Looks like I'll be switching to Pale Moon then. Sorry, MrAlex!

Never heard of a 64-bit browser before. How much faster is Pale Moon or Waterfox compared to Chrome?

CCleaner is great for cleaning up your browsing history from most browsers.

Waterfox has been a smother experience all round, it may be marginally faster than Firefox 32 but frankly most of the talk about speed is irrelevant because most modern browsers are fast already and it becomes a matter of perception. Having said that O "perceive" it to be faster than Firefox. Certainly some of the issues which lead to a slower overall Firefox experience do not seem to trouble Waterfox.

Since Waterfox will use your Firefox profile anyway swapping between the two is seamless and very soon you will settle on Waterfox.

Having an up to date browser is not terribly reliable and certain with Waterfox as the job is done by one person and we are at his mercy. Waterfox is a much more fluent experience for me than PaleMoon, there are the Mozilla 64bit nightlies but that isn't much fun for a working environment.

Speed probably won't make much of a difference in real life most of the time and heavily depends on which benchmark and ff base version is used. One other (rather theoretical for everyday use) advantage of 64bit is the ability to use more than 4gb of ram.

You should try all flavors and then decide which appeal most to you: PaleMoon as a "backported" browser, Cyberfox as well supported and regularly updated to the latest Firefox version. And last not least there's Waterfox which should be the fastest due to using the Intel compiler - but there were minor delays, a little lack of support/communication and some problems with the last version - though I'm still absolutely convinced this will all go away in the future again and thus am still eagerly awaiting the next version of this awesome project!

Shouldn't that bit read 'the last 2 versions' of Firefox now ? Waterfox is still on version 18.0.1, whilst Firefox is now on version 20.0.1 and fast approaching the end of the version 21 beta cycle.

Be cautious when posting something like that - the last time someone dared people demanded an immediate ban if wf didn't come out on top! However, if you flip back a few pages you'll see that it heavily depends on the benchmark used, and as far as I remember the current wf 18 has some regressions to wf 16 - let's wait and try the next wf version, it cannot be long now :-) ... I'm still absolutely convinced the wf project with the Intel compiler will keep surprising us.

You can force the browser to display the profile selection dialog at the start (google for this), or you can disable all addons in firefox and then try to work out what makes waterfox crash ... or you could just try another 64bit flavor like cyberfox or palemoon and see if this solves your problem.
