Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 368

post #3671 of 7359
There is no "Check for Updates" in the About Waterfox window of my WF14.0.1 ... no automatic update. What's up with that?

Tried launching the .exe from the directory. Same issue.

I too have had the problem where one of my gadgets (MSN Weather) looks completely messed up after install/uninstall of Waterfox.
It's possible that something else caused it, but now that it happened, I can't figure out how to fix it.
Does anyone know how to fix it?

That's never worked for Waterfox so you have to run the separate updater.exe file that's in the same directory as waterfox.exe or manually update.

I just had to do system restore that was created before my Waterfox installation. All other attempts failed.

Hi.

I've just tried Waterfox. I think this is a great idea , especially for 64-bit OSes where people want to take advantage of their RAM be it 4GB, 8GB, 16GB...

BUT I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH WATERFOX AND THAT IS:

I CURRENTLY HAVE FIREFOX INSTALLED ON MY COMPUTER.
I'VE INSTALLED WATERFOX WHILE FIREFOX WAS NOT RUNNING.
AFTER OPENING WATERFOX - ALL MY TABS FROM FIREFOX WERE IN WATERFOX - I wanted a new browser , not Firefox with its tabs that I had already opened in the past.

I have various browsers installed such as:
Maxthon
Firefox
Opera
Chrome
Rocketmelt
Waterfox - this one cannot forget about the tabs opened in Firefox!

I mean, Rocketmelt is nothing but Chrome with a Facebook extension but still...you can open other tabs and forget about the ones opened in Chrome, leaving that for Chrome only!

Is there any fix for this? Because it wouldn't make much sense to use Waterfox if it uses all the tabs from Firefox - even if it's 64-bit optimized - Firefox can already take much more than 4GB of RAM with its processes(overall) so I don't really see the need for a 64-bit edition without the capability of having its own tabs.

You can setup Waterfox to use its own separate profile away from Firefox's, but it requires you to do some shortcut trickery - that's the only way to do it right now.

If interested, read this: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/internet/firefox/use-multiple-firefox-profiles-at-the-same-time/

Anyone have an answer to my bug yet?

I keep on getting an invalid page during a new tab or when I start waterfox (the homepage).

I think others have reported that, not sure.

I've reported this for a bit but no one else is reporting it or have an answer to it. I'm not sure why, but this happens to all the installation I do. It's just the new tab page and homepage. It doesn't really bother me too much but it's annoying how I have to reclick the URL thing to start typing rather than "CTRL+T" and then start typing.
