Mozilla have never bundled the AVG safe search in Firefox, so they certainly haven't removed it. You must be thinking of Waterfox - MrAlex bundled it in the last release I believe, and it produced so many complaints he dropped it again.

Firefox has the ability to turn it on so yes they most certainly have bundled it with Firefox in the past. MrAlex removed it from the Waterfox build. I could always be wrong but I ran FF for years before I ever ran WF. It was only recently in the last 3 where I used something else besides WF. mellowsmiley.gif

I too have used it for many years - long before it even reached Version 1.0 in fact - and I've never known Mozilla bundle anything with it, let alone the AVG search. Bear in mind that by default Waterfox uses the same user profile as Firefox, so if Waterfox installed the AVG Search, it would then also appear when you opened Firefox. The same works both ways of course - any addons you install in Firefox will appear in Waterfox - unless you specifically create a separate profile for one of them and configure it to open that profile instead.

That's why it can sometimes get a little strange if you run one version of Firefox and a different version of Waterfox, if neither of them has been told to use a different profile. At the very least in that scenario, you'll get messages each time you switch from one to the other, as the version of the software is recorded in the profile so you're effectively opening a different version each time. More seriously, you could even get one version making settings changes that the other version didn't like.

I just encountered a weird problem now and I have it isolated to just WF 16.

The problem is with YouTube. When I log into my account I can watch other videos just fine. It's only when I go to any of my YouTube options; Playlists, Favorites, Subscriptions, etc. These all come up with a blank display. The URL is correct and I can copy and paste it into MSIE, Chrome, Safari and it displays,

Done the obvious, signed out and signed back in, signed out, shutdown WF, signed back in, cleared the cache and did the aforementioned. The ony plug-ins I have are the basics, Java (I would prefer not to have it but I do have a couple of network appliances that require it), Flash, and Microsoft Sliverlight. All are current and I did not have any problems yesterday.

Nothing has changed on this computer since yesterday either.

Anyone else run into this?

I'll keep poking away at this ....

Okay..
Since the link to "Frequently Asked Questions" in the first post is invalid, I will ask it here..
Ever since starting from version 13.1 PL, whenever I tried to update Waterfox, after installation and upon trying to launch the browser,
I get a nag-box stating:

waterfox.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point malloc could not be located in the
dynamic link library mozglue.dll.


I tried a dozen times,downloading the installation package and re-installing,it's always the same..
Is there somekinda workaround for this,or do I need to stick with v13.0 ?


^^^
any help on this please? running windows 7 home premium 64-bit,i7 quad core machine..

Just shooting in the dark here, but if memory serves me right I believe Version 14 of Waterfox was the one that required users to uninstall any previous version. I'm guessing that would also apply if trying to go straight from v13 to v16. Maybe if you try downloading the current one first, uninstalling your v13.0, and then installing the new one. Obviously remembering NOT to remove your data files too when uninstalling. Oh, I believe there was also a suggestion to run a registry cleaner after uninstalling and before reinstalling, although it wasn't necessary in my case.

Thanks. Atleast someone decided to give an answer.
I will try your suggestions and let know whether it worked or not.
Thaks again.

I had this problem in win64. I had to uninstall both Firefox and Waterfox16 first, then re- install Firefox, then Waterfox 15. That fixed everything, but I am getting the following update error when trying to install Waterfox 16.1 :I am getting "error:wrong file size" whenever I try to update waterfox 15 to 16.1 using the waterfox updater.

Lots of people are seem to be having stability issues and inability to play Flash with Waterfox 16. WF15 is working like a charm, so I am just going to wait for WF17 before I upgrade.
