Firefox Quantum

Recommended Posts

Wow

I've started using it and I'm really impressed with how fast and responsive it is. Tab switching and startup is instant. On my PC, Chrome lags when scrolling on YouTube or on some sites occasionally, but on Quantum, everything feels buttery smooth. Design is quite nice and not in our face. RAM usage is way lower than Chrome, too.

It'll be released on November 14, but a beta and dev edition is available if you want to test and see for yourself.

I do agree, very nice and snappy browser.

Btw, even though I use windows at work and Chrome just runs smooth, I had to turn off "Use hardware acceleration" at home on my iMac due to lags problem on scrolling.

Have been using the nightlies for a little while now and, yes, it's a much better browser. Firefox is evolving really quickly. One of my only nitty-gritty's is the text-rendering engine. Seems too native, and I've come to love the way DirectWrite does things - much smoother. The new chrome (as in the Quantum window controls) is much better as well. Finally, e10s is built right in, and everything is much snappier.

      This morning a client contacted me with a strange problem. At first I couldn't reproduce it because I use Chrome but then I realized that it only affects Firefox and CKE fields.
      If you type some text and then press SHIFT+ENTER to insert a <br> then wirte some text in the second line and then place the cursor at the start of the second line and hit backspace, the cursor jumps to the wrong position. The clients content editors are extremely frustrated by this because they have to search for the cursor 
      I can reproduce this behavior in almost all PW versions, even a clean install witout any CKE plugins.
      This whole behavior seems somehow familiar, like I have heard it before, but I can't remenber...

      Anyone knows a solution except using Chrome?

      Hi there,
      I'm experiencing a real weird caching issue with Safari (Desktop) and all mobile browsers where it is loading the old version of the site and refusing to reload the website.
      I don't seem to have the problem with Chrome where a reload did correctly reload the latest version of the website.
      Has anyone come across this issue before?
       
      Things I have tried (and failed) :
      1) I've replaced our .htaccess file with the standard one that comes with Processswire 2.8
      2) Everything here
      https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1922910/force-browser-to-clear-cache
      3) Deleted everything under /assets/pwpc folder. 
      4) Deleted all local wesbite data on laptop/mobile and reloaded.

      Much appreciate if anyone can help me

      Hello for all,
      I have a small problem with my portfolio (Portfolio). When scrolling and sliding to the right, the content always jumps slightly. I could test it on chrome and safari. In Mozilla, however, the error does not occur. Maybe someone has a tip since I am still a beginner and does not know where the error comes.
      Many Thanks

      Setup:
      PW version 2.7.1 dev template cache is disabled Chrome Canary is opened with disabled cache and in inkognito view mode When I make a change to a template file (say the basic home.php) I want to immediately see that change after refreshing the browser. Example:
      This is the content of home.php:
      <?php echo "bla"; I browse to the root page and see the "bla" output.
      I change the code to
      <?php echo "bla1"; and save the file. After that I immediately reload the page in the browser and I don’t see the change to "bla1". Only after multiple browser reloads (at times also more than 20 reloads) and "hard" reloads does the change appear. 
      What I tried to do:
      set $config->dbCache, $config->sessionFingerprint and $config->sessionChallenge to false in config.php delete all sessions re-save the page in the ProcessWire backend and reload the browser page completely delete the browser history (cookies, cache, everything) after the first visit to the page Nothing helped.
      Questions:
      Can someone replicate this behavior? What can I do to achieve the desired behavior? Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

