Professional x86 at office.

    Other 6 PC's with FF 38.0 32bit are not affected by this bug... probably the're going to fix it in next release.

    Anyone else?

    Finally, YouTube through Firefox supports 1080p60 fully. About time, it took Mozilla long enough!

    Sadly, I've grown very fond of Chrome and now use that over Firefox as my main browser. Firefox unfortunately could be a bit buggy with certain websites and combined with the lack of 60 fps YouTube support was the reason I abandoned it for the far more stable and feature-packed Chrome.

    You took the words right out of my mouth :) I was like: I want my old Options menu back.... few minutes later: why they didn't changed to this much earlier?

    This router-like Options menu is more than fine with me, much cleaner look, but can't find Facebook Like button anywhere ;)

    pcxfirefox 38.0.1 is release

    [​IMG]


    changelog
    pcxFirefox 38.0.1 x64 SSE2 edition Features: 1) Optimize for x64 CPU 2) Introduce multithread load and portable feature ( set Portable=1 in tmemutil.ini to enable the portable feature ) 3) Implement config.trim_on_minimize on Vista+ OS again, but set it to false by default 4) Provide a tmemutil alternative open source module, whose source code is hosted in https://bitbucket.org/xunxun/tmemutil-3rd ( initial upstream source code comes from https://code.google.com/p/libportable/source/browse/ ). My tmemutil-3rd may not be synchronized updating with libportable, if you want to use latest libportable, you can download http://sourceforge.net/projects/libportable/files/Tools/portable_bin.7z/download , and rename portable32.dll or portable64.dll to tmemutil.dll 5) Enable internal plugin white list ( see http://bbs.kafan.cn/thread-1757700-1-1.html ) 6) Implement System Clock Tweak Experimental Feature ( details below, may be changed in future editions ) 7) Implement SmartRAM Experimental Feature ( details below, may be changed in future editions ) 8) Add Google GEO API Key ( You can test it from http://mozqa.com/data/firefox/geolocation/position.html and https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/examples/map-geolocation, other custom build may lack this feature ) 9) Add Google Oauth API Key ( You can test it from Firefox Hello import contacts service, other custom build may lack this feature ) 10) Support Bundled Fonts, in favour of Portable fonts ( --enable-bundled-fonts, put your fonts to firefox/fonts, then you can find the fonts in firefox options ) Build Method Improvement BetterPGO About System Clock Tweak Experimental Feature System Clock Rate ( abbreviated as SCR below ) Tweak Provide some about:config options to modify SCR at startup 1) pcxfirefox.scr.enabled : The option control whether to modify SCR, whose default value is true ( Enabled SCR modifying at startup ). 2) pcxfirefox.scr.always : The option control whether to modify SCR if you use Battery Power, whose default value is false ( If you use Battery Power, set scr.always to false wont modify SCR, if you set it true, that will ignore Power type detect. ) pcxfirefox.scr.timer : The option provides Battery Power detecting period ( unit is second ), when reaching this time, detecing your Power Type again to do the behavior depending on pcxfirefox.scr.always About SmatRAM Experimental Feature Control your present RAM Provide some about:config options related with SmartRAM at startup 1) pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart : The option controls whether to enable SmartRAM feature, whose default value is true ( Enabled SmartRAM at startup ). 2) pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic : The option controls different memory trim methods, whose default value is true, when it is true, then pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic.min and pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic.ratio is valid. pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic.min : The option controls SmartRAM dynamic method's minimized memory you want, whose default value is 128 MB. pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic.ratio : The option controls SmartRAM dynamic method's the memory ratio you want, whose default value is 80, which means when hitting SmartRAM dynamic method event, the memory will be released to the 80% of the firefox.exe's present memory. 3) pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.keep : The option controls SmartRAM keep method's memory size, whose default value is 512 MB, which meanswhen hitting SmartRAM event, the memory will be released to 512 MB. When pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic is false, the option is valid. 4) pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.timer : The option provides SmartRAM event period ( unit is second ), whose default value is 3600 seconds. CAUTION: dont't set pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.dynamic.ratio, pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.keep, and pcxfirefox.memory.firefox.smart.timer to a very small value, if you really want a small value, please use them at your own risk ( which will greatly increased your OS's I/O pressure )! About tmemutil.dll It is mine public fork from libportable, and I make it compatible with tete009's tmemutil.dll The setting file is also tmemutil.ini, you can see tmemutil-sample.ini for an example The tmemutil.dll's new feature compared to tete009's tmemutil.dll is 1) Security Enhancements ( SafeEx=1 ), if you don't know what it is, you should keep SafeEx=0 2) Process White List ( Prevent some API hook and Browser overflow attacks, EnableWhiteList=1 ), if you don't know what it is, you should keep EnableWhiteList=0 3) Provide another two Environment Variables ( TmpDataPath and NpluginPath ) 4) Provide Bosskey function ( Bosskey=1 ), you can refer to https://code.google.com/p/cppinfo/wiki/about_portable_configuration_file?tm=6#热键使用 5) Provide another portable mode ( Nocompatete=1 ), whose portable path is very shallow


    Download
