Flash videos play normally in Internet Explorer, but do not load at all in Waterfox. I am left with a blank white space where the player should be. Is there a setting I need to change in Waterfox, perhaps in the AboutConfig file? Is the Flash player looking for Firefox.exe rather than Waterfox.exe? Do I need to change a key in the Windows Registry?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Spurred,

Click on Tools, then click on Add-ons. Click Plugins. Look at the list of Plugins. For Shockwave Flash 14.0.0.179. Check to see if it reads Ask to Activate or Always Activate. It should always read, "Always Activate".

Also make sure that you have the latest Java 8 Update 20 installed and set to Always Activate.

I am really hoping the Waterfox version 32.0 update will fix the massive memory leak in version 31.0. I have 8GB or memory and Waterfox can be the only thing running from bootup on my Windows 8.1 PC and I can have just 10 windows open and be using 99% of my memory. Killing Waterfox in task manager will often take me back to only 22% memory used and a restart with the same exact windows open will use only 25% of memory. I can leave it alone and come back later to find it has again reached 99% and the PC will be practically locked up. If I don't run Waterfox the PC will run all my security system (6 HD cameras) for months without a single issue.

Otherwise I really liked Waterfox 30.0 as it was very fast and I could open far more tabs in it than I ever could in Firefox, and it was pretty much bombproof. Firefox gets really whacked out when you open a lot of tabs.


UPDATE September 7, 2014
After updating and running Waterfox Version 32.0 for more than a day I can attest that the memory leak issue still exists.

More on the original issue.
The memory leak is not a consistent problem. I can often run for hours with relatively low memory use with a few Waterfox windows and maybe a couple dozen tabs open, then suddenly the memory will start to climb from say 35% used to 97% used with very little additional use and even when not increasing the number or types of tabs open. After that sometimes killing Waterfox in Task Manager reclaims the memory very quickly, and other times none is reclaimed and a reboot is called for.

I am happy to offer my help testing to resolve this issue.

Waterfox is most noticeably faster than Firefox. i look forward to seeing all the kinks worked out.

Do you have any ideas where I should look for the conflict and how I can correct it, other than creating my profile from scratch? Can I manually uninstall or delete Adobe Flash from Waterfox and let Adobe install it anew?
Delete prefs.js maybe?
I have also this problem, but I have used another firefox and works, isn't Waterfox, I think flash problem because after a update, flash stop works.

Hi All,

Question: Does the 32-Bit Firefox Version need to be installed in Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Service Pack 1, in order for the Updates to be installed? The update failed to install.

I have the 32-Bit Firefox Version installed in Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit Service Pack 1 and the slow update, downloaded slowly, but installed successfully.

That sounds like a different issue.


Either way, after rolling back to v28 when v31 was released I finally updated yesterday, followed Prime2515102's tip on the previous page and everything is as smooth as ever once again. Thanks.

just wanted know know if anyone can test this out. on the v.32

I am having a problem with google search. if I click on a search link. it opens a new tab. ( that is the setting i have in Google search ).
It does open a new tab . But, it opens the same page. It will open the link in a mew window. with the right link.

Can anyone test this out?

I just want to know if it is me or WF v.32 . because v.31 works right.

Interesting.

When I look at the Google Search settings, there is only the option to open the search item in a new window.

When I enable the browser.search.openintab option in about:config, it opens a new tab when I use the search box.

Could it be that Google removed the option to open the search result in a new tab and you still have it in WF31 by default?

the google option is checked on mine. It just means to open in a new window. Is just a new tab window.


browser.search.openintab - is the option that sets the search box option.
it is when you put in a search in your searck box in the browser. if it will be on your page or new tab.
My is set to false. But, that is not the problem. It works fine.


I'm talking about being on the google webpage . Do a seach, then clicking on a search link..
then v32 will open a new tab. But the tab shows the same page as the google search.

and it does it on other hyperlinks, too that are suppose to open a new tab. Just wanted someone with v32 to test it.
Open up a few windows , then do it.

I went back down to v31 and it works fine.
