Classic Theme Restorer, Xkit, and Flash Video Downloader -- nothing new.

Waterfox 38 is "Not a valid Win32 application" upon trying to open Waterfox.exe after upgrade. Vista 64bit. I assume it's do to issues with Vista since I have only been able to run version 35.xxx. Everything after that either causes weird text graphical issues or just won't start frown.gif

Is there a plugin that can disable embedded Youtube videos unless I click them? The problem I'm having is if I view a thread that has a lot of Youtube videos, the page will freeze until every video is loaded. This is not just on OCN, it's every forum.

Try Flashblock! smile.gif

"Note: Flashblock does not work with Javascript disabled or with NoScript installed." <-- Not strictly true, it's just that NoScript will block any JS invoking flash, so NoScript will take priority. For any NoScript-whitelisted sites Flashblock should behave normally.

Also, to force Youtube to use Flash, do this: Type about:config in your addres bar, and in the search box (accept the warning), type foundation and look for “media.windows-media-foundation.enabled”. Toggle that to “false” if it isn’t already set.

Aside: The above should work for Pale Moon users, as well.

Has anyone noticed this strange context menu issue where upon right clicking there is no option to refresh the page until you click another tab or open another tab? Instead I only get the option of stop loading. It happens a lot browsing ocn and its annoying as heck.

Yes, Since Waterfox is a 64 bit application, it will come up as not being a valid Win32 application.
Most likely, Windows did not register Waterfox as a 64 bit application when the update installed.

You can usually fix this by downloading and running the full installer rather than the update.

I think once I had to uninstall the old version of Waterfox manually to get the new version to register properly as a 64 bit application.

It claims it blocks HTML5, but sadly it does not, or I'm not setting it right. Forcing youtube to use flash kind of defeats the purpose of using Waterfox.

Why does Waterfox 38.0 run the GPU at the low-3D power state (1177mhz) continuously?

I tried out Firefox Beta for a bit and saw that it downclocks the GPU as it should to 135mhz, but in Waterfox it's stuck at 1177mhz constantly.
Memory clock runs at an increased speed as well, from about 305mhz to 3500mhz.
When the 38.0 update came out, I went back to Waterfox to see if the issue was fixed and it appeared to be the same as the 38.0 Firefox Beta for a bit, but now I have the same problem after installing the new Nvidia driver.

Already tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, Waterfox, and Nvidia drivers, nothing seems to change when I use Waterfox. frown.gif

Please look into this Alex, I'd love to keep using Waterfox!


Ok, figured out what was causing it. If you have [Prefer maximum performance] in Nvidia 3D settings in the Nvidia Control Panel as a global setting, a separate profile has to be made for Waterfox where Adaptive is selected for the Power Management Mode.
I think Firefox does this when it is installed, whereas Waterfox doesn't.

The reason why forcing flash is suggested is that I don't otherwise know how to block automatic HTML5 playing.
