Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 471

post #4701 of 7359
Hello all. Apologies if these questions have already been asked (I did search the thread; your FAQ link is broken).

A few questions I have:

1) Is there any way to change Waterfox's color scheme? The navy blue color of the main "Waterfox" button clashes badly with my Windows 7 theme, and I'm used to the Firefox orange.

2) Similarly, is there any way to change Waterfox's program icon? It's extremely similar to Thunderbird's and confuses me often. Plus, the bright orange of Firefox is something which people are used to "scanning for" with their eyes. I appreciate Waterfox is its own development and must have an identity, but color is something people are very much used to.

Also, some feedback:

Waterfox works flawlessly with Firefox Preloader (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffpreloader/) although I had to rename waterfox.exe to firefox.exe.

Aside from the color/icon issues, what a fantastic development. Thanks so much.

Are you using IDM though? I noticed that when IDM is enabled in Cyberfox, it still lags especially in Flash videos. Turning it off seems to solve the problem for Cyberfox/FF/WF.

1. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/app-button-color/

2. http://www.angusj.com/resourcehacker/
1. Drag and drop the .exe into Resource Hacker
2. Action >> Replace Icon...
3. File >> Save...
4. Make sure the new .exe is working, and then delete the original.

Yes, I use IDM. Ever since I have switched to Cyberfox, the stuttering in the flash videos has dropped significantly. It hardly drops any frames.

Awesome, thank you so much.

I discovered that instead of installing another addon to change the main Firefox button's color, you can actually just edit the [profile]/chrome/userChrome.css file and add this code to turn it back to the default (orange) color: http://paste2.org/p/2813981

Also I did the Resource Hacker to change Waterfox's icon back to the default Firefox one and it worked!

So what could be causing my problems then?

Can't think of anything. For me, everything was fine until the WF18 update was installed. Some users have reported it to be crashing but It didn't crash on me, it just lagged and didn't play flash videos very well.

Just throwing this idea out there, but did you guys try using clean/new profiles? Reason why I say that is I always start a new browser profile (I do this for all my web browsers) with each new major version and I never run into issues like this.

I don't use a new profile, and rarely ever have a problem.

In-fact I can't remember having a single problem besides the old icon duplicating itself on the taskbar problem.

Does Waterfox no longer support XP x64 (server 2003 x64)? I got an error message saying "waterfox.exe is not a valid win32 application". I've been running Waterfox 16 without issue so I was surprised to see that it wouldn't run. I tried cyberfox as well and got the same error message saying "not a valid win32 application". I've gone back to Watefox 16 since the new build won't run.
