Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 305

post #3041 of 7225
I got it last night when it first went up, I took off 13PLA then put this on, no issues with the install and no crashing. It also seems much faster too. I love it.

Waterfox 14.01 not obeying Windows 7 Taskbar settings



I should only see one Waterfox icon with the "Taskbar buttons" setting of "Always combine hide labels"

It worked in Waterfox 13 and all the other applications only show one item

I think the problem is within the Firefox 14.01 base, because it has problems regarding the Windows 7 taskbar settings - every Tab seems to be a new instance :grhhh:

I don't have this sort of problem with Chrome, Opera or IE browsers - but its the 3rd occasion I've had similar problems with Mozilla based products - this is basic windows programming stuff.

PS : before I installed Waterfox 14.01, I uninstalled Waterfox 13

But try these methods.
1. Permanently turn on the private browsing feature to disable cache storing.
2. Limit the add-ons you use or uninstall some of it. (for me i only have like 11)
3. Use a different profile for waterfox

1.) But I really want the caching feature?

2.) I don't have a lot of plugins installed. Please see this:

3.) But I already saw that my profile isn't the problem? It's just the main tab group that's the problem?

1. I'm talking about how firefox stores them. It doesn't ultimately disable it.
2. Not plug-ins but "add-ons"
3. I don't know anymore XD it's hard to troubleshoot as we have different setups... sorry.

1.) Ok. How would private browsing feature alter the caching feature? What would be the advantage of turning this permanently on?

2.) Oh, with add-ons you mean Extensions, right? I only have two, man. Internet Download Manager and PDF Viewer. I highly doubt the problem is with add-ons since I have more with FF14 and don't have problems there.

The open new tab, open new window, and enter private browsing tasks in the taskbar icon's right-click menu do not work because they try to launch C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe, although the app has been renamed waterfox.exe.

Sorry i misinterpreted the private browsing feature. What it exactly does is it doesn't remember it.

I really don't know if it will benefit you as I'm just giving you what my settings are. btw... how old is your laptop? Sorry I couldn't help much.

Ok. I hope somebody can help me here frown.gif Oh I'm pretty sure it's not about the specs of my laptop (as I mentioned earlier) because it's just less than a year and it is a gaming laptop. Specs:

Sager NP8130
i5-2670QM (CPU)
GTX 560M (GPU)
Crucial M4 SSD 128GB (OS drive)
Seagate 1TB 5400RPM HDD (Storage drive)
2 x 4GB RAM 1600MHz

So yeah smile.gif

I'm having a problem with "Waterfox is not set as your default browser" box popping up every time I start waterfox. Yes, of course I have it set to check every time and I click yes. I've tried starting it in admin mode, holding cntrl+shift and starting it, I also tried going to control panel, default programs, but Waterfox was not listed there.

It really seems like changing the name of the exe to waterfox.exe was not a particularly great idea, as this is the 1st time I've had ANY issues with waterfox. I also can't open a new tab from the taskbar, open new tab, open new window and enter private browsing are all blank white icons, when you click on them, an error box says C:\Program Files\Waterfox\firefox.exe Unspecified error.

Some of my add-ons acted screwy, not just adblock, but reddit enhancement suite needed to be disabled, enabled too... I will uninstall waterfox, clean my registry and try a reinstall, will update if I have any luck.

I still love the browser Alex and don't really care about these tiny issues, however the jackass on here saying stuff like "This isn't rocket science, maybe you should stick with your android phone" reflects badly on this project and goes to show why more and more people are switching platforms. The last thing we need are neckbearded geeks with an inferiority complex and the social skills of a spoiled 5 year old telling people to stick with their phones just because they don't go hacking the registry every time a problem shows up. I'd rather have people asking for help instead of poking around their systems, potentially messing up things they don't understand and then blaming it on waterfox when their machine won't restart or something. Seriously people, there's no need for that kind of attitude, either help people politely or let someone else do the trouble shooting if it's going to put you out so much that you randomly insult people who politely ask for help. Even if it IS a simple fix, it's still a good idea for someone to post their issues here so the next update can include a fix, you know? I mean, even though I know how to edit my registry, or change or move something, or whatever the problem was, that doesn't mean I want to do that every time I install the program, right?

EDIT: Well, I just had the crap scared out of me, I uninstalled waterfox from control panel>add remove programs, and it never popped up asking me if I wanted to keep my profile, you know? Now, here's a stupid question, I have not installed "firefox" since version 5. Is one expected to have Firefox 14 before they install Waterfox 14? Should one uninstall firefox before installing Waterfox 14?

EDIT 2: I uninstalled Waterfox, ran CCleaner, had to click analyse and clean twice, (the second analysis I saw something about waterfox listed) rebooted, reinstalled waterfox, made it default, and it stayed that way. So that's nice. However I still have the issue where right clicking my waterfox program on the taskbar shows open new tab etc with a white "No default application" icon listed with the same error.

I hardly use those options so I really don't care and plan to keep using waterfox for now, boy it sure feels snappy Alex, thanks so much for all your hard work on this. Perhaps you could recruit some beta testers for the next major release, like you said you only have 3 machines to test it on, let us be your slaves! I know I wouldn't mind at all.

If a new profile works just fine, try starting fresh, and importing items from your old profile...

It was quite common a while back for profile bugs to pop-up here and there... its entirely possible you have encountered one of them... Simply make a new profile and import the things you really need/want into the new profile and try again, if the problem persists, then one of your other tabs in the group is calling for priority thus causing the currently active tab to falter... Its too bad Fire/Waterfox does not have "on demand" flash/java like mobile browser variants do, as well as tab priority queuing...

I had a different issue with Youtube and one of my add-ons's, using AutoPager (god I love it SOO much) which would cause a double flash player instance to spawn causing audio doubling... its fixed now... but it was horrid!
