384Kbps?! I'll take a wild guess, you're from the Philipppines, right? Lol.

Thank you for the portable ZIP download! That's a time-saver for those of us without admin rights.

Now, if we could also get a way to install Flash without admin rights, I'd be all set.

Hi,

I just installed windows 7 and waterfox on any page characters are blurred, also had 15 and now firefox firefox I get 14 and not let me update giving me an error

In Firefox and other browsers that I have installed on the characters change and the pages are normal

Any ideas?

Adobe has developed and tweaked 32 bit flash for much longer than 64 and I believe chrome is 32 bit unless its Chromium build so its basically 64 bit flash issue when it comes down to it

basically Waterfox is in a punching match with Chrome 21 for me. Chrome is faster but it its built in DNS needs daily flushing in order for it to maintain a smooth experience through the week as it will hang for me even on google.com sometimes.

Waterfox has the disadvantage of being 64 bit which is still not optimized in the browser world along with 64 bit flash which has random crashes, yet its having SSE3 and AVX instruction sets along with the Firefox add-on library brings its pretty much on par with Chrome.

If I was to rate the main browsers out there....


Safari
(Weaker implementation of the Webkit engine compared to Chrome, stable, but sort of slow except on Macs)

Opera- (Better on Mobile platform, but loads most major news pages very fast. Great for long Wikipedia reads)

IE9
- ( Built into Windows so its has that speed advantage. Vulnerable to Javascript error hell, Mosaic needs to be abandoned and a whole new browser built in house but still maintain Gecko legacy support )

Firefox/Netscape legacy
- (Cold boots and memory usage make its slow on Pre Core 2 Duo computers with less than 2gb of ram. Best Add On Library by far on any browser by a large margin and is which caused it to be slightly overrated until Firefox 3.6)

Waterfox ( True Enthusiast Browser, SSE3 and AVX support are super nice, 64 bit has room to grow once HTML5 is also optimized.Still hasn't reached its potential.

Chrome ( Highly optimized from the ground up and lower memory footprint than Firefox, but eventually turns into IE where it start messing up randomly like IE)

about:config -> gfx.direct2d.disabled -> set to true

 

Does that solve the issue?

No, the issue is in regards to Flash with the protected mode feature that Adobe developed for Firefox. Since Chrome has its own sandboxing, it doesn't use Flash's protected mode and thus doesn't encounter the various issues that Firefox + Flash does. Ultimately it's up to Adobe, not Mozilla to fix the issues people are having with Firefox and Flash. Also keep in mind that Chrome's using an older 11.3 build of Flash for PPAPI.

I don't have this issue and I run Chrome all the time. Did you try toggling the Built-in Asynchronous DNS feature found in chrome://flags/ and seeing if that makes any difference? To me Chrome's the fastest all-around browser (in terms of responsiveness, page loading, multiple tab loading and switching, etc.).

I can visit the same site with MSIE, Safari, and Chrome and not have any problems.
All of my add-ons are current and I've got it to the point where I only have 4 add-ons installed.
I've started to experience this problem when WF 14 came out. I thought it had been resolved with WF 15 came out but it just took a bit longer for the problem to show itself. smile.gif
Other than that WF 15 is zippy fast. thumb.gif

I have now stopped using WF on my one computer that has been experiencing the slowdown. jealoussmiley.gif I've now gone to Chrome as the default browser for this particular computer. I had thought about going back to version 11 or 12 but felt it would be best to just leave it "as-is", use another browser and monitor the development of WF wink.gif

On my other computer, WF 15 works fine thumb.gif

Mr. Alex, please keep up the great work! It's very much appreciated smile.gif

chrome://flags/ solved all my problems. How did I not know about this feature until now. Its supports GPU Hardware accelerations?smile.gif

I'm very sorry I meant to say Waterfox wouldn't start with my last opened tabs.
I have selected in Tools > Options > General for Waterfox to show last opened windows and tabs but it always starts blank. Is there anyway to fix this? If there is please let me know.
