Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 588

post #5871 of 7360
Found this posted on the Waterfox Home page.

New version is coming and it will use the new Mozilla UI.

"Waterfox is undergoing some major changes, most importantly within the next few days the website will get a fresh lick of paint. After that, a new release as well with official language packs (about time!).

Stay tuned...

Edit Saturday, 21 June:

Just a small edit, Waterfox will come with the new UI provided by Mozilla."

Well i finally fixed my crashing issue.

-Clean uninstall of Waterfox
-Clean uninstall of Firefox
-Reg scan to delete left overs
-Searched for directory remnants and deleted

- Final step: Installed Nightly

Bye firefox and watersquirrel ( you worked until version 18.01 then died ). wave2.gif

Tried this 'awesome' browser. rolleyes.gif

Installed it. Did not install properly. Uh oh, bad first sign. Installed it again.

Tried opening it, opened another instance of Firefox instead. Second bad sign. Excuse me, but if this browser has a completely separate executable, shouldn't it run as a different program?

Uninstalled it, installed it again. This time, Waterfox opened, without ANY of my plug-ins, etc. Third bad sign.

Tried opening Firefox, Waterfox opened instead. Repeat, same results. Fourth bad sign.

Unistalled Waterfox. Opened Firefox, all of my profile info is GONE. Just as if I had installed FF from scratch.

Who was it who said you could program again???

First off, before you dump all over MrAlex, you should have made sure to back up your Firefox profile, because it has been explained a few times in this thread that Waterfox uses the "standard" Mozilla supplied pathnames for user profile info.

Who said I didn't have my profile backed up? I did, and everything is fine, now that I uninstalled everything and started from scratch again.

As far as your other beef, why in the world would I check a 588-page thread on completely unrelated website prior to installing a product that has no 'known issues' on its original product page?

Please show me where it says I should come here first - or for that matter, where does it say that there will be ANY problems with my install (other than a missing dll error)?

Thread Starter 

I'm back guys! I've got a Waterfox 30 test build:

Download Here (Note: This is a RAR5 archive, so use an archiving tool that supports this format).

Performance should be best yet, I've been working on this release for a while. I've also switched memory allocator to tcmalloc.

 

Now as for what's happening with Waterfox:

 

Monday (fingers crossed everything goes well!), Waterfox is getting a brand new website, which looks great from what I've seen! Waterfox 30 will coincide with this release, as well as proper language packs!

 

Also if people could test out the Q&A site, that would be great.

So far, so good thumb.gif

Thought I had a bug at first but quickly realised it was down to my userChrome.css customisations not playing nice with Australis.
Interestingly, I don't actually mind Australis so much on Windows, yet I can't stand it on my Mac.

Performance definitely seems better too!
