I'm contacting my installer support to see if the silent UI installs the toolbar (which it shouldn't, because it has to be selected by the user) which means you can create a batch file to install Waterfox without worry. I'll get back to you on this thumb.gif

Thanks!

I generally dont use silent installers because alot of the systems I use block batch files (company PC's)

However ill keep an eye out for a "slim" version paid or unpaid!

I made some test of consumption memory with a clean profile, without addons, between WF15 & FF15. The results are in GB with the sum of browser's memory + Flash plugin.
I use this web to run the test. http://gregor-wagner.com/tmp/mem
Some tips: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Zombie_compartments

_______________FF____WF
MemTest_______2,77___4,18
Closed Tabs ____0,30___1,13

Note: Eset Antivirus 5 detect the WF 15 update like a virus.

First: I don't have the memory problems and i have 32 add-ons and Windows 8 with 8GB Ram.

Second: Is it not possible to run Firefox and Waterfox ad the same time? If i want to open Firefox i just get a new Waterfox window.

I'd just like to mention that Unizeto Certum gives out free digital certificates for Open Source Developers (I've had one for a couple years now), and that there are lots of great free installer systems, like InnoSetup. There's no reason to pay for either one.

Eset V4.2 Detected WF15 as a virus too, and it looks like WF15 uses more memory than FF15

oh yeh another thing is, when you use the flash plug-in with firefox15, it uses a separate process in the task manager, but with WF15 that doesn't happen.

(Sorry for my bad english)

Have you tried using the -noremote switch on the shortcut? That *should* allow it, but I'd really suggest using a different profile for Waterfox as well. Try reading this article if you want Firefox and Waterfox to use different profiles (and run at the same time together).

This is normal, 64-bit applications (e.g Waterfox) utilize more memory than 32-bit applications (e.g. Firefox).

Sure i have different profiles. I thought running both would just work cause we have now waterfox.exe in the taskmanager.

i don't have any problems with that but i'm just saying that itdoesn't happen with WF.

Before updating to WF15, I updated the flash plug-in from 11.3 to 11.4.
