Why so complicated?
Just two or more profiles...

Yeah, setting up two profiles for Firefox and Waterfox is pretty easy with less hassle.

I made two profiles and made shortcuts to them - one for Firefox and one for Waterfox. Thanks for your replies guys

Both have their place. If you want to run 2 versions or builds, or run a second instance or a portable USB stick install (which might be used on machines without firefox or with an existing install), then a profile change using the same executable folder isn't enough. If you just want different settings and profile data and the same executable is fine, then it is.

You can run multiple instances of Firefox/Waterfox where each instance uses a different profile with -no-remote. See here. Also, you can install extensions that's shared between ALL profile.

Are there news on when the new version will be out? Firefox is at 19.0.2 currently. I understand Waterfox is copiled from Firefox sources with optimizations, 64 bits native etc.


Thank you.

As someone who has done some C/C++ coding I'd really like to know more about the specific bugs that hinder the releases. For the first bug found some month ago there was a link to a mozilla and intel bug ticket, but now there is no specific information. Is the intel compiler usable at all as a drop-in replacement for msvc code when as it seems bug after bug occurs out of nowhere even after such a long time of intel compiler releases? Or has intel simply very bad luck that exactly the changes done from one firefox version to the next trigger unknown bugs?

Thank you very much.

I just found Waterfox and I think it is fantastic. However, I am not able to get RoboForm to work with it. It will go to the webpage, but will not enter the username/password automatically. Anybody else see this? Anybody have a fix?
