Wow, I feel like you should be saying, "DUH!" Thanks! That makes a lot of sense. I should have thought of it.

Well I should have tested first. That didn't work. :-(

I'm trying to set up StartPage as my default search engine in Waterfox ( Windows 8 retail) I can get the StartPage search engine icon to show up in the search engine box, (I even told it to start using it right away) but when i search it still uses Google. I actually have two of them.. " Startpage HTTPS" and "Startpage (SSL)" and neither of them work. Thank you for your reply in advance.

@dutch1791, what error do you see? I have been using the same setup for more than a year now. It works flawlessly for me.

I don't get an error message, it just uses all the addons from my other instance, as well as cache, history, etc. I need two distinct instances that don't share anything, and that's not what I'm getting.

I'm really looking forward to it, though fyi the other 64bit Firefox compile that shall not be named there is now available as v18 in a portable and installer version, it might help shorten the time until thje real Waterfox 18 is available.

You mean ONE of the other 64bit compiles. The HTGuard one was available for download on Tuesday.

Didn't even know that, thanks for the information - though HTGuard seems to be compiled with MS but Cyberfox with the Intel compiler just like Waterfox? The Intel-compiled Waterfox is clearly faster than the official Mozilla release, I'd expect Cyberfox to perform about the same, don't know about HTGuard. But all of this of course is just a temporary diversion until the one and only Waterfox is out!
