Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 597

post #5961 of 7359
Yahoo was nagging me about out of date browser too.

I installed the User Agent Switcher addon.

For Waterfox 30.0 I removed the reference to Waterfox in the string and saved it as "Firefox 30.0 x64".

The user agent string now reads: "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:30.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/30.0"

Yahoo didn't like the reference to Waterfox in the original user agent string.

i also had the useragent problem in yahoo calendar, i used about:config to add a string variable general.useragent.override and set it to

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1;x64; rv:33.00) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/33.0

same as in my firefox nightly 33.01a. i'll change it now to 34.00 wink.gif

Thread Starter 

Waterfox is actually ready this time! I'm just updating language packs and making sure everything is ready for a final release.

 

I keep an eye out on all emails and ways I offer support, and if I can I reply on how to fix things. The problem is, I get so many support requests for such silly things that a simple 5 second search would solve, so I just ignore it otherwise I'd be spending all my time answering everything.

 

Another thing, Waterfox isn't just Firefox recompiled. It took a long while and lots of modification to get Waterfox to be as fast as it is. Many bug reports with Intel and Mozilla were filed and fixed trying to get everything to work! I can't count how many hours of work have gone into getting Waterfox to what is it. I just never mess around with the UI because I find no need to, so people don't realise how much I've done because I'm just trying to give them the same experience they're used to.

If you can fix my problem in 5 seconds ill donate a lot of money to future builds.
However you cannot. I also cannot either after weeks of trying things.
It sure would be nice to install it and go back to using it.
Until never, using Nightly .thumb.gif

Alex,

I FULLY appreciate all of the work and effort that you put into Waterfox!

I do try and answer questions that I believe I can help with as a way of contributing to the community.

Keep up the excellent work!

Chas

In my opinion, Waterfox is the best internet browser available. I personally have never encountered any problems, and I see no reason to use regular Firefox over Waterfox. If it wasn't for battlelog requiring 32 bit broswer, I would never use anything else.

Check out Battlelogium - it works pretty good as a standalone browser for Battlelog and with Steam integration.

No, but that doesn't mean I like wasting space.
Even with a multi-monitor setup I'm always out of space.

The built-in glassmyfoxfeatures are incomplete:
