The Fix is In!

Sunday February 27th, 2000

For those of you on Win9x, grab today's (2-27-00) build. The performance fix is in (the disabling of timing code) that results in a substantial speedup. For example, in today's build, Tinderbox loads in 5 seconds on my line, vs. 14.56 seconds on the 2-25-00 nightly. Reload: 3.9 seconds, vs. 14.23 seconds. Other pages show the same speedup (and you can run two builds side-by-side to see for yourself).


#44 Here's how

Joel, If you want to import all your 4.x settings/information then delete your mozregistry.dat file and run mozilla -installer. The -installer option will open a Profile Manager and selecting one of your old 4.x profiles from the list will let you migrate the profile. You can also run mozilla -ProfileManager at any time to select another 4.x profile or another 5.0 profile you've created. I believe that you must first kill that mozregistry.dat file. Good luck and if this doesn't work for you stop in at #mozillazine on IRC and I'll be glad to help troubleshoot with you.
