Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 142

post #1411 of 7225
Just got hit up on Lifehacker...

EDIT: Just made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. Hated how Firefox moved the new tab to the far right, and always preferred how Chrome did it. Standard Firefox and PaleMoon didn't work for me because of that, but WaterFox handles it how I like. smile.gif

Just starting using this at work tonight. I work in a NOC with a lot of my work being done in a browser (monitoring tools, ticketing, databases, etc...). Compared to the standard Firefox 9.0 build, the Waterfox build seems to eat a lot more memory and at a somewhat rapid rate. I run two profiles (work and personal). The work profile I have a saved session with 4 windows and 17 tabs, my personal profile has 1 window and 6 tabs. The work profile has been running for about 6.5 hrs and is using 658mb while the personal profile has been restarted and running for a couple hours now and is using 815mb. I definitely notice that sites like Facebook (particularly after the release of Timeline), Google+, Google Reader, etc... tend to contribute to a much more rapid increase in memory consumption.

My work machine unfortunately has the least amount of memory and is the one I have to be most concerned with excessive memory usage (4gb DDR3 running Windows 7 x64). Any ideas on a work around to help alleviate this?

I've noticed Mozilla has 9.0.1 as the version available on the main site when you go to download the latest release, and it has auto-updated on one of my machines, but not all of them. Kinda weird.

Thx Mr Alex

Just noticed that the release is 9.0, not 9.0.1 (dont work with it).
Thx a lot for your help and for your greatfull (not sure that this word exist!!!) waterfox.

Ps : i've lost my waterfox button in the upper left, it becomes firefox. It will be very good if you could do the language pack too to conserve the waterfox identity. But i know it's a lot of work!!

PS 2 : i'm sure my horrible english stinging eyes, very sorry!!!

Longtime Firefox user + Win7-64 bit

2 questions for you all--

I know that Norton 360 add ins do not support/run under IE 64 bit. It's an important add in for me, do you know if it runs under your application?

If I install Waterfox and import my current Firefox profile, can I still run my current install of Firefox?

Thanks,

Mark

Could anyone help me?

Thanks,

Fernando

I feel your pain. I switch to Chrome for GVideo to avoid having to close WF before opening FF.

Other than that, WF is a breeze!

1) Will it use the following plugins I have now:

375

UPDATE: IE Tab Plus doesn't work so I switched to IE View Lite (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ie-view-lite/). Roboform doesn't support Firefox 64bit so I switched to Lastpass (https://lastpass.com/). Lastpass is a fantastic form filler and password manager. It does take some time to set it up (http://helpdesk.lastpass.com/) but works perfectly with Waterfox.
