Problem is that it performs horribly in 4k and higher.
Libpx use too much resources in comparison to ffvpx

Really? Libpx eats huge resoarce at 1080p even with i7 6950X and GTX Titan X with dx11 acceleration enabled.

Maybe we've gotten a little off-track toward the end of this thread, but nobody's complaining, so I'll keep it going.

I don't know anything about Libpx, libvpx, ffvpx, or whatever, but I have to address Moonchild's statement.

People access the Web using browsers. I have several media players on my machine, but none of them access the Web as a browser and weren't designed to. So if my browser can't function to properly display what it encounters (4K, 8K, whatever) on the Web, what software am I supposed to be using?

It can function, but it simply won't be as efficient as a dedicated media player.
Of note, most dedicated media players DO have capabilities to stream media.

I am wondering why FF52 UXP is slower than FF55.0A UXP.
I compiled with mozbuild . Grabbed code from github. .

Current Basilisk is not in any way Firefox 55.. Also, UXP Take 2 is not in any way ready for useage.. While we have made great progress in the past 18 days or so it is still gonna take a minute. So do some research and cool your jets.
I hate Pod Six. Tch, I don't even know why we have a Pod Six. Total suck Pod.

I wasn't really sure where to ask these questions, so i try it here.

Will PM UPX be the next official PM Browser?

And can it use the same old Firefox Addons as now i can use with PM 27.9.3?

If it was the wrong place please move my posting.

1. yes.
2. yes -- that is exactly what i am doing now: just upgraded from v27 to v28alpha. considering its alpha quality, everything went surprisingly smooth (read: nothing was broken).

this is not Firefox, this is Pale Moon. if it is called "Pale Moon" -- it will look like Pale Moon, feel like Pale Moon, and work like Pale Moon. ;-) at least this is the way devs followed for years, and i trust 'em to keep it this way.

so have no fear, devs are working hard to make sure that there will be little-to-none breakage for users. if it is possible at all.
