Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 175

Awesome, TwoXfour, thank you! Simple and elegant.

Pardon my lack of knowledge but addons don't have different versions for 32 and 64 but plugins do? How come?

Its not a binary file as such, just a bit of Javascript.

Just wanted to provide some feedback that my "Check for Updates" button under "About Waterfox" also does not work properly. This happened in Waterfox v9.0 and did not update to either version 9.0.1 when it was released or version 10.

Also, I tried searching for the answer but there doesn't seem to be much posted.
- What is the proper way to update Waterfox if the automatic updates function does not work? Should you manually uninstall the old version first? Or can you just install the new version on top of the current version in the same directory?
- Are there any side effects if I just install the new version into the directory of the old version?

Any chance to start compiling the beta channel? I use as default browser the Fx beta ( currently 11 b1 ) and would be great if I had the same Wx's version.

P.S. From Cyprus? A fellow Greek? A strong reason to trust Wx :S

Ok this just in case anyone runs into it.. I had a page with the select all .. coded.. this is the link to page



and Waterfox freezes and cant copy even if you select it manually you cant copy it.. .. so I went to IE and did it.. and it worked.. . then just to make sure i brought up Firefox and it has the same issue also

Not sure if its some plugin I am using or just a bug in FIrefox..

How is it unstable? And it will be faster because it most likely has upgraded component such as an improved JS library.

..still lags on sites with lots of .gif animations - yet, that was fixed in Nightly since build 10.0a1.... surprisingly - that fix wasn't implemented with FF10 final release and since same bugs from final version are present in Waterfox - both are unstable from this point of view.

Check this site: http://www.laymark.com/ in FF/Waterfox 10 and Nightly .... from what i was told on OS X and Linux and certain systems this bug is not present... but on Windows and certain systems (mine being among those...) this bug is present... test it - and you'll know if it's same for u... the difference is "obvious" - on Nightly works perfectly - wile on the other two... frown.gif . Don't have this problem with IE or Opera either...

You're probably right about that...

...but was using Waterfox cause it's faster than FF final builds...and Nightly build is even faster and more stable cause of bugs fixed that are still problematic with so called "stable releases".

The installer has an upgrade function and will do all the work for you. I don't know why the issues are happening though and I'm looking into it.

I would, but I don't have time to do so anymore.

Could you explain a bit better, I'm not quite sure what exactly the error is.

That website loads perfectly fine for me. So you're saying it has problems with both FF and WF for you?

Yes. At least with Firefox 10 (so Waterfox 10 as well) - with Nightly and any-other browser works perfectly... it's not that it doesn't load - that's not the problem, loads all .gifs and they're animated - but it lags...right-clicking on a gif and selecting image info takes extra time and the animations are rendered slower... try the same on Nightly (or Opera, IE) and all animations are rendered at correct speed and if you right click on image to select info - that loads "instantly (no delay).

Works fine for me too. Have you tried making a new temporary profile (run waterfox -p)?
I know old or corrupted profiles can do some very strange things.
