"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."

I'm using mozilla nightly (buil ID : 2000020608) right now.

It's national holiday Feb. 4 to 6 here in Korea, (lunar New Year's Day) and I didn't have an internet connection since Feb 2.

I was surprised that Mozilla has changed a lot in just 5 days. It feels like a different app. It renders faster and smoother, and just feels better.

My only performance wish is the file cache. I don't know the bug ID, (I'm too lazy :) but if it's checked in, I could advocate Mozilla more firmly in my company.

Go Mozilla!
