    Thank you.
    Just one issue: version 34.0.5 says: “Default is incompatible with Firefox 34.0” under Appearance section.

      Maybe something is wrong with my 34.0.5 build script, and you can modify browser/extensions/{972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd}/install.rdf to set 34.0.5 to 34.0. I think it’s not a big problem, and my internet speed is very slow, so I decide not to upload the fix edition. Or you can use my 34.0 edition, the two edition has not the difference if you don’t use en-US and you are not in USA timezone.

        If it’s just a minor flaw and does not affect the overall performance, I’ll use the 34.0.5 version, though.

        Thank you.

      I have not adopted the Version Control, so generating the patches will cost much more time and I/O pressure. But my all editions’ patches are very the similar, and you can find them from https://github.com/xunxun1982/pcxfirefox.

        outdated patches are not classed as source code

        comodo is legally obligated to provide the modified source code under the MPL2.0 does the MPL2.0 apply hear that’s what Mozilla code is license under.

        Even palemoon supplies the source so does waterfox ?
        Showing the modified code shows you have nothing to hide as its not hard to zip up the source when finished building.

          If you have a slow speed Internet, and cost 10 hours for uploading every edition’s prebuilt build, and will cost another 1 day for uploading the whole source code, what will you consider?
          And I only want to make the build as a try build of Mozilla Firefox ( adopt the patches I have posted on mozilla bugzilla ), so I don’t consider to make another new branding.
          So I want to cost more time on more meaningful things such as mozilla code debugging and study, not to take the building, copying, uploading as my life time.
          Of course, if my network and build environment is improved, I will upload the patches or the code in future. ( I am prone to upload the patches not the whole code, because the builder is very easy to hide their thought on the whole code. )

        regardless of the time there still is a obligation the patches posted don’t for fill the obligation
        any how i was going to contribute by patching a very serious bug you have in your latest release but to do so i would need the modified source code which clearly are reluctant to release it does take that long to upload 150mb you do that each release. just package in .tar then decompress with .bz2 under 180mb easy.

        you have a very serious bug in this 34.0.5 i am just sorry i could not help.

          My Internet is not stable, so you’d better split into some small package when uploading it. When uploading my prebuilt buld, I always follow upload/timeout/upload again/timeout/restore.
          Can you describe the bug?

        sounds more like not willing with something to hide but hey can’t prove you are can’t see the code you can’t prove your not because can’t provide the code ether way under Mozilla license
        you can legally distribute compiled code with there trademarks branding i.e firefox logos firefox.exe named firefox.exe and so forth you may want to check your legal position on your obligations.

        the bug well that’s easy multiple stackhash exceptions crashing caused by total memory of the array is larger then what is assigned you need to assign the memory first what happens is the arrays memory is larger the is container the container needs to be assigned the size before the array is placed inside.

        you have memory jitters when hitting over 500mb the browser gets memory jitters part of the main bug

          I have not made an independent product ( even I didn’t redirect useragent or something, which won’t influence Mozilla’s Web flow or any money earn way ), so I don’t plan to change anything, and it is only a custom build by me, everyone has the decision whether to use the build. The reason I built is only that I felt there were a lot perf improvement other builders have not adopted. I only want to make the build for myself, and solve the bug I can reproduce, try to commit the patch to Mozilla and make Firefox better and better.

    Just discovered/began using pcxfirefox…how does one establish it as the default browser? Attempts to do so from within the normal options menu aren’t retained as it appears the “stock” Firefox still captures that request. Thanks.

      But I can use the option to make it default browser, of course you should make sure you haven’t deleted firefox/uninstall/helper.exe

    No, that file/folder structure is still intact.

    Perhaps I “installed” incorrectly? I merely decompressed the installation package and copied the files over into a new folder within “Program Files”. I called this folder “pcxfirefox” (seemed like an appropriate name).

    Did I do something wrong with the proper installation of this program and its associated files?

      It seems the method is right, so I have no idea. You can use other custom build or use official edition directly.
