Even on 5.3 it doesn't work. I believe its an issue with 64-bit Flash Player.

Been using Waterfox for quite some time now and I have to say that it is absolutely fantastic. I don´t have to deal with nearly as many crashes and the slow startup times that Firefox still suffers from. The icon also looks cooler. biggrin.gif

Thanks a lot.

I read Firefox 5 is supposed to have a 64bit build, is this still the case?
If there is indeed a 64bit coming out what will make Waterfox different?

Most likely. Waterfox is compiled with optimisations, basically to make it 'faster'. Firefox tries to work on as many systems as possible, therefore it barely has any optimisations. I doubt Mozilla will release 64-Bit variant yet, otherwise they would have started to release 64-Bit Beta's as well.

Beta 5 is up and running people.

Wooo it's here wheee.gif trying out

EDIT: MASSIVE improvements
Aside from being the fastest download ever, it was the fastest Waterfox install ever.
Browser startup time has gone from around 3 seconds to 2 seconds (from 4.0.1 to 5.0 b1) to now fully instant (to 5.0 b5). With 67 addons installed. Waterfox now fully takes on Chrome in startup speed.

Now that's more like it biggrin.gif

Just swapped Firefox in all the family computers (that have 64-bit installed) for Waterfox as well. To avoid confusion between family members (what with the blue icon) and have them use Waterfox rather than thinking Firefox isn't there and have them use another browser, I had to rename the desktop icons/etc. to Mozilla Firefox (64-bit).

Seems very nice.
Any plans to compile from Aurora branch (currently 6.0) ? That would be even nicer. smile.gif

Nice, so it looks like this will likely be the most popular alternative build to Firefox, pretty smart naming for it I think.

One request please, could you update the icon and make it more blended? It's pretty jagged looking.
