The reason Alex hasn't compiled 18.0.2 is tomorrow, version 19.0 of firefox, will be released. Be patient. Alex has a lot going on so have faith!

Why does Waterfox/Firefox initially open up so slowly, IE and Chrome open instantly for me. After the program is opened though any other Waterfox/Firefox window will open instanltly, it' just the first one.

Firefox (and thus Waterfox) has always been slower to load on a cold boot than Chrome/IE but it has gotten better over the last year or so thanks to Project Snappy. Firefox 19 does include several bug fixes which slightly helps startup performance.

From what I gather, I should be experiencing CPU spikes but I don't.

The only major difference I can see is that I use Windows 8....?
I'm also on Win 8 and have the problem.

If someone could give this a look, I'd really appreciate it. A lot of text, I know, but it's to try and clearly explain a few simple issues.

Every time I update Waterfox, I get the same two/three issues: The first is that it gives me the MinVersion and MaxVersion error (i.e. for this update it was 18.1 and 16.1). So I do what people suggest and run a clean install of waterfox, which sort of fixes that problem. But as soon as I do that, when I click on the desktop shortcut, I get the missing icon problem on my taskbar. The reason for this is because it's running as firefox.exe, and I know this because when I pin the open program to the quick launch part, and then try to run it again later, it says, "firefox.exe cannot be found."

I'm almost positive all three of these issues are caused because of a firefox.exe file that Waterfox wants in its Program Files directory. I've solved all these in the past by copying the newest Firefox.exe file into the waterfox one, and then setting its icon to the waterfox one, but I would much rather have a more permenant solution, and solve this at its source (rather than 'treat its symptoms,' so to speak).

Anyways, I post this because I get the feeling you guys know what to do and I appreciate any help you guys have to give. Thanks!

I'm running:

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit
90GB SSD Corsair Force 3
Radeon HD 6950 1Gb
8Gb 1333 RAM
750 GB WD HDD

is there anyone using facebook video call with waterfox ?
post #4818 of 7370
I see cyberfox updated to 19 yesterday and PaleMoon 19 comes out Friday the 22nd.]
post #4819 of 7370
I did some tests: I still have micro-freezes with Firefox 19 and many tabs. frown.gif
Waiting next version.

Firefox has always had performance (lagging/freezing/etc.) issues either when opening multiple tabs or having multiple tabs open at the same time. Again, this is getting better over time thanks to Project Snappy.
