Additional details regarding Framework Prerequisites would reduce confusion. There isn't any harm in "dumbing it down" a level.
Order of installations
Cygwin options (packages)
Where to put the .dll
Are given path values the defaults? Is there any forseeable reason that they would be different?
Confusion - you seem to be contradicting yourself
(Optional) For the page load test to work, modify the hostperm.1 file
* Set to allow urls with scheme:file to open in new windows
* Set the preference to open new windows in a tab should be off.
# Permission File
# This is a generated file! Do not edit.
What do I modify? The paths?
Highlight sections that need to be modified or "may" need to be modified. Within code, could be hard to understand.
Running the test will close any existing Firefox windows.
This should be BOLD CAPS MAJOR, almost lost all my wiki edits.
Skewing the Test
How much of this test is reliant on applications currently running on the system? Can one skew the test results to give inaccurate readings by overloading the system?
By running a quick test I realized that by overloading the processor, the results of the test become much less useful. Before running the test framework I started a multitude of applications to occupy the processor:
2 x YouTube Flash Video Sites
1 x Disk Defragmenter
1 x Flash Game
1 x Flash Media Site
1 x Windows Media Streamed Video
By looking at the images below, the Normal test's % of processor peaks at approximately 26.5%. In contrast the overloaded test shows a low point of 26.5%. This result actually has nothing to do with Firefox, but everything to do with stress put on the processor from external applications. In addition the other results were affected aswell.
