Waterfox 48.0: 10 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 271

Pale Moon x64 does not use "Firefox.exe" as the process name, it also uses its' own profile. This makes it less useful to troubleshoot problems of this type.

HTGuard x64 would be a better testbed as it does use the Firefox name and profile.

I forgot about that. I remember reading that the developer of Pale Moon will be changing the release dates and version numbers to his own. Also changing the code and features of the browser so it's different and moves away from the original Firefox.

Pale Moon began moving away from Firefox quite some time ago (FX 4?), as has Waterfox over the last 7-8 months (FX 9?).

Depends what you consider moving away. Pale Moon has started drastically to move away and completely redo the code and features starting with version 12. Here's what the developer said:

"Pale Moon 12 sees the start of a different release cycle for Pale Moon because honestly, I'm sick and tired of the 6 week carousel forcing me to start from scratch because code merges fail with lumped-together patches (as became clear with Pale Moon 9). You'll have to stop thinking in terms of PM 13 and 14, considering a stable base in PM12 will see incremental implementations of relevant bugfixes on it, similar to 9.2 in lieu of 10, before. Pale Moon's development will become more independent of the staged release cycles @Mozilla from here on out."

Starting around version 13 of Firefox, Pale Moon announced some of the major changes that would be done. Here's the link:

The next version of Pale Moon will be entirely changed. Here's the link:

Waterfox hasn't in a major way moved away from Firefox. Everything remains the same except for the optimizing that's done. Features and settings remain faithfully true to Firefox and aren't changed. This makes Waterfox very stable and compatible for a 64bit build. Pale Moon is more like an entirely new browser. Personally, the direction Pale Moon is taking is aggressive but very interesting. I don't agree with some changes but other changes (even if introduced in a beta) is welcomed if deemed stable enough by the developer for a Pale Moon release.

Overall, Waterfox stays true to Firefox. Compare Waterfox and Firefox, there's no difference except for the branding and 64bit optimizations. Disabling debug, crashreporter, etc. in mozconfig are minor and not used by the average user so I don't consider that moving away from Firefox. That's a good thing and that's what makes Waterfox great. Anyway, that's my 2¢.

You'd do well to check that.

FLASH!

No, really. Flash may have been fixed.

"Today’s Flash Player update to version 11.3.300.262 is said to fix the issues that Firefox users are experiencing with Flash contents in the web browser. The latest version of Flash is already available for download at Adobe’s official Flash download site, and also as a direct offline installer from Macromedia’s ftp server."

Your welcome!

I installed the Flash update for Firefox, but I still get crashes trying to watch Flash video on some sites. It doesn't seem to affect the browser as much as before... just the Flash.

I heard the Flash bug's not fixed yet, so that could be it still.
