Don't forget to install both architectures of Java.

Run the those EXEs only. You might be able to make shortcuts to them.

Thanks for the answer. but it does not work. i already tried this before posting this question.

more: I experience that. If both browsers are close . When i open Firefox , it opens firefox, When i open Waterfox it starts Waterfox.. Both browsers have (same interface/history/cookies/storepasswords)

But If Waterfox already open, and i try to open Firefox it opens Waterfox. icon and title in windows. (same interface/history/cookies/storepasswords)

Woops I thought you meant one at a time.

Normally you can't do both at a time since they use the same profile directory so whichever is up and using it at the time will be the one started and not the other.

You can get around this with what xxxhugo said. It's lets both the apps able to use the profiles at the same time.

or neither, or just one or the other whichever you need

In other words, Java is NOT required at all to run ****fox, so this advice is pointless

I've got a strange problem since I updated to 18.0.1. Waterfox will occasionally work fine for a while, but it has developed a habit of closing itself. Once it does so the first time, it won't stay open even long enough for me to select a profile before it closes again, until I reboot. I'm stuck using standard Firefox. frown.gif Halp please!

Pale Moon used to use the Firefox profile but decided to separate from it a few years ago; however, the format of PM's profile is still the same so you can have PM use the FF profile if you want (which, indeed, I usually do).

I just found out about a rather unwelcome change in FF20.

It seems that it "memorizes" the download history in TWO places, and you can no longer auto-clear the history, you must manually do so.

http://www.ghacks.net/2012/08/16/why-i-do-not-like-firefoxs-new-download-panel/

It seems to have been in the nightly builds and included into the release build of 20.

Can Waterfox remove this, or would it require too much recoding to do?

QR, waterfox is a compilation of the firefox source code, alex does not make major code changes, just tweaks to enable it to compile with his compiler version. any bugs will need to have been fixed by mozilla, not alex.

i run firefox 23.01a x64 in addition to waterfox (both using the exact same profile and addons) without any problems. history, including downloads, is cleared as i exit firefox based on my settings - privacy - history. i also use ccleaner which clears the internet and download history on pc startup or when run. your own link shows how to make ff use the older download window (which is further set not to display unless asked for) in lieu of the nasty popup discussed there.
