Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 591

post #5901 of 7359
Hey guys, I cannot run any 64bit firefox after 28. So currently I'm using Waterfox 28. When I run the new Waterfox v30 all I get is werfault.exe in task manager & nothing else.This happens for PCXFirefox, FBuild Firefox, Cyberfox i.e. all 64 bit Firefox after 29. v28 run fine as hell. Any clue what the problem could be?

My work hours increased and I want to spend time with my son and GF. Unfortunately the mobile site doesn't have most of the mod tools so I retired as I wouldn't be able to give position the time it deserves.

I almost unretired last month as my work hours dropped again but had to retract it as a few hours later I was told the hours were going back up this month.

Suspect something in your add-ons or profile conflicts with the Australis interface.

Backup your profile either manually or using a tool such as MozBackup.

Remove all of your add-ons. Make sure to remove all themes and visual enhancements.

Uninstall all older Firefox versions and branches.

If you have the need for a 32-bit browser, install Firefox 30 then Waterfox 30. If not, then just install Waterfox 30.

If that does not clear things up, uninstall and choose the option to remove your profile. (You did back up your profile.)

Install Waterfox 30. Make sure it opens.

If it still does not work, I would scan for malicious software and perhaps run chkdsk on the drive before trying anything more.

If Waterfox 30 opens with a clean install, start restoring your profile.

If Waterfox crashes after your profile is restored, then you know that the problem has to do with a corrupt profile or an incompatible add-in that is still there.

Nope, tried all that. Doesn't work. I first thought it was a corrupt profile so deleted everything @ profile dir. No Start. Then I deleted the Mozilla folder in AppData. I found out that new 'Mozilla' dir isn't even created i.e. the 64bit Firefox or Waterfox doesn't even access the profile. It crashes before that with no error messages just a 'werfault.exe' in task manager. So no profile related thing. Also 32bit Firefox/other optimized build of Firefox (32bit) work fine. So I don't know what to think. May be clean windows 7 install would sweep away this problem? But I don't want to do that as everything is working fine.

Found this on Technet.

"The werfault.exe is used for Windows Error Reporting. It is a feature that allows Microsoft to track and address errors relating to the operating system, Windows features, and applications. It gives you the option to send data about errors to Microsoft and to receive information about solutions. Look in the Event Log which applications crash.

Try turning it off temporarily and see if this will fix the problem.
a. Click Start and type services in start search and press Enter.
b. Locate Windows Error Reporting service in the services list
c. Right-click on it and click Properties.
d. Open "Startup type" list and select "Disabled" and click OK.
e. Check and see if you are still getting the werfault.exe error."

Sounds like a Windows system crash related to the new build of Mozilla.
Check for an update for your video driver.
How much RAM do you have? And, how much is available for Windows?

You should also post this on the new Waterfox page Q&A section.

You won't believe it but it is disabled. I usually disable non-essential services like printer, indexing, error.... There is no BSOD, no freeze, no nothing. Just that Waterfox doesn't startup & werfault in task manager thing.
My system is i3-2120, H61 mobo, ATI 6850HD 1GB graphic (problem present with old & new drivers), 8 GB DDR3 ram, 2 TB HDD... May be starting error reporting service will give me meaningful msg. Isn't this problem just weird.
Thank for helping me. Will post on Q&A.
