Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 494

post #4931 of 7359
Even with all plugins and extensions disabled? If it's happening with both browsers, seems like an issue with plugins might be possible. Flash or Java seems most likely. Plugins can be disabled too, I'm not sure if they are disabled during safe mode.

Does CPU usage spike? Scanned for virus/malware?

Haven't tried disabling Plugins and Extensions yet but the thing is if they are indeed the problem, Flash videos would still stutter if only one tab is open, right? When I try Private Browsing, there is absolutely no stutter at all.

No, the CPU usage doesn't spike.

Hello Waterfox team

sorry my English is very bad.

Will there be a version of Waterfox 19, based on Firefox 19?


greeting

Please don't pressure MrAlex (the dev) for updates, it will be released when it's done.

Explanation: There seems to be a nasty new compiler bug, and when this happens it might take a while - Firefox 20 will be released on April 1st so the it's not impossible the dev might even consider it feasible to skip wf19 and go straight to Waterfox 20 like it happened when version 17 was skipped. That's because Waterfox uses another compiler chain as other more "vanilla" not to be named here other 64 bit Firefox versions that are updated more often, but wf in theory still should have the edge due to superior technology.

I'm also not a native speaker, and it's great you're participating in the forum and wf thread and you'll (mostly) find it a helpful, friendly and polite place - but there has been a certain lack of communication concerning the state of affairs lately, so next to checking here regularly twitter is another regular source of newsflashes: Recently (over a week ago) MrAlex announced wf19 is on it's way, though the compiler bug "is being resolved", unfortunately meaning it hasn't been resolved yet: https://twitter.com/Waterfoxproject

If you haven't tried this yet try and see if it helps your stuttering problems,I'm not getting them but ff users have reported this has worked for them;
Try this for stuttering flash video:

Right-Click on the volume icon in the sys tray.
Click on Playback devices
Select the device which you are currently using (default)
Click the properties button
Go to the Enhancements tab
Check "Disable all Enhancements"
Ok and Apply.

This trick worked for many.
Reboot and try your browser again.

Interesting approach (I guess the idea is to lower the cpu load) and thanks for trying to help - though to avoid confusion the checkbox is labeled "Disable all sound effects" at least on (my) Win7.

Sorry if my reply was easy to misunderstand - I meant to say that sl is "dead" from a programer's perspective, it might be different as a user and I doubt the sl site base will expand further.

I have been working as a programer with MS Visual Studio (C++ though) for some time and have been to some Microsoft conferences where they positioned sl to be the competitor to flash. But since wpf and in direct succession sl is too heavyweight for mobile systems Microsoft pulled the plug on sl, though of course try continue to support it until the current version's eol and try to market this change w/o causing too much frustration for the devs that have invested in sl knowledge :-o

I have never had enhancements enabled in the first place, and to be perfectly clear the problem is not with flash video--it is the entire browser freezing momentarily, sometimes long enough to eat an entire sentence if it happens while I'm typing and I don't notice it. Similarly, disabling all plugins (Flash is currently the only plugin I have installed anyway) does nothing to change the issue. Thank you for your suggestion but unfortunately it does not help in this instance.

I remember you writing your problem didn't occur with wf16, have you tried to narrow down the problem to wf18 by trying 64-bit Firefox Nightly with the same profile?

I went through a brief period like that as well but I can't remember if that was with the problematic Windows Update or not. I did remember re-installing Flash (both 32 and 64 bit - actually I just forgot and installed 32 bit first). I was on YouTube and it felt like I had buffering issues and playback issues (seeking after video has buffered). I tried (more or less in this order): clearing browser's cache including cookies, Flash's cache, and increasing browser's cache size (which I then reverted back to default). The problem more or less resolved itself somewhere along those lines. There were instructions about problematic Flash installation that could be solved if you did a clean install I think if you hadn't already attempted it.
