You can download 9.0.1 from a link posted a few pages back and manually update.

Using Waterfox 9.0 & 9.0.1, unable to download Thunderbird via http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/.
The download button is not rendered, also clicking on download hyperlink does not lead to same download page as with other browsers.
Thanks. smile.gif
I found that I get the same problem with Firefox Nightly 64bit & IE9 64bit as well. So its not a Waterfox problem.

Hi, a few weeks ago I switched from Firefox to Waterfox. Waterfox somehow uses the existing Firefox installation which means that all my addons/extensions (includeing quakelive) were available in Waterfox and worked just as fine as with Firefox. So I was happy until the quakelive update this/last week came out. I can't seem to get it work with Waterfox. If I try installing it via Waterfox then I will always get stuck at the "wait for installer to run" page. No matter if I run the installer as admin or standard user. I press "repair queklive", it installs but the quakelive.com website won't reload/go forward. If I reload the page, it wants me to run the installer again.

I then tried the update via Firefox. Worked fine and I could play quakelive.. but only with Firefox. Waterfox doesn't seem to work anymore with quakelive.

Anyone had simliar problems with quakelive & waterfox? Any fix for this?

Thanks

Yes, you can't use 32-bit plugins in a 64-bit browser like Waterfox. It's a common issue people trying Waterfox encounter and need to understand that many site's plugins will NOT work in Waterfox.

I was able to play quakelive with waterfox.. until an update of quakelive got released.

Well is there at least a way to run waters & firefox at the same time?

@edit: isn't flash a 32bit plugin as well?

I have downloaded Waterfox (as I have 64bit windows 7) but I want to be able to switch back to FireFox if something goes wrong or some AddOn or Extension doesn't work. I understand that in order to do this I need to 'create separate profiles' - I've never done this before, so are there any instructions on how to do this anywhere?

I did look in the FAQs but there was nothing about how to do this in there.

Help?

No, the plugins listed on the download website are for 64-Bit versions of the plugins.

Each of the 2 Flash player programs (for IE, a control activX, and for FF and others, a plugin) is created/updated in the 2 editions : 32 and 64. A good solution.

Flash

For Java you must decide it manually
