Waterfox 48.0.2: 06 September [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 373

Yeah. As much as I like AVG, I've found myself going back to Microsoft Security Essentials because at least MSE knows how to be relatively unobtrusive and does one thing rreally well: scan for viruses and malware.

AVG tries to do too much.

Thanks, but that did NOT work either. In fact, I think there might be something wrong with the update. This is the exact error I get every time I try to launch Waterfox from a pinned icon (even if it's the exact same one that works perfectly from the desktop):



But, funny thing.... I get the EXACT same error when I try to use the RUNNING icon on the Win 7 taskbar (the jump list I think they call it) to either Open a new tab or enter private browsing. You can even see the icons are wonky for those options:



Uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing. Running from desktop and pinning THAT icon (which always has the malfunctioning jump list items anyway) did nothing. Is this maybe an issue that needs fixing from the source?

So I am having a problem with waterfox and it not liking Ad Blocker Plus 2.12. It says its enabled but its not working. And a side thing I unno if its from it but it crashes the flashplayer then works. I cant tell if its the new adobe flash player crashing then its able to work or ad blocker is forcing it to crash then comes on. or if its waterfox not being able to use that addon properly.

Sounds confusing but something isnt letting me use my ad blocker.


Edit: I have uninstalled java flash player and reinstalled them and its still doing it.

I would remove and re-install AB+ to see if that fixes things.

I would have to say that it's more Adobe Flash having issues on its own. AF is notoriously sketchy to begin with. I doubt that AB+ is interfering with AF unless you unintentionally clicked "block" at the top of a flash link. You can check the settings in your AB+ so if you don't see AF in the list of nonos then uninstall/reinstall AB+ and if you have Java remove it entirely. Adobe Flash is different from Java btw. wink.gif

Try using Adobe Flash V11.2. This helped me a lot! No more random crashing actually. Also, if you think an addon is having a problem, hold SHIFT while opening Waterfox to enter Safe Mode and see if you have any problems there.

Just use 11.2 with caution. It's prone to remote code execution since it's an older version with unpatched vulnerabilities. I'm on 11.4 and I've no crashes whatsoever (yet) so i guess the crashes varies on sites we visit.

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.

Here's an add-on to revert it back. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/cstbb/

I usually crash when I'm on Twitch.tv. Don't know why.

That xulrunner error occurs when you have different versions installed in the same directory. Sometimes an anti-virus also doesn't allow any modifications to that directory and it messes up the installation:

Okay, I have had zero problems with WF15.

However, out of curiosity I looked in the scheduled tasks, and there is no task for the WF updater. It wasn't there in version 14 either.
I have now added it manually.

There isn't supposed to be.
