Mozilla Fixes Fumbles Faster (Talk about alliteration...)

Recommended Posts

Security Fixes Come Faster With Mozilla

 

Last month, I looked at how long it took Microsoft to issue security updates for known software flaws in the Windows software that powers most of today's computers. Last week, I conducted the same analysis on free software produced by the Mozilla Foundation, perhaps best known for its Firefox Web browser.

 

Over the past year, Mozilla averaged about 21 days before it issued fixes for flaws in Firefox, compared with the 135 days it took for Microsoft to address problems.

Plus, they're just more honest about their problems. IE? Yeah... not so much. But that's just my :angel:

Security fixes might come faster, but they sacrifice Human Interface Guidelines on the Mac version, making it a hideous browser to use.

 

Absolutely true!

Still, there are redeeming features, such as the plugins/extension called DownThemAll and AdBlock.. :D

Then camino would have the same problems as Mozilla. And if Camino did support Ff extesions, Safari would be able to as well :weight_lift:.

I've gone from Firefox to Safari to Camino, and now back to Firefox. It's not without it's problems, but its still way cool. Extensions are great, that's why I use it. I got a nice theme too, which looks heaps better than camino or safari (i cant stand brushed metel sph sph). Too bad RSS doesn't feature, and you can't view pdf's in browser with preview like safari can.

What advantage do you see with camino over firefox? Looks? Well, I installed the UNO 1.3 GUI for OS X. Uno unifies the OS X GUI. I don't like how OS X is so incosistent with the theme. Some things are brushed metal, some things aren't. Uno fixes this.

 

Note: When you install Uno, Firefox's theme still didn't look very good, so I downloaded a firefox Uno theme here: http://www.takebacktheweb.org/ . Every other program I have integrated with Uno perfectly.

    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
