Mozilla & Gecko clones Over the weekend, the crew at Tom's Hardware was busy testing the recently-released Firefox 22 using the usual bevy of benchmarks. This roundup included Chrome 27, Firefox 22, IE10, and Opera 12, along with the new Chromium-based build of Opera Next (alos known as Opera 15).

Well, I guess my profile and all of my coworkers' profiles are fucked up. I'd like to know how to unfuck it ... Or something like that, because if it works for you, there couldn't possibly be any problem with Firefox ...

Firefox is still locking up in the newest release and I don't believe they can do a lot in this regard without making the application run in multiple threads. Cooperative multitasking will always be problematic ...

Well, at least you'll find out as Mozilla continue their efforts to do just that.

Don't let others get to you with this profile stuff, though. Just try a fresh profile, and if it doesn't help, you'll know it's the particular hardware you have, sites you visit (etc).

And if it does help, then that just means there's something wrong with your profiles and you'll have to hope Mozilla can debug it with you or find a way to reset/restart. I had to do it, and it wasn't nearly as painful as I thought, but that was just me.

...or, it's Firefox. Are you kidding me? My primary PC is a ~$4,000 build with dual Xeons which are <1 year old (24 cores total), 48gb memory, two RAID1'd SSD's, ATI fancy something video card, and I only use Firefox lightly for web development (where it shines) so you can't blame my "profile".

It's unusably slow compared to Chrome. Granted, I'm a responsiveness snob, but I'm not that much in the minority with that.
