Just to make sure, did you try uninstalling both 32 and 64 bit flash and also waterfox?
Asking since I have absolutely no crashes at all since flash 11.5 was installed.smile.gif

I'm using cyberfox at the moment but when Alex gets the new waterfox compiled I'll be back to waterfox. I just like the feel of it plus I rather be faithful to a developer who doesn't hid his thoughts from us and gives great support. With all the bickering I feel we should be patient. Alex is a student and needs time for that. I know when he gets back to waterfox it will be better than ever. I use firefox, waterfox, cyberfox, plus the nightly versions. So I don't play favorites or give insults to others who do. Any version of firefox is worth using. Keep the faith!!!!!

Options, Tabs, Show Tab Previews in Windows Task bar - of course, this assumes you have Aero enabled

Turns out it's a problem with the core and not ICC, since VC9 gets this error too.

As for browser, like I tell everyone it's personal preference!

Looks like the regression that initially caused the compiler error may have been fixed now?

Thanks for all your hard work on Waterfox MrAlex!

If you actually have a look at the bug ticket, you'd notice it hasn't changed since 2012-12-02 06:13:09 PST and the status still is...

Keywords: regression
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true

Knowing how long obscure compiler bugs take to be fixed if it isn't a mainstream problem, I doubt if there'll be a Waterfox 17, at least not if MrAlex doesn't copy the source workaround or compiler method of the other unnamed 64bit browser that obviously does compile...

Well, I am a web developer and I love getting those updates. Waterfox is my main web browser in both work and home. Not getting WF17 is a let down for me but so far, I am loyal to WF and haven't installed anything else. I would really like to ask MrAlex if it is possible to have an alternative building environment that WF actually compiles. Maybe something like DirectX SDK 9.29.xxxx, MS Visual C++ 2010, MS Windows SDK v7 etc. I managed to compile the Firefox code without any error using MS SDKs. Considering that in the past, MrAlex had a similar problem with compilation, I think that having an alternative building environment for such cases is essential. The project has gained enormous fanbase and I read comments in various forums from disappointed users about this delay. I think, and since we are talking about free software, for WF to keep its current fanbase, there should some alternatives in building the project and releasing it without delays.

Why not compile your own version if you want a x64 Firefox 17 build so badly?
post #4350 of 7359
Then I'd suggest exercising patience and some understanding. Alex has a very busy life, plain and simple.
