I could do, depends how complicated of a task it'll be. The reason a dialogue pops up is to ask whether to remember your selection temporarily or not.

Also, the HTML5 player has gotten a lot better, especially with firefox 36. 60fps youtubes are a treat. Its also MUCH lighter to run than flash. Starts faster too due to VP9

That's more like it, mate smile.gif At least we're on the same page now and you were able to reproduce it. I'm downloading ublock now and will let you know. Is ublock the best ad blocking plugin for FF/WF though?

Does youtube default to using HTML5 content nowadays?

@MrAlex

I just got a notification for the 36.0.1 update and told it to apply it. It downloaded and applied flawlessly but when I restarted WF, I got this error:



I checked the version after I clicked OK on this error and it stated at 36.0. How do I fix this?

 

Is this error still occurring? I've just checked the update file and all the necessary files are there. Could an AV program be blocking it by any chance?

The error message when trying to install after extracting is "Sorry, Waterfox can't be installed. This version of Waterfox requires Microsoft Windows XP x64 RTM or newer."

I am running Windows Vista x64 Ultimate.

 

Hmm looks like the installer is still blocking Vista! What a pain! Does the portable version run for you though?

I tried re-running the update and it worked the second time around. I guess it was just a hiccup.

@Morphello

By the way, are the default setting of ublock pretty much good settings already?

Observation on Flash Streaming Issues.

Seeing the number of Flash and streaming issues being posted, I thought I should share this as it might assist in a final fix for the issues.

I had to disable hardware acceleration for Flash on one of my computers today to get videos to stream.

I suspect that one of the Windows updates from the March 10th patch Tuesday changed a file or registry setting that impacted Flash.

The computer with the problem is running Windows 7 Home Premium.
My other computers are running Windows 7 Professional.

Thanks again for your time and efforts.

This "fix" has been posted on several other websites multiple times. It seems to be a fix for some and does nothing for others.

Yes, I understand that the fix has been posted.

My point is that streaming was working fine until the March Patch Tuesday Windows Updates.
One of the 27 updates broke streaming on one of our computers but not others.

My hope is that this additional data point may help resolve the streaming problems.

I have a similar issue to what was happening to me in the 35.x versions, in that it's causing a GPU driver crash, but at least now it's only crashing occasionally, and only on exit so far.

That means I can actually use the browser, but it'll hate me stopping. lol

It's amazing and frustrating how "Security" updates seem to break a lot of unrelated things. I recently found out a Vista security update makes some fonts look seriously super ugly in some games. I think it may even be affecting Windows 7's fonts too.

By the way, are the default setting of ublock pretty much good settings already?

Yeah they are. The automatic lists seem to block the majority of nasty content of the web. I haven't had to manually block anything or find a separate list yet. I find the default adblock plus and other derivative settings tend to screw up a lot of websites for me, most notably HardOCP (just the banner for some reason).

The only issue with ublock is that to get the latest, you have to manually update from their github. I'm not sure if there is some way to automate it to take the latest xpi from the page. The reason for this is the mozilla addon approval process is really slow, and the updates come hard and fast for ublock.

Did you ever have to use the advanced mode?

Thanks for the tip. I didn't realize that I might've downloaded an older version from mozilla's add-on website.
