Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 151

post #1501 of 7225
I got automatically updated to Waterfox 9.0.1, but I do not see any announcement on it, nor do I see it in the download tab.
I just wanted to verify that this is a valid update, and that I am not a victim of some kind of a Spyware or fraud.
Thanks.

As regards the 9.0.1 update, My About .. Waterfox window shows the version as 9.0 and says I'm up to date. There's no button marked check for update that others have mentioned, so unless Waterfox finds it itself I've no way of looking for it. In Options I have ticks to automatically check for all 3 kinds of updates, including Waterfox itself, and it's set to automatically install any updates. I did see a couple of messages a week or so again saying Waterfox was unable to check for updates, but I don't have the exact message to quote here.

So, what's wrong here ?

Aha! I just found that if I untick in options to check automatically, I get a 'check for updates' button in the About dialog. If I click that, it immediately comes back and says Waterfox is up to date - although the version showing is 9.0.

Sorry, I'm just trying to iron out the final issues with auto-update. And there is nothing amazing about 9.0.1, if anything it's the same as 9.0 except with a single bug fix that Mozilla released that I haven't seen yet.

Great news to hear Waterfox will now be listed on Mozilla's web site. It's also mentioned on FavBrowser.com (http://www.favbrowser.com/). All the major places I go to I see it mentioned like LifeHacker, etc..

By the way, Firefox 9.0.1 only fixes one bug that caused 9.0 to crash on Mac computers ONLY. There's NO difference or changes for Windows users.


Thank you, and I thought it was weird, didn't notice any bug.

Yes it's a legitimate update, I've updated the website to show that.

I just remember that whenever Mozilla rolls out an update, not every gets it at once, so you'll just have to wait a bit until your browser gets notified of it. There's an internal time in about:config for when it checks for updates, you can change the value if you wish, it's measured in seconds.

If I'm not mistaken it takes a while to distribute the update to everyone.

Waterfox 8.0.1 doesn't have the correct update configurations enabled, but Waterfox 9.0 does.

When I choose theme, I have no problem, but when ı open the waterfox browser tomorrow, the theme become disable. I use most popular theme(noia,blue fox etc...). What is the problem for the theme?

Auto-Update from 9.0 to 9.0.1 worked for me, though there's still the bug that Waterfox keeps on showing "Apply Update" in the About dialog even though the update is already installed.

I should mention that there is something in particular I have noticed about Waterfox after long periods of use:

After long periods of use, of course, RAM usage climbs (although this should not be a perceivable problem on my system) and (more importantly) apparently, CPU usage climbs too.

 

Since it seems Waterfox is single threaded as with regular Firefox, CPU usage maxes out at 17% (1/6 cores).  The problem I'm having is that after a long period of use (i.e. a couple of hours with several tab opening instances and , Waterfox is slowing down and becoming somewhat sluggish, the reason being that CPU usage starts to peak (and is limited to that one core).  Sometimes the browser completely stops responding.  This is completely unusual because GPU acceleration should mitigate the need for most of this.

 

This has been evident in most of the past versions.  A quick browser restart usually solves it for me.

 

I am thinking that this problem might be the cause of certain browser settings - i.e. my profile has basically been imported right up from Firefox 4 (albeit with several optimizations/clean ups done each week).  I don't think anyone else is experiencing the problem to the same extent, but just in case.... anyone?

Ok, I don't know *** is going on?

But I keep using Help | About | Check for Updates

I do NOT SEE AN UPDATE

I am getting a little frustrated and would like a proper full executable, please.
