Well, yes I knew that but you can just imagine that I have hundreds of tabs opened right now and those won't use the E10 mechanism since they disabled the effect of browser.tabs.remote.autostart!

Ah right fair enough! Yes that does seem like a PITA!

Something is definitely wrong! Could you try the latest version? Everything should be up to scratch.
Latest build should've fixed the latest performance issues. Let me know smile.gif


Yes something definitely doesn't seem right. I'm trying to reproduce the issues but struggling to do so. Does seem like an issue due to lack of jemalloc in Waterfox. What are your system specs by chance?

here my specs i play heaps of games so my pc is not an issue
ROG Rampage V Extreme S2011-3
i7 5930K
64GB 2400Mhz
3x M550s raid 0
2x Titian black edition sli
watercooled

 

Ah I see you've got a fair bit of RAM! How much is Waterfox taking up in 33.0.2?

I need opinions and it's been a bit since I started a flame war. tongue.gif What's the general consensus on Pale Moon vs Waterfox? I've been running Pale Moon since earlier this week and have been quite satisfied with it. Is it even worth it to download Waterfox to try because they're practically identical, or is Waterfox objectively better in every way, or...?

MrAlex,

First off thanks for all your time, hard work and help with the Waterfox browser.
I know you put in a lot of time working on this project.

I just installed WF Ver. 33.0.2 and so far have had no problems.

I see listed under “Tools” “Add-ons” there is “OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc.”

I also see a message above this add-on that reads “Will be installed shortly.” suggesting that it will be downloaded and installed.

Is this add-on installed correctly, having the “Will be installed shortly.” message?

Again Thanks & Stay Safe.

The main purpose of Pale Moon is for people who want a Firefox-like experience without Australis and don't really care for the new feature sets.

Waterfox is for those who don't mind Australis and want a 64-bit browser with the Firefox feature set.

In particular, Pale Moon is now truly forked off with its own GUID separate from Firefox's, so if you care about 100% compatibility of your browser with all extensions you will want to use Waterfox.

Don't worry, we're all friends here ;). PaleMoon has become its own beast really. Plus the whole point of Waterfox is to be the fastest 64-Bit variant of Firefox. That's why builds take so long, because I've got to patch Firefox to make sure Intel's C++ compiler works properly. But the advantage are some nice performance gains over what Firefox offer, and most likely Palemoon as I'm not sure if it includes the newest performance upgrades since last I checked it used an ESR as a base. Up to you what you like really!

No worries, glad you like to use Waterfox! Hmmm not sure about that, I'll have a look. Doesn't really matter anyway as H264 works just fine and was more of a licensing issue for Mozilla.

Hmm the memory usage is definitely correct for the amount of RAM you have, but it definitely shouldn't crash. And you say there's no crash report? Even on 33.0.2 because I re-enabled the crash reporter? Very strange, I'll see what I can find out for you!

So far, so good with the latest build MrAlex, thanks! smile.gif

By default, if you go to http://www.youtube.com/html5 you'll see MSE & H.264 is disabled.

To fix it...
1) Go to about:config
2) Right click, New -> Boolean
3) Enter "media.mediasource.ignore_codecs"
4) Select true

Restart Waterfox. Go back to http://www.youtube.com/html5 and you'll see the option is now enabled!

Edit: Seems the videos H.264 video plays fine on Youtube that way, but there's no audio. WebM VP9 video works as expected.
Back to the drawing board.

Isn't the latest version of WF seem to be having some memory leaks? I have a lot of tabs but not enough to warrant around 2GB of RAM! I noticed that earlier when it was sluggish i was browsing with it for some reason.

With 25 tabs open (and some of the pages are rather image intensive), Adblock Plus, etc. WaterFox is using just over 1GB RAM for me, which is around what it normally has been in this situation for me.

A 64bit program is always going to use more memory than a 32bit equivalent, I've had WaterFox using way more than 2GB RAM in normal use before. 2GB RAM being used doesn't seem wrong at all to me.
