I have another test build for folks to try out. This fixes a possible error condition that could happen in certain circumstances. This build has two known issues:

  1. There is a lot of flickering when new results show up. This is being tracked in bug 393902.
  2. Your computer will hang for a period of time (it will become responsive again) if you continue to type once no results are found. This is being tracked in bug 503701.

This is built off of a “stable” point of mozilla-central, so it’s like using a 3.6 nightly. All the normal warnings apply about using it. I’m told this greatly increases the speed at which results obtained by many people. If you experience any issues (other than the two listed here), please let me know! The builds can be found here.

It’s been a while, but last week I started working on the asynchronous location bar patch again. The add-on from past posts will not be updated as there are binary changes that need to be made. I do, however, have some test builds that you can try out. These are built of off mozilla-central, so it’s like using a 3.6 nightly. That means it may not be stable, and you shouldn’t use this with your default profile (but feel free to copy your places.sqlite file into a new one to really hammer on it). If you are interested in trying it out, the builds can be found here.

Your feedback is appreciated!
