Really? Then how does the updater work then? And I have seen Mr Alex mentioning the task scheduler several times in connection with the updater.

Updater will never work because it doesn't connect to the Waterfox database I believe. You have to use the updater in the Waterfox folder.

That's the one I am talking about.

The updater is silent. It will only pop out when an update is available.

My point is that I cannot see it anywhere. What triggers it? There is no information anywhere except that Mr Alex mentions the Windows Scheduler, and I could not find a schedule for it there.

When WF 14.0.2 was released Mr. Alex made changes to the updater. It now check updates silently (perhaps randomly, I don't know either tongue.gif i just manually update). The updater in the task scheduler is no longer present thus it got carried over when WF 15 was released.

still no word on the memory usage issues?
post #3738 of 7267
I felt the installer was pretty straightforward, EXCEPT for the avg part. If you want to keep an installation simple, I felt this was confusing:



Normally, I'm used to a checkbox at the bottom that simply says "no thanks", but in this case I felt like I was being fooled. There's nothing on this page that specifically says "no, i don't want this".

Also, I think I saw this mentioned, but the repair tool arbitrarily installs avg whether you asked for it or not...

I also noticed one other bug... while i haven't tried this from the included uninstaller, i did try running the downloaded setup.exe file to uninstall waterfox, and even though it gave me a success message, nothing seems to have happened at all. I had to go to add-remove programs to remove it. (Don't worry, I reinstalled it right after... it was the only way to get this screenshot smile.gif ).

This screenshot, for those that found the installer confusing at first like I did, is how you opt out of installing AVG.

Thread Starter 

My mistake on the updater:

 

You have to put "/checknow" as a switch to the shortcut for the updater. It's been fixed in WF15.

 

As for memory usage:

It's supposed to be high and is relative to the amount of RAM you have...the more RAM the more memory usage. But if there are any other mem leaks it's nothing I can control (since I don't touch the malloc since Mozilla is working on memshrink project for Firefox).

 

Also the wording of the AVG selection was nothing I could control, but I did put a message at the bottom to explain.

I've been using 64-bit IE9 because Waterfox keeps crashing due to high memory use. So I guess I have to wait till the next update for this problem to be solved?
