'[OT] FireFox 3.5'

Not so long ago I was ranting about FireFox on Linux which was very slow
with some web sites -- especially with Gmail while scrolling down the page
using the mouse wheel.
Now with the brand new version 3.5 it seems that the issue disappeared...
Also it occupies around 140MB of memory compared to the 3.0x which needs
over 200MB.

Just thought some of you would wonder of this.

I've been trying 3.5 this morning under XP, and rendering speed has very
noticeably improved.  I like the "add tab" button they have stolen from
IE7/8 as well.

If you have jerky two-dimensional graphics the issue is more likely
your graphics driver in the case of a not-well-supported OS like
Linux.

I believe the graphics card and the drivers are ok -- at least I can play 3D
games at 120fps on a 1280x1024 screen so I guess that should be ok for a
simple 2D rendering machine like FireFox as well.

Anyway, I think it was a problem with the old Gecko engine so they had
issues with some DHTML powered pages but with this new version it seems that
everything is fine.

I am curious why my Firefox didn't upgrade to 3.5 all by itself this time?

There might be some clever way to decrease the server load when a new
release is there. If you choose the "check for upgrade" manually from the
help menu it should do that straight away (on Windows, because on Linux you
might have to do it in other ways)

nVidia what? There's a reason.

Maybe because it's a major upgrade. Just a guess.

Thanks Tamas.
You are right. Now my FireFox is downloading the 3.5.
I am currently using the 3.0.11. Curious what makes a big jump to 3.5? Any important new features?

My 'check for update' is dimmed out in 3.0.11 ... and update manager doesn't
catch it either.  Guess it's off to the website after work.

Some Linux distros have that disabled so you use the package from
their repository.
