It's not about patience. It is about being brave and taking some brave decisions. If the 'bug' is not fixed in 2-3 versions of Firefox, then basically the Waterfox project is dead. Alex is busy but posting in the forum a small update is not wasting all his time. After all, I am busy, you are busy etc etc. I left my PC compile the Firefox code overnight a few days back, in the morning, I had the final build. I mentioned that I used Microsoft SDKs and I had it. Intel fails. I recommended that Alex should have an alternative. If not him, he can ask a friend and work as a team. With great power comes great responsibility and the Waterfox fanbase is huge.

Obviously there is more to it than ticking the "64bit" box and then clicking "compile", or Waterfox wouldn't be stalled - thus I think "development" is an appropriate term since you are required to patch out bugs that only concern 64bit.

I don't know what changed went into Waterfox since I only used it a short time until v16 was outdated, but other "whose name shall never me uttered" alternatives have a custom installer & updater which does require coding.

You could always use the Latest from Mozilla Central - Firefox 20 x64.

No, it's a nightly build, not a release, but it is an "official" a build of x64 FF as you're likely to find... You can always root around in their public FTP and find little treasures like that biggrin.gif

Funny, I just read how Mozilla has all but killed x64. They demanded that all nightly x64 builds cease, google it. I was thinking maybe they've asked everyone to stop, but who knows, it's all speculation past that and should be treated as such. Mr. Alex here has done phenominal work. Even on Waterfox 16 (as people cry for 17) I'm running my high end PC with Win8Pro and it's the best browser bar none out of the big three (latest chrome, IE10 and FF). It loads pages quickest on here, displays the best (as far as proper format) and the other odd thing, it's the only browser to properly get upmixed to 5.1 via my Xonar Phoebus sound card. So, kudos to Mr. Alex and I hope you continue on with this project soon!

Yes, I am aware, but that was literally built this morning (around 7 AM). There are no Aurora or Beta x64 releases, but their nightly (so-called, as they're no longer every night) still have x64 builds, as you can see...

Hey I've got an idea, let's fill up the support forum with cries for the next version! *facepalm*

Be thankful for what he's done for the community, thank him, and be happy if/when the next one comes out. Unless you are going to donate your time and effort, it's time for you to sit down. :-)

I for one, am blown away with how much he's done already and how well he's done it.

Try the fixes mentioned here (BTW 1033 refers to the language code en-US, not the actual error code): http://csi-windows.com/blog/all/27-csi-news-general/161-fixing-windows-installer-error-2738
