Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 712

post #7111 of 7308
I'm using a proxy server with auto-detect proxy settings set in the network options of WF. After upgrading to WF 43.0.4, opening WF does nothing. The tabs just hang there. When I configure WF to use No Proxy (my firewall is not set to block port 80 and port 443 so I can choose to use the proxy or not), everything works properly. Any ideas on this?

I manually specified the proxy server IP address and port number and everything worked also. So the problem is the auto-proxy detection of WF 43.0.4. It doesn't detect proxy.dat properly.

What happens if you use "System Proxy settings"?

It does work when you set it to use "system proxy settings" but doesn't forward traffic to the proxy server. This is a known issue in FF/WF (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=621429). So now even auto-detect proxy settings doesn't work.

Upgraded WF through the usual autoupdate channel. Noticed the d/l was 95 megs whereas the WF 43 installer from the website is 72 megs. What gives?

Also, setting "media.autoplay.enabled" does not properly forbid Youtube from loading an HTML5 video, though the video player subwindow will be blank and not display images - Mozilla and other websites claim that FF 43+ will properly recognize this setting.

No idea if this is a WF issue or an issue with the underlying FF codebase.

I confirmed another issue wherein when WF is set to save the session (multiple tabs) when exiting out of it, it restores most of the tabs (probably the set of tabs up to a few hours ago) but not the latest ones. I then tried closing some tabs that were in the set that keeps on restoring, closed WF, and then it restored those closed tabs again! It seems to me that the sessionstore file is not being overwritten with latest data whenever it gets closes. I've been a very long time user of FF/WF and love the session saving feature and this is the very first time I've encountered this. Can you please help MrAlex?

Like others who have posted elsewhere (reddit, etc.), I am experiencing repeated crashes when using flash under 43.0.4.. Watching the process seems to indicate that memory isn't being refreshed/dumped and once it hits a certain level... CRASH. I can get maybe 3 minutes of streaming video before this happens. This wasn't a problem with 40.

Suggestion for WaterFox. I want the "browser.newtab.url" option back.

This option was removed in Firefox 41. It's to prevent hijackers from overriding your new tab page, which is pointless when your home page can be just as easily modified.

BUMP!

I was using waterfox up until the latest build, and have switched back to firefox since they now offer 64 bit.
Is there much difference between the two browsers? firefox seems to be a bit more compatible with some things, netflix is one example (netflix doesnt operate properly using waterfox for me - and netflix offers no support for the browser)
