win x64 nightlies resumed yesterday. i'm using it at the moment. so far so good. WF18 is my default browser tho.

Try disabling it and see.

Interesting. Glad they didn't leave it too long. Perhaps there was something that required more resources in another area for a time, or a blocker cropped up.

Ok, i'm back to WF 16.
It's not possible to work with 18. It hangs to much for a couple of seconds.

Something seems to be wrong since I updated to 18, javascript seems to not work (reddit and the "load more comments" links in particular), and when I open Waterfox I get 2 icons in the taskbar, the pinned one I used to open it and a new one that disappears when I close it. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Did something go wrong or am I missing something?

Unfortunately I can't really help with the Javascript issue as I've never experienced that, but as for the two waterfox icons in the taskbar - I've found you have to unpin and re-pin every time you install a new version of Waterfox.

The only thing I can think of for Javascript is re-installing & creating a new profile.

Problems! frown.gif

I like to install Firefox 12 (or now, Waterfox 12) because it is the last version to separate the "memorize download and browsing history" options. I've never had problems then upgrading to later versions.

But when I tried this with Waterfox now (having always done it with FF12 before), I ran into some problems. (Note" Method of upgrade was to download WF 18 from Sourceforge and perform a manual upgrade by installing it to the same directory as WF older version)

Basically now WF keeps asking me every time on launch if I want to make it the default.

Additionally the pinned taskbar icon belonging to WF 12 doesn't want to go away! So now I have two pinned icons, one which just will not go away even when manually unpinned.



EDIT:

Even more aggravating!

I found out how to force unpinning from the taskbar by manually deleting the shortcuts out of some AppData folder.

NOW when I run Waterfox from the Desktop shortcut, it re-pins the wrong version!



EDIT 2:

It looks like when WF 18 installed, it didn't correctly remove all traces of WF 12. Is it safe to use the uninstaller or will I accidentally take out WF 18 too?

There's something weird going on and I'm really stumped and a bit desperate... uninstalling Waterfox, deleting the profile entirely and reinstalling solves neither of my issues... I still get the same problem with XUL incompatibility Quantum Reality posted about and reddit and some other sites refuse to load correctly, something is wrong with I'm assuming is javascript but I have no idea what to do about it if it's not something in the profile or that uninstalling doesn't solve.

The really frustrating thing is it was working perfectly yesterday with Waterfox 16 but now not even going back solves it. It's also a problem with regular Firefox now, but not Chrome. Something seems to have gone terribly wrong in my registry or something... any help or suggestion at ALL about where to look at would really help me out, I use reddit for work and this is kicking my ass.

WF 12 should have been uninstalled before you installed 18.0.1. You'll probably find some previous WF 12 files are now conflicting with the new ones.

My advice would be uninstall WF 12, Uninstall WF18.0.1, then re-install WF 18.0.1, this should hopefully resolve your issues.

In my experience normally WF's installers correctly manually upgrade over previous versions so this is a little vexing.

Especially as I just reinstalled Win7 last night.
