Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 643

post #6421 of 7308
Mr. Alex,

I found this issue.

I am using Win 7 Pro SP1. with WF Ver.33.0.2

Latest LastPass browser extension for Firefox 2.0+ is Ver. 3.1.50

When I go to “Tools”, “Extensions”, and click on the “Tools for all add-ons” Drop Down Arrow at the top right and click on “Check for Updates”, the “Available Updates” that is found is “LastPass 3.1.75 Update”.

This LastPass 3.1.75 Update, is for: Safari (No Binary Features)
LastPass browser extension for Apple Safari without a binary component. Features dependent on a binary component such as automatic logoff after idle and sharing of login state with other browsers will not function.
Supports Safari 5+

The latest LastPass update for WF/FF 2.0+ is Ver. 3.1.50.

When a new LastPass extension update becomes available for WF/FF, will it be recognized and will we be able to update the LastPass extension in WF?

Waterfox just gave me an update prompt for 34.0, but trying to apply it gets me the following:
Code:
updater.exe - System Error

The program can't start because libiomp5md.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

I updated to the current build in the same way and it worked fine back then; is there something different about the update feature in this build?
I'm just asking because I'd rather have a working internal update feature than to have to monitor for updates elsewhere all the time.. rolleyes.gif

EDIT: Manually downloading WF34.0 from your page and attempting to install it yields a regsvr32 crash during installation:

Any thoughts?

System specs:

i4790K
Gigabyte Gaming 7 MB
16GB DDR3 1866 ram
XFX DD R9 270X
Gigabyte 6870OC
Windows 8.1 pro x64

 

Is this isolated to the Omega drivers?

Does a faster browser also mean it consumes less battery on a laptop because it finishes rendering and such quicker and can go back to idle?
I wonder if AVX and such don't increase the power usage of my CPU (haswell)


I've just updated to waterfox 34 from waterfox 33.
Memory usage is about 1/3th less with malloc during normal usage:thumb: and the browser feels smoother too.

CPU usage is about the same (less peaks during benchmarks, average is slightly higher and the browser is no longer unresponsive)
Benchmark scores are 6% better (tested with sunspider and peacekeeper) and browsermark reported 10% faster. thumb.gif

Btw: did you change the waterfox logo? tongue.gif
Which Windows SDK do you use to build waterfox?
Which Intel Compiler version?
Which visual studio version?

 

I don't think there'll be anything that noticeable! Good to hear about the memory usage and benchmarks! :thumb: yes changed the logo as well!

 

Edit forgot to add specs:

-> Windows 7.1 SDK

ICC 13 SP1 Update 3

Visual Studio 2010

 

Maintains compatibility with XP this way :)

 It's coming, I have to make separate builds for portable so it'll be ready tomorrow at the earliest.

It depends on the add-on, but usually it'll update when an update is available automatically. LastPass mentioned they don't support 64-Bit builds, but usually everything works fine. Just have to wait for an update I'm afraid if anything is broken!

That updater issue is very strange. It shouldn't have any issue with libiomp5md.dll unless something is interfering. Did you have an AV enabled when doing the automatic update?

 

As for the installer, amazon's CDN cached the old installer instead of the new one that fixes the issue! Basically the installer is trying to register tcmalloc except it's not meant to be registered so regsvr32 crashes, but it doesn't affect anything at all! Just doesn't look very good to have it crashing as it'll confuse people! Everything should be sorted now.

No, I noticed it on AMD's previous beta release which was 14.11 (the first drivers used since building my new machine). I don't seem to have the issue when hardware acceleration is turned off though.

Oh I see, so it doesn't occur with hardware acceleration on! Hmm, and I suppose Firefox works fine? Have you tried running safe mode? https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode

 

Even Firefox says this about hw acceleration:

 

Quote:
 With some graphics card and graphics driver setups, Firefox may crash or have trouble showing text or objects on pages when using hardware acceleration. You can try turning off hardware acceleration to see if it fixes the problem.

You shouldn't notice a difference between it on or off though since you have quite a powerful CPU.

The option to remove search engines in WaterFox 34 is missing, please add it back:


post #6429 of 7308
Waterfox on two of my computers detected that there is an update avaialbe (34.0) and upgraded successfully. One of my computers though does not detect the update and it says "waterfox is up to date" even though it is just 33.0. Why is this?

ISTR this is a known issue with Firefox and variants from time to time.
