Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 299

post #2981 of 7225
Had to go back to adblockplus 2.1.2. WF 14 made the 2.1.3 dev "disappear" (still in addons and enabled, but toolbar icon and menu gone, and clicking addon's "more" link resulted in blank page).

Pinning waterfox in the taskbar pins the real icon but trying to start waterfox in any way just brings a blank icon, leaving the waterfox icon just idle.

The update check is a huge annoyance. For one, the idle timer counts "watching a movie" as being idle, for another, the condition itself is way over the top. Default should be check once a day, not something that will throw a popup in my face every couple minutes.
Where can I deactivate/change this? It is really annoying.

Disable/remove task from Windows Task Scheduler.

edit: or change interval to once/day or what you like.

Hi,

Thanks for the excellent work on Waterfox thumb.gif have been using it since v12 with little issues, but since v13 I've been using LogMeIn to push it to various systems and the need to uninstall the previous version for v14 was a p.i.t.a. so back to manual I go. I do however have a few more comments:
  1. The updater - please make it an option during installation - I don't want it and was pleased it wasn't available before. Is this the reason my PC triggered a UAC prompt when first running? I hope it wasn't because it wanted to be made default browser which will be another major issue for me.
  2. Taskbar icon when pinned - as someone has pointed out earlier, the process causes a second icon to appear rather than using the pinned icon. This goes against standards
  3. Installer/Uninstaller - please make sure there are command line parameters, listable using "/?" or equivalent. Not being able to find a command line parameter for v13 uninstall was very frustrating.
  4. I also experienced the issue with AdBlock not starting after the upgrade - just hitting Remove then Undo in the Add-ons tab seems to fix it

Lastly, any chance of splitting this thread up to be more manageable - I came here before signing up to a thread that was 299 pages long, so I just went ahead with my reply and apologise for anything that's repeated. You can't expect people to sift through that lot when they have issues - in my experience, especially at XDA, searches on forums are nearly always a waste of time,

Many thanks,
Taomyn

Look in Control Panel for the Scheduled Tasks - it's in there. Just delete it. I've requested this be made an installation option as I don't want this at all.

I had the blank icon too. It turns out that the installer created a link in the start menu to .../Waterfox/firefox.exe
Meanwhile it installs Waterfox under the path .../Waterfox/waterfox.exe instead of firefox.exe as was the case in previous versions.
The net result of that one wrong link in the start menu is the taskbar thinks it's a different program.

If you have admin rights you can edit the target in the start menu to the right name and the taskbar will immediately re-integrate the process into the icon.

Incidentally, uninstalling Waterfox 13 (as the site says you should do) removed it as default browser. The new installer didn't automatically, or give the option, of making Waterfox the default browser again.
You have to go into the Waterfox Options, Adanced, General and make it default manually.

Edit: Okay, so it didn't stay integrated with the icon when I next booted waterfox.
