Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 659

post #6581 of 7308
Just made this account for 2 reasons:

1. I have to give you some huge kudos for Waterfox's development.thumbsupsmiley.png

2. I'm having some issues with netflix not playing at all.headscratch.gif

I finally narrowed it down to Silverlight not running.

Ive tried MS's tut to remove a damaged Silverlight installation, and then reinstalled it but had no success.sad-smiley-002.gif

Silverlight pages just won't PLAY.

On netflix I just get a black screen instead of the Silverlight buffering GIF image.

Same thing happens on any other page running Silverlight, its just blank were the Silverlight media should be...

This wouldn't happen on version 34 up until a week ago, so I updated to 35.0 but still have the same results.

I had installed some plug-ins (FlashBlocker and Ghostery) and deleted them thinking this was the problem, but I still get the same results.

Silverlight seems to be installed correctly and will even run with no issues on both Chrome and IE.

Any help, tips, links, suggestions, and/or comments are welcomed.

If you need some type of feedback or specs just let me know please.

Did you check that WF didn't block the plugin by default?

Why... do they realize Netflix still uses silverlight i mean crap why cant they switch to html like chrome already.
post #6584 of 7308
Just out of curiosity, are there any about:config tweaks specifically for Waterfox, or is it best to just leave them as is?

Firefox 35.0.1 came out, will we have a new version of Waterfox?

Nvidia and Intel drivers installed. Forced use of Nvidia card only after explorer.exe gets loaded. (and explorer also runs Nvidia-only)

Good tip, but no luck. I've had this problem with Firefox for a long time. It's weird that other browsers work.

On brighter news, I've been using Waterfox 35 now for a bit, and it's running great. thumb.gif

 

Mm that is very strange! But glad to hear you're liking it.

However I have a problem with this preference " network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris " It's for NTLM auth. Meaning for example AD logon is pushed thru browser for intranet and so on.

It doesn't seem to be working in either WF35 nor in FF35
According to a friend that tried to sniff the trafic, the data sent by FF/WF is quite different from what is being sent by a working IE11.

Any chance anyone know whats wrong with v35? It worked just fine in v34.xx version.

Thank you so much for a great browser Mr.Alex.smile.gif

Glad to hear you're enjoying Waterfox. Might be an Firefox issue like Quantum Reality says.

Hmm very strange, I've tested Silverlight and it works fine.  So you say it worked on 34.0 but stopped working for a week?

FF should have a message saying if you'd like to enable it though. Hmm. Thanks for all your help in the forums btw!

Well I suppose it's for security reasons. It's the same thing Chrome are doing, removing support for NPAPI plugins.

Not really, the default settings are generally the best. Feel free to look around the web though! I'm sure people like to experiment with the settings.

Updating the Waterfox codebase to 35.0.1! Should be available very soon.

Nvidia and Intel drivers installed. Forced use of Nvidia card only after explorer.exe gets loaded. (and explorer also runs Nvidia-only)

 

Is there a way to force the Intel drivers to use Waterfox instead of NVIDIA?

Why is my WF34 not detecting that an upgrade is available, again? This is on three computers already.
