Changed Wiki Pages

The pages below have been updated to reflect some of the changes since Firestorm 5.0.11. Please do not bookmark them, as they will disappear once 5.1.7 goes to public release.

  • Avatar Menu: Favorite Wearables. A window to hold frequently used items such as HUDs and items for quick attach/detach using double click to add. Creates a protected subfolder of links #Wearable Favorites inside #Firestorm folder. See also Toolbar Buttons.
  • Avatar Menu: Show User Interface. Unchecking hides the user interface. Use Alt+Shift+U to show user interface again. Chiclets and script dialogs remain visible.

Avatar Complexity

  • Avatar Menu - Appearance (Ctrl+O) - Wearing tab: Shows the rendering weight of each worn attachment. Avatar Complexity
  • Avatar Menu - Appearance (Ctrl+O) - Wearing tab: Added the ability to use double-click to remove wearables and temporary attachments.
  • Avatar Menu - Appearance (Ctrl+O) - Outfits tab: Added the ability to use double-click to add/remove.


  • Firestorm - Build 1: Script Editor Font. Allows you to select the name and size of the font used in the LSL script editor.
  • Firestorm - Uploads: Reset default folders button resets all upload folders to default destinations.
  • User Interface - 2D Overlay: Prevent statistics window from gaining focus. If enabled, the statistics window will never receive focus when another window is closed. Actions such as changing graph layout for items are still possible when enabled.
  • Move & View - Movement: Allows you to select Predict or Stop behavior.
    This setting affects how the viewer will behave when approaching a region crossing. Two options are possible. The first, being “predict” (and the default behavior), will cause the viewer to try and predict movement into the region ahead whilst using bogus movement until the session with the region ahead has been setup. The second option here is “stop”. The “stop” option does what its name implies; movement at the region crossing will cease until the session with the region ahead is setup and data is received (such as a position update).
    In certain scenarios, some may prefer the “stop” behavior (e.g. some aviators, people who like to race land vehicles), whilst some may prefer the default behavior (predict).
    Note that the “stop” setting is experimental code and a workaround pending server side changes. It is not a fix. If you find yourself in a position where the experimental code is not ideal, simply revert the change back to “predict”. Setting this option does not require a viewer restart.
    For more information about how the experimental code works, see

People - Nearby (Radar)

  • Nearby (Radar): Render Settings. Right-click any avatar gives fly-out menu and offers options to Render Normally (default), Do Not Render, Render Fully.

About Land - Access Tab

  • About Land - Access: Timed ban: Added the ability to ban residents from a parcel for a specific amount of time (minimum 1 hour, maximum 8766 hours (approximately 1 year)). Select the number of hours when the window opens and press OK. Otherwise, leave it at 0 to permaban.

We always appreciate the diligent help of our residents in finding, filing, and sometimes fixing these - and following along with the development efforts.

Merged up to Linden Lab Version
Release Notes for v5.1.4 (515016) - Second Life Viewer Released on May 07, 2018.

Maintenance: Ouzo is here to quench your thirst.

  • This bottle of Maintenance fixes brings you a large helping of crash fixes, a serious side of bug fixes, and a splash of improvements. Bottoms up!

Merged up to Linden Lab Version
Release Notes for v5.1.3 (513644) - Second Life Viewer March 27, 2018

  • This release of the Viewer pulls in a raft of updates to the built in media support that were not quite ready to be integrated when the 64 bit Viewer (Alex Ivy) was released.
    It is comprised of various fixes, updates, security patches and improvements for CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) that is the basis for the built in web browser and VLC that provides support for video media playback.
    In addition fixes are included to Dullahan (the third party library that uses CEF) as well as all the media plugin code itself.
    As per the Alex Ivy 64 bit viewer, there is no Linux version.
  • Cookies
    The option to not accept cookies has been removed due to complexities of not doing so in the in-viewer browser. For a more controlled cookie experience, an external full-featured browser may be better.

AlexIvy 64bit - Fully merged up to LL's AlexIvy viewer for Windows and Mac. As a result of this update, there is no Linux viewer available. The Linux community is working to resolve this and accordingly, there is no way to anticipate when a Linux viewer will be available for testing.

Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) Dullahan updated:

  • Dullahan: 1.1.1080
  • CEF: 3.3325.1750.gaabe4c4.513446
  • Chrome: 65.0.3325.146
  • Page of test URLs for Dullahan that are more complete and more robust. With the Developer Menu enabled (Ctrl Alt Q) press Ctrl+Shift+Z then the Home page button.

FMOD Studio 1.10.04

KDU updated to v7.10.4.

Voice Update: Vivox Version 4.9.0002.27586 (Mac and Windows)
Voice Opensim not updated 4.6.0017.22050 (Mac and Windows)
Linux uses native voice files Version: Vivox 3.2.0002.10426
