I need to revert my installation. Every problem I have ever had with Waterfox has returned in one single update (52.0.1) and it wasn't much better in the previous version (50.0).

 

Here you go. That's interesting, I wonder if it's anything to do with temporarily switching back to MSVC from Clang? What sort of issues have you been facing?

It was the issues with Flash Player where in this chat app the "browse" button to get a picture file wouldn't work (although, that broke again after a Flash update, so I think that's purely Flash in Waterfox (it works in Firefox fine). Now, when I type (in login, or while already logged in) the characters don't show unless I click outside the text input box, then the text I type appears. The odd thing is that it's doing this in several different Flash based chat apps.

On top of that, it got incredibly slow. Pages were taking roughly twice as long to display, and if it's a page with lots of media on it, the scroll will be locked until about 3/4 of it shows up (especially with embedded videos).

In all honesty, I may be in need of a clean profile, but I went back to 48.0.2. and it's ok (that browse button still doesn't work though, it turns out that that's off and on with various Flash updates).

I'll put 50 back and see what happens.

Now you need to update to ver. 52.0.1
It is working for me.

I couldn't tell you why, but I still can't get Waterfox to work for me. I've done numerous fresh installs, updated drivers. Installed Firefox to make sure that worked. Nothing. frown.gif

Why is it that most pages load so much faster in Chrome compared to Waterfox? And no, I don't use any proxies. It was like this since forever.

Hi All,

Is the Waterfox Updater broken? Waterfox Version 52.0.1 reports that it is Up-to-date.

I'm not sure if it's just me but when I added back the Airplane icon for Share and clicking it for the 1st time it tries to load a page and crashes waterfox.

WF 52 the latest one from downloads

If you are a reddit user, or look at a lot of images through your web browser, do not update to version 53. It's broken when trying to load URLs directly to a lot of images.

And trying to downgrade back to version 52 does not fix the issue.

Can someon explain why Chrome is a faster browser than Waterfox? If it weren't for the stupid tab size management in Chrome, I wouldn't have to resort using Firefox/Waterfox as these two are horrible in speed when having a 100+ tabs in the background.
