If you look at my post, changing the user agent fixed Silverlight for me and it might work for you too. Just change it to: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; x64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 Waterfox/24.0

Ah yes, forgot the User Agent string. That did work, although Microsoft still notes it may not be fully supported. confused.gif Anyways, thanks for that tip as well!

@MrAlex, can you please confirm if there are profile issues with the latest Firefox? I don't want to mess up my profile if I install this.

I think I found a bug in the Waterfox 24 Preview.

I have the Application defaults in Waterfox 18 set for MP3 and PDF files to Save.
Waterfox 24 Preview ignores the set preference and opens a player or viewer in a new tab.

For PDF files, there is still an option button to choose to download the PDF file after it has finished loading in the Waterfox tab.

I tried changing and resetting the preferences, but that did not have any effect.

Windows 7 64 Bit.

Waterfox18
Waterfox 24 Preview 1
Firefox 24
Thunderbird 24
Seamonkey

Nitro PDF is also installed.

Thank you for all your efforts and a great browser.

I've managed to fix the profile issues! https://db.tt/EpGfCnlv

If people could test and let me know, this will be the version I release today if everything is well.

As always remember to uninstall the older versions. (For testing reasons).

Hi thechas. Could you try the above installer and see if you get the same issues?

 

Thanks!

Just a quick heads up for anyone testing that profiles work. If you have edited your profiles.ini as mentioned earlier in this thread, you should change IsRelative back to zero (the default). Otherwise you won't really be testing whether WF is fixed, as whatever the problem was appeared to be stopping it correctly handling this value.

As far as I know, everyone that edited that file, was making changes to the one located at the wrong location (to point to the details in the correct locations), so the original profile.ini should still be intact wink.gif

I renamed and later deleted my old AppData\Roaming\Firefox directory. That's how I tested.smile.gif And since it's now deleted I know for a fact that waterfox is using my standard firefox profile.smile.gif
