Thanks again for all the hard work. Waterfox is the best browser there is.

A BIG THANKS to you Mr. Alex!!!

Running Waterfox Ver. 28.0 on a Win 7 Pro machine with no problems.

I really like Waterfox and have been using it for a few months now.

Again thanks for all your time and hard work.

i found the issue for some reason it was loading waterfox\browser\components\browsercomps.dll twice causing a (memory buffer overflow) when they conflicted
installing 27.0.2 solve the issue

Actually, we're in agreement, I was saying the same thing. I guess I should have phrased my last sentence (about the Bulldozer and later cores) a bit better.

However, now I'm sitting on an 8-core Bulldozer so... any chance those AVX/SSE4 enhancements work on my CPU as well?
In fact... have you ever tried a benchmark on the effects of each SIMD set on the speed of the browser? Like, baseline to SSE3, then to SSE4, then to AVX?
It'd be interesting to see which set has the most impact...

Starting yesterday both Waterfox 28.0 and Firefox 28 freeze when I try to open a private window. I have to use task manager to stop the process.

And in Facebook, I'm also getting these freezes. When you're typing something into Facebook, FB opens suggestion boxes and it's when this happens that both Firefox and Waterfox freeze and I have to use task manager.

As I said this started yesterday and I haven't added any addons or made any changes.

EDIT: Both are sometimes freezing when a page tries to open a new tab but not always. I have also Palemoon installed and that is not having the same problem despite having the same setup (addons etc) as Firefox and Waterfox.

Thread Starter 

Could anyone test out the portable version of 28.0? It works for me but I'd like to know if anyone has issues. This version finally has a portable profile as well, so it's a proper portable release! https://waterfox.codeplex.com/releases/view/121047

Have you tried a new profile? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

This turned out to be caused by HTTPS-Everywhere. After removing that addon, I have been able to open private windows.

I'm not the only one having this problem. There are a quite a few threads on the Mozilla support pages with exactly the same symptoms.

I'm wondering if Waterfox 28.0 has a memory leak?

I run Waterfox 28.0 on my Vista x64 laptop. It had 3GB of RAM, but kept running out of memory. So I recently bought more memory to max it out at 4GB. I can use Waterfox for about 1/2 day with 10-15 tabs open while I bounce around to different parts of a database, Facebook, and a few reference sites. I'll get a "low memory" message from the OS suggesting to close Waterfox. If I ignore the message than Waterfox pretty quickly goes "poof" and disappears. Then I usually notice about 2-2.5GB free up.

I like Waterfox, it's really fast. I'm wondering why 10-15 tabs of fairly static data, some pictures and a lot of "work" type activity can make it use up 2.5GB of RAM. Once it's restarted with the same pages loaded my system reports 1.5 GB Free.

I'm stumped.

Adobe keeps pestering me to update flash to v.13 , but of course the automatic update always takes me to the standard 32-bit download. In fact the Adobe web site seems to deny all existence of a 64-bit version.

waterfoxproject.org/plugins.php still points to http://aihdownload.adobe.com/bin/live/install_flashplayer11x64_mssd_aih.exe. I tried changing 11x64 to 13x64 and it does download an installer, but the installer fails to download what it needs to complete the installation.

https://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ and about:plugins tell me that I'm currently running 12,0,0,77.

Same for everyone?

adobe flash player beta site (installers are x64 & x86 all in one): http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html

current releases (also dual x64 & x86) : http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

(both links for version 13)

for waterfox & firefox you need the 'plugin' version, not the IE one.
