Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 689

post #6881 of 7308
For some reason, my Waterfox keeps crashing every single time after I updated from 35.0 to 38.0. The only thing I did after the update is updating IDM. I uninstalled IDM but the crashes still persists.

I am testing the browser in peacekeeper:

32 bit Firefox 35 - 4120
Waterfox 35 - 4930
.......
32 bit Firefox 38 - 4527
Waterfox 38 - 4574

Why a new Waterfox is slower?

I hope we can get rid of flash soon anyway and I uninstalled JAVA a while back and haven't missed it either.

Yes add ons seem to be getting phased out and Mozilla have made good way with Shumway.

Yep!

Have you tried using Shumway for certain flash apps?

Might be a Waterfox issue. Do you have any system specs?

Hmmm not sure. Might be a performance regression somewhere, will have to see what causes that. Could I have your system specifications?

Windows 7 SP1, Intel i5 3330, Intel HD 2500, HDD 7200 prm, 12 GB Ram 1600mhz, Waterfox with a clean profile.

Maybe it's disable-jemalloc ?

Tried shumway and so far working better than flash, so completely removed flash and no video problems whatsoever. I've also got HTML5 video everywhere installed .

Just browsing on Techspot and lo and behold I see Waterfox 38.0.1 vailable for download. smile.gif
post #6887 of 7308
With no previous update from MrAlex here or on the official website?
post #6888 of 7308
Yeah, go to techspot and see. I found it by accident. Click on "downloads" go to "internet tool" and "browsing."
post #6889 of 7308
Yeah, I saw it, but there's no way I'm downloading that before previous confirmation from MrAlex.

Wise idea. Anyone could compile Firefox and claim it's Waterfox, and inject malicious code into it.
