Yes, here's three different ways to view PDF's within Waterfox:

PDF-XChange Viewer

PDF.js
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/

Strange that that happens - I just installed my 6950 and Morphological Filtering is off by default in the latest catalysts. I wonder if an application profile enables it and Catalyst doesn't know to disable it when the application is finished.

More general stuff:

Clean installed WF 11.0, everything is flawless as usual with NoScript + Switch to tab blacklist rockin' in the house. biggrin.gif

Also, re PDFs? I personally dislike that feature because in the past I've found PDF readers to be kind of flaky, especially when loading a large PDF. Then both the browser AND the PDF reader seize up, and that's always fun times to recover from. rolleyes.gif

I've tried almost every 64-bit browser in existence and Waterfox is by far the best! I just have one suggestion to help make it better, could you add a way to close the last tab (and the browser) to the last tab? We can click the x to close subsequent tabs, but when it comes to the last tab we can only close the browser. I know that it is menial, however, it should make for more streamlined operation considering things in our culture are situated to the left and going far right takes you out of the way. Also, might you consider adding the ability to duplicate a tab? Maybe adding "Duplicate" to the right-click menu. Thank you.thumb.gif

i believe tab mix plus addon can change the tab/window close behavior
for duplicating tabs, you can hold ctrl+left mouse and drag a tab over to clone it

I just installed the Waterfox 11 update on my existing Waterfox install and the menus have disappeared. I tried uninstalling and r-installing 11 also without success. Has this issue appeared at all with others? I did a search and couldn't find anything. the drop down menus like the "Get notified when others reply?" one below don't work either.

Thanks,
Bryce

To use it right now you'll need to set network.http.spdy.enabled to true in about:config
this is one big reason to try it!

I can get the About menu to pop up using the keyboard, Alt then H then A but the window is blank, like it isn't loading the contents. It doesn't freeze Waterfox, just nothing displays.

Could you possibly upload a screenshot?

Here's a screenshot of my issue, you can see that the outline of the menu appears but there is nothing in it. The commands in the menu are still active, the menu just doesn't display. I have tried versions 10 and above after 11 caused the problem without success and when removing each version, I have removed personanl information also. If I select Alt then F then X on the keyboard, Waaterfox exits like I selected File then Exit with the mouse.

Thanks,
Bryce
