5 seconds is nothing compared to 60 a few years ago, though O.O

Hayleia

Yeah but 0 seconds is a better nothing :P

Also, in case c4ooo didn't see:

Hayleia   c4ooo, if you think I want "no history" because I'm paranoid, that's not the case at all
Hayleia   I don't care one bit if Chrome (or whatever) records my data
Hayleia   all I want is that everytime I do something for the second time, it's the same as the first time
Hayleia   so that's why I don't want purple links for example, because they were not purple the first time

You might be able to get some similar functionality from this Chrome flag (chrome://flags/#bypass-app-banner-engagement-checks) but it sounds like a cookie problem more than a history thing for first time popups or whatever.
Living in another world to you.



Also in case you were wondering Frankie did go to Hollywood

Heh, I checked my "Firefox vs Chrome.txt" file on my PC to remind me of why I was switching to Chrome, and when I saw that Firefox was winning 6-1 (the only advantage of Chrome being speed), I switched back to Firefox, so everyone can just forget about this topic :P

And after removing some unnecessary extensions, Firefox now boots in 2 seconds. Which is still worse than 0 but better than 5. And while navigating, yeah, it's still slower than Chrome but just a bit, and the 6 lines of advantages perfectly justify that one drawback...

You're honestly a huge meme :D Have fun on fx :P

glad your problem is more or less "solved" now ^^

lol, you did not told us that !

But if you're crazy enough, seriously try building your own optimised build of Firefox like so :
./configure  CFLAGS+="-march=native -Ofast" CXXFLAGS+="-march=native -Ofast" LDFLAGS="-flto"
Gentoo people said making your own build signicantly makes Firefox boot up faster.
(even more so if you disable some dependencies at configure time)

Well, now that I deleted them, I don't have them on the list :P
But I remember that one of them was VideoDownloadHelper. I stopped using it since it stopped working with Youtube, so there was no reason to keep it. And there was also TreeStyleTabs, which was funny and stuff, but not really necessary since I don't often have enough tabs to justify grouping them.

Well, now it sometimes boots in 2 seconds, sometimes in 3 and sometimes in 5 ???
Whatever. I actually can't count and Firefox wins 7-1, not 6-1 so I still stick with Firefox :P

I may try that whenever I have 3 weeks of free time to compile it :P
Though I guess I'll have to compile it myself for every update?

There was something about compiling it with a modified version of sqlite as well. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=933260#p933260

Who wants disgusting stuff? I do.
Use the following bash script at startup to basically run a Firefox instance in the background, allowing all future windows (except if of a new instance) to open in 0 seconds.
Yes this is disgusting, I warned you. Even the script still has echoes that no one reads lol. I don't care, at least Firefox has a solution to its problem unlike Chrome.

waitandhideff () {
i="0"
while [ $i -lt 1000 ]; do
i=$[$i+1]
WINDOW=$(xdotool search --classname Navigator)
if [ -z "$WINDOW" ];then
echo "nothing"
else
sleep 1
xdotool windowunmap $WINDOW
break
fi
done
}
waitandhideff &
firefox &

aeTIos

absolutely disgusting, but a nice hack ;D

Nice one, I actually auto start my browser and keep it open all the time so I've never really cared about startup times.

p2

I can't believe how much work you put in these 2 seconds of startup time ;D They must really annoy you xD
But good work Hayleia  :thumbsup:
