You mean "lose" unless you were frightened to set your tabs free to roam the world unhindered
Or fixing even more problems by going back and having them never to return. Many have probably either not bothered with v14 yet or have gone back to v13 waiting for a proper release.
What evolution - the coding is still Mozilla's Firefox and this project will pretty much die in the near future once Mozilla themselves start to release 64bit versions. The writing's on the wall and I'm sure they'll the appreciate the efforts of this project to make their own release as good if not better.
Yes it is - you try dealing with support calls for people because of such "cosmetic" things. It's these kinds of issues that make the product look untested and unprofessional, neither of which are true, but that's the impression given.
Yes they are, and WF 14 seems to have these also - I've never had WF processes crash on me so many times, in fact v13 never did that I can recall.
The WF updater or even what Mozilla uses have not been popular with me either, but at least it's not as insidious as Google's Chrome updater - a real pain to remove. The updater should be an installer option so we can choose to not use it.
Also is Waterfox a "fork" of Firefox? If not, then the name should remain Firefox as it's purely a recompile of the official source code - what add-on or 3rd party app developer is going to support a niche version of Firefox just because their code is looking for the official executable name.

"condescending statement and personally insulting" ha ha ha. did I make you cry?

You seem to talk very bad about WF. Why do you use it if it is so bad? There are other browsers out there. I am glad WF exists as Mozilla and Google dont have the b...s to release a x64 version of FF or Chrome. WF14 works perfectly for me.

If you have your degree in "app development" and know so much about "forks", why dont you "recompile" your own FF?

Be warned, there might have been some more grammar or spelling mistakes in this post.

well i still have occasional flash crash.. Usually its only if i open new flash link to quickly.

WF12 was immune to it, guess its a mix of both newer FF and adobe flash..

Is it the new installer? Is there any way around it other than downloading a portable version?

 

I'll look into the Admin permissions. You should be able to install WITHOUT admin permissions, I made sure of it but for some reason it's not working.

I might re-install WF at some point but i had problems last time like the shortcuts it made pointed to the x86 programfiles folder for some reason and i couldn't get the divx vod plugin to work either and then there was the odd crash when i first run it. Probably just me being an idiot.

However im sure ill give it another go shortly as iv been using it for a long while now and was always quite happy with it apart from the non-working auto update.


Thx,
jd.

 

Yeah unfortunately DivX have to release a 64-Bit plugin.

The only two I have are Logitech FlowScroll and Logitech Device Detection, which, I've contacted Logitech asking them to update both.

 

Great to hear things are sorted!

==========================================
But i very sad, that build only install-version, not also portable. Last year i discovered for myself an portable-soft, and forget what is installation thumb.gif .
But i havn`t search Waterfox 13.0 on portable variable in all net sozo.gif My attempts in SpoonStudio and VMware ThinApp is no effect too stun.gif
I build portable WF13.0 only on "shortcut-method (in appearence of shortcut to wf.exe write path to you profile)"
And i have very painfull question: whether to wait portable-version or "DIY"?
P.S.:Sorry for my "albanian" lachen.gif , eng isn`t my native lang.
=======================
2nd question: If i copy-past myself profile (folder profile) from 13.0 to 14.0, is it worked? Because i have much visual-tabs on Fast-Dial add-on and don`t want lost them frown.gif

 

You can get a portable version by using the /extract command on the installer. But I might release a portable version soon. Also you can use the Profile Manager just like Firefox, to set profiles. It should do it automatically though without any problems.

-----

Ju mund të merrni një version të mbartshëm duke përdorur komandën /extract installer. Por unë mund të nxjerrë një version portativ së shpejti. Gjithashtu ju mund të përdorni Manager Profile ashtu si Firefox, për të ngritur profilet. Ajo duhet të bëjë atë automatikisht edhe pse pa ndonjë problem.
I përdorur Google Translate kështu që shpresojmë se ju mund të kuptoni më mirë.

I get it sometimes too, but it occurs only on certain websites. YouTube works flawlessy, as do the majority of flash websites though.

Bug: When you pin Waterfox to the taskbar in Windows 7 and then launch the program it creates a second icon on the taskbar. There should only be one icon on the taskbar which should highlight when in use and place itself over the pinned icon instead of creating a new one.

Okay, I've got a question/problem. Whenever I run the Waterfox Updater, nothing comes up. It doesn't show anything new in the processes in Task Manager either. Shouldn't something happen?

Yes. I didn't checked the taskmanager but there is no feedback from the updater.

The updater is now silent. You won't get any notice until an update is available.

Thanks, but I suppose my question was more aimed and the name of the executable not the product which of course can't be the same, and isn't anyway hence the name Waterfox.
