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.

Funny, a couple days after this when I busted Marshu24 someone opened a new account on the Waterfox website comment section (through discus)and posted using my user name on this site, to bad I already have an account on their that traces back to the email this account is from but using a different screen name on there so no one is going believe your attempts to discredit WF or me by trolling.
If you guys put your efforts into making your competing browsers better instead of trolling it would be a better use of your resources..and time.

note;wasn't addressing tek2005 in this post but others smile.gif

not sure if you are accusing me or not. Was just posting the fact that it could be anyone doing it. As I don't even bother to post on that site other then to defend waterfox with sarcastic comments (hell my name on there was like 3rd world problems on the 16 version post when people were qqing about no 17 release), and all my posts on here have never been bad other then when i had issues with something (i think which was the problem with the update from 14 to 15 when you had to reinstall waterfox)

It seems to be pretty common with the current build unfortunately, I ended up reverting back to WF 16.0.1 (which I had 0 issues with), as WF 18.0.1 was actually locking up on a regular basis (on top of the CPU spikes) which made it unusable for me.

I'm hoping that when Mozilla release FF 19 and MrAlex releases WF 19, the issue will be resolved - as it'd be nice to upgrade and I'd rather not switch to another browser.

As always MrAlex, thanks for the work you put into Waterfox, it's much appreciated!

I agree. I'm going to have to revert back, as well, as this is unfortunately unusable.

How did you revert back -- uninstall 18 and then install 16 (without removing profile data)? Or did you create a new profile?

When doing an upgrade/downgrade, I'm always unsure on whether I should uninstall Waterfox with Revo Uninstaller. I fear that it will wipe out too much, including my profile information, even if I don't tell it to go crazy on deleting and wiping out remnants.

Anyway, any loose estimate on when these spikes might be remedied?

Well, I also get lag problems with pretty much any Mozilla browser when using lots of tabs and switching between tab groups. I've done everything that was suggested here but the problem still persists. It is more common when you switch between different tab groups. Googling about this issue showed that Mozilla has problems with the sessionrestore.js file in the profile folder. I don't know why is this happening and I've been experiencing it for years now.

Personally, I didn't actually uninstall WF 18, the reason being WF 18 fixed the missing Open new tab, Open new Window, Enter private browsing etc. options for WF jumplists - something that had been missing from previous versions.

What I did was simply backup the WF Program Files folder, then delete everything in it. Then I downloaded WF 16.0.1 Portable (rather than installer) and copied the files to the Waterfox directory. After doing that I copied across the missing DLLs from the backup folder which were mentioned when trying to run it.

I didn't create a new profile, I simply used my current one - mainly because I assume if WF18 added anything new to it, WF16 isn't going to be able to understand the new options and will simply ignore them anyway. While I'm not 100% sure this is the case, I have not experienced any instability or issues after downgrading this way.

Greetings. o uo)/ Apologies in advance, I'm a total nub.
I'm not sure if this has been addressed, but I don't think so?

I wanted to ask if there was a way to hook Orbit Downloader up with Waterfox? With Firefox, when you download something, it gives you the option to DL with Orbit, but it doesn't with Waterfox. Is this something Orbit has to change themselves, or is there something I can do?
I would input the download links into Orbit directly, but I download a looooot of manga, and even then, direct links often aren't available, and I don't have stable internet at home. I'd like for my downloads to continue after interruption.

ok, me too, and all builds of FF 18.0.1 have this problem! Who have testing with FF 18.0.2 build and have this problem?

i would suggest using internet download manager if you can, i believe orbit download manager would need to beable to be compatible with waterfox (or any 64bit browser) for it to work with it. As I can't provide help for this matter, for internet download manager theres options that basically just chooses the plugin container/exe of waterfox and it works. Maybe try looking there on orbit. :X sorry couldnt be much help.
