Actually done quite a lot of extra work on this even if it's just a bug release. Will be going to release on Thursday. Friday new website will launch which you can see here:

http://213.39.50.27

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks clean and nice. As for WF itself I'll wait until you go to production before I give it a try. It is good that you're back on a regular quick-release schedule though smile.gif

EDIT: I see you use Profile Guided Optimization. The author of Pale Moon warns "even though [PGO] relies very heavily on the machine the browser is compiled on - which would generally not be a good measure for a browser that is used over a wide array of different systems", so there is a small chance a subset of machines could experience reduced performance with WF because of compiler-directed optimizations. There is a discussion on StackOverflow about it.

I'm not an expert, though, and you may have already tackled and dealt with this issue.

Does Waterfox use it's own profile or does it use Firefox's?

Waterfox uses Firefox's profile, there is a way to create a seperate profile but I'm on my phone so can't search the thread.

I had a browser crash recently and when I restarted Waterfox it came up with the "this is embarrassing" page but restored my tabs ok. Everything else seems to be fine (history bookmarks etc) except now my titlebar says I am running "Mozilla Firefox" instead of "Waterfox".

I have confirmed in Windows Task Manager that it is definitely Waterfox and it still has the correct icon. I have also tried restarting with addons disabled but the "Firefox" title remains. Renaming my profile and creating a new one restores the "Waterfox" title, but this must have an explanation and hopefully a fix which doesn't involve playing with new profiles.

Running waterfox 32.0 with Classic Theme restorer (although this was disabled in the "addons disabled" test above).

Good to hear Mr. Alex and thanks for the update. The new site looks cool, as well as seeing more indication of the forthcoming Mac release of Waterfox...looking forward to that. There is already a forum on Overclock for the Mac release if you haven't seen, here. As a side note...Waterfox installed fine on the Windows 10 Tech Preview and has been running quite well in the search for other software updates that haven't fared so well in the transition. Thanks again Mr. Alex.

New build works fine, thanks for all of the hard work.


I still have the same Youtube issue when hitting the back button however. \

I think that new Waterfox icon too dark.

Ok thanks for all the feedback so far. And yes I've had a Mac build for a while, but it requires an external Framework and finding a way to bundle it is proving to be such a pain especially with the new Gatekeeper update.

 

Okay guys so we've got two versions of 32.0.3 that are ready for release, the one which gets release just depends on who's faster: A PGO version and a version without PGO. Could someone run some external benchmarks and see which runs faster for them?

PGO

Non-PGO

 

When I benchmark PGO seems faster but that's because it was profiled in this computer.

Hi, just wondering if I've posted this in the right place, is there a proper support forum I could take this too?
Many thanks
Bob
