You need that addon named "classic theme restorer". What you want isn't coming back (other than using that addon).

There's a Firefox "ESR" = "extended support release", which is currently either v24 or v31 and updated when security issues or bugs are found. Even that one probably won't make you happy because it's currently transitioning into the v31 version. I don't know how long that v24 ESR will be supported or if support is already running out and you're expected to switch to v31 ESR.

It's not that I don't like the sleek design of Waterfox 30+, but I like the add-on bar and I like the menu in the top left. If you combine that with the new, sleek design and fix the memory issues with the browser, its perfect for me. I see that 'Classic Theme Restorer' brings back the add-on bar and possibly the menu button in the top left, but does it really work well with Waterfox 30 and won't give me any more issues than I already have?

Alright, well for the time being, I'll stick to your advice deepor and stay on Waterfox 30 with the 'Classic Theme Restorer.' It's not that bad and seems to satisfy my requirements. thumb.gif

I wonder if the developers of Waterfox know about all the new problems with Waterfox 31.
post #6016 of 7308
I installed Waterfox 31.0 to upgrade form Waterfox 28.0 and I can't believe it, my 50+ tabs are all gone! What a bummer! Even the sessionstore.js.bak is immediately overwritten with the new sessionstore.js so no backup. Just unbelievable.
post #6017 of 7308
Waterfox constantly hangs and a bar which says (Not Responding) covers the tabs. This has been happening for some time, but it is happening more often since upgrading to version 31. I have a relatively new 64-bit build running an i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30 GHz with 16gb of RAM. My main drive is a 128GB SSD.

The Developer, MrAlex does monitor the forum and also monitors the Q&A section on the Waterfox home page.

Make sure that you post details of your issues there.

I have two systems running Waterfox 31 and have experienced no performance or Memory leak issues.

My laptop has fewer background processes running than my desktop. However, both show about the same impact to CPU and RAM usage when I open Waterfox. Both systems also free up memory when I close Waterfox.

I do not have any specific suggestions for anyone with the performance issues as I am not having any myself.

I have four other browsers that run flawlessly so I know it's Waterfox causing the issues but thanks for showing me their main site. I have also tried waterfox 30 again and it runs fine too.

thechas, not much point posting all that without your spec, so whats your spec, are you AMD or Intel?
