Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 237

post #2361 of 7225
To kill some time, I decided to have a little fun and create my own custom Waterfox installer in Advanced Installer for the hell of it, minus the auto update stuff. It's looking pretty good but unfortunately it's done in Advanced Installer Professional so it won't build in the free versions. Other than that, everything's working including detection and downloading of the Intel C++ redist if it's not present (and the Visual C++ 2010 redist if it's not present). tongue.gif

So when you click a link, the data is presented immediately. Google Chrome has the same setting for speeding up their browser. I have this set to false because if the prefetched page includes malware, it may be downloaded so setting this to false will stop prefetching. User can decide what's best for them.)
I think you mean "the default value of true speeds up the browser ........". In the original text, what I understood when I first read it is that "this tweak" (referring to the tweak value - being false) speeds up the browser which is kind of the other way around.

If set to 'True' then it will prefetch files like Chrome does so when you click a link, the page opens faster. I have this set to 'False' because I don't like data/pages downloaded unless I choose to click the link and open the page (Also to prevent malware, adware, etc. that could also be downloaded). It's up to the user to decide which setting to use. The default is 'True' to speed up web browsing.

Yep, it's a great piece of software. But please do not distribute any versions of Waterfox, just for the integrity of Waterfox.

You don't need a special installer or to do anything crazy.

Step One

Download and install this, as it was not included with the pre-release. It is required.

registrationcenter.intel.com/irc_nas/2025/w_cproc_p_11.1.070_redist_intel64.exe

Step Two

This is the link to WF 13 that Alex posted earlier. Unpack the bin and just run it from wherever you unpacked it (ie. no installation is required to run it) or just get rid of everything in your default Waterfox directory and copy these files straight into it. Either will work.

Simple, two-step process.

Yes, I completely understand that. I was just referring to the way you phrased that sentence. You specifically said that "this tweak" speeds up the browser. The tweaks basically is setting that value to false since the default value is true. So in essence, you were saying that "this tweak (meaning you disabled it) will speed up the browser" when in fact the default value of true is the one speeding up the browser. Sorry, I can't think of any other way to explain my point, lol redface.gif

Thanks for clarifying. I went back and changed the description so everyone can better understand the setting.

No problem, was just an FYI. Sorry if I didn't explain well.
