I agree.
One thing is it's annoying to have Waterfox running but the Taskmanager shows Firefox.

I have 35 Add-Ons and my Waterfox since the beginning of Waterfox.
I did as instructed and have no problems.

Also agree on this one.

What laptop/touchpad do you have? I have an Elantech touchpad and my 3 finger page forwards/backwards still works just fine with WF14. Have you tried reinstalling your touchpad drivers? Or if your laptop is old, then you should try to find drivers for a newer laptop that uses the same brand touchpad and download it's drivers (neat trick that a lot of Synaptics users of older laptops did when they released multi-touch drivers a couple of years back so that their old laptops could get the new features).

I have an Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD which also has an Elantech touchpad. Also, I am already on the latest drivers. The 3 finger back/forward works fine in WF12 so it is not the drivers. I have also tried reinstalling WF14, but that didn't fix the issue.

Double weird, I'm on an ASUS N53SV and am going fine. I know I've had a couple of the special functions stop working once, and I opened up the touchpad's properties (right click the Elan Smart-Pad icon on the lower right, and select Property of Smart-Pad, go to the ELAN tab of the new window, then hit Options) and then I disabled those features that weren't working, Applied/OK'd out of the windows, then reopened them and re-enabled everything and it start working again, so maybe try that? Also, does it still work in other browsers or Windows Explorer? I usually find Explorer to hate my touchpad gestures the most xP

I wouldn't change the name either...I am behind moving forward with the project and agree with nearly everything dqwf said in his post. I have not had issue one with this new release and I haven't had to make any tweaks to make it so. You are doing a great job with WF Alex...can't thank you enough.

To those whom don't like the new updater, there's probably nothing that can be done about that one as in the past many had problems with the built-in updater.

All touchpad functionality works perfectly in Explorer. it is definitely a Waterfox 14 issue. I have tried your fix and it didn't work either :'( Also, I find it annoying that when I ask Waterfox to restore my previous session, tabs aren't loaded until I view them. This wasn't an issue in WF12 and I was wondering if I can get them to all load up again? Lastly, WF constantly asks me to make it the default browser even though I say yes. Anyone else having this issue?

Make a shortcut from the waterfox.exe (Send to Desktop) then launch it from there then if the prompt appears select yes. I think this only occurs when you rename the waterfox.exe to firefox.exe cause that is what happened on mine when i renamed it. I just disable the prompt to set it as default.

Hmm... not sure what do do about the touchpad then :/ Have you tried toggling the touchpad off and on? Seems silly, but who knows xP Maybe try uninstalling touchpad drivers, restarting computer, reinstalling touchpad drivers, and then restart once more?

As for the tabs reloading thing, I had the same problem with WF13 and figured out that somehow the "browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand" setting got changed. Not sure if this is something that got messed up on Alex's end or if it's unique to us, you're the only other person I have seen to complain about it. But to fix it, just go to about:config and find that setting and change it to "3" and you should be back to normal smile.gif

hi,

Please help, i just cant seem to be able to uninstall waterfox.

its not showing in the programs and features (add remove programs) , if i run the waterfox installer again it has an remove option but its still there, if i try to run firefox it runs waterfox instead ?

im on WF 14.0.1 (just installed it but it crashed after install with some weird errors) , i did uninstall the previous version first. I just thought o well its no problem i'll just uninstall it and re-install but i just cant figure out how to.

any help please.

thx.
