Mozilla Performance, And How To Help

"We need your help to improve Mozilla's performance.

  • We need help identifying more tasks that seem slow.
  • We need help generating data that demonstrates Mozilla's performance, especially in comparison with other browsers.
  • We need help generating profiling data.

If you want to help, please read these instructions to see what you should put in a performance bug report, and for how to use jprof, the freely available profiling tool for Mozilla that runs on RedHat 6.1. If you can already build Mozilla on RedHat 6.1, you can generate profiling data.

If you have Quantify, check out these instructions for installing, building, and running with Quantify. These tips may also be helpful to you.

If you are on MacOS, get the Mac Instrumentation SDK, and read these tips for profiling Mozilla on MacOS.

If your favorite performance problem isn't on the list of known performance problems, please let us know."


#10 GIFs Broken in Build 2000020410?

Finally updated my nightly build, but it appears GIFs are broken :(

However, I find Moz runs nicely on my Celeron 400/64MB RAM/NT4 :)

Java - Installed JRE 1.3.0 release and now Moz crashes whenever it hits a java applet (I use <http://java.sun.com> as a good example). Nice App, good work to date, just not finished :P
