Sadly I do not have any drop-down arrow, as you can see in the picture, Chas. Any other suggestions?

I've been having an issue for a few weeks, on both Waterfox 27.0.1 and 27.0.2, where the browser window randomly flashes black or white for a split second while things are happening, especially while a page is loading or while animated images cycle. My current graphics drivers are Intel Graphics 9.17.10.3347 for the onboard Intel HD Graphics 3000, NVIDIA graphics 335.23 for a GeForce GT 540M. My CPU is a Core i7 2630QM and I'm running Windows 7 Professional.

This graphics issue doesn't happen in Firefox 27 or 28, just in Waterfox.

Uninstall flash and try without.

I had something like this happen once; it turned out to be a driver issue for me.

Thread Starter 

Sorry for the late reply everyone, this is a BIG release for Waterfox. This should catapult Waterfox back to the top of the performance charts ;) Here is a test build, could you guys please let me know what you think?

https://db.tt/sMbyX8TP

 

So what did those extra delays bring?

 

  • A complete, 100% ICC build! Yay! (As opposed to various VC and ICC build).
  • Profile-Guided optimisation is back, which brings nice performance improvements.
  • If you're running an Intel CPU, support for AVX2, SSE4.2, SSE4.1 and SSSE3 if your processor supports these instruction sets. AMD users, at the moment you only get up to SSE3 support
  • Using Mozilla's built in memory allocator as opposed to jemalloc, otherwise crashes occur.
  • Finally change the About dialogue to talk about Waterfox and to link to the Waterfox website (links not active yet)

 

Give it a whirl!

 

Edit: If you have missing .dll's:

Watching the following link in Firefox would achieve about 3 FPS. In Waterfox it's typically 12-15FPS

Sometimes I watch the news live at 5pm PST http://www.komonews.com/live
In Firefox Adobe Flash running full screen would skip and stutter along with both CPU's @ 100%. In Waterfox full screen the display is fluid and CPU1 @ ~90%, CPU2 @ ~70%.

This is not a conclusive measure/test, but my experience so far is the added performance improvement makes this older laptop compatible with today's applications!

I also run with Sync enabled to my OwnCloud Weave server and appreciate my Firefox config being used. Everything started up and works wonderfully!
I added Waterfox as the 64-bit browser recommended for Windows. https://arno.com/freesw.html

Whatever you're doing, keep up the good work!

 

Great to hear and nice to know that older hardware is still good! Edit: Just noticed, that's the exact same specifications on my laptop that I used to compile Waterfox with haha.

It's really slow loading photos, my feed is choppy like mad, and I've even re-installed, cleared cache constantly, disabled all flash elements, etc and it's still doing this. It's very annoying and I have to use Chrome to use FB most of the time now. Why can't FB just leave stuff alone?

 

Usually there are cache/cookie issues. You could try resetting it?

This... Exactly my issue with FB, sadly this is the only way me and my girlfriend can communicate.
