Re: Xfinity streaming isn't compatible with latest Slimjet?

30.0.4.0 is loaded with bugs.

Report it here ==> https://www.slimjet.com/en/onlinefb.htm

Then back up to the previous version.

On the toolbar, the Shop at Amazon and Shop on eBay buttons will appear on the toolbar after you visit the associated website.

Re: Facebook videos stop after 3 seconds only with slimjet

30.0.4.0 is loaded with bugs.

I went back to version 29.0.3.0 and all is OK for now.

I'm waiting hopefully for the next big update, and if that doesn't do the trick goodbye Slimjet.

Re: Slimjet versions 30.0.1.0 and 30.0.2.0 high cpu usage

Haven't had any problems just reinstalling it without deleting anything.
And again after checking out 30.0.4.0

Always backing up profiles on general principles, but did not need to do any emergency recovery with them.

I'll post any problems if they arise.

Re: Slimjet versions 30.0.1.0 and 30.0.2.0 high cpu usage

There are two things going on here, that get especially messy together.

One is that the last version of Slimjet broke a lot of stuff that worked just fine before.
The other is YouTube not playing nice, but in a way I previously compensated for with AdBlock and NoScript and a few extensions.

Re: Slimjet gets (abysmally) sluggish the longer it stays open.

My advice is to back up to version 29.0.3.0 and stay there until the Slimjet folks explicitly address the problem. That version works just fine and has all the virtues that got me to switch to Slimjet in the first place. I have already reported in some technical detail what is going wrong and still ...

Sent a more detailed report using the official reporting system. Sticking with 29.0.3.0 for now, but hopeful going forward. The really n...
