Waterfox 55.0.2: 22 August [Firefox 64-Bit] - Page 636

post #6351 of 7359
I don't really see the use for waterfox anymore now that Mozilla has brought back the 64bit version with their nightly releases.

I'm not sure why you don't have that DLL file, it's in my Waterfox install directory dated 06/11/2014. Did you download a portable version by any chance? It's possible that version doesn't include the required Intel redistributable libraries for that to work.

If that's the case, you can just download the libraries directly from Intel here & install them (I've linked to the version used for Waterfox version 33.0.2).

Having said that, I've never bothered using the Waterfox updater, I just check back every now and then to see if there's been a new release or not.

Last time I used Cyberfox it had a ton of issues and I ended up having to manually go through my registry to fix all the problems it caused and a ton of sites would not render correctly, after those monumental muckups, I lost any confidence I had in the developer and I don't ever plan to use it again.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the official stable Firefox 64bit Windows release starting with Firefox 37, considering it's been 64bit on Mac & Linux for ages now it seems long overdue.

It's not the portable version. It was working for a while, I think, and then suddenly stopped. Checking the folder, I have one libiomp5md.dll but the date is 12/10/2014 (I'm guessing the second number is the month in your format, dates look different around here) so an older version apparently.

Interesting, you're correct about the date format - it's from 6th November 2014 - if you view file properties, then click the details tab it's version 5.0.2014.401 for my copy of Waterfox.

I just tried running updater.exe, it did nothing (I'm assuming because there's no update available), but I certainly didn't get any DLL errors, so I'm guessing somehow you've ended up with outdated DLLs in your install directory.

I'd be tempted download the Waterfox 33.0.2 installer again and re-run it, you won't loose any settings etc. and hopefully that should overwrite any outdated files. (Make sure to quit waterfox before installing if you do go that route, else the installer won't be able to overwrite the files). Alternatively I believe the Intel redistributable libraries link I provided should also fix the issue (unless the older dll in the installation directory ends up taking priority over a version installed elsewhere, which is possible).

No, it was when Cyberfox first came out. The developer clearly did not know what they were doing and it created a load of registry entries that it should not have and the uninstaller provided did not remove them. It also used a non-default user agent string which broke many websites.

Just because you've not had a problem, doesn't mean it doesn't/didn't exist, please don't talk about things you clearly have no idea about, as all it does is make you look very stupid. rolleyes.gif

Anyway, this topic is not for talking about competing browsers, that should be done on their respective forums, not here so let's get back on topic...

When there is, I'm sure MrAlex will post here. Most likely with a new version of Waterfox to download.

I have been a supporter of firefox before it was even named firefox. I have also been an early adopter of the waterfox project and have been a loyal user even through the almost 2 year hiatus of updates. However, ever since joining mozilla this browser has really been in the dumps. It is so slow that ironically I am using palemoon to post this here.

I am having difficulty coming to terms with inability of waterfox to perform basic browsing. If the project can't keep up with mozzila's release schedule then it needs to open the project up or ask mozzila for help. Otherwise it shoiuld think about a conscious uncoupling.

Going from a stable updated waterfox to a browser that is simply unusable should never happen period.

I am using the latest Waterfox and it is not slow. Maybe you have a bad install.

Bad install? I never heard of that in a browser before but ok . But it is running sloppy on 2 separate computers that have nothing to do with each other and are never connected to each other n any way. My gaming rig and my work laptop. Granted one is slower than the other but tabs should open super quick on my gaming rig where it is installed on my ssd drive. Specs in my signature and my work laptop is only 3 years old albeit it is only a HP Pavilion g series, 64 bit, win7 and compared to what is being built nowadays it could be considered last generation stuff inside but for email, basic browsing, linkedin, twitter the browser is just not performing very well at all whereas my palemoon browser which I installed at the beginning of the summer as a backup browser is super fast. I am going to install the nightly 64bit firefox and start trying other 64bit browsers and I also will try to reinstall this thing. I am at that point of no return and it has happened a few times since the merge.
