Registered at the new Q&A site with no issues.

Will try the build tomorrow if I get home on time.

Once I found Bandizip and was able to extract the Waterfox 30 archive, the test has been running smoothly.

As I have been for the test builds, I copy the new version of Waterfox to a new folder create a desktop shortcut to the new version.

I did install the Firefox 30 update first, and let Firefox sort out the compatibility of my add-ons.

While I have not done a lot of browsing as yet, so far Waterfox 30 is working just fine.

Works fine here as well, haven't ran into any issues. Latest version of winrar supports rar5 archive, as well.

@MrAlex New Q&A site looks good on normal monitor, but is difficult to use on a mobile device or phone. Need a mobile friendly version of the site like the current forum.

I have used the Waterfox 30 test build all weekend and have not had any issues with Waterfox.

I do have some add-ons that are not working properly. But, they all appear to be issues with the add-on not being fully compliant for Australis and the transition to revision 30 based code.

Good work Alex!

waterfox 28.0 often (some 1-2 a week? the machine typically runs long term and so the browser does) pops up with a window telling me about updates or better a problem with locating the update. visiting the project page manually works quite nice and shows there is no update. whats wrong with that?

my machine has some 6 GB of RAM (discount some reserved areas and a maybe bit for the video).

recently i ran a virtual machine with some 2 GB of assigned VM memory.
clearly it loaded the system a lot making the interaction with the main OS (Win7 64bit) pretty clumsy due to permanent swapping.
rather short after closing the VM it turned out that waterfox did dramatically grow up with its memory consumption.
this lasted a quite noticeable while (the machine went pretty unusable at that time) until all calmed down again after some >5 minutes.
waterfox memory consumption during the phase was up to 4 GB whilst afterwards it only showed 1,2 GB. (i have open a bunch of tabs)

maybe its not a waterfox specific problem as it might happen in firefox as well - just waterfox can use up much more memory in such a case - thus its behaving "worse".
i have no idea what has happened - might have been some delayed operations, some plugin or some sort of garbage or cache cleanup.
the major problem is that it is using so much space making interaction with the machine & the browser drop down to a barely useable state.
if i had less memory in the machine then swapping would probably increase much and the duration of the incident would probably increase to >30 min(?).

Does someone know what that can be or how i am able to determine the root cause operation of that behaviour? (I think i had that happen a few times in the past so i probably will have it happen a few more times in future.)

memory behaviour as taken with Sysinternals process explorer at two different times of progress.



PS: after restarting the browser the memory footprint dropped down to even only 950 MB.
