Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 422

post #4211 of 7341
Can't say that I like Chrome better(WF/FF have a better bookmark system) but I have 23 open tabs and the most memory usage that AVG shows a warning for is ~250MB. The last time I used Waterfox it showed 2GB of system usage. frankly I think that Mozilla needs to get this figured out. I haven't changed my Browsing history. Still the same windows open that I had going with Waterfox/Firefox. So yes indeed there was a BAD memory leak inherent within those two browsers. I want to go back because it's a faster browser... well except when there is a huge leak in system RAM when I'm running it. Hope the leak gets fixed soon. Maybe someone can tear into Chrome to see what they did and can mimic the build to some degree. mellowsmiley.gif

What a difference... In my case using Chrome with aronud 20 pages uses much more memory (around 1,5 GB) that Waterfox (around 650 MB) with same pages opened... How to understand those differences between your system and mine...?

Okay..
Since the link to "Frequently Asked Questions" in the first post is invalid, I will ask it here..
Ever since starting from version 13.1 PL, whenever I tried to update Waterfox, after installation and upon trying to launch the browser,
I get a nag-box stating:

waterfox.exe - Entry Point Not Found

The procedure entry point malloc could not be located in the
dynamic link library mozglue.dll.


I tried a dozen times,downloading the installation package and re-installing,it's always the same..
Is there somekinda workaround for this,or do I need to stick with v13.0 ?


^^^
any help on this please? running windows 7 home premium 64-bit,i7 quad core machine..

Obviously remembering NOT to remove your data files too when uninstalling. Oh, I believe there was also a suggestion to run a registry cleaner after uninstalling and before reinstalling, although it wasn't necessary in my case.


Thanks Farmers.
Everything works now fine!
Uninstalled waterfox 13.0 with "Your uninstaller!" and removed all traces from it off the computer.
Now I'm running the latest Waterfox and everything works smoothly.
Sweet..
Thanks again for your reply.


THE AUTHOR OF WATERFOX SHOULD MAKE THE UNINSTALL HAPPEN PRIOR INSTALLING NEWER WATERFOX, ON HIS/HER INSTALLER.. :-/

Yeah sorry but I have to say that my WF/FF windows used a ton more Memory than Chrome does. Same windows open it uses 3/4 less RAM than my WF did. mellowsmiley.gif

BUMP!

Hello Firefox 17. Goodbye Flash Player.

We never got the security improvements of 16.0.2. How long will it take to get 17? I'm beginning to lose interest...

too be fair, it was around alex's exam time, so he was busy. (not like he gets paid to make waterfox) and really there was only 1 "security" fix in 16.0.2, which if you had noscript plugin you wouldn't run into this issue ever.
https://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2012/mfsa2012-90.html (known fix in 16.0.2) and thats the only one they list on their site which you can find here. https://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html

I'm sure waterfox 17 will be out within a couple of days unless alex is still busy. Keep up the good work smile.gif
