Firefox Goes to 11. Exactly. One Louder.

Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...

Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?

Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.

Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?

Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?

Marty DiBergi: I don't know.

Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?

Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.

Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.

Marty DiBergi: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?

Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.

That's the classic exchange from the 1984 film "This is Spinal Tap." Now Firefox has gone to 11.

    I heard of Waterfox 64bit but I prefer to use regular version instead...and also wanted to see memory is problem....which I haven't ran into so far...

    Icepick, Waterfox works perfectly. All bookmarks, passwords, add ons, etc... And they carry over on your Ff profile so you don't need to reinstall anything.

    Eleven? Ah yes, I have all of my equipment set to eleven as the default level.

    It's so resource hog that it makes the hardware hot. So the fans had to spin faster to compensate, that's why it's so loud.

    Aaaaah... Spinal Tap - a classic! Break Like the Wind! that Stonehenge model! Now, where did they say that stage was again?

    "The Gospel According To Spinal Tap - this collection of religious rock songs begs to answer the question on what day did the lord create Spinal Tap and couldn't he have rested on that day?"

    What a classic. :lol:
