Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 203

post #2021 of 7225
I confirmed Xfire works without problems in post #1982. Check your firewall and make sure there's an exception for Xfire. This will allow Xfire to communicate back to it's servers. Also make sure you have the latest version installed which fixes the following:

Added ability to broadcast on Twitch.TV (replacing LiveStream)
Adjusted Options menu tabs accordingly for Twitch.TV implementation
Fixed crashing when navigating to Tools -> Options if using XSplit, ManyCam, and other webcam software
Fixed some IME and XInput issues
Fixed more bleed-through issues
Minor changes

An upcoming version of Firefox will include an optional service for updating. Will Waterfox include this too?

I have a problem, Unity does not seem to want to work with Waterfox 11, although it works fine with firefox 11

I was wrong...Flash problems still exist on my computer with Waterfox 11 and the latest Adobe Flash. Once in a blue moon it hangs...I can either wait it out 2 minutes or so and Waterfox comes back to life complaining the Flash plugin crashed, or I can manually kill firefox under the process list and restart it.

Try killing plugin-container instead.

Firefox 11 is 32 bit. Waterfox 11 is 64bit. Unity may not be compatible with 64bit browsers.

chilinmichael - Have you updated to the latest version of Adobe Flash 11.2.202.228 that came out 4 days ago? This may fix the issues you're having.

Check to see if you have the latest version Adobe Flash 11.2.202.228: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Try reinstalling Adobe Flash by doing the following:

1) Download and run the 'Official Adobe Flash Uninstaller'
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player_64bit.exe

2) (Optional) Open Windows Explorer and delete the following folders:
C:\Windows\System32\Macromed
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed

**If you can't find/locate the folders, then skip this step.

3) Reinstall the latest Adobe Flash Player 64bit:
For Internet Explorer 64bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_active_x_64bit.exe

For Waterfox and other browsers 64bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_plugin_64bit.exe

**You can install both 64bit. That's what I do. I don't use 32bit browsers but if you do, continue installing the 32bit versions.

If you want to also install Flash 32bit:
For Internet Explorer 32bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_11_active_x_32bit.exe

For Firefox and other browsers 32bit - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/licensing/win/install_flash_player_10_plugin.exe

4) You're done! Using these steps will properly remove Adobe Flash and reinstall a fresh copy. Hopefully this will fix any issues you have with flash content.

chilinmichael - Let's try something different. There's two different settings I want you to mess with. First is the 'Hardware Acceleration' for Adobe Flash.

1) Go to the web site that has the video/flash that's giving you problems and right-click on it. You should see the following pop-up menu:

329

2) Click 'Settings'

3) Click the box 'Enable Hardware Acceleration' to clear it then click 'Close'.

327

4) Restart Waterfox and see if this fixes the problem. If not, go to step 5.

5) It didn't work! Let's try disabling 'Hardware Acceleration' for Waterfox. Go to your options menu in Waterfox and click 'Use hardware acceleration when available' to clear the box then click 'Ok' at the bottom.

622

6) Restart Waterfox and see if this fixes the problem.

Adobe Flash FAQ:

What are display settings?
Display settings allow you to use hardware-accelerated scaling to improve the speed of playback in Flash Player.

What happens if I do nothing?
By default, Enable Hardware Acceleration is selected to improve the quality of playback in Flash Player, particularly the performance of full-screen playback.

What is hardware-accelerated scaling?
Although Flash Player can display high-quality video and images by itself, hardware-accelerated scaling uses the video or graphics card on your computer to display images and video more clearly and quickly than Flash Player can on its own.

Will hardware-accelerated scaling work on all computers?
For hardware-accelerated scaling to work, you need Microsoft DirectX 9 with VRAM 128MB for Windows and OpenGL for Apple Macintosh, Mac OS X v10.2 or higher. There might be compatibility issues with older hardware and drivers. (See Flash Player system requirements.) With older versions of Flash Player, you should not see dramatic changes as the player reverts from hardware-accelerated scaling back to software scaling.

If I have display problems with Flash Player, what should I do?
If you have display problems with Flash Player, such as poor picture quality or slow display times, deselect Enable Hardware Acceleration in the Display panel. This should eliminate hardware or driver compatibility problems with Flash Player. Flash Player then uses software to scale and display the content.

Waterfox/Firefox:

Use hardware acceleration when available: Firefox can use your computer's graphics processor to display some pages with video and animation. This makes Firefox faster since your computer's graphics processor is much better than your computer's main processor at displaying these types of things. This box is checked by default but the feature isn't available for all graphics processors. Firefox will enable it when possible. If you change this setting you must restart Firefox.
