I included a screen shot showing the error.

What might be causing this problem?
I can access this web site using Internet Explorer 11.


I am using Windows 7 Professional (64Bit) SP1

I get the same error, I just went ahead and tried clicking that website.

It's an issue with the site itself. One of the scripts is broken. It doesn't crash if you have no script, but the site does not load at all. I wish java script would die already.

Are you having the same problem with this web site as kevindd992002 and myself.
Is Waterfox also freezing/locking up on you.
post #6914 of 7308
If I allow scripts it does the same thing, it crashes and i'm forced to start Waterfox in safe mode to prevent it from reopening the webpage, or else it's an infinite crash loop...

Not sure if it's been asked already but I get a ton of screen tearing when watching Youtube vids, esp 1080 60.

To add to the above, I can't play anything higher than 1080p on youtube, not buffering fast enough. It's not my connection, works fine in Chrome.

Thread Starter 

Hey everyone on OCN! Sorry its been so long since I've replied, just moved countries after uni! Anyway here's a little post about what's happened to Waterfo so fare:

---

So it has been a while since I’ve made a post due to a lot happening in the background. As always your feedback is really important in shaping how these things go. There’s now a small group of people who help develop the mobile apps and search engine separately from Waterfox.

I’d recommend reading this[1] post about the search engine and what it’s about.

Waterfox Search

The Waterfox search engine is now live at https://search.waterfoxproject.org[2] or from the browser since 38.1, just select it as your search engine to test it out! 39 will have it as the default search for new users. This search engine helps raise money for charity when you shop online, by taking commissions from retailers when you buy from their site. The websites who are part of the program will have a “GIVE” icon shown next to their link on the search results page. By choosing to shop on these sites, you will be generating funds for good causes.

Anonymity and Privacy

This has been a strong point for Waterfox and you don’t have to worry about any of your information here - we don’t collect any and the advertisers have NO clue who you are (we hide any information that could potentially identify you, similar to the way StartPage do it).

There is an issue though with generating revenue at checkouts for various stores such as Amazon in that the affiliate networks that generate money for the charities need to store a cookie to tell when you’ve completed a purchase. To counteract this, we take this cookie first and remove any of its abilities to know how you are, essentially making you anonymous to the affiliates.

I know Waterfox users are very tech savvy, so if you aren’t comfortable by this or think this is a bad idea, please let me know. It’s hard to find a way to get around this, as the affiliate needs to know when you make a purchase from one of the retailers. If you’d like diagrams or something similar to show the process, maybe that might help as well? Any idea for this would be greatly appreciated.

Mobile Apps

The mobile apps are developed in-house, which I hope you’ll enjoy some originality! They’re available to test at this current point in time for iOS[3] and Android[4] , still waiting for approval on Windows Phone and BlackBerry. As always, please leave any feedback :-)

Waterfox 39

Preview Download[5]

Sorry for the delay on this, I had initially planned to switch over to Clang to build Waterfox and managed to get it working! The problem is that performance is abysmal compared to an Intel C++ build. So I'd wasted about 2 weeks of development time and had to quickly revert back to ICL. Changelog isn't very exciting this release, nothing has really changed here. Hopefully the mobile apps and search will be good enough :D.

I hope everyone is as happy and excited about all these releases as I am - this is a great opportunity to do some real good on the web and with your feedback, we’ll be able to make the search experience as you want it. At the moment the it may seem slightly UK focused, but US users have access as well to retailers raising money for charity. We’ll be choosing a US based charity fairly soon.

Feedback

Please post your feedback in this thread, tell me exactly how you’d imagine your perfect search experience and what you like/don’t like about the search. Everything, down to the privacy policy or the colour of a link you don't like. After 4 years, it’s about time Waterfox started to make some waves.

Initial Charity

The first Charity which money will be given to is WellChild. There are thousands of children and young people in the UK living with a long-term or complex health conditions. WellChild is the national charity working to ensure the best possible care and support for all these children and their families wherever they are and whenever they need it.

Side Note

Here's some press about all this as well, you even get to see my face and learn a little about who I am :-)

The Telegraph - New search engine from Waterfox founder aims to take a punch at Google[6]

The University of York - Outfoxing the internet giants – York student aims high with his ethical browser[7]

The University of York - University of York student awarded Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Award[8]

Trusted Reviews - From bedroom coder to building a Google search engine rival[9]

These are all from interviewers who spoke to me directly! Also like I keep repeating don't forget to leave feedback, good or bad :-)

Smaller Side Note

Just to let you know there's also an unbranded version for users who don't use Waterfox called Storm and a new registered company called Storm Technologies (don't worry, just to handle giving to charity as it's highly regulated by the government and so a company needed to be set up for this). Only reason for this is that we couldn't use the name Waterfox to raise money for charities due to possible legal issues with the name.

the one thing im noticing is High ram usage. anywhere betweeb 2gb to 5gb when it gets chuggy which is pretty often. I am not running any addons except adblock. switching to chrome seems to fix all of my issues that im having. no chugging at all

That doesn't seem right. Does v39 linked above cause the same issues?

Unfortunately 38.1 still returns the error that it is not a valid Win32 program. I have tried uninstalling (via the Control Panel > Programs and Features) then reinstalling to no avail. If I am to manually full uninstall, is there a way to back up my profiles and addon and such. Also note I have been keeping FF up to date since Waterfox hasn't been working for the past month or two for me, if that causes any conflicts.

 

Its due to an issue on my part, v39 should fix it. Basically I wasn't telling the compiler to target XP systems as well!

Yes it would if you still have it :)

 HTML5 everywhere basically forces the source of the video to play in a HTML5 player. Shumway renders Flash applications (so not just video) natively in HTML5. So any old flash games you used to play for example would be translated to run natively in HTML5.

And its a fast browser.

 

I would enable Electrolysis but its still quite unstable and doesn't work on quite a few sites so I'd say its best to wait a few more releases before adding it to Waterfox.

Does hardware acceleration make any difference?
