On both Firefox and Waterfox.
Nor I in WF or FF on systems running Windows 7 or 8. No micro freezes or short lags either and even went back and ran off my core two duo system for a day to see if it was happening on there,nope.

Yes with about 10 tabs there are no problems. But with 50+ tabs in DIFFERENT TAB GROUPS (take note of using multiple tab groups here) I think you will notice the problem that I exeprience.

Hi,

Thanks for this fork of Firefox, it is very faster than Mozilla's 32bits version browser! biggrin.gif
I just have a problem with the default browser: I'm using Windows 8 and it seems that Waterfox is not recognized by Windows as opening Web pages...
When Waterfox ask me to become the default browser, if I answer "Yes", the window reproduced bellow is opened (it is peculiar to Windows 8) and propose to me to define which programs will open which file extensions and protocols. But Waterfox doesn't appear in this window, so I cannot define Waterfox as my default browser.
The worst is that IE has become my default browser biggrin.gif

This is a capture of the window that I mentioned:

Many add-ons can freeze WF as personnal menu or glassMyFox with dropdownmenu in glass.

Moin,

I do not understand :-( could you perhaps write in German?
As mentioned, my English is very bad.

At 50+ plus tabs, you could be running into CPU and Memory problems due to being overworked.

It takes a lot of resources to keep open 50+ tabs.

This is because Mozilla themselves have not tested that many tabs.

Why have that many tabs open? Surely there is a better way to multitask.

just tried having 3 tab groups with 50+ tabs open in each on this machine I'm using now running Win 7. No microfreezes or even small lags. Don't know what the difference between what you guys are doing than I but I'm not seeing it.
And I have to agree with Kenny,I'm a heavy user but don't know why you would need that many tabs open all at the same time.What can you focus on thats so important you can't open it later?Many ways in FF to get to things quickly when you need to.

Just my two cents, but as a programmer, I find I often have closer to a thousand tabs open than "50". The reason for this is simple - documentation is usually bad, and researching one fault often leads to researching other faults, alternatives, workarounds, etc etc etc... The end result can be literally over one thousand tabs open together in a handful of groups, of which none of the pages contained within will have any relevance whatsoever after the problem's taken care of. The only lags and freezes I've ever experienced have been due to add-ons and plugins. Mostly Flash.

That's weird, I really don't know what the problem is but you should try playing a youtube videos with this amount of tabs open and test. I would like to see if you have any problems.

And regarding the amount of tabs, oh many people can back me up with that. It's just like keeping a "to do" list in the background where you frequently check all the open tabs to see if some info are updated or not. It's not about focusing on anything. It makes life easier.

Oh, I don't know about that.........

Waterfox has been rock solid for me. And 50 tabs doesn't need much even if he's using a 5 year old PC. RAM is the biggie, if it's thrashing page files then thats a problem.


(Anyway, isn't that why people use x64 builds in the first place? Because they have workflows or preferred usage patterns involving heavy tab use? Mozilla studies regularly show a small but significant segment of users like this. 50 tabs is close to nothing on a recent i5 or i7 - a heavy tab user might open that many just to find a single item on EBay or read the news at lunch, or (as Reality says) for documents and reference information.)
