No no. My parents use Windows 7.
On their machine, I have had nothing but problems trying to get FF4 to work.
But in Linux, FF4 hasn't been updated for Linux (I don't think?)
Because I'm still running 3.6.17 or something like that.

I've got firefox 4 on my ubuntu 10.10, I had to manually add firefox to Ubuntu's update list.
I'm not sure how to do it on mint, but here's how to do it on Ubuntu. http://www.webupd8.org/2011/03/insta...1004-1010.html
Hopefully it gives you an idea on how to install it on Mint

I used Visual Studio 2010 compiler . And I didn't make the build Intel or AMD specific, because that would take around 9 hours to compile 3 builds, time which I don't really have

Yes, but Firefox is now releasing a new version every few months. I think it's stupid And no idea. If it is 64-Bit then there isn't really any point of me carrying on Waterfox

There is an add-on that allows you to change Firefox's name and icon I believe (And Firefox 4 is released for Linux. Firefox updates release simultaneously across all platforms).

Is there any way to make it use a different profiles folder/location?
It used all my settings and what not from my 3.6 firefox, and then i had to reconfigure my 3.6 after running Waterfox.
I want to be able to run both independently with no profile conflicts

What's the update status on this release? After its install can we just update via the program, or do we have to get back here and get the newer versions?

Also i asked before about portables. You said this is not widely requested. So are there no future plans for a portable version?

Thanks

For the stable releases from 4.0.1 and onwards, auto-update is enabled and it (hopefully) works .

I'm not sure about a portable version. I'll have to think on that. If I had a more powerful computer then sure I wouldn't mind. At the moment I'm stuck on laptop compiling Waterfox

Installed Waterfox, now it makes weird sounds when opening/closing tabs?

I think it's the sound of my onboard video or something? Why would this browser make my machine do a weird sound?
