bww bitwise works GmbH progress update

eComStationNews.com - Tue, 20150310 - 08:31 -0600

*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.
