Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 372

post #3711 of 7225
Any new ideas regarding why waterfox 14/15 are having those memory issues Mr. Alex?
i have used waterfox for a long time, and it works fine on my laptop... but i cant use it on my main desktop if i have to close it every 5 minutes.

i dont know if you caught my old post about how scrolling up and down a page seem to increase it the most....

oh, and a note for other users who dont have a clue: read my old posts before making guesses. I dont want random people saying "oh, 64 bit programs use more memory" or "it has to be a problem on your machine" or any of those half-hearted responses.

I hope the error will be corrected and will appear in Lithuanian localization...

Graphics corruption has been a problem with certain hardware lately.
For my Windows 8 system, I believe updating the graphics drivers fixed the problem.

But here are some things you can try, including settings changes:
- Try to install the latest video card drivers for your OS (even if the drivers are beta)
- Try changing the Firefox/Waterfox setting called "Use hardware acceleration when available" to NOT bet checked, and restart the browser
- Try changing the Firefox/Waterfox setting in about:config, type "2d" in the search box, then change preference "gfx.direct2d.disabled" to be set to value "true", and restart the browser

Some other people have reported an issue similar to this, but none of the suggested fixes seemed to work.... I CANNOT for the life of me get Waterfox to pin correctly to my Windows 7 taskbar, it just won't happen. I either get 2 icons every time I launch, or get an error about some version not being compatible. I've tried running waterfox.exe directly from the directory and then pinning THAT, but as soon as I close and try to relaunch, I get the error. This is pretty frustrating, any suggestions would be greatly welcome frown.gif

500k KB = 500MB.

Before you mixed one unit wrong and had 500k MB = 500GB of memory. weirdsmiley.gif

My Waterfox is sitting at 300MB and I never close it. Ever. (Or in your weird units... 300k KB laughingsmiley.gif)

Try uninstalling Waterfox (leave preferences). Reinstall it. Don't run it. Reboot. Then pin the desktop icon.

If that still doesn't work, unpin all of Waterfox. Run the desktop icon and pin what comes up on the task-bar and delete the icon.

I run Windows 8 and I get a few graphical problems also.

Sometimes the text will blur and scrolling past it and back to it (redrawing it) will fix it.

The other problem I get is sometimes (rare) a webpage I go to will have the HTML stripped on it. Meaning everything is just plain text to left and graphics in between. No formatting at all.

Thanks for this headsup. I installed Waterfox 15 today and have no AVG. Frankly, in the past year or so I've become aware I can't 'just' install the way I used to. Actually have to read the prompts, and different software puts their 'freebies' in different places. Stay alert, or you'll have this junk all over the place.

Fortunately, I now have Waterfox 'Custom' (I wanted to check at least one of the custom boxes - but don't).

Mostly because I was just looking at task manager and I was trying to just mimic whatever it said on that. smile.gif I wasn't really trying to think by then.

500MB memory usage isn't really that much these days.

500mb is like nothing compared so anything else I use. Seriously, you can have 8GB of RAM and think 500mb is huge, but really it's so small. I mean if you had 2GB of ram, maybe you'd have to start worrying about usage.

I had that at one point too, happened after I installed an addon.

There's a simple fix, right click the home button, click Customize..., then click the "Restore Default Set" button, re-add any addons you want visible on the UI then click done.

Definitely something weird going on there, not normal at all. Personally I'd try creating a new profile - if it's being caused by a dodgy addon or weird setting in your profile, that should fix it.
