So I installed it on my spankin' new Core i5 machine running Vista 64-bit.
I installed the VC++ redist, then Waterfox. I had a bit of weird funkiness where during the initial load of Waterfox the minimize, maximize and close buttons seemed to be flickering and it didn't respond to a minimize when I tried. After some time it behaved normally and I was able to get stuff configured and set up.
What I've noticed is that downloads seemed initially a bit sluggish; I don't know if that's some sort of Vista prefetch information gathering thing or what, but now everything's pretty snappy. Haven't installed 64-bit flash or Java yet
, but NoScript works like a champ on Waterfox.
Another thing is the colors are different. The smaller-resolution image is my Firefox (32-bit) 3.6.16 screenie of this thread and the larger-res image is my Waterfox screenie.
EDIT: Weird! My monitor actually displays the background of my FF32 screenie in the same darker blue shade as my Waterfox screenie. I guess my laptop's monitor is set up to display brighter colors for some reason. I'll have to twiddle things a bit I guess.
EDIT 2: I looked at this on my laptop, and same deal. What I think are two different shades of blue really are the same shade.
EDIT 3: 64-bit flash works!
