Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 531

post #5301 of 7341
Using Waterfox .24, when visiting this add-on page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-tab-bar-with-one-tab/?src=search

...it says the add-on isn't compatible with Firefox 14.

Oh... the user agent override string says "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120709 Firefox/14.0 Waterfox/14.0" No wonder...

Ok, I changed it to "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20120709 Firefox/24.0 Waterfox/24.0/" and all is well.

Yeah, I don't know... I thought maybe it was because of using an old profile, but I've been using v18 with it since v18 came out and I don't remember ever changing the string. I just noticed I have the installer for v15 archived so I know I used it with that also. Very strange...

Glad to see that everyone is sorted. So what do people think of StartPage? I was considering DuckDuckGo, but the search results weren't the greatest, so I went with SP instead. Any feedback in that regard?

Thank you very much for the new release smile.gif

I have a question. I use Waterfox 24, kaspersky 2014 and i want to keep Firefox 24.
The safety add-ons (Safe money, virtual keyboard,...) don't work in Waterfox but everything work fine.
If i start Firefox after closing Waterfox, Firefox ask me to authorize the installation of Kaspersky add-ons.
I don't understand why ans i wonder if there is a way to solve this issue.

Thank you again

That would be because Waterfox and Firefox share the same profile, when Waterfox runs, it deems the add-ons incompatible so it disables them. Then when Firefox runs, it detects disabled add-ons that work with it, so asks you if you'd like to re-enable them for use with Firefox.

 

Hope that makes sense!

Yes, that make sense.
I will have to choose between Firefox and Waterfox. Security vs Speed.
Great work anyway.
Is it possible to create a profile for each one so this would not happen ?

Yes, quite easy actually. Just edit the shortcut for Waterfox by right-clicking & selecting Properties. In the 'Target' box, you will se the path to the Waterfox program in quotes. After the closing quote, just add ' -P waterfox' (or any name you wish, other than 'default') without the quotes. The first time it opens, it will create a new profile directory for the named profile, separate from the Firefox one which will be called default. I've left out some of the technical details, but that should do what you want.

 I personally really like DuckDuckGo, one of the few search units that don't track everything you search for and brings up lots of links. Startpage is cool though and the release is working well for me :)

Can you please add the link to 7z (zipped) version of Waterfox 24 please?
