Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 202

post #2011 of 7371
Leftyb - Hate to do this to you but I want to make sure you do/did a complete uninstall. First, uninstall Waterfox then do the following:

1) Open Windows Explorer and click your c: drive to highlight it.

635

2) Click Organize in the top left corner and select 'Folder and search options'

588

3) Click the View tab on top and select 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'

4) Click 'Apply to folders' on top and then 'Apply' at the bottom. Now you should be able to see all the folders and files that need to be deleted for a clean install.

700

5) Open Program Files and look for a folder that says Waterfox or Mozilla Firefox. If you see them, delete the folders.

6) Open Program Files (x86) and look for a folder that says Waterfox or Mozilla Firefox. If you see them, delete the folders.

7) Open Users folder and click your account/user name (For me it's Rockin' Jerry in the pic above).

8) Open Appdata then Local and look for a folder that says Waterfox, Mozilla Firefox or Mozilla. If you see them, delete the folders.

9) Repeat step 8 for LocalLow and Roaming.

10) Now you have completely uninstalled and cleaned out everything left behind by Waterfox/Firefox. Try Installing Waterfox 11.0 and see if the menu works properly. If not, then let me know.

P.S. When Waterfox/Firefox is open you can hit the ALT key to show and hide the menu.

It's ok to ask the question. Yes, I did a complete remove of the program and users folders without success. Alt is what I have been using, I am very familiar with keyboard control.
post #2013 of 7371
Strange. Looks like everything has been tried so far without success. Have you tried going to options, selecting Advanced on top and click the General tab then clicking the 'Use hardware acceleration when available' and restarting Waterfox? Try it with it on and off. I can't think what else to try. It's not the add-ons, a clean install should have fixed it but didn't. If the 'hardware acceleration' setting doesn't fix it there's really nothing left. This only happens with Waterfox 11.0, right? Did you also try disabling any anti-virus or malware programs that may be running to see if that may be it?

Hardware accelleration was it! It was enabled, with it off, the menus work fine. What a mess! Thanks for the help. Have to make sure that one gets logged in the right place as I'm sure it will come up again.

Thanks,
Bryce

That's great! I'm glad I was able to help. So simple but yet one of those things that took a while to find out that was the problem. thumb.gif

Waterfox is full of crap.

Copied the program directory of Waterfox 11 from my Server 2008 R2 install into only my XP x64 install and the browser works flawlessly.

Just another case of an arbitrary limitation with the installer.

Might I suggest an installer option that says "You are attempting to install this on XP 64-bit. While this is an unsupported operating system, you may install it at your own risk" and then OK / CANCEL.

So that way if XP64 users want they can use Waterfox, if they don't then the installer will abort and they can use MSIE 64-bit or just use 32-bit Firefox.

Thread Starter 

Visual Studio doesn't allow the installer to target 64-Bit Windows XP. You can still run the program though if you find out where the installer extracts the files.

I guess it's some kind of memory access thing (exception 0xc0000005 indicates that) between xfire, which "monitors" any launched/running applications and Waterfox itself.

Edit

Same thing happens with alpha firefox-14.0a1.en-US.win64-x86_64 from Mozilla.

I have Xfire (1.149) on and Waterfox works just fine. Did I miss something... or?
