Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 533

The jumplist is still missing, not sure if it's a bug or if it was intentionally removed.

I can't see that Win8 would handle it differently ... are you using the latest install files for WF as per post #1 ?

I would also suggest to uninstall all other versions of firefox/nightly & also delete any traces left behind (eg AppData)

I'm using the latest install file, yes. Also, there were no Firefox or Nightlies installed when I was installing WF. Frankly, I don't feel like deleting my profiles.

Make a copy of profiles directory under
Code:
C:\Users\UserNameAppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox
, Then uninstall all nightlies and old versions of Waterfox. If asked first try to not let it remove userprofile. If that don't work make sure the copy is same size as original files and then let it uninstall userdata to.
My Waterfox also is used as default browser now for .url files and is found in default program wizard.

Who can confirm the following?

When having a tab open and hovering your mouse over the tab previews on the taskbar then the text on the whole browser window change to a bolder blurry looking font.

Taskbar Previews:


Before mouse-over:


After mouse-over:


I don't recall this happening in the previous version(s) ... not a train-smash.

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.

Ok, so I'm an idiot. I woke up this morning with this in my head and I remembered that I had changed the version number so a theme (that supposedly was incompatible) would work (and oddly enough, works now with 24).

Sorry about that...

is this ram useage normal, with about 50-60 tabs open?

the amount of ram waterfox uses seems to increase over time, while it's running... almost as if it's not releasing the memory as it should....
I even closed like 10 tabs, and the ram used only went down by maybe 100mb...

50-60 tabs ... Seriously kookoo.gif

Tested with 50 tabs - getting ±980mb usage ???

I multitask...
anyhow, at the moment, with the same tabs loaded, it's only using 2 gigs of ram... but the difference is that waterfox has only been open for ~2hrs. previously, it had been open for ~16 hrs...

I'm experiencing the same observation even with Firefox, it tends to increase RAM usage over time even without doing anything. I also have lots of tabs open. What could be causing this?

I've noticed it with Pale Moon. Nothing seems to truly free up RAM unless I close the entire browser and then reopen it. Firefox's code probably inherently has some kind of memory leak in it.
