I was able to build it but we have to test it.

Code: Select all

./mach run
(tests completed build with scratch profile)

Code: Select all

./mach package
(creates the self contained archive which you'll find in Arctic-Fox-master/obj-ff-dbg/dist)

This is great news!
Did you disable javascript? Is this necessary to build?

Casey,

I tried it. The strange thing is, that all websites work including Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. I thought they need javascript.

Cheers,

Nice! Do you mind if I package your binary for inclusion in Fienix?

Well it doesn't get any sweeter than this! Works a treat and is fast and so far rock solid. Downloads work, banking sites work as do FB et al. A very big thank you and well done. Tested on Fienix, will test on UB16.04 and Remix later.

Arcticfox runs on Ubuntu 16.04, everything works as under Fienix. Funny thing is under Fienix Youtube works but with no sound (pulseaudio was not complied in) but under 16.04 Youtube with sound works fine! Sweet.

In order to have sound, and much better video quality, activate Greasemonkey and VLC Plugin. If you are using Fienix these are already installed and you only need to activate them from Arctic Fox: Tools > Add Ons, then then from Extensions activate Greasemonkey and from Plugins activate VLC.
You may have to re-install ViewTube from http://sebaro.pro/viewtube/?ln=en

Wow! Arctic Fox is Amazing! Sites that would slow my system on Firefox speed along just fine with Arctic Fox! We are so lucky to have this browser!
