@MrAlex, I'm surprised I missed this...

If you aren't getting notifications for automatic updates then do the follow steps:

Enter about:config in the address bar
Search for app.update.url.override (if it does not exist, Right Click > New > String)
Modify its value to http://waterfoxproject.org/update/%CHANNEL%/%VERSION%/update.xml

Anyhow, thanks! Waterfox is finally updating on its own for me. thumb.gif

11.0 sucks Mr. Alex. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

This is the 4th time in the last hour my Browser has crashed. I'm pretty sure there is a memory leak someplace. Probably wouldn't have found it if I didn't have so many tabs open at once, but in 10.0.2 I didn't have a single crash with so many(35 tabs) open. System was only using 4.12 of 8Gigs which seems like a lot until you factor in the AV progs. I'm not mad, WF is still a great Browser. But this memory leak should probably be sourced out and dealt with. mellowsmiley.gif

Well the Waterfox download page does warn you about that. It specifically says not to select the option to remove your data files when uninstalling, if you're planning on going back to Firefox.

Uh-oh, seems I was testing Beta builds and left the channel to beta. Hopefully Mozilla release a Firefox 11.0.1 so I can fix the issue tongue.gif

Guys I'll reply to everyone soon. My final exam tomorrow but I'll be all ears after that.

Poking around in the FF11 notes, there's a comment that the SPDY protocol has been disabled because "SPDY is not at fault, it's a 'libxul is now too large for MSVC2005 to link on a 32bit OS, even with the 3GB flag' issue".

But... presumably Waterfox won't have that issue.

To turn SPDY on, you'll need to set network.http.spdy.enabled to true in about:config

There's also this li'l fella if you want to see when SPDY's in the mix...

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/spdy-indicator/

(...though it doesn't actually seem to work, for me at least)

So they just gotta use 64-bit Windows? Or trim some fat. I know they have enough money to give their builders a copy of 7 64-bit. I heard about that before on /., a search shows up on a bug report/discussion they are considering MSVC 2010. That will for sure lock out Windows 2000 users though since using 2010 would require at least XP SP2.

Just new here btw =) and found out this. Maybe it will help you guys that are still displaying the beta channel. And Gud

from mozillazine:

Note: that you cannot change channel using about:config. Instead, you can use the Update Channel Changer extension (go to Help -> Check for Updates -> Change Update Channel). Alternatively, you can edit the channel-prefs.js file with a text editor.

If you tried to change the channel by editing channel-prefs.js and there is no app.update.channel pref in about:config, or it has not changed, then the channel-prefs.js file needs fixing. Either install the Update Channel Changer, or open \defaults\pref\channel-prefs.js in a text editor like Notepad, making sure that it has two lines like this (for the nightly channel):

//@line 2 "c:\Users\Alex\Downloads\mozilla-release\browser\app\profile\channel-prefs.js"
pref("app.update.channel", "beta");

just change to "beta" into release then save the file and you'll be set to release channel smile.gif

Got a popup message that Waterfox 10.0.2 could not determine if an update was available.

So manually downloaded Waterfox 11 and installed.

The installer found my existing installation and updated it.

When Waterfox restarted it found an incompatible add-on, and asked if I wanted to find an update which it did.

Waterfox restarted again successfully, but to my horror my 30+ tabs were all missing.

I tried using sessionstore.bak, but unfortunately due to the extra restart it too was empty frown.gif

So just a warning to others, maybe backup sessionstore.js before updating to V11.

Pete.
