What's the difference between the Standard and Portable? Also, can anyone please help me with this problem? I keep having crashes when watching Flash videos. Like, not all the time but sporadically. As well as slow downs when watching videos with flash or silverlight. It seems like Flash doesn't like Firefox because I installed Chrome and it works perfectly fine with that.

Standard is installed on your PC
Portable is for use on a USB key.

Update your Flash plugin. Chrome has a copy of Flash installed by default (doesn't use the systems version)

It's fully updated and it keeps crashing. I thought it was the Flash installation so I installed it and downloaded it via Adobe's website using Waterfox. I hate how this happens. I try to use Crunchyroll or YouTube and sometimes they crash.

Well, Chrome's bundled PPAPI and NPAPI Flash plugins are older than the 11.4 version available which you can't update on your own but you *can* disable them and make Chrome use the system-wide installed Flash. I wouldn't recommend doing that as Chrome's PPAPI Flash is sandboxed and more safe than straight Flash. Hopefully Google will update the PPAPI Flash to 11.4 at some point... when Adobe fixes all the other Flash-related issues.

Flash 11.3 and 11.4 are known to cause crashes in Firefox. You can try downgrading Flash to 11.2 or below but be warned that downgrading Flash to an older version you're taking a risk because older Flash versions may contain vulnerabilities that are fixed in newer Flash builds. So keep that in mind. wink.gif

Damn, I wish Adobe would just fix this thing already. I'm thinking its a conspiracy to change everyone to Chrome. I would use IE if IE was just like Firefox.

Here's WF15, I'm releasing it here first to see if anyone gets any issues:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/waterfoxproj/files/Waterfox%2015.0%20Setup.exe/download

 

(Yes the file size is larger due to the compression method, sorry about that!)

 

Quote:

What's New in Waterfox 15?

  • Support for SPDY networking protocol v3
  • WebGL enhancements, including compressed textures for better performance
  • Optimized memory usage for add-ons
  • JavaScript debugger integrated into developer tools
  • New layout view added to Inspector
  • High precision event timer implemented
  • The CSS word-break property has been implemented.
  • New responsive design tool allows web developers to switch between desktop and mobile views of sites
  • Native support for the Opus audio codec added
  • The <audio> and <video> elements now support the played attribute
  • The <source> element now supports the media attribute
  • Focus rings keep growing when repeatedly tabbing through elements (720987)
  • Fixed any remaining installer issues
  • Added optional portable version (useful for users without administrator permissions)
  • Optional AVG Security Search
  • Intense Profile-Guided Optimisation

 

Questions about the AVG addition

 

Many of you will be wondering why Waterfox now has the option to install this feature. To sum it up simply, Waterfox uses expensive software to make it what it is, plus the huge amount of users means expensive hosts. Before I move further on let me say that Waterfox will ALWAYS remain a free program and will never include spamware, spyware or advertisements.

 

Why not ask for Donations?

 

While donations are nice, I still feel bad for asking for them from users and this way the users are contributing by just using Waterfox. Also, it would take a lot of donations to cover the costs that Waterfox has.

 

Does this mean Waterfox has bloatware?

 

Absolutely not! The AVG Security Search is completely optional and does not impede your browsing experience at all. In fact, while browsing the web I have found that many users would like their anti-virus companies to build Waterfox compatible software.

I realise some users may not like this but I'm hoping this is the best decision for Waterfox. Nothing about Waterfox has changed, there's now a portable version with no installers and best of all Waterfox as a project will be able to continue!

 

Last thing, what are these "costs"?

  • Digital Certificate
  • Installer Software
  • Compiler Software
  • Web Hosting

I've tried the reliable free hosts, but the overwhelming amount of user visits to the Waterfox website has had them turn me down (e.g. the web host issues a few days past).

I am slightly nervous about users reaction, but being a student myself I just can't keep on making Waterfox at its current rate of growth, so if I do lose any users I'm sorry to see you go, but I have been giving my best.

Cool! WF 15 XD Downloading right now smile.gif.

About the donations... hmm... I think it's completely fair to ask for it. It's always optional to donate that's why it's called a donation lol. And if that means helping you then why not? I'll gladly donate smile.gif So don't feel burdened about Mr. Alex. Thanks for developing WF as always! thumb.gif

Thank you, and yes those Flash issues are annoying. It'll be a strange day when Flash and Waterfox work seamlessly together tongue.gif

 

I dislike C++ as well, I find the constructs very complicated. I prefer nice looking syntax such as C#, BASIC and even Java, but unfortunately C++ is where it's at tongue.gif
