Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 476

post #4751 of 7341
I guess FF and WF are still buggy when you have a lot of tobs opened, right? Most prominent problem is stuttering Flash videos. When I tried Private Browsing (one tab opened) everything works just so smooth. Something about sessionstore.js bug, I guess?

Something I've just found about the 64 bit Nightly Firefox: 'Mozilla quietly ceases Firefox 64-bit development' http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57553467-93/mozilla-quietly-ceases-firefox-64-bit-development/ dated back in November 2012. Looks like there will be no more versions of it.

I didn't manage to have WF 18 open long enough to get to a page with flash on so I wouldn't know. It crashed on opening the program.

For me the whole Waterfox 18 crashed immediately I opened the program- didn't get as far as pages with flash on it.

then youtake another shot at WF by mentioning your benchmarks and if you look at your past posts everyone of them mentions,freezes,crashes,and cyberfox. This is especially funny when your on the Waterfox website comments about WF18 saying,and I quote:" Marsu24> JackedOffUser • 3 days ago i concur cyberfox is better" not to mention your earlier posts in that thread. http://www.waterfoxproject.org/development.php?fn_mode=fullnews&fn_id=56#disqus_thread if your going to troll you should have at least changed your user name..busted

....

you missed the later announcement after that where (after receiving a whole ton of complaints) they decided to start them back up again. in fact they never stopped except for a couple of weeks when the compilation broke on some new code & they didn't get it fixed for two weeks (again after a large no. of complaints). i've got a cc. of the 11FEB13 nightly x64 installed on my PC (with waterfox the default browser).

to be fair, that could be anyone that decided to use his username there. Though I don't see why anyone would want to do that to someone. But yeah i guess you have a point as well.

Well I'm looking into using nightly 64bit version of firefox, does anyone know why people wouldn't use this as a normal browser? I know its for testing purposes, but from what i've seen so far, nothing is bad with it minus the fact that I can't use the IDM addon with it, which isn't really the end of the world.

Only looking into using nightly because I'm hoping to help Mozilla create a stable 64bit version of firefox that waterfox or any other 3rd party 64bit builder could rely on to help with their own builds.

and use the same wording?say the same things as on here but with the addition of accusing WF of being filled with "hidden items"? I don't think so. Nightly is very experimental and not always stable,doesn't work with many addons and is not considered to be a 'default browser' type of build. It does work well as its 3 versions ahead and often very fast but with the limitations noted. WF is a stable {no matter what the trolls say} easy to use clean variant that I have running on 2 different networks now and is my 'go to' browser. Thank you again Alex for all your hard work you put into it

Yes, my understanding is that Firefox Nightly is not intended for regular use - Mozilla do stress that obviously.

Also, my reading of Mozilla's messages when they agreed to continue the X64 builds was that they're simply continuing to build them as they were doing before. They stressed at the time that their stance on X64 hadn't changed, and they're not actively working on X64 with a view to releasing it, simply providing the 'experimental' build because a number of people asked for it.

I've also been an enthusiastic user of Waterfox under XP x64. Well, until version 18.01 came along and ended the friendship prematurely.

Since I don't see any reason to switch to Windows Vista, 7 or 8 now, I really hope there will be a version of Waterfox for XP x64!

Anything we can do to help?

I'm not saying having Windows XP support is bad, but the OS is over a decade old. It's time for an upgrade because any support you do get is going to be a miracle. The OS is outdated and supporting it requires a lot of extra work.

There will be *official* support until 2014. That's one year left, good enough for me. wink.gif

Yeah, sure.

Yeah, especially for Microsoft, because if we stick to the older Windows versions they can't sell us 8.
