Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 216

post #2151 of 7225
Thread Starter 

Well, hopefully it is a problem with pymake. I'm going to try building with gmake (which takes around double the time to build). There was an issue previously with pymake and jemalloc, so hopefully it's similar to that and gmake doesn't affect it. Fingers crossed!

Same problem, and I'm not sure what to do frown.gif

About this whole "Firefox features are turned off in Waterfox" - wouldn't you expect to have 32bit specific stuff removed to avoid causing Windows to run Waterfox in 32-bit mode?

AFAIK x86 was extended with the x64 instruction set, creating x86-64. So, I suppose the program needs the 32bit instructions too.

Just my 2cents.gif

Perhaps you should make it clear which of the Firefox features are disabled in Waterfox so that users and potential users can tell by reading the OP what Waterfox is and what it isn't?
wow... anal much???someone disagrees with your published results and all of a sudden you have a bug up your btut wanting to disprove them, discredit waterfox and make wild claims that Mr Alex is misleading people??..lol
do you not understand the term BASICALLY it does not mean EXACTLY...a statement that waterfox is basically a 64 bit version of firefox is 100% correct..it basically is.. the differences are completely unimportant and not noticeable by anyone unless you are anal enough to nit pick...
I think your time would be better spent going back and writing your misleading and inaccurate test results...lol

Here here ! Whoever cymroly is, I've been surprised by the tone of their last few posts. They seem to be going out of their way to be deliberately provocative.

Make it work, with all the performance benefits. People can wait an extra day or two for a fast build, or the fastest build.

Everyone, I've linked the version of Waterfox with tcmalloc below. Some personal things have come up, and I'm trying to deal with them best I can. If anyway knows how to use NSIS though, that would be a great help. But at the moment I'll have to leave you with this, "portable" version of Waterfox.

Do you know what debugging is?

It functions as a portable program, so you can basically put it anywhere you like. I put it on my RAMdisk.
