I believe the update feature may still be broken in Waterfox. Meanwhile, you should do a manual update. Just download the installer and execute it.

Just installed it on my Lenovo X300 - 4GB RAM, 256 GB SSD with Windows 7 Pro x64. tongue.gif

Noticeables:

  1. Setup/Installation was very quick
  2. Browsing is noticeably faster! (* SAWEET *)
  3. All of the add-on and extensions that were in FF appear to work just fine with this current build.

Still early so I'm holding off from really celebrating but for now it looks great! Nice work!! thumb.gif

I've decided to give Waterfox 12.0 a try again on my Win7 64-bit SP1 machine and XFire problem still persists. I've narrowed it down to xfire64.exe process which XFire (32-bit application) starts after a while. I've tested it on brand new installment of XFire.
Code:
Xfire Copyright (C) 2003-2012
Version 1.148 Build 45392
Apr 16 2012 at 21:52:15

If there's no xfire64.exe process in memory then Waterfox runs just fine. If there is - Waterfox crashes (if it was running) or crashes on start up (if it wasn't running and user tries to start it). ESET Antivirus and Comodo Firewall were disabled at this time and most of applications were shut down during my tests.

According to google, xfire64.exe monitors 64-bit version of games. My temporary solution for xfire to cope with Waterfox is for a time being... deleting xfire64.exe from XFire folder. No file in folder - nothing to run for XFire and nothing to interfere with Waterfox. Small price for Waterfox to ride along XFire. But still, problem persists and it could be XFire fault all the way. Who knows...

Start MSCONFIG from the Run command and check the Startup tab to see where xfire64.exe is being loaded from. Then, navigate to that location and remove the startup entry. That way, you don't have to delete the file. Sounds like xfire is not compatible with a 64-bit browser.

xfire64.exe is not run from autoruns of any type (services, registry autorun or menu start autorun). It's a subprocess started by main, 32-bit application xfire.exe on demand. I can assume that in 32-bit environments starting xfire64.exe fails or doesn't happen at all and in 64-bit succeeds and then this process can detect 64-bit games.

Technical Notes for Release 1.91

Even though Xfire is a 32-bit process, on 64-bit operating systems (Windows XP 64 and Windows Vista 64) we run a second process as well, xfire64.exe, which detects 64-bit games.

So far getting rid of this exe prevents XFire from running it and that's fine with me - XFire works, Waterfox works. I hope I don't have many 64-bit games to monitor by XFire wink.gif I guess though that next XFire update will restore/recreate xfire64.exe.

I couldn't agree more.

Hmm - have other people noticed WF behaving sluggishly on their system? I've noticed this starting to happen recently.

I've been using Waterfox since v9 and love it, however could someone tell me the link to the tcmalloc version of Waterfox 12 that people have been using in the last page or so to do benches.

Cheers

Adobe no longer issues a flash 64-bit compatible under Vista. Does anyone have a link to an older version which still works? *a little cheesed off*

Waterfox 11.0 was fine but I have a problem with 12.0 : when I open a new webpage (or just refresh it - F5) is going directly to the bottom of page instead of remaining at the top. This is not happen for all the sites, for example nba.com is working fine but I have troubles on sites like businessinsider.com. I think this is a bug and I didn't find where to report it.
Do you have the same problem?
