Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 707

post #7061 of 7308
A few days ago I started having an issue with Netflix. I receive error code F7701-1003. It has to do with DRM settings, however this solution is not listed in the options menu for Waterfox. It is, for Firefox and Palemoon, am I doing something wrong, because I really like WF, and want to keep using it. As mentioned this only just started in the past few days, right around the time all the apps were being updated, so I assume their browser was too.


Thank You, in advance.

Same problem here, I think it has to do with the new Firefox 42 which has some changes in the way certain content is handled and Netflix assumes we all use the latest Firefox..

Anyway, now that Firefox officially releases 64 bit versions will we still get new Waterfox versions? I've noticed that we haven't received the latest 2 Firefox updates.

This website says there will not be NPAPI support (whatever that means) for the official 64bit FF.

I believe NPAPI is plugin support.
post #7065 of 7308
In official x64 version after v41.0a1 they added a whitelist for NPAPI plugins.
And the only plugin that is white listed is Adobe Flash? Silverlight, Java, MsOffice, MsLync and so on is not on the list.
Devs took the decicion to blacklist all but Flash..
Read about it here and let them know it's NOT OK!

Perhaps this can be a new project for our beloved MrAlex, Waterfox could be the official x64 version that allow plugins.smile.gif

Waterfox 40.1.0 installed through prompts from the browser that an update was ready. Great smile.gif !
post #7067 of 7308
Mr. Alex,

I have disabled my AVG virus protection. I have disable Malwarebytes.

I go to "Help", "About Waterfox",




I click on "Apply Update...", a window opens "New Version Available",




I click on "Get the New Version", and then I get a window "Update Failed".




What do I need to do to get this update from "Help", "About Waterfox", "Apply Update"?
I know I can DL this program from https://www.waterfoxproject.org/ so please don't suggest this option.
There are people that would like this 40.1.0 Update available thru the above mentioned steps.

I know this project is time consuming and a lot of work, and I for one appreciate
what you have done, and are doing. thumb.gif

I also had 2 computers that would not update from the update button in Waterfox.

Manual update from the waterfox.org website worked for both.

Hey all! Really sorry for the tardy replies here lately, been busy trying to balance everything! Reason why Waterfox is on 40.1.0:

 

Quote:
Just a quick heads up why there hasn’t been any news from me in regards to the latest Firefox release. Mozilla have a new tuple header that they’ve created and gets used fairly frequently and unfortunately, this causes an internal compiler error as can be seen here.

I’m just waiting for Intel to let me know when it gets patched and then the next release should be ready.

Until then, I’ve patched all the security issues released in v41 and v42 into 40 and will be releasing it as 40.1.0. This version also has support for WebP (.webp) image files!

Hopefully you've got the new update :D

If so there is now a x64 release channel Firefox?
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/42.0/win32/
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/42.0/win64/

Any thoughts?

They are both from the release channel.. Meaning they are official releases.

I have also learned that in x64 code Mozilla have chosen since v40 beta to disable all plugins but Adobe flash (and I think 2 other).
Meaning Silverlight, Java, Microsoft Lync and so on are not accessible or installable no mater what we users do.
Perhaps that's the reason it's not working for me in Waterfox to?

Waterfox won't have the limitation Mozilla have put in place.

Apparently Amazon has ditched Silverlight and Flash (finally!) but I'm getting this error.

Is there anything I can do to make it think I'm using 32-bit Firefox to see if it actually works?

 

I've returned a useful config entry: general.useragent.override.<URL>. Try using it for Amazon: Go to about:config, right click > new string: general.useragent.override.amazon.com with a value of something like: 

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0

Is it supposed to?

Answer:
Oops that's my fault, the update file didn't get updated on the website! I'll sort that out :-)

Thanks for all your hard work and time spent on this project.

 

It should be up now for the latest build :-)

Should be fixed in 40.1.0 thanks to the general.useragent.override config. The reason being Netflix has decided to only allowe official Firefox builds ( or at least what they think is official ;) )

Ah would be good to see what causes this. If you could follow these steps:

 

Quote:
  1. In about:config, make sure app.update.log is set to enable
  2. Launch the browser to the default homepage (preferably with no active JavaScript)
  3. Open the browser console (Ctrl+Shift+J)
  4. Click the Menu Buttons (), click help Help-29 and select About Waterfox
  5. Try to apply the update
  6. The browser console should log the process (logs relevant should start with app.update or similar)
  7. Copy and paste log here (or pastebin.com)

If you could do the same as above that would be great to see what the issue is upgrading to 40.1.0!
