Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 577

So now that 29 is out in the wild now, Australis coming? wink.gif

I just hope everyone doesn't start bugging Alex about wf 29 because FF29 is out. I'm sure he'll be releasing when he can so I hope we can sit tight and wait.thumb.gif

Hello, i just logged in here for a simple message.

Please, PLEASE, don't integrate the new Design of FF29 into Waterfox.
It lacks so much functionality and looks more like an abortion of chrome.

I've been using waterfox for quite a while now but this is the first update (28) that's given me any trouble that I recall. It just stops working - so says the error message - and I have to start it again. This seems to happen several times a day - sometimes with multiple windows and tabs open.. sometimes just one. Anyone else having this problem?

Honestly? You might want to use Pale Moon instead if esthetics are more important, as Moonchild has said he will NOT incorporate Australis UI features into it.

If you want a very fast 64-bit variant of Firefox, Waterfox is for you. smile.gif

Australis isn't that bad. That said, those who want the older interface should checkout the Classic Theme Restorer extension.

Yeah, after spending a day with ff29, australis isn't that bad and you can always customize it to your liking. Change is hard for some people but sometimes necessary.
post #5768 of 7359
Australis is OK.

What is needed though is for addon developers to update their addons to work better with Australis.
post #5769 of 7359
That'll take time but it will be interesting to see what happens. FYI, Cyberfox just came out with a new update (28.0.1) and it has it's own profile. I had to import all my old bookmarks.

I agree, the only thing I really disliked about Australis was the tabs.

Fixed that right up and made my bookmarks bar auto-show/hide (with a 1.25 second delay before appearing so it doesn't pop up when I don't want it to) by throwing together a userChrome.css.

I'm on my Mac at work right now rather than PC at home (which I have yet to test it on), but you'll be able to see the sort of thing I did with my tabs either way.
