Waterfox 53: 24 April [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 720

post #7191 of 7308
What's the difference between this and the official firefox 64 bit? I've got both and as far as I can tell they're identical.

Operationally, you should notice no difference between Waterfox and Firefox x64.
Functionally, Waterfox normally runs a bit faster. The Waterfox developer (Mr. Alex) uses a different compiler for the Waterfox code and puts a lot of effort into optimizing the code for higher speeds and performance.

If you should notice any webpage that does not load properly or other operational problems with Waterfox, please post here so that Mr. Alex has a chance to resolve and correct any problems.

I'll switch over to waterfox then. All of my add ons work fine with it, just wondered if there was anything different, other than a prettier icon. Thanks.

Alex,

I downloaded the “Version 47 (June 2016)” from https://www.waterfoxproject.org/
After I installed it, relaunched Waterfox, a window opened stating “Update Ready to Install” “The update will be installed the next time Waterfox starts”.

I restarted Waterfox, another windows opens “Update Installed; The update was successfully installed”.

When I go to “Help” “About Waterfox” a window opens (see attached jpeg)
“About Waterfox” “Apply Update”.

I have tried applying update a couple times and still get “Apply Update”.
Attached is "Update History" (see attached jpeg)

Is there indeed another update?

Also I have found that under "Plugins" and clicking on "Check to see if your plugins are up to date "is not working. I also mentioned this in post #7172.

Thanks Alex,

WetLook

I just checked and there was an update to 47.0.1 and it installed fine. You might want to try to manually download the installer and try that.

Same problem here with the plugin update check not working (not sure if it worked in 47.0).

Prime2515102,

When I go to "Help", "About Waterfox", I see "Waterfox is up to date" now.
Alex must have tweaked something. As you can see by my post above, the Ver. 47.0.1
shows as being installed and still had "Apply Update".
Also did you see Ver.47.0.2 shows up in the "Tools", "Options", "Advanced", "Update Tab",
click on "Show Update History". What is the latest update version you see. It will be the first one listed.

Baldone,

Should we be using the web site "reddit.com/r/waterfox/comments/" when we post comments?
Is overclock going away?

The reason I am asking is I see Mr. Alex commented on a post like the one I posted (post #7196) four days ago,
and I am still awaiting a response here.

Thanks for you reply also.

WetLook,
I check both because there have been times Alex responded earlier here.
Remember too he was on vacation recently and no doubt is still dealing with the flood (I believe it was) damage to his home and the challenges of his new job. Can't fault a man for puttiing such issues ahead of monitoring and responding to the various forums/websites.

I agree with you. The flooding would be a pain & time consuming.
I did not know of Alex's new job. Good luck with your new job Alex.

Thanks for your help Baldone!
