Just because it's called Nightly doesn't mean you have to compile it nightly. I compile it once a week and it werks for me.

I don't want that level of telemetry OP. I'm used to firefox and all its features but I'm not into the idea of having to contribute anything to mozilla, ever. I want them to do all the work for me for free, that's what they deserve.

What's portage?
same optimizations
Simple enough, -O3 -march=native and PGO. That's all you need.

Portage is Gentoo's package manager

Interesting. I've no idea how it works.
Save your profiles. Or just overwrite the binaries and dynamic libraries.

What optimizations is it you can get with release Firefox through Portage but not with nightly Firefox? You can use the mozconfig to specify CFLAGS and enable PGO+LTO.

David Morgan
David Morgan

specify CFLAGS and enable PGO+LTO.
What is PGO and LTO and how do I enable/utilise them?

Tyler Smith
Tyler Smith

LTO=Link Time Optimization, so this is optimization that takes place at link-time whereas CFLAGS (and the rest) are for compile-time

PGO=Profile Guided Optimization, basically some optimizations are only possibly if the compiler knows what the program will do during execution so first you compile a debug version that gathers a lot of data, then you run the program in a way that represents typical use (for Firefox it runs some benchmarks) and then you compile the program again using this data to get a build, that if you did things right, will be slightly faster than without PGO

If you're using binary version (pre-compiled) it's already enabled and there's nothing you need to do.

Affirmative. But how do I actually make use of them? I've the source code at hand.

Thomas Cox

How long ago was it? How did you enable PGO?

PGO = add

ac_add_options MOZ_PGO=1
to mozconfig
LTO = add
ac_add_options --enable-lto=thin
to mozconfig

Chase Nelson
Chase Nelson

I was under the impression I must build firefox with PGO and LTO, use it for 15-20 minutes, then rebuild it with the optimisations database.

Angel Powell

Lincoln Hernandez

Juan Butler

--enable-lto=thin basically just adds -flto=thin to CFLAGS. By default Firefox is built with Clang. Gentoo can build with GCC but I haven't figured out how because if I simply change CC and CXX it won't work... as for PGO, if you set MOZ_PGO=1 it first compiles Firefox, then launches various benchmarks to gather profile data and finally recompiles Firefox using the profile data. You can of course do this manually if you want and maybe do more representative real-world use than benchmarks.

Robert Richardson

Oh cool so it's automatic. Based.

Christopher Kelly

Unless you take the steps to set it to have no unsolicited connections with a user.js so your settings persist across updates. Or you can use a shitty fork with slower security updates being downstream or go with the botnet known as Chrome.

Oliver Reyes

Read this if you're serious about building it from source: developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Build_Instructions

It takes a while to build because with PGO you have to compile it twice. My old Phenom II X4 does it in ~4 hours. Gonna upgrade to Ryzen just want to wait a month or two for initial Zen 2 bugs to be fixed.

A lot of updates for any program are bullshit that don't affect 99% of the users. Most are bullshit translation fixes, useless features that aren't even exposed unless you dig deep into hidden settings, or spyware/tracking disgused as critical fixes.

Yes, it's faster than Ungoogled Chrome with the same add-ons as Chrome will legit hang when opening a tab in the background.

This is the security patches that were done in the latest ESR release. Icecat was 12 days behind Firefox to update. That's not that long, but I rather customize my user.js myself on Firefox to make no unsolicited connections with various fingerprinting mitigations and get security updates when they release. Also I don't need that Icecat add-on bloat. Can you even remove their extensions?

Hunter Diaz
Hunter Diaz

No methods, just didn't notice actual speed differences. Again, IceCat doesn't have any of the issues I had with both ungoogled chrome & Vivaldi with the same exact add-ons. I'd take a slightly slower browser over one that literally hangs for numerous seconds whenever opening a tab in the background.

Liam Collins
Liam Collins

I don't understand what you're saying. In the background?

Grayson Taylor
Grayson Taylor

opening a tab but having it set so you don't automatically switch focus to that tab. this causes the tab and browser as a whole to hang for numerous seconds on certain sites including Jow Forums catalog view.
