Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 447

look here https://startpage.com/eng/aboutstartpage

"On Startpage the privacy of Ixquick is combined with the Web search results from Google. The combination of these two features is what makes Startpage so special. You can continue using the Web results from the world's most popular search engine but now under the privacy protection of Ixquick, the world's most private search engine."

This is what i was trying to do. make Startpage the default search .

"Q: Can I also use Startpage through the Firefox or SeaMonkey or Flock Internet Keywords search?
Using the Firefox or SeaMonkey or Flock browser it is possible to perform a web search just by entering your search term into the Location Bar and hitting "enter".
By default these browsers use Google, but you can easily change it to Startpage. Here's how:

*NOTE: Please make sure to follow the below directions exactly, as changing the "about:config" preferences can influence the behavior of your browser negatively.

Type 'about:config' in the browser location bar and hit 'enter'.
Accept the warning message to be careful.
Enter 'keyword.URL' in the filter on top of the page.
Double-click on the 'keyword.URL'- line that shows up.
In the pop-up window replace the Google string with: https://startpage.com/do/search?language=english&cat=web&query=
Click on 'OK'.
Close the window or tab.

Now, you are ready to search. If you type your search term into the Location bar, Firefox or SeaMonkey or Flock will submit a search query to Startpage since your search term is not a valid URL.
Every entry without a clear match to a URL will display the Startpage search results page for the entry and any settings you had saved before will be respected.

If you rather use the settings you generated in a URL you will need to amend https://startpage.com/do/search?language=english&cat=web&query= as follows:
Replace 'language=english' with 'prf=[complete prf-value]' or with 'prfh=[complete prfh-value]' from the generated url, and make sure there is no space before continuing with &cat=web&query= .
"

I really don't understand. I have the latest Firefox and the latest Adobe Flash Player but every single time I play a Flash video in this browser, everything just slows down until I close that tab that contains the Flash video. This was happening to me even with the previous versions of WF. I have no problems playing the same video with IE9 32bit.

Is there any way to stop Waterfox from doing this?
I had that for a while, but it was some obscure setting with a specific keyboard/mouse combination, with Shift or Ctrl accidentally pressed, resulting in the move of the tab to a new window.
Do you have TabMix Plus installed, by chance? That's where I eventually found the issue.

I appreciate your thoughts on this. I don't have TabMix Plus installed. I don't have any other 'tab' add-ons installed, either. As for Ctrl or Shift being pressed, I am not pressing either when this happens, but even when I do nothing happens out of the ordinary. What is odd, though, is that my browser is set to not switch automatically to a new tab when opened, but sometimes it does. Perhaps I need to uninstall and reinstall from scratch? I like this browser, but the tab to window thing is pretty annoying.

Thanks!

Glad it worked out.

Moved forward to firefox. Although I highly appreciate Mr. Alex's work, being two versions back is too much, with publicly announced vulnerabilities. I will probably come back to waterfox when it will become available, but felt that the risk of waiting with an ancient version and relying on a vague 3 week old post that says "v18 will be delivered", makes me feel very uncomfortable. I do agree with others, that same as we respect Dr. Alex, he should also respect us, and announce his progress, even if there is none. Sorry for my bitterness, but I feel I had waited for too long in the dark. I fear that the compiler issue is not resolved. I see no reason why mozilla will downgrade a part of its code, just to accommodate a buggy (?) compiler, so I'd bet my money on the problem still being around us.

I have no problems with flash myself, but since you do you may need to use another browser if you can't fix it using the method I've linked to in this post. Good luck. I hope you can fix this issue.

Thanks, I'll try that. But what I don't understand is why other people don't experience the same Flash problems that I'm having?
