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.

It is installed in Program Files\Waterfox Limited\Waterfox and it is re-set as the default browser. I also did the following:

-Made IE9 as the default browser, the htm/html icons changed properly to IE icons. Then I opened Waterfox 16.0.1, I was greeted with the 'make default' window, clicked ok but icons remained white. They open with Waterfox but do not display the Waterfox icon.

-Uninstalled Waterfox 16.0.1, installed Waterfox 15, htm/html icons are now showing as they should, ie the waterfox logo

-Uninstalled Warerfox 15, installed again Waterfox 16.0.1, same problem, no waterfox icon image for htm. They open with Waterfox but do not display the Waterfox icon.

-Cleaned Icon Cache, restarted PC, no luck.

-Used CCleaner to check for references to the old installation path (C:\Program Files\Waterfox) but didn't find any

-CCleaner showed two more registry keys associated with Edit and Print of HTML, but they both reference something that doesn't exist in my PC and if I remember well, it is relating to Microsoft Office. Mind you, I never installed MS Office in my PC at home, I use AOO... (I will post the keys later when I get back home).

As I see it, just the fact that reverting back to WF15 solves the problem, it shows that something is missing from the registry in WF16.0.1. Also, the references to Program Files (x86) in Registry should not be there. I fixed all of them myself (I think) but still no icons. And since I am currently working on web projects, not being able to see the icons is a pain in the bum.

Can people here test this and give some feedback if they have the same issue? Just create a blank text document, rename it to myfile.html or htm and see if it displays the icon.

Ok, I connected remotely to my PC at home so here are the two keys pointing to MS Office:


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\shell\Edit\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Office14\\msohtmed.exe\" %1"


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\shell\Print\command]
@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\\Office14\\msohtmed.exe\" /p %1"

As I said, I never installed MS Office in my PC at home.

Ccleaner does not do everything. Try with Wise registry cleaner .
