Adblock, I installed it, uninstalled it, enabled/disabled... It doesn't work. And when it works, it's for a single instance and next time the browser is launch, it doesn't work. I use sync and it's not even syncing properly (and I force the sync).
The middle click work sometime. Flash still have crashing issue where other x64 browser doesn't (and x86).
CTRL+Mouse scroll to zoom, sometime it scroll the page instead of doing the job. I also have a logitech mini dinovo where Function + page up do zoom in, but now it zoom in (sometime) and scroll up. And when I try the zoom ou (page down), it simply page down. Worked perfectly in WF13.
I also have other addons that simply stop working without asking anything (and they aren't disabled) like reddit enhancement suite. It work fine when just installed, but then you might browser reddit and it stop working for no reason.
Honestly, I'm unsure what was done, but since FF14 x64 doesn't have those issue, clearly something was wrong in simply compiling with only x64 code.
Oh, and the download link says 14.0.2, the frontpage says 14.0.2, the install package file name is 14.0.2, but the about page, installation package and uninstall package says 14.0.1...


I think it's something wrong on your end.

Everything you said works for me, only issue i have is plugin container stops working when i switch monitors and maximize videos.....But a simple refresh fixes that.

I'm having multiple issues that seem to be related to hardware acceleration. The first one I noticed was that fraps monitors waterfox in an odd way. It normally doesn't monitor it at all, and the counter appears grayish and washed out. If I turn off hardware acceleration in the options panel it goes away.

The next one is youtube videos, when put in fullscreen mode, have really bad brightness and contrast. This only happens in fullscreen though, in the normal video window everything looks fine. If I disable hardware acceleration for flash player by right clicking the video, the contrast is normal again, but the video looks like it isn't being processed right. It's looks fuzzy and jumpy.

I have a 3570K and I'm running off the igpu right now, everything is at stock. Is this is a known issue? I'd love any tips you guys have.

I'm also planning to order a 670 soon, if the igpu is causing an issue would that fix it?

Edit: I'm having nodiak's issue with adblock as well. Its very sporadic.

However, when I start WF from any of the created shortcuts, I get a windows messagebox popup titled "waterfox.exe - Entry Point Not Found" and with the body text:
"The procedure entry point ?getOwnPropertyDescriptor@AbstractWrapper@js@@UEAA_NPEAUJSContext@@PEAUJSObject@@_J_NPEAUJSPropertyDescriptor@@@Z could not be located in the dynamic link library mozjs.dll."
This message is displayed twice for each attempted start of WF14.
I've uninstalled WF14 and re-installed it, and additionally installed the Intel x64 redistributable libraries, but no luck, WF14 just refuses to start up; there's no chrome displayed, this is the first UI element that is displayed.
Any help would be appreciated (this was posted using FF14 instead). I've searched this thread for parts of that text, and couldn't find anything, my apologies if this has been solved before, just point me at the post I should have found rolleyes.gif

I had the same problem. I installed WF 14.0.2 over 13.0 PL1, and it turned out that the shortcut on my task bar was pointing to firefox.exe from 13.0 PL1. However at some point they have decided to rename firefox.exe to waterfox.exe; so I was still running the old exe but with newer mozjs.dll and so-on. Fix the shortcut and you should be fine.

This also mean that my "default browser" choice was broken.

When I try to open Waterfox instead it opens Firefox
Does anyone know what the problem could be?

I do see all of the add-on active, but they don't always work. Weird thing is I get the same behavior on any computer, even without my sync (I though sync might be the problem). It's inconsistent. Sometime everything work, other time it doesn't.

Like right now, adblock is on, but I still have ads that are block normally.

What kind of ads? Unless you select the option, ABP allows non-intrusive adverts.

I'm not sure it applies to 99% of waterfox users but because of faulty hardware detection, 3d content won't play in waterfox. The exact same content does play in firefox. Youtube3d reports an old driver version (my driver is 304.79 and its reporting older than 275.27).

3d content available here: http://www.3dvisionlive.com/content/nvidia-3d-vision-pc-0

Thanks for all the great work.

The problems must be in your machine, because the browser works very well, best waterfox so far thumb.gif

I've been using 14.0.1 for about a week and a half now, and haven't had a single issue with it. In fact, it's way more stable than the latest 32-bit Firefox, and feels quite a bit faster, too.

I've actually switched to using this as my default browser on my main rig.

How do I set waterfox as default browser using a script?

Previously what worked fine was:
Code:
"%ProgramFiles%\Waterfox\firefox.exe" -silent -nosplash -setDefaultBrowser

The problem started when the filename changed from firefox.exe to waterfox.exe
hence
Code:
"%ProgramFiles%\Waterfox\waterfox.exe" -silent -nosplash -setDefaultBrowser
Which doesn't seem to do anything.. I still get the default browser popup warning.

It's currently scripted to install via waterfox*setup.exe /quiet... which isn't properly/correctly/sufficiently documented btw.. had to guess that one.
