Hmm, not got either. 25GB usage?! Please tell me you've got a system with 64GB of RAM or had like a thousand tabs open?
Also could I have your system specs, I want to see if it's a recurring thing with certain configurations or not since I can't reproduce any leaks or so.

For some reason waterfox is not loading sites correctly.

Flash, Silverlight, Java updated to latest.

edit: Updated to 34.0 same issue.

edit: not adblock no addons same thing

I think the average usage after my "normal" day would be around 1.6-2.2GB with the previous versions. My total memory is 8GB. I've been using the test build all day and it's sitting at 1.4GB, so at least now it doesn't seem out of the ordinary. I'm pretty sure what caused the "leak" was a tumblr page/blog that had at least a few hundred MBs of image/video content on it and the RAM usage just kept increasing to a point that it froze my browser, even though I tried closing the tab.

 

Yes that makes sense then, either the website has too many objects and there's a memory leak or it's tcmalloc. Tcmalloc tries to anticipate memory usage, so say you're using memory intensive web pages frequently, it won't release the memory back to system in anticipation you'll carry on using memory as such.

Both are great honestly.

 

Well cf uses just the O3 switch which makes releases much quicker, Waterfox uses /Qparallel (makes loops that are safe to be run in parallel, parallelised), /Qax (whenever ICC finds code that can be improved by processor instructions such as AVX, SSE4 etc it does, the processor doesn't need to support the instructions so this is a safe flag to use (intel only, doesn't affect AMD) and /arch:SSE3 (makes all the base code use SSE3 wherever possible like Qax, except this is forced and for all processors (AMD is supported too :)) but getting these flags to work sometimes takes a while.

I don't seem to be able to change anything in the options menu.
It open about:preferences but I cannot click on anything at all in there. Not the tabs to the left and not any settings.
Anyone else have this problem? Is it a known problem I have missed info about? Will it be fixed?

Btw. I am running the preview of Waterfox v34.0

 

Hmmm, seems to be your system. Just tested 2 different systems, one AMD and the other Intel+NVIDIA and they can both interact with the options menu. Could be a hardware issue. Have you tried an empty profile? If it still doesn't work you can use the old interface by setting browser.preferences.inContent to false in about:config.

I wonder why this is happening to your system. I've just tested Octane on two systems right now, Intel+NVIDIA and AMD APU laptop and both run Octane without crashing.

This looks like an image problem right? Has happened a few times with Firefox as well, they've got a support article here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-images-not-show

Let me know if it helps. You could also try a blank profile to see if that helps too.

I'm not sure yet mate. Have you tried a new profile? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles

Usually solves the issue unfortunately it's a hassle to do often.

Strange, Options menu works perfectly in fail safe mode. But only partly (can use tab key on General tab) but no mouse interaction in standard mode.
Posting this if more people run into problems. Might be my theme or something. Will check that next.
Fail safe mode (hold shift while clicking Waterfox icon) works perfectly.

Tested to use default theme now. And Options menu was fully working.

I am using Clasic compact theme v.29.0a1

Great work Mr.Alex just as we are used to. smile.gif

I can confirm Waterfox 34 crashes when attempting to upload to Mega.co.nz. FYI - MrAlex, specs are in signature and yes I used a new profile, antivirus enabled/disabled makes no difference.

Umm really weird Clear cookies and cache worked but for some reason uninstalling did not affect it so i guess an uninstall leaves part's of browser still there.

Yes I see it happening now as well. I've tried other HTML5 upload forms without any crashes. Can any of you see if you find any other HTML5 website with upload function that crash?

Yes it's an old issue that's been happening for years. Strange it still happens.
