About to install this cleanly onto a new Win7 box. Do I still need the VC++ 64bit runtime?

Nope, Waterfox 10 includes the necessary redistributables with it.

Well, 5 days on and I'm 100% happy. Waterfox has solved all of Firefox's stability issues for me, and since the only difference is x64/x32, it probably highlights that Firefox's memory bounds checking is inadequate.

Task manager shows 6.5 GB of memory use and 18.5 hours processor time, and all's good. No crashes and still plenty responsive. The conclusions are 1) Well done Alex and everyone, thank you so much, 2) 4GB bounds need checking more carefully in the Firefox code, and 3) I have wayyyyyy too many tabs open!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.giftongue.gif

How many tabs are open? On a computer with 1GB RAM and some assigned to the integrated graphics, I have had over 600 tabs open at once (Firefox 3).

About 350 tabs right now, mostly ebay pages, amazon, forums, news, product reviews, reference information, how-to's, etc. I thought several GB was normal for that.

On my system, it probably used more GBs but as virtual memory. It would not have been nearly as responsive as yours but it remained stable.

Thank you most kindly! smile.gif

Incidentally on the clean install, 64bit Java and 64bit Flash now work just swimmingly. smile.gif NoScript and the Switch to Tab Blacklister work without issue, as well. thumb.gif

I need to remember to donate again tongue.gif

You guys need to use the 'Don't load tabs until selected' in General Firefox options.
post #1850 of 7225
I have a question. I have checked & set Waterfox to auto-update from the advice here & I am waiting for the 10.0.2 update. I am actually running Firefox as well (although I don't open them at the same time). Do I need to uninstall Firefox, or can I effectively run both with no conflicts like IE 9 32/64 bit?

BTW, I think Waterfox is brilliant.
