There's two things I haven't been able to solve. How do I get Waterfox in Dutch and how do I install the Dutch dictionary (for spell check)? I can't find a Dutch language pack anywhere and the Firefox site won't let me install the Dutch dictionary.
You can use the language packs from here:
As for the dictionary, there shouldn't be any issues about installing it?

.I know SSE3 and SSE4 make no sense because they are really for futureproof versions of the internet that use heavy media instructions and Microsoft hasnt published enough for programmers to work with on them in WIndows. According to the PaleMoon guys that is.
Waterfox is compiled with SSE3 and AVX:
http://waterfoxproject.org/faq/ under "What makes it fast"
Code generated with these options should execute on any compatible, non-Intel processor with support for the corresponding instruction set.
May generate Intel® AVX, Intel® SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3, SSE3, SSE2 and SSE instructions.
SSE3 is a requirement to run Waterfox, but AVX runs only if you have a compatible processor.

Any add-on's that don't need a restart to install (or to enable) seem to randomly not be on when I start the program (Ad block is one of these, as others have mentioned Ad Block.)
I've tried a clean installation with both Firefox and Waterfox removed with any extra folders (minus my profile folders) removed before reinstallation and the issue seems to stick.
After awhile I noticed the only add-on's it happened to were the ones that don't need a restart after installation (as I mentioned above.)
After it started, right after installing Waterfox 14, it appears it carries over to Firefox now (although I'm not sure if that's the randomness, or just the 'state' Waterfox left them in.)
Any help would be appreciated.
ABP works fine for me? The issue only occurs once, when installing Waterfox. I haven't heard anyone else with the issue occurring after though.

Is there a workaround for this issue?
I'll test out the master password feature.
