Thread Starter 
Just letting everyone know that on April 26th Firefox will be updated to 4.0.1 and so will Waterfox and automatic updates will be implemented as well in that build so users won't have to keep coming to this thread to check for updates.

I'm curious, I'm always wondering when updates might come around for Firefox.

How were you notified about April 26th update?

Just downloaded and installed.

I like it already I like the blue/black logo Though it seems kinda low res if you have big icons ^^

The install was nice and quick, easy, and Waterfox just imported everything.

Can you somehow build the 2010 C++ Redistributable into the Waterfox install? Is that possible?

Hey all!

So I installed it on my spankin' new Core i5 machine running Vista 64-bit.

I installed the VC++ redist, then Waterfox. I had a bit of weird funkiness where during the initial load of Waterfox the minimize, maximize and close buttons seemed to be flickering and it didn't respond to a minimize when I tried. After some time it behaved normally and I was able to get stuff configured and set up.

What I've noticed is that downloads seemed initially a bit sluggish; I don't know if that's some sort of Vista prefetch information gathering thing or what, but now everything's pretty snappy. Haven't installed 64-bit flash or Java yet, but NoScript works like a champ on Waterfox.

Another thing is the colors are different. The smaller-resolution image is my Firefox (32-bit) 3.6.16 screenie of this thread and the larger-res image is my Waterfox screenie.

EDIT: Weird! My monitor actually displays the background of my FF32 screenie in the same darker blue shade as my Waterfox screenie. I guess my laptop's monitor is set up to display brighter colors for some reason. I'll have to twiddle things a bit I guess.

EDIT 2: I looked at this on my laptop, and same deal. What I think are two different shades of blue really are the same shade.

EDIT 3: 64-bit flash works! Am watching Youtube in Waterfox!

Strange all the icons etc should be the exact same resolution as the original icons

Systems that run Firefox fast already will barely notice a difference. Lucky bugger

Glad to know it all worked out in the end. Not too sure about those sluggish downloads though
