Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 582

post #5811 of 7358
Change the User Agent to:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:29.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/29.0 Waterfox/28.0

That'll fix the issue smile.gif. When WF 29.0 gets released, the message will automatically disappear as it'll be the latest version of Firefox/WFv

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 Waterfox/28.0

Thing is I installed Waterfox 28 on a fresh VM install of Windows 7 64 bit and I still get the same message.
Chase's browser detection is clearly stupid and appears to take the last part of the useragent to determine the browser. As Waterfox does not match what they're looking for, it displays that message. Due to this, what DazzaRPD suggested above will not work.

I confirmed the following fixes it:

1) Open new tabs, in the address bar type: about:config (and hit enter).
2) Under search, type agent
3) Check if general.useragent.override is listed, if it is not, right click in the white space, select New -> String
4) For "Enter the preference name" type: general.useragent.override (and click OK)
5) In the next box that appears, enter: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 (and click OK)

Hope this helps. For the record, this isn't an issue with Waterfox as such, but rather sloppy programming on Chase's part.

I'm SERIOUSLY hoping that the bugs that Firefox introduced with their new version 29 are NOT incorporated in the future updates of Waterfox. I can NOT get Roboform to keep it's toolbar visible, the button layout sucks, and I can't get "text and icons" on my toolbar anymore. Any developer with any idea of customer retention would know that you don't forcefully take away functions and features. An even better example is trying to teach a non-techie person how things still work, but look completely different and are in different places than they used to be for the last several years. Try teaching a 70+ yr old person THAT! -ugh-

Firefox had been my go-to browser for a LONG long time. Now, Waterfox has my vote, unless they go the same route. I love it so far, but time will tell! (fingers crossed that a dev will read this and at least consider it)

@Buzzy62: You should probably use Pale Moon, then, since WF will continue to be a straight compile of FF using the Intel compiler to get 64-bit optimizations.

Thanks for the tip on Pale Moon! I'll take a look at it now and get started with it.
post #5817 of 7358
All right, I can't get the flash plugin to work. Everytime I try to install it, I get an error message, and the box says to "Close this window and try again." Can anyone help with this? Thanks

=============================================EDIT====================================

The exact error message is this:

Installation encountered errors
Error has been encountered. Close this window and try downloading again

==================================EDIT======================================

All right, I found out that the file is no longer stored on Adobe's servers. That's why the download won't work. But it still pisses me off that the WaterFox website's admin won't update the Flash plugin download link. mad.gif I mean seriously, even a link to labs.adobe.com would be better than hosting a download link that doesn't even work.

With that being said, I'm currently using Adobe Flash 14 BETA. Anyone else who's interested can download it from adobe labs themselves. Both the 64 bit and 32 bit installations are packaged into the installation executable. So when you install Flash 14 BETA, you will be installing both 32 and 64 bit versions. And no, there is no option to opt out of the 32 bit installation. I tested it, and it works fine. Here is the direct link:

http://labsdownload.adobe.com/pub/labs/flashruntimes/flashplayer/flashplayer14_install_win_pi.exe

Also, here is the page link:

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html

Well, hope this helps. And hopefully, Waterfox's website Admin will update the plugin page link. It's both annoying and confusing for us newcomers.

Adobe has updated their installers to now include both versions within the same file. They won't conflict with one another.

Any reason why you didn't just download the latest version of Flash directly from Adobe's site? They now bundle 32 and 64bit in the same download.

All you have to do is go to: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ in Waterfox. Or did you specifically want the beta version for some reason I missed?

When it comes to Flash, etc., I always checkout Corrine's blog for direct (clean) download links and uninstallers, etc. http://securitygarden.blogspot.co.uk

If you still get problems, drop back to one of the more recent ESR (Extended Support Release, aka 'Corporate version') versions, 10.3 or 11.7, details of which can be sometimes found by dredging back through the Adobe blog here: https://blogs.adobe.com/flashplayer/ or the equivalent ftp server.
