Waterfox 56.0.1: 13 December [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 442

post #4411 of 7371
I'm happy Alex found the time to continue work on Waterfox, no doubt many people will be happy to hear this.

All this talk of which is better is in the end counterproductive, and in some ways insults the work of all these people who do all the hard work unpaid, using their own free time, to help all of us. The truth is it doesn't matter which variant you end up using - the difference in performance if any is too small. And it pales in comparison to the effect your addons and setup will have - that is what really makes the difference.

I don't know if this is a problem with Waterfox or Adobe Flash Player. There is a patch on Adobe's site. I downloaded it, but I am getting these scripting error windows poping up. I have gone back to regular firefox until something is done to fix this. Interestingly I am getting the same popup boxes in Firefox as I was in Waterfox. Wonder if that means it is a Adobe problem?

Hi

This is a long thread. Sorry, I didn't read all the posts to see if a solution had already been offered.

In my waterfox installation, the flash does not work everytime.

eg. it worked here but not there.

Did anyone else face the same problem? How did you find ar way around it?

=============

Next,

I am unable to install firefox and waterfox on the same pc. Can it be done?

This problem come with FF also. Youtube use codec not present in FF.

Please check with FF before posting issue WF.

Just a news post to wish everyone happy holidays!

Unfortunately Waterfox 17 won't be released, but Waterfox 18 will.

There were many contributing factors to the delay of WF17, including changes to the Firefox code that rendered it unable to be compiled by ICC and VC9, but due to exams, assessments and work I didn't manage to find any time to fix it. Thanfully the holiday season is here allowing me time to work on WF18.



Have a wonderful time!

Thanks,

Alex

I don't know of any patch at the Adobe site; can you provide a link?

Also, can you tell us what scripting errors you get?

Hi, I upgraded waterfox from v12 to v16 on an old computer running windows 7 x64 ultimate and after that moment waterfox wont open.
I tried uninstall-reinstall, tried waterfox portable...but nothing.
At the moment I'm using firefox which is running without any problems..

This is what happens.
14:53:28 Starting waterfox.exe...
14:53:29 Create Folder C:\Users\George\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\dszje11e.default\startupCache
14:53:29 Create File C:\Users\George\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\dszje11e.default\prefs-1.js
14:53:29 Process Created C:\Users\George\Desktop\Waterfox 16.0.1 Portable\Waterfox 16.0.1 Portable\waterfox.exe
14:53:29 Create Folder C:\Users\George\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\dszje11e.default\startupCache

Any help?

Happy New year! Also folks I want to remind you, please don't take what I copied off the Development tab of his site out of context. He said he was WORKING on WF18, not a promise of release. Don't start badgering him, posting endlessly on here "when is it going to be released, etc", he's never really asked for help, so don't go asking him when it's coming out. If you are so concerned, read up on coding and give him a hand (well, offer to do so). Thanks and have a great 2013!

I am in no way affiliated with Mr. Alex, I am just trying to knock some sense into complainers.

Amen, lots of work goes into this and most of us appreciate it.
