Well as for my case I haven't encountered any error after I renamed it to firefox (see my screeshot above). I just can't set it as my default browser, however it it isn't a big deal as i can just disable the pop to set it as my default browser. smile.gif

Edit:

Do you mean when you open .html, .htm and .url files? If yes there is a solution for that.

Go to Control Panel>Search "Default Programs">Set Association

Just change the program to waterfox.

Safe Mode? Isn't that the same when you go to the firefox tab then help>Restart With Add-ons Disabled and in the Troubleshooting Info "Reset Firefox"?

OR

Hold Shift while launching Waterfox.

There are no issues with back/forward anywhere else in the OS, so it is definitely a Waterfox issue.
P.S. I upgraded from Waterfox 12 because 13 had plugin issues.

Bump my post up! I would really like the back/forward functionality back because I really look the smoothness of Waterfox 14 over 12.

I've found, FXAA is not compatible with Firefox. look in settings Nvidia for firefox...
Waterfox14 isn't recognized as a firefox (then WF13, yes).

I'd like to vote for renaming the executable back to firefox.exe - I've never seen so many issue caused by such an unnecessary change, with "having to uninstall" being the most annoying.

Mr Alex,
I dont agree with going back to firefox.exe.

First of all the problems have occurred because people cant read. It was clearly explained we needed to uninstall to install the new version. I was scared to loose my tabs but did as told and no problems for me (W8 RP x64). This is the first time we had to uninstall before installing the new version because of the the exe name change. Next time it wont be needed but if you change the name again we will have to, causing more problems. Waterfox should also try to evolve and not stay stuck with firefox.exe. We might as well go back to x32 as some plugins dont work! Move forward and fix issues to make the product better.

There are also some problems which seem to be cosmetic. Complaining about an icon, a way of docking, flash, etc. Those a not real problems or at least WF problems. If WF is crashing, is slow, has memory leaks, security issues, doesnt display pages as it should, etc. those are real problems.

I dont like the Updater, I prefer the way it was before, when I clicked the Help menu to check for updates when I wanted to but this is not a life threatening thing so I dont complaing about it. There was a way to disable it from checking for updates every time the PC was idle (this was extreme) so problem solved. Now I can check for updates when I want.

I like the project, have been using it for a while and want it to be better and not just stall to keep people happy.

Thanks for what you have done!