      Howdey!
      Over the last weeks, I had some critical thoughts about processwires ui/ux feeling (relative sizing, overflow-x, hover-states, word-wrap:break-word) but also its stability.
      Last night I had the time to setup some new things. Good point for me to fiddle a bit around, with issues I've seen over the last months...
      ...short break:
      A lot of bugs, I've noticed earlier, are gone...
      @allcontributors I ♥ you!
      However, someone left over some bugs, for me ;-)
      I just ended up with an ugly and unstructured markdown file. No issues or pull-requests via git. The biggest reason, most things are between "bug" and "enhancement" or are just too platform specific. I think, it's better to talk about those stumbling blocks first.
      Ok, enough for now.
      As I said, it's markdown, to see the compiled thing, take this: https://gist.github.com/yckart/62b7b2ed9d0e3845cc4b
      # Bugs - Mobile (iOS 8) ## Navigation closes immediately **Description** Menu opens (for less than ~100ms) and closes immediately again. **Reproduce** Click on the upper left menu icon, scroll a bit down (~10px), click menu icon again. Try to open the menu. ## "Add New"-menu unclosable **Description** Shortcut-menu to add new pages, can not closed again with "Add Menu"-button. **Reproduce** Click on "Add New" (is open), click again to close (is still open). **Solution** It's something about the hover-state in mobile safari. Adding `ontouchstart` to `<body>` could help. Better, listen for events and change states via javascript. ## ProcessLister not reachable **Description** Lister (filter/related) is not "reachable". **Reproduce** 1. Open backend on iOS. 2. Try to find/reach "lister" and "recent-pages" **Solution** Add a dropdown-menu with infinite levels of nesting. See also [#show-fullpage](#show-fullpage) ## <a name="input-auto-zoom-bug">#</a> Input auto zoom bug **Description** If an input gets the focus, the page will zoomed in a bit. Causes horizontal scrollbars. See also [#horizontal-overflow](#horizontal-overflow) **Reproduce** Focus a text input element in the backend. **Solution** `html { text-size-adjust: 100%; }` **References** - http://stevenosloan.com/articles/2013/prevent-zooming-on-forms/ - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2989263/disable-auto-zoom-in-input-text-tag-safari-on-iphone ## <a name="horizontal-overflow">#</a> Horizontal overflow **Description** Causes horizontal overflow on some pages, mostly because of long words/text. See also [#input-auto-zoom-bug](#input-auto-zoom-bug) **Reproduce** View "ProcessPageEditImageSelect"-configuration page **Solution** `word-wrap: break-word` ## SystemNotifications ghost doesn't break words **Description** Ghosts do not break long text on iOS. **Solution 1** It's something with `position: fixed; width: 100%` and `position: fixed; left: 0; right: 0;`. **Solution 2** I've seen some problems with `word-wrap: break-word`, I think there are some bugs related to this topic. See also [#horizontal-overflow](#horizontal-overflow) ## ProcessPageSearchForm too small **Description** Input field is a bit too small, for my eyes. --- # UI/UX ## ProcessPageEditImageSelect image not scaled **Description** The currently edited image in modal is not scaled down. We are able to define dimensions (e.g. 800x600), it seems that the image will get exactly this pixel-values as dimension-properties, makes the thing feel not that responsive as it could/should. **Reproduce** 1. Open page with image field attached 2. Click an image (larger than the device viewport) to open modal. **Solution** Haven't looked deep in it, but something like this should help: `img { max-width: 100% ...` ## PageTable ### Drag breaks layout **Description** Dragged item is not longer in box-model (due `position:absolute`) and visually breaks the table. **Reproduce** Move cursor over table item > hold mousedown and drag ~1px. **Solution 1** Create clone and move this instead of original PageTableField. **Solution 2** Save offset, before the PageTableField gets `position: absolute`. ### PageTable optional sorting **Description** Sorting via drag-and-drop should be optional. Currently we can say that items added to PageTable are "pre-sorted" with `Inputfield_sortfields`, but they are furthermore sortable via drag-and-drop. **Solution** Add "Sortable via drag-and-drop"-option to PageTable ## NotificationBug alignment/position **Description** It's annoying to have the NotificationMenu-toggler move always up/down (and it looks a bit too "floaty" in my eyes). **Solution** Move the NotificationBug right to search form and "fix" (not `fixed`) it at the top. --- # Feature requests ## <a name="show-fullpage">#</a> Show fullpage **Description** It could be helpful to be able to switch (on mobiel devices) between mobile- and desktop version. **Solution** Add "Show fullpage"-link to footer ## Inline time picker on datetime field **Description** If the date picker is inlined (always visible) theres no time picker available. ## <a name="line-trough-draft-pages-asmselect">#</a> Line trough draft pages AsmSelect **Description** In PageLister a page with status "draft" is striked (~~line-through~~), should be the same in asmSelect (if "Allow unpublished pages" is enabled). See also [#asm-page-state](#asm-page-state) **Reproduce** 1. Enable draft pages on PageTable. 2. Change page status to draft. 3. Open the referenced page and view select-field item. ## <a name="asm-page-state">#</a> Indicate page-states in asmSelect **Description** Each state could visualized with different styles. See also [#line-trough-draft-pages-asmselect](#line-trough-draft-pages-asmselect) **Solution** - draft > ~~line-through~~ - hidden > opacity - locked > *italic* ## Image-reference selection **Description** Selecting already uploaded images, from any page, is a must have! **Solution** Indri is one great tool for this, https://github.com/ikayzo/indri ## Create page once **Description** It should be a possibility to create pages (one the same tree-level) just once, instead of renaming to "duplicate-page-name-1". **Reproduce** 1. Create new page with name "foo". 2. Create another page with name "foo". 3. Now you have "foo" and "foo-1". **Solution** Add "Singular"-option to templates to let us decide what we want. If this option-field is ticked later, on page edition show notification if page with name "foo" already exists and don't save, or ask what todo. ## Pre-select site-profile **Description** If there's just one site-profile to install, use it. ## Show full version number on installation **Description** During installation the version in footer-section is trimmed e.g. 2.5.29 => 2.5 ## Dynamically enable field deletion **Description** Ajax-check to enable "Delete field" after valid change on "Action"-tab.
