Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 337

post #3361 of 7225
I installed waterfox last night and i just wanted to point out that ive noticed some of my addons arent working. Adblocker being one of them, as mentioned by other posters as well. As well as "search for image by google". Adblocker might be a complicated program, but what about the google image search addon? why would it not work? all it does is automate the image search on their website via a right click menu option. but that option doesnt appear for me. Anyway, i use that and youtube so much im not gonna be using waterfox any more unless i can figure out why both of these addons wont work. As for speed - i dont notice any significant improvement over firefox yet.

K i just wanted to update saying that disabling and re-enabling the addons fixed the issue.

Thanks for all the great work.

Is it possible for you to add SSE2 backwards compatibility or is that an impossibility? If you ever add SSE4 I'm guessing all the SSE3 people will need a way to be able to use WF but I don't know anything about how programs run so maybe backwards compatibility is impossible? I just ask because I'm one of those few people with a 64 bit processor that doesn't have SSE3. I loved your previous versions of WF with SSE2.

Been having some troubles with Waterfox 14.

Seems to be detected as a full 3D application, so graphics card by default applied anti-aliasing to text which made it look horrible, fixed by disabling hardware acceleration/changing in graphics control panel. Also, keyscrambler stopped working with waterfox.

Just installed WF and impressions are very good, seems to run much smoother that FF. The downloaded .exe is named 14.0.2 but help/about says 14.0.1 which is weird. The Facebook page, images and text at first seemed of lesser quality (on ATI 5670, Catalyst 12.6). Maybe something related to what scottjay mentioned - although I'm not 100% sure this quality loss actually exists - I did switch back to FF because of the KeyScrambler issue. If that is fixed, I'm back to WF.
Also, if FF is opened after using WF, the Acrobat plug-in asks for reinstallation every time.

update: Also, the excellent F.B. Purity extension seems to have problems between FF/WF sessions. Needs to be re-enabled every time.

rumblpak - I just wanted to clarify that it has something to do with Nvidia and WF as I can run the movies fine with WF with an AMD card with the link you provided...just wanted to add that nugget of information.

I have tried to run the Secunia.com online software security inspector in Waterfox, but it doesn't work for me. Works in FF, Chrome and IE, but not Waterfox. Would some of you Waterfox users try it and see if it works for you? Once it starts, pay attention to the page dialog on the left where it says:

Status / Currently Processing:
Java Applet loaded successfully. Press "Start" to begin.

The second line should change as different programs are checked for their version and security status. The animated red echo bars on the right will work, but that doesn't mean anything if the java applet is not actually scanning your program files. You might want to run the Secunia scanner in your 32-bit browser first, the try Waterfox.

Let me know if it works with your Waterfox browser.

MrAlex, how do we set waterfox as default browser via command line / silently?

Similar to your suggestion I've always been using:
Code:
"%ProgramFiles%\Waterfox\waterfox.exe" -silent -nosplash -setDefaultBrowser

and I've just tested yours. Doesn't work. It still pops up asking to set as default browser.

Since changing the filename from firefox.exe to waterfox.exe, I haven't been able to silently set waterfox as default browser.

Please confirm yours work. This hasn't been working on a newly formatted pc (several of them)
