Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 343

post #3421 of 7225
Well until the release of Windows 7, 32-bit operating systems were still the most used out there. Since 64-bit has caught on it's only a matter of time people stop using 32-bit browsers in favor of 64-bit. But that'll take time, a few more years at least. It's a good start to have 64-bit Java, Flash and Silverlight plugins but there's many, many to go that's needed like QuickTime, Windows Media and Battlelog for Battlefield 3.

And yes, a proper PDF Acrobat plugin from Adobe. Though if you can wait for Firefox 16, there will be inline PDF support which should work in Waterfox too.

Yep. It won't be long and 32bit OS will be flushed out. Once "64 bit" becomes mainstream, everyone will start producing stuff on 64bit architecture.

Right now most programs don't need the 64bit memory perk, but time will quickly put that to an end and Microsoft will probably discontinue its 32bit OS.

I've been using the dev version of the Mozilla PDF viewer, https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/ and it's been working just great with WF. There were a few PDFs that it didn't display too well but an update a day or so later (which do not need restarts) fixed them. It does occasionally warn you that particular PDFs may not display properly but so far the majority have been fine.

Any update on this? Still not working for me, mainly want it to be able to use 4chan more effectively.

Oddly(?) my problem is not with PDF's but with Adobe Flash crashing or just consuming a ton of system resources (memory leak?). it doesn't happen often but a lot more than when I was on version 12 or 13.

Another thing I've noticed, and not sure if it's related to Adobe Flash, is that if I go to Facebook and just leave that tab idle, eventually WF will start to get sluggish. Doesn't matter if it's the only tab or if I have multiple tabs. Uninstalling and reinstalling WF including the Adobe Flash doesn't seem to help. Same if I disable hardware acceleration in WF.

I don't see this symptom with MSIE v9, Chrome, FF, or Safari. Just in WF v14.

I really don't have a lot of plugins and extension in WF either. Just Adobe, Shockwave, Java, and SilverLight.

That said, I've reverted back to v12 of WF which seems to be the best for me right now and I'll wait for the next version release of WF and give it a try again. smile.gif

Don't forget to check for a Plugin updates at least twice a month. A new version of Flash just came out: Adobe Flash Player 11.4.402.265

The Facebook problem I can't help with. Never have nor will create one.

Don’t leave your webmail or Facebook open in a browser tab

If you leave a Facebook and/or webmail tab open all the time, this will slow down your browser to a crawl even if you have a fast computer, so you can imagine how slow it would be on a slower one.

For Facebook message and email checking, use an instant messenger app, mail client or a simple mail/Facebook checker extension to the browser like these.

I have hardware acceleration with WF14 and it works just fine. There has to be something specific on your machine that is causing the problems.

Google has a new browser JavaScript benchmark for Web browsers: developers.google.com/octane/

Read "The Benchmark" page before running it.

My Firefox 14 score was 7028
My Waterfox 14 score was 6389

Not much difference, but Firefox won. Go figure.
