Waterfox 50: 21 November [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 475

post #4741 of 7267
As I don't harass anybody I don't know why you would reply like that. In fact I'm one of the many who said its working well was just wondering if he was doing the newer FF code. Since you've complained mightily and trumped cyberfox repeatedly while I'm only advocating for WF it makes your reply somewhat strange. redface.gif Besides just recompiling the added code in .0.2 isn't like doing the whole 18 again. wink.gif
I know what it is to have a busy life and many things to do thats why I was politely asking if he was going to incorperate the new changes which people are very happy about in FF to the Waterfox code biggrin.gif

I thought (from WF's website) that actually MrAlex had managed to get some compiler bugs fixed?

really?

Firefox 18.0.1 released January 18, 2013
Waterfox 18.0.1 released January 19, 2013

that's a day.

Saying it took two months is gross misinformation at best

I think he/she means it took 2 months between versions, as Mralex had compiler problems and did not release WF17

Sorry, I didn't want to offend you, basically I just quoted the standard reply from the wf16->wf18 delay which most likely also applies now.

However my memory fails me if I try to remember when I "complained mightily" about wf, it's still my favorite browser, though I was surprised by some benchmarks I ran and the recent crash reports, but those were probably due to a ff bug as I also noted. The thing I share was my intermediary feeling that the communication about wf's future and release cycle could be further improved, but now that Cyberfox has faster updates I'm happy to wait for wf until it's done. Imho this also doesn't qualify as a biased "trumping cyberfox repeatedly", I'm just stating facts here.

Yes, that's correct - though I didn't research the exact time between wf16 and wf18.

You are the one who continuously post about Waterfox crashes, and introduce the other 64-bit browser in your every single post, sometimes even with the actual download link. If this were my forum I would ban you for spamming.

I am sorry you feel so strongly about it, it is certainly not my intention to infuriate other forum members - though there seem to be different approaches to a discussion as seen in the benchmark posts (is it allowed to post a benchmark where wf is not first?). I just like to ask you to look through my posts http://www.overclock.net/forums/posts/by_user/id/318182 any you'll see that you're simply mistaken - I posted the crash only once, completely in context with user users even switching back to wf16, and then discussed if it's a wf or a ff issue, and also in this context noted that the js fix is implemented in the other 64bit browser so it should be possible to isolate the cause.

And I certainly don't promote one of the other 64-bit browsers in every post - if you have a look I recently helped with other profile manager, flash and compiler issues and expressed support for MrAlex priorities of real life over unpaid projects.Reflecting on this I find your demand for a ban completely unfunded and would humbly like to ask you to review your opinion and to do more research before jumping to conclusions again - thanks.

I already reported 1 day after the release of waterfox 18.0.1 that random cpu spikes are appearing. It eats 90% of my core i-7 (on all 8 threads) and makes waterfox 18.x useless for me.

Firefox 18.0.1 works without any troubles.

and those compiler issues have been resolved and are irrelevant

However, I do agree, there's no need to hound "MrAlex" about the next version

Hey, spent about half an hour or so perusing this thread, and so far haven't found any real solution to this problem I'm having.

Every time I update Waterfox, I get the same two/three issues: The first is that it gives me the MinVersion and MaxVersion error (i.e. for this update it was 18.1 and 16.1). So I do what people suggest and run a clean install of waterfox, which sort of fixes that problem. But as soon as I do that, when I click on the desktop shortcut, I get the missing icon problem on my taskbar. The reason for this is because it's running as firefox.exe, and I know this because when I pin the open program to the quick launch part, and then try to run it again later, it says, "firefox.exe cannot be found."

I'm almost positive all three of these issues are caused because of a firefox.exe file that Waterfox wants in its Program Files directory. I've solved all these in the past by copying the newest Firefox.exe file into the waterfox one, and then setting its icon to the waterfox one, but I would much rather have a more permenant solution, and solve this at its source (rather than 'treat its symptoms,' so to speak).

Anyways, I post this because I get the feeling you guys know what to do and I appreciate any help you guys have to give. Thanks!

I'm running:

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit
90GB SSD Corsair Force 3
Radeon HD 6950 1Gb
8Gb 1333 RAM
750 GB WD HDD
