You can try the RAM usage tweaks at the following page (very top and bottom): http://www.bgr.com/2009/01/25/a-handful-of-firefox-tweaks-that-will-double-your-browser-speed/

I solved the problem, It´s need install the "Locale Switcher" plugin.

Hello. I wanted to know if there\s a tool to provide an objective comparison of Firefox vs. Waterfox speeds. Ie. to let me know how much times Waterfox is faster that FF, respectively how much ms Firefox spends on loading a single page than Waterfox, rather than to rely on subjective impression. An user may fall into the placebo effect easily by comparing both products from knowledge Waterfox is 64bit therefore faster.

Trying and failing to install this. It extracts the install and then disappears. I tried running as admin, still nothing. added it to my firewall exceptions.. still nothing. Does anyone know how I can get this thing to install? =(

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Thanks in advance!

Thanks.

Now can you or someone else give a more detailed post on how to do that?

I would really like to be to run both waterfox and firefox at the same time.

I get the oxc000007b error. I didn't read through all the pages, but it doesn't seem to be in the documentation yet, so I'm asking.

Windows 7 Ultimate, latest Waterfox as of yesterday.

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!!!


Sorry I haven't had time to compile 9.0.1, I'm on holiday. And I'll be sure to make my own language packs, thanks for telling me about that! And your english is good enough for me!

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


It probably won't be supported, but good antivirus software checks network activity regardless of a browser plugin.

Yes you can, Waterfox uses your existing Firefox profile.

I haven't heard of that problem before. Id say try and find the directory to which the installer extracts to, but I'm not sure where it actually does. Maybe try clearing out your temporary directory and redownload the installer?

Have you tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the Visual C++ Redistributable?

i just found waterfox, and it is faster.

But i have one bug that stops me from using. It doesnt seem to want to play ANY file embedded video file inside the browser itself. It always wants to save it and launch it from a local player such as winamp. Very annoying.

is there a fix for this? i did a search but found nothing.

No, there is no Windows Media Player or QuickTime plugins for 64-bit browsers.
