Waterfox 31.0: 28 July [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 415

post #4141 of 6010
How do you update the Portable Version? I just started using it (since I can't manually install it, because it's still giving me the error saying that it can't remove the older version).

Great update - Thanks!!

So far no issues but when I close multiple tabs it asks me for confirmation even if the "Warn me when closing multiple tabs" option is unticked. It's a minor annoyance and can live with it but does anyone else have same thing?

Yes. thumb.gif

FWIW, I did not have any of those problems with the past versions either.

"Fix" it by reinstalling and changing the name from waterfox.exe to firefox.exe. Icons for Tasks commands still not show but at least can open New tab, window or Private browsing from status bar.
If Firefox is not installed, too, there are no Tasks or Frequent links in context menu in status bar.
Many quirks since name of exe was changed.

I tried searching the thread but found nothing about this... Ever since installing 16.0.1, I can't see embedded YouTube videos, instead I get a simple "Advertisement" text, and YouTube videos won't load annotations. Both load fine on Chrome so I thought it might be an Adblock error, but it's not, even with it disabled I get the same issue. I Googled a bit and apparently the latest Flash Player update was causing some issues, I uninstalled it and installed an older version and it's still not working. Any help would really be appreciated.

Alright, I sort of traced the problem. It's my profile. I created a new profile and the youtube embeds were loaded flawlessly. So now I need help finding out how to make my default profile show embedded flash.. or at least create a new one and merge my functioning extensions/bookmarks. Any tips or help?

Every time I start a flash video, or open a new tab. The video and browser freeze for 2-3 seconds.

This did not happen on Waterfox 15.


I think it's my GPU doing it instead.frown.gif

Hello everyone. First post here even though I am following this topic for a long time and I am hardcore Waterfox user. As a software developer myself, I really appreciate what MrAlex does, ie giving us one of the best if not the best web browser out there. 16.0.1 works great for me except one thing... File association and default icon. File associations works fine, however, the .html extension (and probably all related web file associations) are missing the proper icon. This is what I get



I believe something is missing from registry entries. For example (not sure if it is related)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\FirefoxURL\DefaultIcon has the value

C:\Program Files (x86)\Waterfox\waterfox.exe,1

this is completely wrong, apparently. Hope for a solution to the problems. Thanks for all you work.

Portable version is up now. Just installed it, and it's running smoothly so far. smile.gif

Thanks, MrAlex.

Where did Waterfox install on your system:
  • Program Files\Waterfox Limited\Waterfox ?
  • Program Files\Waterfox ?

If the former, then you may need to re-set Waterfox as the default browser.
