Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 370

post #3691 of 7225
I get this error whenever I open the homepage, like as in I open the program again and when I open a new tab.

Problem fixed. Turns out it's because I uninstalled Chrome and it deleted some files along with it. Don't know why since they're both in different folders... Also, when I'm on the homepage and there's that search bar in the middle for the traditional Mozilla google search, I can't seem to use it. Anyone have an answer?

Alex, can you please fix this?
Also, the only way I could solve the issue was to use System Restore, to a point before Waterfox 15 was installed, as dcurrey recommended.

This has created quite the hassle for me.

Combine this with a custom installer that is unintuitive and confusing, an updater that I didn't want, and an extra 150MB of memory used compared to Firefox (with no explanation in the FAQ to describe why Waterfox would ever use more memory than Firefox)....
I am officially leaving Waterfox and moving back to Firefox.

Good luck with the project. I hope you have success.
... but it sounds like this is no longer just an "x64 compilation of Firefox", as it is now its own program with its own problems.

64bit programs are meant to consume more memory. But the way it handles that memory is more efficient than a 32bit one. I see no problems why WF uses more memory than FF. However I do agree that the FAQ needs some updating. It confused me too when i first saw WF.

Also... what's the use of having 6, 8, 16 or 32 gb of ram if you can't even reach half of it?

My wife is running on a laptop, that is hard-pressed for memory. It has 2 GB, and she usually has several powerpoints, word documents, BOINC distributed computing, and other stuff running on it.
I had always concluded that Waterfox was using her memory, as it typically used ~600 MB with her 12 tabs open.

But when I did a side by side comparison with Firefox, I saw Firefox use ~400 MB.

When you're on a machine that's hitting the swap file a lot, those 200 MB are very precious. I would have loved to see Waterfox memory information and details, documented in the FAQ.

I see. But i think one mistake you did here (Well not literally a mistake) is you installed a 64bit OS on a laptop that only has 2gb of ram. Perhaps you're still on xp? if you're on windows vista/7 it's recommended to have at least 4gb of ram in order to fully benefit the memory usage of WF.

I recommend that you use Firefox (32-bit) instead of waterfox smile.gif it will take less stress on your wife's laptop memory since WF really uses a lot.

It's actually a 4GB machine (I mis-spoke), but memory is still very crucial, because of the amount of tabs open, programs running, and distributed computing that she does.

But man was she pissed when her weather gadget stopped working.
Despite the fact that I may have fixed it for her, it should never have happened to begin with!
I hope you guys can fix this!

This problem is pretty annoying...

I don't remember it too much, but a couple days ago I randomly wondered if there was an update and I found out there was and downloaded it, maybe or maybe not before uninstalling the current version, I was too pissed off to remember.

I remember having fifteen installed and trying to launch it, but it kept giving me the missing .dll error, so I downloaded the file and stuck it in the folder but then it gave me some 0000x0007 or something, so I uninstalled that.

Now I come back today and try to install it, downloading the Microsoft 2010 x64, but not the Intel one as the help instructions weren't clear enough on which to download (IE32, IE-64, or Intel 64). So I skip the Intel C++ thing and try installing Waterfox it but now it says that I must remove an already existing version, even though I removed it two days ago. It might be kinda fudged up, due to installing and removing multiple times I don't know, but I don't know what to do now.

It's like being handed a tissue paper to clean up an entire pitcher of lemonade that's been spilled to the floor, it's not enough...I need help as to what the issue exactly is. Funny how I could still have version 14 running cheery as a whistle...damn the curiousity that killed the cat.


I would appreciate any help, thank you.

I have a major memory leak when using Waterfox. I have 8gb of RAM yet it is still force closing due to too much memory usage. I only have AdBlock as an extension. I have no other extensions or themes. Is there anyway to fix this?
