Got it. Thanks!

Sv: Waterfox 18.0.1: 19 January [Firefox 64-Bit]

Better to wait untill 20.0.1 is released.. NTLM auth is broken in FF v20.0.. Don't understand why they've broken it again.. Was broken in 18.0, fixed in 18.0.1, 18.0.2, 19.0 and 19.0.1 and now broken again.. Strange.. But I really hope 20.0.1 can be compiled by Mr.Alex..smile.gif

The last announcement a month ago said wf19 was coming, but now it might be best to go straight to v20?

Certainly.

From past experience we know that Alex likes to release only the latest version when he does release one.

He has logged in 13 hours ago.

He is from Cyprus but it says he is currently in England going to Uni.

But I'm sure he has family back home in Cyprus dealing with the government mess.

THe FAQ seems to be down and I don't have the time to go through 510 pages so I'm just going to ask, for somebody who has at least 5 tabs open at a time and can have up to 15 sometimes, will there be any noticeable performance improvements and will they be worth the transition to an unofficially supported browser? I'm currently using Firefox.

I've had 60+ tabs open in Firefox with no problem and the same goes for Waterfox (I use Firefox at work and Waterfox at home). Firefox used to shut down very slowly whereas Waterfox was faster but both have improved greatly in that regards so it really is a non-issue now. I don't think 15 tabs is going to be a problem for either browser assuming you have the memory for it.

For example, this thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/412389/official-screenshot-of-your-games-thread/14480 Certain pages that I try to view will cause the browser to crash (the URL is a link to one such page). Is WaterFox more stable than Nightly?

EDIT: Just installed WaterFox and it still crashes... Also, it seems to just load up Nightly when I double-clicked on the WaterFox icon. Hmm.
I use Nightly at present. Note that Nightly is an Alpha build of Firefox. It is not even Beta. It's not stable. It's in fact three versions ahead of the current Firefox release. It is the bleeding edge and therefore has many issues. The crash you noticed was brought up in Nightly 22 sometime around the end of March and has to do with certain pages with many high-resolution images. I don't personally know what the issue is, but I deal with it (either by hoping that a new Nightly fixes it, which the current version seems to have, or by using Chrome for those few pages) because it's a hell of a lot better than the microstutter in WF18.

And yes, when Nightly is running attempting to open Waterfox will open Nightly instead. This is because you cannot have two Firefox browsers operating at the same time due to profile conflicts. It is to prevent profile corruption and is there for your safety. Close out of Nightly completely, then try to run Waterfox again. wink.gif

Any chance that 20.0 is being uploaded/updated to the waterfox site now? The downloads section is giving me a 404. Fingers crossed that the new version is being compiled!

It's working for me. I wouldn't expect a new version of waterfox until v22.

To me it's a bit much to jump 4 full versions at a time.
2 I can cope with but 4 is to much.

Guess I'll have to move back to 32 bit browsing..frown.gif
