I've been running Nightly for years, they are very seldom not working, the main problem is that addons sometimes aren't compatible with the latest trunk code and need some time to be adapted, esp. less prominent addons other than Adblock/NoScript/... and so on. So running a stable version like Waterfox is less hassle.
Exactly my experience. When I hit issues with slowing down, I switched from WF 13 to nightly 15 x64 and stayed with that until final 15 came out and Waterfox 15 could be available based on it. (That was a point where the main code had some heavy optimisation work done).

No issues noted. But I like a stable version if I can, so I stick with WF unless there's a compelling reason (for me anyway) to use a nightly until the main Firefox release version catches up. Nightlies work well as a rule - the risk is you never quite know.....

Of course you are right

How do I change the language on my Waterfox Installation?

I have installed Waterfox 18.0.1. It is english. I want german.

So, I take the latest german language file from Ubuntu 64bit Firefox of my virtual machine.
The name is "langpack-de@firefox.mozilla.org.xpi" and You can find it on /usr/lib/firefox-addons/extensions/.

After installation Waterfox works perfect smile.gif. May be MrAlex add this in his threat starter thumb.gif.

The Cyberfox guy was always using mvsc 2012 and the C++ compiler.

16 & 17 had good results with the intel C++ optimizing Compiler, as for 18 seems to be a bit of a dud build. Nightly 19 showed better results though and your getting back to normal with 20's code just like 16 & 17. It seems the ionmonkey compiler has a negitive impact on the 18 build and build process just from my observations.

I wonder if that explains what just happened to me when I tried to install WF 18 on an older laptop that is running Windows XP x64. Waterfox 16 and earlier have always run fine on this system, while Cyberfox will generate an error when you try to run the program stating that "Cyberfox.exe is not a valid Win32 application." When I just tried to upgrade Waterfox to version 18, it installed fine but then generated the same error when I tried to run it. An uninstall of WF 18 and a reinstallation of 16 fixed the problem.

It's strange, though, that Microsoft's own tools would mis-recognize a Win64 application running on an OS that is still supported. No big deal, but annoying.

Just moved from FF17 to WF18
Now 3 finger swipe for back/forward is not working but instead it does page up/down.
Worked okay on any other programs so far (FF, IE, explorer...)
I tried changing ui.elantech_gesture_hacks.enabled to 0 but it doesnt help.
Any ideas for a fix?

You'll also notice the latest nightly for win64 hasn't been updated since the 9th...

Thanks for the new version MrAlex! I'm also experiencing the same ~30% CPU usage spikes that others reported with 18.0.1 for some reason. I'm starting to wonder if it's perhaps an Intel CPU issue for some reason? Unless I missed something, I think they've all been Core i7's that reported the issue so far.
