Anyone running Firefox 40.0 stable release?
« on: August 12, 2015, 06:22:18 AM »
If I check for update in FF 39.03 it says FF is up to date.  Mozilla.org shows no FF 40.0 stable.  But Snapfiles and Softpedia do.  It gets weirder all the time.

Edit:  Just checked Mozilla again.  Now it has 40.0 for download.  How can they get beat at their own game?  Seems pretty strange.  Check for update is still 40.0 unaware.

I updated to 40.0 via the dialog box a couple hours or so back FWIW.

Choosed menu Help > About
It showed downloading 40.0 and updated OK
Running 40.0 now.

Maybe they have different server for different location of the world.

It just seems strange the way the releases come out.  Lately Cyberfox has been days ahead of Firefox on each update.

40 disabled three of my addons, but they were all well working when re-enabled by Nightly Tester Tools.

I thought the thing about 32 bit software was it could not use up all your CPU :huh:

For yet unknown reasons Mozilla also shut down public access to ftp.mozilla.org. Bah!

32-bit software can't use up all your RAM if you have more than 4GB. (And maybe it was even limited to 2GB per application on 32-bit OSes?)

I believe if you are determined to use up all your ram you can configure the memory above 4 GB as disk cache.  But I never tried it.  I'm not sure if you can do ram disk as well.  I never looked into it that deeply.

Depends on how the application was built - old 32bit Windows applications can only use 2GB (unless they're funky and AWEsome), whereas LARGEADDRESSAWARE linked applications can get really, really close to 4GB on a 64bit system, or 3GB on a 32bit system with that special boot option.

Since they have more than 100 million users, I would expect some staging of updates to occur.
