Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 612

post #6111 of 7308
Non-PGO version crashes with me with WebGL (html5test.com and WebGL test on peacekeeper.futuremark.com).
PGO version show me a huge drop in rendering test and Canvas test on Peacekeeper (-33%) and a small drop in javascript (-6%) compare to 32.0 version.

When I try to install Waterfox I get an error msg saying it needs Vista 64-bit or higher to install. I'm running Windows 8.1 64-bit.

I've been having a problem with running Flash games in full screen mode ever since I installed the 32.0 update. When I am in full screen mode, and I am kicked back into windowed mode (for example, to post to my Facebook wall), then Flash player crashes. It crashes 100% of the time, and it only happens in Waterfox since the latest update. No problems at all in IE, Chrome, or Firefox with the same conditions. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, clearing all caches, but nothing seems to fix the problem.

Hope I'm posting to the right place. Thanks!

Okay guys so we've got two versions of 32.0.3 that are ready for release, the one which gets release just depends on who's faster: A PGO version and a version without PGO. Could someone run some external benchmarks and see which runs faster for them?
PGO
Non-PGO

When I benchmark PGO seems faster but that's because it was profiled in this computer. 

can u be more specific which test/s to run ?

 

Pretty much anything that you usually use :) so like PeaceKeeper, JavaScript benchmarks etc.

I have confirmed in Windows Task Manager that it is definitely Waterfox and it still has the correct icon. I have also tried restarting with addons disabled but the "Firefox" title remains. Renaming my profile and creating a new one restores the "Waterfox" title, but this must have an explanation and hopefully a fix which doesn't involve playing with new profiles.

Running waterfox 32.0 with Classic Theme restorer (although this was disabled in the "addons disabled" test above).

 

Hi Bob this is the right place for now! That's very interesting. Have you tried running Waterfox with a different profile to see? http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_multiple_profiles_-_Firefox

The only reason it'd rebrand itself is due to an add-on or language pack.

Hmm that's not good at all! Does anyone else get a crash with WebGL? And I was worried that would happen with the PGO version. I see an increase in performance since 32.0 but obviously so this system.

Have you tried running Flash 64-Bit on Chrome 64-Bit or Internet Explorer 64-Bit? Most of the time theres nothing I can do about 64-Bit plugins.

Yes I had tried a different profile which had worked but I hadn't wanted to go through moving everything across if it could be avoided. I had also tried disabling addons but hadnt thought of language packs. I had the en-GB one installed, I think when I had updated to WF32 I had forgotten that pack came from WF too and had installed the FF one. The titlebar issue must have been there ever since and it was the crash that drew my attention to it!

I found the correct WF lang pack on the sourceforge page and that fixed the issue, so many many thanks smile.gif. Will the pack be good for all 32.x versions or will I need to update it with the new 32.03?

Many thanks again for your help and the quick fix.

Bob

I downloaded it from Waterfoxprogject.org yesterday, v32.0. I assume that's the latest version?

Hi and thanks for making Waterfox. I have a question/suggestion: Why does Waterfox use the default firefox profile? Why should I tweak my shortcuts and and make a new profile manually?

Pale Moon does this by default, and I expected the same when I installed Waterfox.

I did this so people could transition seamlessly between Firefox and Waterfox, so no-one would have to hassle with moving profiles.

Yes it will be replaced but at the moment it's just a dummy website so not everything is live yet. It will launch with Waterfox 33.0

Hi Trommy yes I'm aware of this. It happens every time without reason. I'll be addressing this in Waterfox 32.0.3 portable so that automatic updates are disabled. Your profile data located in /data is unaffected so you can just move it over when the new download is available.
