Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 448

post #4471 of 7308
By the way, I'm both experiencing this Flash problem with WF16 and FF18. I have many tabs opened and I'm using a RAMDisk software for the FF/WF cache. I've tried using a different RAMDisk software and the problem still persists.

EDIT: I tried the simple hack and I can't believe that it seems to be working! It's been about a year since I had this problem and finally a solution! The solution makes perfect sense because I have several tabs and the default snapshot interval of FF18 is set to 15secs which is too much. I don't understand why Mozilla can't do something about this.

Surely the dev would have posted any information about further potential problems or even delays? Come on people, don't let him down now, keep the faith - and looking at the forum there are mostly positive reactions and comments, so I'm still checking this thread because no way it's showing the pattern of a stalling or even dead project!

Hi everyone
As Mr Alex keep us in the dark I start to worry that the project is DEAD. Waterfox was the best think I ever had.

Hello,

there is the Waterfox already in a new version?
Firefox is already existing in 18.0.

I do agree with others, that same as we respect Dr. Alex, he should also respect us, and announce his progress, even if there is none. Sorry for my bitterness, but I feel I had waited for too long in the dark. I fear that the compiler issue is not resolved. I see no reason why mozilla will downgrade a part of its code, just to accommodate a buggy (?) compiler, so I'd bet my money on the problem still being around us.

+1. I give a few days, maybe until the end of week and I will move to another x64 build. No feedback, no news, nothing. As I said, it only takes a minute to post an update. I really like Waterfox, but life goes on.

What other options do we have? Have used WF for a while and have encourage others to do as well but now it feels like the project is not a priority.
In today's world having a project like this in your CV is more important than a degree. If it is a money thing, I was ok with AVG in the installer (which was optional to install) but a bunch of whiners who couldnt read made Mr Alex remove it. This would have at least give him more incentive to carry on with the project. Maybe now AVG doesnt look as bad?

The question is if the wf18 announcement is still valid since MrAlex wrote "the holiday season is here allowing me time to work on WF18" - but now the holidays have probably gone by. But if the project would be stalled and the compiler bug blocking wf17 would be still unsolved, I'm sure he would have told us to just have a little more patience, maybe it would be a good idea to skip wf18 and go straight to wf19?

Pale Moon. It even has its own forum. And it doesn't include the useless social nonsense Firefox is being stuffed with every other release.

I just tried to use Firefox 18 instead of WF16 and it crashed after a few minutes every time I used it. Not to mention I can tell it is slower even starting up. Really hope we get an update or something soon. I would hate for this project to die.

Could you please write about the differences between Cyberfox (my current browser) and Pale Moon? Other than they are certainly inferior to Waterfox that is, this is a Waterfox thread after all :-o

Edit: Does the Pale Moon version number 15.3.2 mean it's based on an older Mozilla version, unlike Cyberfox which is at the latest stable v18?
