A new version of Adobe flash was made available on the 12th. v11.5.502.135. Maybe the patch was applied and caused a crash... Maybe dnyanesh can try an older version.

I only hope Mr.Alex don't work himself to death.
School is important for sure but sometimes one need a break.smile.gif

I sure hope he's ok.

I think it's really sad that he don't have the time to build WF17 but now I have started hoping for a nice fresh WF18 instead.smile.gif

Have fun and be nice and good things will come to you all.smile.gif

What web browser does your computer keep defaulting back to if not WF?

Is this a personal (home) computer or is it on a corporate type network where it may have a group policy in place?

Another thing you can try, assuming you have local Administrator rights, is to create another account on the computer then log in with the new account and see if the problem follows. If it does then that suggests to me that a local or group policy is in place. If the problem does not follow then we have to look at something with your local profile.

I am running Windows 8 and yes, I installed some updates but I think the prob was existent even before the updates.

I have no idea if the flash was auto-updated. I don't want to use the old version of Flash as there might be some security vulnerabilities that might have been fixed in the latest release. I'll continue using Firefox until there is a new release of WF.

So I just recently downloaded Waterfox and I really like it but I have noticed that the browser flickers on my pc. I will just be browsing and out of nowhere it will just flicker. Anybody know a fix for it?

I'm missing something about getting the "update" item to work in Waterfox? Recent posts say to either add items in about:config, or a separate "Waterfox updater". Meantime I click "about" and can't see a "Check for updates" option. Should it be there?

Any hints what I've missed and how auto-update works and is configured now, would be really good smile.gif

Please do not harass MrAlex for updates. Be patient. A new version will be released when it's done.

http://www.securityweek.com/mozilla-patches-firefox-again-releases-version-1602 that,s just one artical was just wanting to know did alex patch tho's issues in waterfox to stop (Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) or code execution.) i hope so.

It's tempting...

Yes of course you're at risk. Alex compiles firefox code - if something's not fixed in the version he compiles, then the risk's still there. However..... how significant is the risk, depends a lot on you, for example sites you go to, security awareness, malware/antivirus software etc. It's like 'flu, if it's going round town a lot of people will get it - but far from everyone in all but the most vicious cases. Cross scripting means, someone who puts "bad" code on a web page can make the browser do things it shouldn't, including malicious activity on your system. Will antivirus catch it? Is anything out there doing this? Are you personally vulnerable? Are the websites you visit the kind that might be vulnerable (FYI a major vector these days is via poorly protected bona fide websites). I have no idea.

But yes, one of the side effects is you get patches later than Mozilla sends them out for "vanilla" x32 Firefox. Apparently alex's issues here are about the compiler, more than anything. I'm sure he will fix as soon as he can. Meanwhile - it's a tough call if you are worried. Take a system and data backup maybe? Use Firefox 32 for a while? Not much else to say. What do others think smile.gif
