I am using Firefox Developer Edition because I need the browser toolbox features for my work creating add-ons. However, I really like speed boost from the new experimental multi-process feature (electrolysis/e10s).

I've seen lots of articles showing going to about:preferences in Nightly, but that check box doesn't appear in Dev Edition. I was thinking it might be possible to enable it via about:config...can I do that? I seem to remember a way, but can't find it anymore.

Is there any way to get E10S in other versions of Firefox besides Nightly?

  • It sounds like the experimental feature has not made it to that release yet. Can't enable a feature that has not been added yet. – Ramhound May 14 '15 at 0:11
  • @Ramhound : That is what I would expect, except that I've used it before in Aurora. I guess you're suggesting it's been removed. That would be sad. – Robbie Wxyz May 14 '15 at 3:54
