Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 156

Which will never happen. That's why I keep Firefox and Waterfox set up with different profiles.

I agree about separate profiles, anyway. Necessary and logical.

But I find you pessimist... frown.gif

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?

frown.gif This may be why my PPD output tanked. I keep my Browser open 24/7. doh.gif

Seems to be good so far, I wont be using it as my primary browser until I'm done my tests. Right now I'm testing it's security, it shares all the fails as FF so far(which is safer than most other browsers I've tested) and now wondering if it has some of it's own.

I have version 9.0.1 and I just reinstalled it. As well as my entire OS because of this amazing 830. My Waterfox without any add-ons becomes sluggish and slow after around an hour of use. Any recommendations? It doesn't happen as much in Firefox, but the robustness of Waterfox is better than Firefox.

The specialists will answer but Waterfox is available only in American English. I don't have a French version either.

Dictionaries and language packages

You can install a dictionary for orthographic correction in your language.

Languages packages are available only for some languages such as some minority languages (there is Romanian, not Hungarian !)

I'm trying to update my Waterfox to 9.0.1. Everytime I go in the About Waterfox and "Check for Updates" it says that the current 9.0 is the current release. How do I get the "internal updater" to update to 9.0.1?

Same still happening here. I have 2 profiles, but neither show any update available and tell me 9.0 is the latest. Did the settings I provided the other day from about:config show why the update isn't working ? I understand 9.0.1 isn't an important update, but it's still worrying that the update mechanism appears to be broken.

Hi there! I have been loving Waterfox for a long time now, and would like to thank everyone involved in it's development and availability... BUT, I too have NEVER had ANY luck with the automatic updates EVER, I'm sorry I'm drawing a blank because I've gotten so used to it, but I think the error I get is something like "Unable to verify that Waterfox is up-to-date." or something like that. I really never gave a crap because I would just come and download it manually but now I see 9.0.1 is ONLY available through the auto-updater, so I thought I would add to the list of people unable to update. Is there a specific windows service or IP address requirement (I'm on satellite internet behind a wireless router as well, so my IP is pretty wonky, google always thinks I'm 500 miles from where I actually am... IN SPACE!! WOOOSH PEW PEW!! **KLAXXON** BATTLE STATIONS!)? Not sure what else I can say, am pretty wasted out of my mind, tongue.gif but I'm happy to hear Mozilla is on board with this project, always thought it was totally B.S. that they don't have a 64-bit version available for download.

And yes I also see CPU and RAM spikes after prolonged browser usage, it tends to run slower the longer I use it but it's never gotten so bad that I've shut it down and restarted to get it to speed up again, but I thought that was just what FireFox does even when its 32-bit, so I don't think a 64-bit compiled version of buggy code is going to fix an original firefox coding problem/bug. I don't care how buggy Firefox is I believe in Mozilla, and I always have. Google has gone off the reservation and is now completely disregarding it's mission statement of "Don't be evil." They are SOOO evil. I can't prove it, but driving vans around taking pictures of everyone and everything? HOW IS THAT NOT EVIL? Plus I'm on satellite internet and have usage limits and their little pre-fetch cheat to make the browser seem faster is TOTAL B.S. Yeah, I'm sure Firefox would be fast if it did things I specifically DIDN'T ask it to do! Like download everything as I type it, using up my valuable kilobytes! Oh crap, 5am rant, so sorry, LOVE YOU WATERFOX MAN/MEN/GIRLS/WOMEN/NARWHALS/ANIMATRONIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! biggrin.gif
