Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 190

I just run Firefox.exe from the core folder, and voila, right now I'm typing from my Waterfox 10.0.2.

Any advice? Should I keep on using this browser or get back to Firefox 32 bits?
If using Waterfox, should I make some other changes?

Thanks in advance

Visual Studio is at fault here. If you want you could run Waterfox like a portable program, and create a shortcut to your desktop. Otherwise there's nothing else you can do redface.gif

Well i downloaded Firefox Beta and there doesn't seem to be any kind of a conflict between it and Waterfox (i mainly use Waterfox)...thanks for helping lol...

Hi all, I did a search on this thread and didn't see this raised as a question before. Has anyone looked into doing a Portable Apps release of Waterfox?

The link from the Waterfox download page (http://waterfoxproject.org/downloads/) is not working. I was able to find the current version (10.0.2) searching for it on sourceforge, but the download page link should be fixed. The other links (flash, java, silverlight) seem to work fine.

Huh, strange - I just tested and it was OK for me. MrAlex has said Sourceforge has given him problems before, though.

I had problems with auto update from 10.0.1 so I manually installed 10.02.
Now whenever I start Waterfox it thinks it still needs to complete the update and it runs the add ons check.
Is there a switch I can flip to change this?

Hi again,

my bsod are now gone with WaterFox 10.0.2, but I still have random crash ( "program has stop working" windows error box) while keeping it open for a long time. (few hours)

I often keep WaterFox open with 5-10 tabs then go do something else, and find it crashed when I come back.
