Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 166

post #1651 of 7359
Confirmed, crashes on Peacekeeper when the 3D test runs. So that's two issues thus far.

No problem! Sometimes it takes time to build a better stronger Waterfox. I hope everyone else understands that and has a little patience. 'Good things come to those who wait!'.

The error with libiomp5md.dll is caused by the -parallel switch as you probably musty have found by now. I'm not sure Firefox even needs OMP but if that's the case just staticaly link libiomp5md.dll or distribute it with the installer. I'd do the former.

MSVC 2010 FTW if you want stable code and no problems, ICL 12 if you feel like going on an adventure tongue.gif

I know, but so close, so close! It looks like the instability happened with 3D rendering. I'll see what I can do *sigh*. Also thanks for the help :) I might end up going with MSVC.

Keep testing Nightly builds and sometimes i find one which is really fast... and if you updated it the next one is really messed-up in terms of speed... sometimes works better other times worst..

Here's an example: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/2012-01-01-03-10-15-mozilla-central/firefox-12.0a1.en-US.win64-x86_64.installer.exe (1 January 2012)

- the ones coming after that end-up being slower and more unstable... can you find something specific about it that makes it so fast?! confusedsmiley.png

...with few about:config tweaks all page open almost instantly (definitely not intended for slow machines)...

(maybe you could improve Waterfox - with certain changes based on that).

Just curious; are there any known issues running on an AMD platform? I ask because I am running Waterfox on two computers; one at work, and one at home. The work machine has an Intel i7-2600 and the home machine has an AMD Phenom II 955. Waterfox runs without issue on my work computer, but on the home computer I have problems. Initially I made a backup copy of my Firefox profile and used Waterfox as my browser. After some period of time (day or two) of the browser running, it would start to have a hard time loading some pages; there didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the pages it wouldn't load. if I launched another browser (Chrome or IE) and tried to bring up a page that Waterfox was having a problem with, the other browser would successfully bring up the page. If I relaunched Waterfox, the problem would go away for a while, and then reappear.

Eventually I decided to start fresh and use a new profile for Waterfox. Seemed to perform well...for a while. Eventually I started seeing the same behavior, and would occasionally get encoding errors (a firefox message). Again, relaunching temporarily "fixed" the problem. Most recently Waterfox basically stopped working; it would open some pages when launched, but most would give the busy-spin and never load. I went back to Firefox (9.0.1) and had no issues; and this was using the same profile that waterfox had failed on.

I tend to leave tabs open that hold my interest, and the number of them builds up over time; I don't know whether this has anything to do with it, as at work I have maybe 100+ tabs open, and at home I had less than half that amount.

I use only two extensions: AdBlock Plus and Session Manager. I use the same on both computers.

No overclock on either home or work computers.

Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

marknu1 - If you're using Waterfox 9.0, wait for Waterfox 10 then check to see if you have the same issues. If you downloaded the test Waterfox 10, wait for the re-release of Waterfox 10 in the next few days then check to see if you have the same issues. Currently Waterfox 10 is undergoing testing to remove bugs and adding performance enhancements for Intel and AMD systems.

There shouldn't be any differences as to what platform it is, Microsoft's compiler doesn't discriminate against platforms. The worst that MSVC can do is used libraries that perform better on AMD or Intel systems, but that has to be applied implicitly which it isn't on Waterfox. Hmm curious that that happens. I'll look into it and see if I can find anything.

Check the stability of both your CPU and GPU (as WF/FF is GPU accelerated).
