Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 250

post #2491 of 7225
For those buggered with deleting the cache file all the time here's a quick temporary fix.


1. Open up notepad

2. Copy and paste these 3 lines below:

echo off
del startupCache.8.little
"C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe"

3. Now save the file "whatevernameyouwant.bat"

4. Now download the Bat2Exe converter (http://download.cnet.com/Bat-To-Exe-Converter/3000-2069_4-10555897.html) and extract it somewhere.

5. Launch the Bat2Exe converter, browse to the batch file, Tick the "Invisible application" box, compile the file and save it to desktop.

6. Place the newly created exe file in "C:\Users\"your windows account name"\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ouwwz6h4.default\startupCache"

7. Create Shortcut to desktop and run.thumb.gif


This process will automatically delete the cache file and run Waterfox flawlessly everytime, temporary eliminating the problem. Also you won't have any dos windows open (but cmd.exe and the exe file you create will still take a small amount of ram).

I have ESET Smart Security 5 and am having the startup issue as well. I tried installing WF13 before updating FF13, didn't work. Updated FF13 from the full installation package, not the FF updater, didn't work. Tried it with a fresh Profile, didn't work.

One thing that I did notice is that not only is it displaying wrong, but it is just flat out not loading the entire program. Loading up a fresh profile (not remembering any history from previous session, all settings at default) correctly will take about 66MB in my RAM while when it has the issue, it's only 48MB. Same thing is happening in my regular Profile, except it stops at around 68MB. Not sure if that helps at all, but it's just something I noticed.

Not sure how else to help :/ Any debug logs or something we can help you with?

It's in "Local Disk C:\Users\[Your username]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\[Your Profile]\startupCache"

Or you could use firefox for the time being biggrin.gif

Just chiming. Aforementioned bug I don't get. Running Kaspersky if that's any help.

EDIT: I take that back. It happened straight away after I rebooted.
EDIT 2: It works again after starting up Firefox, closing it, and using Waterfox again ... ?
