Thanks for the confirmation smile.gif I'm excited in using this browser. One thing though, so after I install this I just follow your optimizations and I'm done?

Waterfox already comes optimized and ready to go but you can add my tweaks from post #2057 if you want to maximize Waterfox for all the speed you can get. thumb.gif

Ok smile.gif Is it normal for other plugins not to be compatible with Waterfox 11? This just means that there isn't a 64-bit version of the plugin available yet right? Example is NVIDIA 3D vision. I can see it installed in Firefox 11 (32-bit) but it is nowhere to be found in Waterfox 11.

One more thing, is it normal to experience lag issues when playing Youtube videos with Waterfox 11? I have the latest version of Adobe flash player, I already did your optimizations including reinstalling flash player but still the video lags randomly while playing videos. The lag is intermittent but obvious. I don't experience this with IE9 (32-bit and 64-bit) and Firefox 11 (32-bit).

kevindd992002 - Almost all of the add-ons/extensions you shouldn't have a problem but the plugins have to be 64bit. You can get Adobe Flash, Java and Silverlight (All 64bit) from the download page ( http://waterfoxproject.org/downloads/ ). You can also get a 64bit plugin to view PDF files within the browser (Let me know if you need this and I'll post some links for you). Anything else you need, you have to check the company's web site like NVidia to see if there's a 64bit plugin or software available. There may not be a 64bit plugin or software available.

I haven't had a problem with videos but you can try the steps in post #2030. This can make a big difference in how videos are viewed.

But why does WF11 not show Java Console under Extensions but it shows it in FF11? Also, when I open FF after using WF, the Java console always prompts to be installed every time?

Ok, but I want to use hardware-acceleration, is there no way to keep that enabled without experiencing lag issues? Personally, do you have it turned on?

Why is auto-update in FF not picking up that there's a newer version already?

kevindd992002 - It seems your Firefox and Waterfox are sharing the same folders. I've seen this before when switching browsers. Assuming you installed Java 64bit, what's probably happening is when you switch from Waterfox to Firefox, it has to switch to the 32bit version and prompts for a reinstall because your profile says 64bit Java but the browser is 32bit so it's getting confused. Since Waterfox and Firefox use the same code and folders, it's best to just have one or the other installed only. You can try installing Waterfox and choosing a different install location to see if that helps.

Firefox doesn't show a new version in auto-update because it's not officially available. The official release date is Tuesday April 24. But the official version is available if you know where to look. So basicly the tech heads found it and what you see are the links to get the official Firefox 12 before anyone else before the official release date. Sneaky isn't it! Enjoy!

Oh ok. I just tried the steps in your #2030 post and the same thing happens with this video. Would you mind trying that video for me and see if it does the same problem for you? It's happening near the beginning where FloRida is riding the helicopter.

kevindd992002 - It paused to buffer. It has nothing to do with Waterfox. In this case it's how fast your internet connection is and the time of day you're watching the video. There's probably a lot of people watching the video right now so it's not streaming very quickly. The only way to view this without it stopping to buffer is by lowering the quality of the video. The higher the resolution, the more data it has to stream and it'll stop to buffer. The lower the resolution the faster it can stream.
