There's no need to make it portable you can use the portableapps.com version and replace some files. I've done it on more than one occasion.

To make waterfox portable all you have to do is:
1. Manually extract the files from the waterfox setup exe.
2. Rename the folder labelled "core" to "Firefox"
3. Run the portable apps installer for portable firefox
4. In the firefox portable folder , Goto the "App" Folder
5. Delete the "Firefox" folder and replace with the one you extracted from the waterfox setup.

Viola you've got portable waterfox

Seriously Mr. Alex? Didn't get the icon into the 5.0b1 build? *sigh*

Here's the link again for good measure http://sx.sytes.net/waterfox.ico

Please and thank you...

There's no update yet. And 4.0 (not 4.0.1) doesn't have auto-updates enabled.

I think it's the sound of my onboard video or something? Why would this browser make my machine do a weird sound?

Yes, there is also an official way of making a portable version. That's the way I was thinking of.

I enjoyed WaterFox while my windows was working. dead mobo, raid toast... I said screw reinstalling and went with Ubuntu. I would love to see Linux support. I only which I could be of any help in the possible development of it. Would love to be a tester though.

You have Firefox 5 b1 as Waterfox!? I'm gonna try it out, from benchmarks I've seen there were huge performance gains smile.gif (I'm the type for beta software too anyway tongue.gif)
post #276 of 7325
Uhh, Firefox 5 beta 1 isn't officially released yet. The version found in the releases folder on the Mozilla FTP is a candidate build made from an older Aurora snapshot to help test out the beta channel - the actual beta won't be until later this month.

I'm seeing noticeable improvements in the rendering engine speed.... I'm no longer seeing flickering in my tab previews when I open them! Web pages seem to load significantly faster - from 1 or half a second to instantly! A lot of other areas have been improved speed-wise too!
Not actual beta, but still an improvement nontheless and I am satisfied with it

I also really like the new "About waterfox" window. First to notice gets a cookie? wink.gif

I get a whine noise when I scroll up or down or very fast but this is with any type of 4.0+ Firefox build, whether x64 or 32bit. I'm on an SSD, so it is not my hdd, GPU & CPU are OC'd so for me its most likely a capacitor vibrating or something, I tried zoom listening with a paper towel tube but cannot find where it is coming from.
