Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 529

post #5281 of 7360
Love the new version of waterfox.. It's swift, smooth and works flawlessly..
Only issues I have is that it wanted to install under program files (x86)\ witch was easily changed. And that the profile directory seem a bit fuxored..
Other than that it seem to be working just fine.. Silverlighyt, java and flash works just fine..

Great work Mr.Alex..smile.gif

Okay guys, try this installer:

Uninstall any previous versions of Waterfox.

 

  • I've fixed the dialogue box.
  • There was an issue with the plugin-container that I fixed that might be what has affected people
  • I have no idea what is causing this profile error, it seems to be relating to the branding issue that's come up but no fix is available (I don't know how aware Mozilla are of the issue)
  • For the above issue, you can still use Firefox Sync to have your profile synced across more than one browser.

 

Let me know!

Trying it out now. thumb.gif

Edit: It runs amazing, sir. It seems to be a tad bit speedier, as well. This might as well be the full release.

Alright. I tried the update that you just released (I appreciate your dedication to this project) and I was still having the issues with Silverlight. HOWEVER. After some thinking I came up with a workaround which worked for me, so I'm content as far as the performance and functionality at this point, however I'm still confused by this whole thing. I ended up having to change the user agent from the default string to Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; x64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 Waterfox/24.0. After that it worked perfectly fine. What confuses me is that Palemoon x64 works just fine without modification and taking its user agent and putting it into Waterfox didn't work; I ended up using the user agent from Firefox x32 initially before playing around with it to get results I was more thoroughly satisfied with. Anyhow. Hopefully that provides some insight into something and can serve as a solution to anyone else with a similar problem.

I solved my profile problem by changing in profiles.ini
It's located in
Code:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Firefox

It looks something like this when editing it in notepad.
Code:
[General]
StartWithLastProfile=1

[Profile0]
Name=default
IsRelative=1    (Before change)
IsRelative=0  (After change)
Path=firefox/profile.name    (Before change)
Path=M:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile.name  (After change)
Default=1

I have my profile on an encrypted drive at work. But all you need to do is enter the path to your mozilla profile.. Should be something like
Code:
Path=C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile.name

Is this profile problem affecting all people who installed the new WF?

Thanks for the profile tip. That got things to work quick and easy.

Only noticed 3 things so far: Silverlight, Icons and Speed.

Silverlight: 5.1.20513.0 is loaded, and seems to work on one of the aforementioned test pages (with the bubbles), but the Microsoft page does not think I have a compatible browser. They have a note on that page that ONLY IE supports 64-bit versions of Silverlight. It will not even let me download an x64 bit version.

Icons: Other odd problem, when I first ran Waterfox, and it created a new, empty profile, the browser buttons did not render properly. The minimize, maximize and exit buttons on the upper right corner of the window were all invisible. Mousing over showed an orange/reddish glow behind the window, but the button never appeared. Maybe related to not finding the profile? After I specified the location manually, and changed IsRelative from 1 to 0, everything else seems to work fine: Flash, Java, all my addons.

Speed: Upon first loading up (I have about 290 tabs open, I was in middle of testing something else), it loaded very slowly. Slower than official 32-bit build of Firefox. Subsequent loads are a little faster to prompt for master password, but are equally slow to open the main window after. 15-20 seconds.

Anyways thanks again Mr. Alex. I look forward to the official release. thumb.gif
