I have noticed an oddity when using Waterfox related to the Google Doodle. While I can view the Google Doodle and interact with it properly both in Firefox 24.0 32-bit and in IE 10.0.11 32-bit, the Doodle remains static in Waterfox 24. (I'm referring to the current Dr. Who Google Doodle over at www.google.com right now but this was also the case for the 15th birthday doodle at http://www.google.com/doodles/googles-15th-birthday).:

Sounds like you have an issue with there being no 64bit plugin.

Yeah I suspect that is the case, but I'm not sure what plugin precisely. I have Java and Flash plugins. It's not Silverlight because IE shows the Doodle fine but I don't have Silvelight installed at all. Quicktime just seems really, REALLY unlikely to me... And actually thinking about it, I just checked and don't have Quicktime installed either yet again the Doodle works fine in IE.

A plugin is one possibility but I'm also thinking there's some feature that isn't enabled by default in Waterfox, or that the 64-bit implementation doesn't quite work correctly for it. I'm not sure what the Google Doodle is relying on, could just be dynamic HTML features. I haven't tested against one of the 64-bit nightly firefox builds to see if the Doodle works there or not.

Have you checked if anyone with the 64bit Pale Moon has the same problem?

I've found, go to about:config, search media, enable support for all (webm maybe). but it's a different sound, strange.

AH-HAH!!

I fixed my issue with Google Doodle. It was unrelated to 64-bit after all. I had an addon for "Optimize Google" (an old add-on) that when it's enabled somehow prevents the doodles from working. Probably because it's modifying the source code before it's rendered.

I've disabled the Addon and found the Doodles work great in Waterfox 24.

Thanks to everyone who replied, you helped me think about it from a different direction.

Let me know if you still need help with .BMP and .SVG graphics. Manipulating them does not require PhotoShop, nor Illustrator. The free graphics editing alternative, Gimp, can work with those formats just fine, as can many others. thumb.gif

While we're waiting for version 26 to come out, MrAlex, don't you think you should put version 24 on CodePlex so people don't download the SourceForge link when they go to your website?

Hello there Alex and community;

Simple question here; this- "Added Waterfox/24.0 to user agent string to be able to identify Waterfox as separate browser" Does this mean that I can have waterfox and firefox or maybe evenpalemoon running at the same time and there won't be any conflicts? Asking because someone who uses palemoon wants to try it but doesn't want any problems. You know, they use different browsers for different things sort of thing smile.gif(:

Thanks in advance:o

Unfortunately, no. Waterfox still uses Firefox's profile by default. But it's not hard to setup where you have multiple profiles - one for each browser.

Just wanted to thank Mr Alex again for all his efforts re waterfox. I'm back on the WF bandwagon after discovering the update to WF 24 today.

Install worked flawlessly alongside with my FF25, and all my plugins work! biggrin.gif

WF24 uses double the ram (1.4G) compared to FF25 0.85G for 50 or so tabs but I have plenty.
