At some point Fedora started enabling tcp_syncookies (/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_syncookies) http://ipsysctl-tutorial.frozentux.net/ipsysctl-tutorial.html#AEN485
A recent thread on LKML brought up this message from David S. Miller (amongst over things, Linux's TCP/IP stack maintainer) http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0807.3/0050.html
Given this, I'm going to disable tcp_syncookies.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=421482 good to see Andrew Morton has got involved.
I did strace the Fedora shipped Firefox 3 beta 5 the other day and only saw a few fsync()'s.
Could comment #137 be what happened to Paul?
Some chat on the fsync() issue from Mike Shaver.
Thread on linux-fsdevel about fsync()/fdatasync()
NOTE: This isn't directly a Firefox 3 issue but SQLite.
Seems a change in the synaptics driver has changed the default behaviour of tap to click to be off.
There currently seems to be two options to resolve this.
Editing xorg.conf is preferable.
In the "ServerLayout" section add a line
InputDevice "TouchPad" "CorePointer"
Create a new "InputDevice" section
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "TouchPad" Driver "synaptics" Option "RTCornerButton" "2" Option "RBCornerButton" "3" Option "TapButton1" "1" Option "TapButton2" "2" Option "TapButton3" "3" EndSection
Optionally add a line in the above section to allow synaptics driver changes from userspace tools.
Option "SHMConfig" "on"
Note: After these changes, extra mice plugged in continue to work.
Note 2: Seems the SHMConfig thing is regarded as a "disaster" http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2008-July/037070.html
The good news is that Peter Hutterer has been working on an input properties mechanism based on RandR output properties.
