bww bitwise works GmbH progress update

March 10, 2015 by silvan.scherrer@aroa.ch

*bww bitwise works GmbH progress update February 18, 2015
***


This is the fourth beta release of Firefox for eCS (OS/2) version 24. It contains some UI fixes (makes the "Clear Recent History" dialog and most recent sites' thumbnails on the new tab canvas work again) and makes XUL.DLL finally loadable into high memory.. Also this release uses the new GCC runtime (version 4.9.2) which significantly reduces the size of executables and DLLs and the memory footprint of the running application (by about 5-6 megabytes).


The CHANGES.OS2 <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/blob/FIREFOX_24_8_1esr_RELEASE_OS2_Beta_4/widget/os2/CHANGES.OS2> file contains more detailed list of changes.


The README.OS2 <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/blob/FIREFOX_24_8_1esr_RELEASE_OS2_Beta_4/widget/os2/README.OS2> file contains software requirements and detailed installation instructions.


*IMPORTANT NOTICE*


1.


If you find a bug (which is likely), please create an issue at the
issues page <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/issues>.
But before you create a new issue, be sure it is not already
reported by searching through the existing ones using the Search
field at the top of this page.


2.


When Firefox crashes it creates a trap report that may contain
useful information for the developers. These reports are saved in
|.TRP| files created in the directory where |firefox.exe| is
installed. By default these reports contain only basic information.
In order to make them even more useful (and therefore make a fix for
your problem much more likely) please do the following:


* Install the latest EXCEPTQ runtime from
home.earthlink.net/~steve53/betas/
<home.earthlink.net/%7Esteve53/betas/> (currently, this
one
<home.earthlink.net/%7Esteve53/betas/exceptq-7.11-shl-2014-03-03.zip>
is the latest).
* Install the Firefox symbol files by downloading the
|.symbols.zip| archive from the link below and unzipping it to
the same directory where you installed Firefox.
* Make Firefox crash again and attach the resulting |.TRP| file to
the issue describing your problem.
