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.
