Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 429

post #4281 of 7348
it's a laptop..... it makes burn-in testing literal.....
that said, I highly doubt it's hardware... I just fixed a bluescreen issue just a month or 2 ago, in doing so, i did run it through the standard battery of hardware tests....
and I used to have 60 tabs open all the time... didn't notice any slowdown....
flash and WF have been stable since i did an install repair....

32bit only. Firefox is no longer supporting 64bit Browser. But they have Waterfox (thanks to MrAlex) for that. Just be patient he's trying to get it done. Nobody pays him for this service you know. thumb.gif

yeah, it kinda seems like mozzila is going backwards.... but then again, there are quite a few plugins that don't support 64bit browsers, unfortunately....

Not to sound rude, but if your happy with Cyberfox then stick with that and leave Mr. Alex alone. smile.gif

I personally will keep on rooting for Waterfox just like I have with Firefox vs Chrome. Even though the other may be arguably better than the other.

P.S. This got me away from Chrome and back to Firefox.

FTR, Mozilla has never supported 64-bit browsers on Windows; all 64-bit Windows builds released by the team have been nightlies, and all stable 64-bit Windows builds have been third-party (like Pale Moon, Waterfox, and this odd upstart Cyberfox).

Also, Mozilla has not ruled out eventually releasing 64-bit builds of Firefox for Windows, but because the Nightlies have been so broken lately and stable 64-bit builds really aren't on the map right now, the developers decided to save themselves the headache of all those x64-specific crash reports until they have a date certain to start releasing stable 64-bit builds.



BTW, for those who are using Cyberfox (and those sticking with Waterfox, for when Mr. Alex upgrades VS), the latest download links for the Visual Studio 2012 redistributables (Update 1, but once installed, Windows Update will keep them up-to-date) are found here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679
(The "prerequisites" checker may balk at not finding the exact version of the redistributables; just skip that installation step.)

As for the latest Intel redistributables, they are here (Composer XE 2013, currently at Update 1 but the link will have the latest updates as they are released): http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/redistributable-libraries-for-intel-c-and-visual-fortran-composer-xe-2013-for-windows

I for one hope that Mr. Alex can figure out what's causing the problem with compilation; maybe an examination of the Cyberfox source can uncover a solution.

That's not correct, I've been using 64-bit Nightly for a long time up to now - there were always some days with broken Nightly in between, but the that's about it and it certainly didn't get worse lately. The reason for abandoning 64bit is simply that Mozilla wants/has to focus their resources, same reason why Thunderbird development got dumped.

Perhaps the compilation will go better based on 17.0.1 source?
I am certain that Mr.Alex i doing his best to make it happen for us all..smile.gif

Maybe, maybe not - but after Mozilla abandoned their 64bit future a lot of people will look for a reliably updated 64bit browser version, and I hope the people currently working on their own (and most probably duplicating work) will not fight each other but hopefully join and work together on one distribution?
