Waterfox 50: 21 November [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 225

post #2241 of 7267
Hello,
Thanks for the Great Software.
I've been using Waterfox for few weeks now, it's Great.
I've been facing a problem and tried to fix it by myself but i couldn't so i decided to get a consult from you guys.
i use Farsi keyboard and I have modified the keyboard layout and changed a few thing in it. it's working fine on Firefox, MS Office Series, Y!M, everything ... but this layout doesn't apply in Waterfox and i have problem typing in Farsi as long as I'm addicetd to the modified layout.
Any Ideas on how to fix this issue ?

Thank You wink.gif

The user agent string currently works like this: Mozilla/5.0 (platform; rv:geckoversion) Gecko/geckotrail appname/appversion

Wouldn't it be best to keep it like that? (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1, rv:12.0) Gecko/12.0 Waterfox/12.0)

Aerofox Transparent +

For those like me who have problems of freeze, try to see if they make the same positive effect.

 

Hmm, I'm not sure why that is happening. Could be an issue with 64-Bit browsers. Have you tried other browsers such as Palemoon? Does the same issue occur?

Yes, it will use more memory.

Hmm, have you done the same things you've done to your other programs on Waterfox?

I'm not sure. Are you using the tcmalloc version of Waterfox or the standard version?

I downloaded from the sourcefoege site. Which version comes from there? And if standard, where is the tcmalloc version? Appreciate all the work you put into this Mr Alex. Great browser.

I am having the same problem. It mostly happens on Flash websites but specifically on YouTube or other video streaming sites. Latest version of Waterfox downloaded from the Waterfox website so I am guessing it is the standard version. Every three minutes or so WF stops responding and then starts responding again up to a minute later. Tried creating a fresh profile but that did not fix anything. I have the latest 64-bit Flash installed.

Hi,
Actually it was an application which i run at startup and it changes the layout without any need to manual change, and it works fine on every other software but on Waterfox, it doesn't work.
any ideas ?

I don't understand why after quite some time (no particular span of time), my FF12 and WF11 start to get laggy and I have to close and then open back for it to be snappy again. Is this a known problem?

That's exactly the problem Mozilla is having. Read my last post #2234 for information.

I'm seeing a lot of people reporting issues playing videos on YouTube, as well as, other issues. It's kind of hard to determine if any issues are a Waterfox problem or not. I would recommend trying other 64bit builds to see if any of these issues still happen on other browsers. It's unfair to think it's just a Waterfox problem, so to help and narrow the issues down, check to see if the issues happen on other 64bit builds.

Pale Moon 64bit build
http://www.palemoon.org/

Htguard 64bit build (I'm currently testing this one)
http://htguard.island.ac/
http://code.google.com/p/htguardmozilla/

I'm fairly certain some of these issues will happen in all 64bit browsers. I do know Mozilla Firefox 32bit has some issues also but what may work with 32bit may not necessarily be compatible/crossover to a 64bit. Anyway, hope this helps everyone and helps to narrow the issues down to either Waterfox or all 64bit browsers.

Ok, sorry I forgot. I guess this is affecting all Firefox/Waterfox users as of now. Does Mozilla know about his already?
