Waterfox is compiled by MS Visual C++ 2012 and that compiler by default produces executables only compatible with Vista or higher. But Microsoft did release an Update 1 for MSVC 2012 which includes official XP targeting support. See here and here. Though I don't know if Waterfox 18 is using XP targeting and it's just bugged, or if it was compiled without XP targeting.

Well, MrAlex could always do a recompile and then put up a separate "XP compatible" link I guess. smile.gif

Speaking of, does MrAlex still need donations?

I discovered that instead of installing another addon to change the main Firefox button's color, you can actually just edit the [profile]/chrome/userChrome.css file and add this code to turn it back to the default (orange) color: http://paste2.org/p/2813981

Also I did the Resource Hacker to change Waterfox's icon back to the default Firefox one and it worked!
Might also want to try out FXChrome, and FXChrome Mods... Interesting visual alterations you can get out of it. (even make it look more like Google Chrome)

Just pin it once it's running or it pins the shortcut instead of the program.

firefox -ProfileManager

or equivalent on waterfox?

Um, how about waterfox.exe -ProfileManager :-> ?

The only differences between Waterfox/Cyberfox/... to Firefox are just custom installers and compiler settings/versions, the string "Firefox" has been replaced all over the place plus the main executable is (put your preferred flavor here).exe

Fyi: I just experienced my first Waterfox 18 crash, so it's not just other people's problem, w/o any attempt to troll I have to say I'm off to another browser until this is fixed - Waterfox just tore a longer text in a forum into the abyss :-< ... so speed is fine, but not at the cost of stability.

I'd love to submit detailed data to support the debugging and development, but all I can say it just froze and I had to kill the process :-\ which is rather unusual because I nearly never see a browser crash.

bit of an overreaction to ONE crash?

I've had WF18 crash too, but then every browser also crashed on the same page (this was confirmed by MANY users on another forum) except I think opera, oh, and some people had no problem with it - it was a strange issue

the web page was a particular news article on abc.net.au - all other news articles were fine for everyone, this one article crashed everything - it has since been fixed

so ... single crash is not a reason to change browsers, IMHO

I get the same error:

"Windows cannot find 'waterfox.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Well, I think so too - but it falls in line with other reports of v18 crashing and v16 not. I'll surely try Waterfox 19 again, but yesterday I was rather frustrated after the browser killed a longer text - so I'll just wait for a Cyberfox crash to make up my mind :-)

:-p of course you have to either give the full path to waterfox.exe (the directory is not in the windows search path) or open a cmd.exe window, cd to the waterfox directory and then type "waterfox.exe -ProfileManager" ... I just tried it, it works.
