Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 270

post #2691 of 7225
Hi Freakie,

Thanks. You may be correct. Although, I have seen some past screen shots of the Dfx Audio Enhancer showing that it had 64-bit. Now, it shows 32-bit. I took it for granted that the dev simply changed it back to 32-bit and offers 64-bit compatibility. The Dfx Audio Enhancer devs don't seem to answer e-mails. I was once able to get a hold of them by phone. Might try and contact them.

I just tried looking into it, and yeah it seems that Dfx only supports 32bit browsers even if they are on 64bit versions of Windows 7 :/ If they did support it in the past I am sorry to hear that they seem to have stopped supporting 64 bit frown.gif A friend of mine also cannot properly use her fingerprint reader with Waterfox, and of course none of us can use Adobe's in-browser PDF viewer with Waterfox xP Developers just aren't getting on board with this whole faster web browser thing rolleyes.gif

Freakie,

I just found a number that appeared to contact the Power Technology developer directly. smile.gif

He confirmed that Dfx Audio Enhancer currently doesn't have 64 bit support. They said they are working on it and they should have a 64-bit support version released in a month or two.

Very good. You were right. smile.gif

Thanks,

AC

Firefox 14 or 15 includes a built in PDF reader (or you can test it out before it gets integrated, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/pdfjs/).

Unfortunately I'm switching back to classic Firefox. All because of X-Fire incompatibility. Please do remember it's not a matter of any plugins (as some sometimes say). Whenever X-Fire launches xfire64.exe as its child process Waterfox crashes (if running) or crashes on start up (if starting). My previous solution was just to delete xfire64.exe from X-Fire directory thus preventing X-Fire from running it, but lately I've noticed that due to lack of that process in memory most of Steam games tend to be reported by X-Fire as being played even they are not (that gave me inaccurate game play timing on X-Fire webpage, for example playing Dota 2 for 40 hours in last two days). I'll give Waterfox a try once in a while but stability is more important to me than other Waterfox virtues.

Unfortunately incompatibilities like that is up to the third party vendors to address/fix/support.

Hmmmm. I noticed when everyone says there's a problem, it's always blamed on Waterfox. Most of the time it's not Waterfox. Anyway, lets get down to business. Have you tried other 64bit builds of Firefox to verify it's 100% NOT the XFire plugin/addon? Here's a good one to try:

HTGuard 64bit
http://htguard.island.ac/

If XFire works with both of the above builds, then please report back here so we can take a closer look at why Waterfox has this problem.

If XFire does not work with the above builds, then you need to contact XFire support to make a better 64bit plugin/addon.


UPDATE: I just read through the XFire FAQ and found the following answers for you:

First thing I noticed is the system requirements which doesn't mention 64bit:
http://www.xfire.com/download/

FAQ answers:
* Why aren’t the Windows games (Pinball, Minesweeper, etc.) detected on Windows Vista 64?
On Vista 64 the default games run as a 64-bit process which Xfire cannot detect. We may release a 64-bit Xfire client in the future.

* Some of my games are not detected on Windows Vista 64 or XP 64. Why?
Xfire is a 32-bit application and cannot interface with a 64-bit process. We are planning on releasing a 64-bit compatible client in the future.

This mostly affects Steam users since Steam will detect your OS and force HL2 based games to run in 64-bit mode. However, there is a command line switch you can add to force them back into 32-bit mode. Here’s how:

In Xfire, go to Tools | Options | Games tab.
Under Installed games, highlight the game you wish to run in 32-bit mode.
In the “Extra command line Parameters” field add this line:

-32bit

Click Apply | Click Ok.

You should now be able to launch this game in 32-bit mode from Xfire Tools | Launch menu.

* Xfire In Game messaging does not work for me at all. Why?
There are a number of factors that allow Xfire to run along with your games and send and receive messages from within the game. Things to check on your system are as follows:

What OS? (Vista, XP, Windows 7, etc...) Is your OS 32bit or 64bit?
Xfire In-Game messaging is currently only supported on Windows Vista, XP and 2000. If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista or XP, some games will run in 64-bit mode and Xfire will not be able to detect them at all.
