y'all must get your terminology correct.

addons (extensions)are bit-independent. java code. they do have to be written to be compatible with the new functionality of the current versions of firefox, to use the new functions and internal coding calls. they work with either 32 or 64 bit. they also may need bug fixing.

plug-ins are bit dependent dynamic link libraries and 32 bit versions will not work in 64 bit and visa versa. plug-ins, like flash, must be rewritten and recompiled for either the 64 or 32 bit versions of firefox.

Hey, I have a major issue with waterfox - the google talk plugin doesn't seem to work with it? So I cant use it to chat with my mates frown.gif

Thread Starter 

Does anyone know of any 3rd party updater applications I could integrate into Waterfox? The new performance enhancements aren't compatible with Firefox's internal update service.

  • The Evernote web clipper addon doesn't work with Waterfox (I understand that this is probably an issue with the addon and x64, as this happens on Pale Moon x64 as well, but this is a deal breaker for me - and I'd be glad to be able to have it solved so I can enjoy using Waterfox, which is great except this issue. I've send a ticket about it to Evernote as well).

Keep the great job, and thanks for the help =)


I've removed the update to 9.0.1 for now, since Waterfox 10 is being released today.

And I don't see why Evernote doesn't work..it should since Waterfox is mostly the same as Firefox.

Since it's a plugin, unless it has 64-Bit support it won't work.

Have you tried this extension?

sigh - read my post #1612 just above yours. and the other ones nearby. you need a 64 bit version of the PLUGIN in order to run it in a 64 bit browser. if it is in fact an add-on it may or may not work depending on compatibility with v9 of waterfox.

It's taken me weeks, but I finally did it!

Wow! Firefox/Waterfox is going to be HOT with this version. Lots of cool features/additions. The Waterfox features definitely caught my attention:

MrAlex - I'm guessing you got the issues you were having resolved with the help of chm44 with the exception of the auto update.
