Ugh, it was working fine before.

I'll try MediaFire again.

 

EDIT:

 

Here is a preview version of Waterfox 13 if anyone is interested (while I do deem this stable, use caution)

If any AMD users could do some testing as well that would be great.

I know there's people on the forum who never check the main page ( http://waterfoxproject.org/ ). So I posted a message from MrAlex about the next version of Waterfox below so everyone knows of the goodness to come! I'm quite excited about the direction Waterfox is going. Kick-ass! thumb.gif

Changes that count
May 23, 2012
Posted by: MrAlex

There are many things that can be done to a program to improve performance and quite a few can be done during compile time. In the next version of Waterfox, the following changes will be implemented:

Switching to Intel's LibM from AMD's LibM

This provides a very little performance increase, but it's still there due to Intel's more efficient use of math functions.

The implementation of a better memory allocator (tcmalloc)

Memory allocators have come a long way, especially since the implementation of jemalloc in Firefox 3. A well written malloc can provide some nice performance benefits. Low memory and better CPU scaling are some of the advantages of a well implemented malloc (but since the release of Windows 7 and it's own memory allocator this is less of an issue). To gain some more small performance improvements, I have implemented tcmalloc from Google's Performance tools (the same memory allocator used in Google Chrome).

More information about tcmalloc can be found here.

Compilation using Intel's C++ Compiler

There's no doubt about it that ICC is one of the best compilers out there. Just a simple recompile of a program can net huge performance improvements. While a stable program is hard to achieve, it is not impossible. Therefore the next version of Waterfox will include as much of the code being compiled by ICC as possible while keeping the program stable and usable.

Gives off an error on start about libmmd.dll missing on this AMD machine. After adding the DLL to the directory, Waterfox crashes with a MSVCR100.dll error.

Oops, forgot to include the redistributables. You can find MSVCR100.dll in any other version of Waterfox, or just install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 redist.

Is it normal for FF and WF to consume around 10% CPU (based on Task Manager) when opened with around 20~30 tabs? I have a 2670QM in my laptop which is more than enough for a CPU.
post #2297 of 7225
Audio has stopped working online (websites like YouTube) since I've gotten my new headset. Do my headset and Waterfox just not like each other? IE and all of my games work just fine, but the audio online doesn't. frown.gif

Sounds normal to me. Considering what each web site is doing (animations, video, etc) in each tab, plus add-ons used for each tab, this will increase the CPU usage. Without the tabs and just having Waterfox/Firefox running, what's your CPU usage?

I noticed you said the audio stopped working after getting your new headset. What were you using before and did it work before getting the new headset? Is Waterfox sandboxed using Sandboxie (sandboxing is also included in newer versions of some anti-virus programs)? Click the speaker at the bottom right near the time and choose 'Open Volume Mixer'. Make sure the volume is up/loud and not muted for 'Plugin Container for Mozilla.....'.

There's actually many things that can affect the audio in Waterfox but I want to see if the above solved the problem.

- Page Source now has line numbers
- Line breaks are now supported in the title attribute
- Improvements to "Find in Page" to center search result
- URLs pasted into the download manager window are now automatically downloaded
- Support for the text-align-last CSS property has been added
