Even if I have multiple tabs open, (and I have warn me when closing multiple tabs) there's no warning, no nothing, Waterfox just closes. And when I start it back up, all my tabs are gone.

Am I doing something wrong? Is this a problem with Windows 7 64 bits? I never had this issue with Firefox.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Waterfox has been outdated for quite some time now.

Perhaps it was an issue fixed on a later version.

Firefox (Stable, 32-bit) is now up to version 21 and the Nightly (Firefox Beta, 64-bit) is up to version 24.

Waterfox is dead.

Long live Cyberfox!

I also agree with this. I really think MrAlex should stop giving us false hopes already. I'm tired of waiting for Waterfox forever. I was a devotee for Waterfox also.

So far I switched from Waterfox v18 to Cyberfox v21 and really love it. It's just as good and I really like the new "Download button".

I don't like that stupid down-arrow, and I don't like that Pale Moon hasn't yet been reconfigured to delete the new downloading history, even though you can disable the animation and reinstate the old download window.

The mantra of this thread is: please don't pressure mralex for updates! It was only on april 7 (not 1st) that he let us know that wf is still under development, and the latest news here was he was about to solve the computer issues. So people, keep the faith and keep checking this thread, only the patient will be rewarded - a really loyal fan never leves the true path just for some delays and a little lack of communication.

I'm giving cyberfox a tryout, but I'll be back....

I'm using the Firefox 64-Bit Nightly for now on my Win7 machine at work.
But I'll be back on Waterfox as soon as MrAlex releases a new version.
The FF nightly can be somewhat unstable. A few days ago, the nightly crashed on me on the FedEx tracking page (seems to be ok with the latest nightly.)

I've been using Nightly for years, and in my experience real bugs/crashes are far in between and can be solved by reverting to a version a couple of days older.

What often appears as a bug is that highly optimized, corporate web pages aren't adapted to the newest gecko engine (but to IE6...) and that some ff addons lag behind concerning compatibility. That's why I'm using a stable ff version by now, fortunately Cyberfox is to the rescue, but of course only until the real deal (Waterfox 22 by now) is released!

Firefox, and especially Flash, especially with lots of Addons/Extensions, will allocate lots of memory for cache on the assumption your operating system will just reclaim it back -- on Windows, this is called a "Working Set". I have a ton of tabs open in Firefox with a ton of extensions, and it regularly gets up to 2GB+ on my 8GB machine. However, it rarely gets this way when I actually am in danger of running out of physical memory -- Windows empties the Working Sets of programs like Firefox. The program Process Lasso can help Windows do this sooner automatically, if you like. Another fun program to use is Sysinternals's RAMMap: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/ff700229.aspx

How to have fun with Firefox & RAMMap
- Load up Firefox, get a billion tabs open (especially Flash & videos and such)
- Load up RAMMap
- Go to the "Empty" menu option, select "Empty Working Sets" (yes, this is safe)

For additional fun, add the "Memchaser" extension and enjoy making screenshots like this (hint: look at the bottom next to Resident):
