Thread Starter 

Hi everyone I'll answer all your questions shortly, I'm just busy getting the next release ready!

Go to configure and js/src/configure

CC_VERSION=`"${CC}" -v 2>&1 | sed -nre "$_MSVC_VER_FILTER"`

 

Change it to:

CC_VERSION=`"cl" -v 2>&1 | sed -nre "$_MSVC_VER_FILTER"`

 

Boom, you can now compile with ICC (if you look in the configure files I've uploaded, you'll see this..)! All the branding files are in the branding folder. As for the Makefiles, I couldn't possibly list them all, because I sit and watch the compile and each time there's an incompatibility I set CC=cl and CXX=cl whenever ICC can't process a file. I've spent many hours changing the relevant Makefiles for this.

 

Why don't you download the source I just uploaded, try and compile it with ICC and then find that...it actually does compile! That's because it's the same source files I've used.

If you're not sure how to build Firefox:

 

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Simple_Firefox_build

 

You seem to be criticising me without knowing what you're actually looking for. I don't have time to list every single change, because I spend so many man hours changing so many things to get ICC to compile. And every time there's a new release I have to re-do it all again, because the build structure changes so often.

 

I have no reason to hide anything, but you're just being extremely pedantic and not even over anything. That's the source I used to build the current version of Waterfox. If you have a conspiracy that it's not...there's not much I can do to change that then I'm afraid!

Welcome back MrAlex. Hope your exams went well.

There's a couple of things that need attention.

1. What happened to the patch for the user agent issues in Waterfox 26?
2. Any news on Waterfox 27?

Apart from that, I'll leave you with this quote. It's particularly relevant given the context of the previous replies.

that is the code difference of firefox 26 release candidate 1(AKA Code used for waterfox) VS the officially released firefox 26 release candidate 2 it also shows the code changes to the NSS module

yes i know how to build with intel tools plus what changes need to be made to build firefox with intel tools

again 3 main configure files are missing from the source tree plus
Code:
CC_VERSION=`"cl" -v 2>&1 | sed -nre "$_MSVC_VER_FILTER"`
these changes are missing from the provided files

the beauty of open source software applications is transparency its free plus anyone can take it modify it or use it in there software as long as they maintain the transparency of the code modifications plus adhere to the licensing

yes i did download and guess what it does not build its missing files listed above.

If you're not sure how to build Firefox:

actually what you just said is a total lie the source code you just provided is not and can not be the source tree used to build waterfox 26 that is available for download because let me say this as simple as possible again so there is no confusion of the facts.

start waterfox then type in the awesome bar about:support then hit enter
now click on the page then hit the end keyboard key or just scroll to the very bottom of the page
now under Library Versions of waterfox 26 available for download look at the NSS versons waterfox says 3.15.3
now repeat the above step for the officially released version of firefox 26 ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/26.0/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Setup%2026.0.exe

the official firefox 26 NSS version on the released version of firefox is ...... 3.15.3.1 this number is different to waterfox 26

now for the epic part the source code you uploaded to codeplex the NSS version of the source code is different to waterfox 26 publicly available for download but as you say thats the source you used. https://waterfox.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#security/nss/TAG-INFO if this code was used then waterfox would have the same number.

i know what im looking for its relatively plain and simple the modified source code that was used to build the current released waterfox 26 its that plain that simple thus a perfectly legitimate question that should not be so hard to manage it can be as simple as zipping up c:\Users\Alex\Downloads\mozilla-release after you finished building the release

there are only a few .pyc files generated in that tree the rest are made in the objdir so that c:\Users\Alex\Downloads\mozilla-release can be zipped up then posted then you dont have to worry as you are providing all changed files been that you cant keep track maybe the addition of source and version control might make your project easily more manageable plus give more depth to the build process this can help will change history too.

this also is the good part about open source all these little changes tweaks adjustments are transparent plus publicly visible just like stipulated in the MPL these changes you made should be in that source tree you uploaded that is one of the main reasons i asked for the source code.

so this is no way a personal attack its just simply asking for the source code with the modifications made to it like defined in the MPL

i wish i could share you quote(I have no reason to hide anything,) well it seems you do for one you uploaded source code thats not the same used for the current released waterfox you wont provide the actual code that build waterfox 26 with all its changes so you are obviously hiding something or dont want to release something maybe a special code tweak made but with all the above facts that are not rubbish or the rambles of someone who has no clue its plain undeniable true unless definitively proved otherwise i have been a programmer for a little over 10 years 2 of my jobs are software design and development the courses in currently doing are because im going to move in too the gaming industry why would i make any of the above up just over anything or nothing its all legitimate information plus requests.

Do you really have so little self confidence that you have to find a great peace of software, compiled and released to the masses totally free and then complain and nothing but complain?
Go away, none here is interested in what you have to say. If it was up to me you would be kick/banned from this forum..

Keep it up Mr.Alex..smile.gif

I am interested.

I do care about privacy, and since Waterfox's default search engine is StartPage, maybe i am not the only one here ?


Thank you Mr Alex for building Waterfox, keep it up ! thumb.gif
Thank you nick fuller for looking at how safe my browser is from backdors or missing security fixes, it does matter for me, keep it up thumb.gif
(even if you could, maybe, use more diplomacy in your requests rolleyes.gif)

Yeah, and? Firefox's default page is also a start page. You can set it to be blank any time you like.

You can also change the search engine via about:config and searching for "search." Quite self-explanatory from there on. SearchPage uses custom Google search for it's searches, however, it doesn't record your IP, like Google. If anything has backdoors into your browser, it is, believe it or not, Google.
As for security fixes and whatnot, Waterfox is, more than likely, going to have all of the security fixes and bugs that Firefox of the same version has.

Could we maybe move onto another topic. Like... I don't know. Oh, anyone else been having issues with Youtube videos not loading properly and rerouting you back to the homepage? I have the issue in base Firefox as well, so I am assuming it is a Youtube bug. (Yay, Google, yet again.)

That could be the Flash plugin. Remember when it would "randomly" change window focus if you didn't have protected mode turned off?

I am sorry nick fuller, I didn't in any way mean to come at you like that.
That was just unnecessary.. I like security and sure want my browser to be safe. However I trust Mr.Alex and I am so fed up with people throwing accusations around not thinking about that he do this for us on his precious free time. Therefore I think he deserves respect. Once more I am sorry I came after you like I did. You did not deserve that.

Keep it up Mr.Alex, looking forward to Waterfox v27.0.thumb.gif
