Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 468

post #4671 of 7357
Ok... so I finally got some results by uninstalling Waterfox with the uninstaller (which seems to be doing a lousy job, btw) and then manually deleted all waterfox related folders in program files, appdata etc. I reinstalled Waterfox 18 and STILL have the double-icon issue, but with a new profile javascript seems to be working again, which is really my main concern.

Now I need to figure out how to fix the double-icon issue. Last time this happened was because I installed the new Waterfox over the old one and that caused issues, but this time I've installed everything from scratch and actually get the "no icon" symbol instead of a double Waterfox icon now:



I click on the one on top and the one under it appears and that's the one that appears "selected". No matter how many times I unpin and re-pin.

Well, I followed the instructions and the result was now I see this:


I guess because the problem is only with Waterfox and no other icons are having problems. The main issue is the refusing to stay pinned thing, more than the lack of an icon, which I'm sure is just a symptom.

This worked. The old WF is no longer trying to pin itself when I run WF. smile.gif

EDIT: I've discovered the re-pinning bug seems to happen when I turn on "always check on startup if Waterfox is the default browser".

I fixed it too!!

For anyone having similar issues, the only thing that worked for me was bringing up the jump list (right clicking on the pinned icon) and selecting "waterfox"... this brought up an error dialog that said something like "the target firefox.exe the link refers to no longer exists, remove icon?" I clicked yes and the icon magically turned into the Firefox one and merged with the "old" one.

That was an odd bug, but everything seems in working order now.

My big suggestion would be for:

1. Either recommend NOT to try upgrading from old versions of Waterfox - instead manually uninstall then install the latest one

OR

2. The installer exe should be made more robust and sense previous versions of Waterfox.

I'm experiencing issues getting the 64-bit flash to install and I can't pin down whether it's my slightly borked Waterfox setup or an issue with Adobe's site. Does anyone know where I can access the full 64-bit flash installer and not the web-stub that has to download it separately?

EDIT: There is an obscure link in the Adobe Help page that directs you to the complete installer. Working fine for me now. smile.gif

These are probably the obscure 64bit problems that made Mozilla try to drop the 64bit Firefox builds - with a limited user base and thus limited potential to triangulate the problem it's hardly possible to debug something like this.

Also please don't make it sound like Waterfox is the problem or MrAlex is responsible, he's just compiling it and cannot provide tech support - you are free to switch to a more stable browser at least for the time being. For me, Waterfox is rock stable, it's just that it's not the fastest 64bit build anymore, but I'm looking forward to Waterfox 19 gaining new momentum!

I forget how many versions ago, but at some point WF switched to using a different installer.
At this point it was no longer possible to simply upgrade from one to the other and you had to uninstall first, this used to be mentioned in the original post, but it was quite some time ago and no longer is.

In your case 12 to 18.0.1 was simply too big a jump, the installer change definitely happened at some point after 12.
