i don't use it, but general guidlines for plug-ins:
====================================
if it is a 'plug-in' (ie. adobe flash') it needs to be an x64 version. 32 bit x86 versions will not work in an x64 (64 bit) firefox based browser. they are native intel machine code.

addon 'extensions' (ie. 'adblock plus') are bit level independent and work in either 32 or 64 bit firefox based browsers. they are written in javascript.

the unity version number also may be critical and you may need a version specific to win8.1.
====================================

try googling 'firefox plug-in unity player x64 win 8.1'

How do I import my bookmarks from a file? I tried to copy/paste the contents of my old profile folder to my new one but that did not work. I had 18. something and I'm trying to use the newest version.

edit: even tried to copy just the bookmarks file and that didn't work either

That's an annoying "feature" of Firefox in its latest versions. You need to "export" the old bookmarks in the old version to an HTML file and then re-import them in the new version.

That said, those above links may help you get the json file or whatever it is, into the new Waterfox.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I just realized I had a 'bookmarkbackups' folder with a backup from yesterday. Does Firefox backup bookmarks automatically? It must because I couldn't find an option to enable on my new version.

Just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work. With Mozilla announcing that they will not be supporting nightly 64 for windows, and their latest patch (30.a01) completely breaking it, I'm happy to see that there are great alternatives available. I installed without a hitch, looking forward to using it.

nightly 30.a1 x64 (24FEB14) works fine on my x64 system.

Hello guys,

I just wanted to ask you a couple of questions regarding some problems I've got..

Every 2-3 new pages I visit (usually that doesn't happen with pages I have previously visited) it will give me an error that website was not found until I refresh it 4-5 times.

With around 50+ tabs open it starts to lag a LOT while on Aurora/Nightly/etc with 150+ tabs I don't see any lag at all..

Thank you!

Same thing here.

New Waterfox user here.

I just tried downloading & checking out v27.0.1, and one thing I noticed right off the bat was extreme lag while using Google Maps (since they forced the new UI to be the only option). Anyway, now that you can't revert, has anyone seen major lag when trying to even move around in Google Maps on v27.0.1? This is a fresh install with no add-ons or anything yet. Computer specs aren't the problem. Maps works perfectly in IE, Chrome.

Thread Starter 

Ok I might have found out what the issue is with websites not recognising Waterfox. They seem to be looking for this:

Quote:
Mozilla/5.0 (platform; rv:geckoversion) Gecko/geckotrail Firefox/firefoxversion Waterfox/waterforversion

 

but when they find this:

Quote:
Mozilla/5.0 (platform; rv:geckoversion) Gecko/geckotrail Waterfox/waterforversion Firefox/firefoxversion

They freak out. Here's a test build:

Can anyone confirm this (apart from myself)? If so, seems like bad browser recognition to me..

 

As for the other issues, I'll look into them.
