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.

Huh? Banned for just posting benchmark results?

Obviously it didn't happen, but when the uncertainty about the wf delays and tensions were high everybody who wrote that he/she experienced issues with wf not occurring in other ff flavors or that wf is actually behind in some benchmarks was suspected to be a troll or agent of the enemy (i.e. palemoon or cyberfox)... some people see this thread as excluding discussions about wf's performance and issues, but just to support or praise wf (I actually don't know what the original intent of the thread is/was).

Fortunately, this phase seems to be over as it has gotten clear that the current problems with wf support or release delays aren't made up and we now all can wait and see if and when something happens again - and I'm saying this with all respect for mralex' great work and complete understanding for all possible issues that prevent people from supporting projects for free.

look at this image..

i opened i lots of video tab, then watched all and closed but waterfox doesnt clear cache

after 30mins still uses almost 2gb of ram

is firefox like that ?

Ok first off I think you probably have an entirely different problem than the browser. But to determine...

1. What add-ons are you using?

2. How many youtube tabs did you open?

3. Which version of Waterfox are you using?

4. Are all of your plug-is (Java, Flash Player, Silverlight) up to date?

5. What OS are you using? From the screenshot I'd say Windows 8.

 

Now I'll do a test with 10 Youtube tabs with video loaded and several others (14 tabs) on my laptop which is running Windows 8 Core 64-Bit. The number of tabs which while lower than my average couple dozen tabs at any given time should give you an idea. I will post results in a bit.

 

As to the debate over which is faster? I say Waterfox may be a little faster than the comparable version of Palemoon. I don't know about the Nightlies of Firefox x64, Cyberfox (might have to try it out while I await an update for this) or the latest versions of Palemoon.

I do know one thing. I have never had the problem of needing to close the browser because it uses so much RAM windows has to force it to close (cough *chrome*) even if I have the same exact tabs open in each browser (not both browsers at once). I've never had Waterfox go over 3GB even with several dozen tabs open. The other browser *cough* chrome uses much more.

As long as Waterfox stays reasonably up to date and fast with the Intel compiler I think memory issues shouldn't be a problem smile.gif

Yes, it is - but Mozilla is constantly working on ways to reduce the memory footprint and do garbage collection more often, but many of these improvements haven't made it to stable yet - you can use the 64bit Nightly though.

My definition of "reasonably up to date" would be that it doesn't have any known security issues - so either wf is updates to a current stable ff version or security fixes are backported. Both is not the case for the last months, so running a bare wf w/o noscript, click to play and so on in the open internet on is risky and probably not a good idea. So it's good to know mralex is still working on wf, and his last post indicates it cannot be long now until a new release.

So I guess Alex is waiting for Firefox 21 that releases next week on Tuesday. It makes sense to wait and not release a build, instead of releasing a build now and then have to release another right after that.

Can anyone confirm/agree with this?

Your guess is as good as anyone else's, last thing MrAlex said about Waterfox development was almost a month ago.

Here's hoping either way. I'm starting to get fed up with Firefox crashes when it hits the 4GB barrier again now, so it would be nice to have 64bit Firefox again.

I'm just using Nightly x64 23.0.1 while Waterfox is in hiatus.

Working really good for me!

I don't know if it matters until the supposedly short time until the new wf is out - but there are two other stable 64bit compiles (palemoon, cyberfox) available if you don't want to use nightly which sometimes has problems with addons that arent't updated to match the newest codebase.

Only mralex could confirm it, but I can certainly agree with it - it makes sense to go straight to wf21, so the wf community will eagerly await this date! But please don't pressure mralex for updates, so should any unforseen problems arise, it's still possible to skip right ahead to wf22, see https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases :-)
